My Completion...Ladhar Bheinn from Corran

I loved your panorama "Beautiful Knoydart".
You have enriched our lives with your tales of adventure, and that finale will certainly inspire me to rouse myself to knock off the remaining 197 ...

Your description of your emotions on nearing the summit almost had me going too....

If and when you revisit sone; Hopefully you get a view from all those you never got a view on before.
Well done again

Really hope to meet you one day, I am sure many feel they have been robbed of a party here but this was all yours and well deserved. It certainly doesnt sound as if it is your last day on the hills which I am sure we are all glad about. Good luck for the future.

Fantastic report and photo's almost tempts me to take up camping - but then again.
Fabulous hill to finish on and wouldn't expect you to tackle it the 'usual' way.

Ladhar Bheinn's a superb hill and an inspired choice to compleat on. The clag was down when I was up there many years ago, so it's nice to see the views in your photos, some of which are absolute stunners. I'll join the long list of people who've thoroughly enjoyed reading your reports.

Can I just check: did you take the prayer flags down with you? From your report it sounds suspiciously like you didn't, but you don't definitively say either way so I'm hoping that you did. Leaving litter - including prayer flags, which have become a bit of a trend in recent years - at summits is something which a lot of people, me included, have strong views about. Taking such things up the hill - however well-intentioned - and then photographing them on top is one thing (albeit not something I'd personally do), but they should definitely come back down in the rucksack. Leave nothing but footprints and all that. Anyway, here's hoping that's exactly what you did and they did come back down with you.
This got me wondering what folks with strong views would think about planting trees out there?
