I love the way dogs happily go with us wherever we go and the longer the better. Great companions. :D

Great report, sounds like an epic day and it was so warm and dry in Kintail last week. Wonderful photos and as always your dogs look so photogenic on the summits.

Great walk and report - Dogs definitely add to the photos - years ago we used to walk with a rough Collie (Lassie dog) - he did 70 Munros and got into all the shots but you had to use film in those days

Amazing feat and great pics! I did the 7 and the Saddle many years ago over two days in very nice weather too but it was not as hot. I did Sgurr na Sgine in November 2014 in superb weather - crisp, clear, velvety light. I love the pics of your dogs with their pink tongues hanging out. Great to have such beautiful companions.

I guess we're not used to this heat as weather conditions have been pretty rubbish in the last few years. But what a privilege nonetheless!
