Sounds like you were unlucky yesterday sloosh!

I chased the best of a bad bunch of weather and got quite a good day in the cairngorms :D Only a few mins of rain and rewarded with a nice rainbow over the corries!

Too wet for pulling out the camera, unfortunately. Not that there was anything much to see.

You got a good day in the Cairngorms. :) That's what I thought I'd get, a wee shower now and again. :roll:

Hi Sloosh, Looks like quite a steep ascent. Did you walk up the ridge or the burn?

I walked up the ridge. It was steep all right... and pathless... and horrible... as you can tell, I enjoyed these munros :lol:

No need for self flagellation -- the wind did a better job with the straps on my rucksack. :wtf: :( :)
