I've been waiting for your Slioch finale for a while rockhopper, but this has exceeded expectations. A magnificent way to compleat, choosing to include those two fantastic looking Fionn Loch Corbetts. Not to mention the superb views and photos. Very well done :clap: !

Big, big congratulations!!! :clap: :clap: :clap:
If you're going to take time finishing your round just as well do it in style! :D
Beautiful photos - they made me think about returning to Slioch on a good sunny day (very sad, gray one when we climbed it).

So now... Corbetts and Grahams? :wink:

Looks sublime! Sunset/sunrise pictures are amazing. 8) The butterfly's a Small Pearl Bordered Fritillary. :) Also, anyone climbing Slioch should check out the Andy Goldsworthy type stone circle down and between the two tops. I came across it by accident! 8)
