Lovely words Dave and congrats. It was brilliant to be a part of what, despite some wild weather, turned out to be a fantastic trip. Well done again and thanks :D

Well done, Dave.

It was nice to share in just a little bit of each other's journey, when Martin and I met you on Beinn Sgulaird. That was a hot day in April 2015, and we were just daring to start to think about compleating. Now you, Martin and I have all got there, but it's definitely not the end. There's still so much more out there. I've discovered the Southern Uplands and Arran, and rediscovered Wales. Friends have come along to old hills for me, but new ones for them. I'm sure you'll continue to enjoy getting out there just as much as you ever did.

There's more to life than just the hills of course, as you say. But an achievement like this is a great boost that can make you feel better about getting on with everything.

Congratulations from me too Dave :clap: ..and Im sorry I couldn’t make it along. :(

I manage up that way a few days later but not fit enough to climb any hills. I did the tourist thing and washed my shirt in the Clootie Well .. so I should be back on the hills soon.

Hope to meet you again on some lesser known ones. :D

Congratulations 8) . Quite an a achievement to fit so many people on top of such a spiky hill! I'm sure your previous reservations about finishing will look different from the other side :) .
