Hi SJB , it was a great day out , we spoke in the lay-by on A82 & i followed up about 15 mins after you ,you`re in the centre heading back to the south summit- i was accompanied by Oskar my schnauzer.


I`ve put a report in my walk diary - as this was the 2nd time in 4 days i`d been to Ben Challum :? !!
