Hi K.
We were up Cruach Adrain,and BeinnTulaichean, on the same day as you.
We could have done a munro text.
It took us a bit longer, as we had three dogs who thought chasing sheep would be more fun.
Nearly lost one, slight panick!
haven't told Ashleigh that bit.
Still haven't got round to writing a walk report, still have the pics.
So it will probably be a wet day job.
Planning to head up to the Mamores tomorrow.
Martin is thinking of four or eight, but hopefully not all ten.

Stephen and I did that on the 2nd Aug. '97.
Probably fitter now, so who knows.
I don't know how much more I should be sharing with the good people of walk Highlands.
I was going to explain why we were walking in Scotland this week.
Save that for later!
If anyones up in Glen Nevis tomorrow, i'll see you there.
Cheers Bill

Looks like you picked a good day for it. We went along to do Lochnagar yesterday but the cloud was sitting just above Loch Muick, so it would have been a depressing and pointless slog for my first munro. We walked round the loch instead.
