Good luck on St Kilda, I hope you get the weather.

Congratulations on the 999 - but the 1k will be the sweetest! What a way to celebrate - St Kilda has to be one of the most interesting places on earth. (Psst - I'm quite jealous!) Have a fabulous time and can't wait for the report and photos.

999 that's some going. was on St Kilda exactly a year ago. Been trying to write a trip report for it recently :roll: Wanted to get on Boreray but not to be. There's a few hard Marlyns on St Kilda. A fantastic place. Good luck

Joining the chorus, congrats on the triple nine and good luck for the magic no. 1000!

You made me thinking... :problem: I never paid much attention to my Marylin stats, but now, I logged on to my Hill Bagging account and checked. Only 247 done. I'm getting lazy in my old years :lol:
