Great report, Bod - and some fascinating skies and impressive cornices! :D I don't know about the bone. Maybe some other dog (not Ritchie) is still wondering where he left his lunch! :lol:

Is that bridge (at the foot of the Sow) new? We (or at least some of us! :lol: ) got wet fording that burn last summer! Cheers! 8)

Nice report Bod and some fine pictures too :D Ive been getting lazy with my reports recently, as I was up on these two Munros a week or two before you (did them the other way round though), but what with work and the half term break haven't had the chance to post my report yet. You certainly had the pick of the weather though, as I had quite a bit of cloud to contend with. Perhaps I'll get my report uploaded at some point :lol: These are certainly better hills than I had been led to believe too :D
