WOW....what a fitting end to your compleation of the Munros - well done :clap:

Thanks for taking the time out to post all these wonderful detailed reports, I've thoroughly enjoyed them for many years, and I hope you continue to keep us entertained with more epic walks in the future...Corbett bagging perhaps :wink:

I'm glad you gave yourself the opportunity to finish with views, looking in every direction for miles on end, and also to experience it all with a sunset & sunrise....a very stylish finish indeed, what memories 8)

So what emotions came over you at the time and now, that you can reflect on it all?

RH - Found out about your completion from Gammy on FB. First off, many congrats. Despite being an ocean away now, I still hope to complete, and if I could end it in style like you did that would be perfect. I can see why you took 500 photos. Truly stunning landscape and scenery. It's been a while since I've posted here or looked through reports, but I always enjoyed your reports and this one lives up to all the rest. Congrats again mate, and happy trails wherever they take you next!
