Wow, I didn't expect such an emotional debate over my set of complaints :lol: :lol: :lol: Many thanks for all kind words... I was a bit unwell and away from WH for a few days but back on track now and hoping for more Munros Sat/Sun.

Since the above described story we suffered another blow. We had to abandon an attempt on Foinaven due to horrendous winds high on the ridge. I haven't turned back on a hill for years. Strangely, it didn't affect my mojo this time - just made me more desperate to climb that b***dy Sutherland B***d!!!

As for the Geldie Munros, I guess some of us will like them, some will not. So much depends on weather, really. I hope those of you who haven't done them yet, will be lucky with sunshine and blue sky.

Thanks all again,
BP

First post, just to add we were at Geldie lodge this morning having camped over night on completion of both Munros.
I've come across some midges but never have I experienced the clouds waiting for us to exit the tent this morning at 5am, Linn o Dee carpark was tame compared. Got home and put up the tent in the garden and had to use the garden hose on the inside to wash away the thousands of midges that had hitched a lift back with us :(
