Was a fab day out Andy , my 1st munro was Ben Vorlich at Loch Earn - so Marc went that wee bit better,but he`s 26 years younger with less miles on the clock & fit as a fiddle , both my bhoys had a ball -as did Oskar ,as usual.

Not just for reaching 100 but for getting a 19yr old boy over the SGR!!! :lol:

I don't think there are enough free pints in the world to get my 19yr old to do this!!!! :shock: :shock:


Hi Polly , previously i`d never imagined i`d ever be up a MOUNTAIN, let alone have climbed 100 Munros -so i`m quite chuffed with myself. It`s amazing what will power & effort can do . Both boys did very well :clap: but probably won`t be back up a hill untill springtime ........ maybe sooner ?
