As for walking plans, we're thinking of going to Ben More Assynt and Conival on Saturday (2 or 3 spaces in my car for anyone else who wants to head there, I say two or 3 cause it depends on how friendly you want to get with the people next to you), doing Ben Hope on the Sunday then maybe a cheeky visit to Ben Klibreck on the way back home on Sunday. All weather dependent as usual.
John I would be up for doing BMA and Conival on the Sat. Planning on doing Kilbreck on the way up


Sounds good Steve. Prob need to leave the hostel about 8am so I'm back in time for quiz duties.


Yeah wont be a problem.

Hi everyone! Thought I'd throw my current plans into the mix. I'm flying into Inverness Thursday evening then hoping for an early start to drive up North. Hoping to do Ben Hope on Friday then probably nearby corbetts on Saturday and Sunday before flying back Sunday evening. Is anyone else planning on Ben Hope on Friday? (I'm sure Saturday plans will be sorted out over a drink or five on Friday night :lol: )

Hi folks,

I'm planning on going up Conival and Ben More Assynt on Friday, so if anyone else has the same plans I'd be happy to share the pain :)

Hi Martin,
I'd be interested in joining you for Ben Hope on Friday if that were possible. I have a car if it's needed.

I've decided to forgo the Tongue action this weekend. Had hoped to head into Knoydart to pick off a couple of remaining Munros instead, although the forecast looks decidedly pants for the weekend that too.

I'm heading north a bit early and hoping to get some hills in on the way. Hoping to do the eastern Fannichs on Thursday if anyone's interested. Will be at the Aultguish bunkhouse tomorrow night.
Also want to do Ben Loyal and Ben Hope over the weekend if we get a break in the weather if anyone wants to join me.
