I feel like just getting to Torridon will be an achievement.

We have had a couple of dropouts so there will be a few spare beds.

What a shame, Rod :( I was hoping, we could tag along with you up another Corbett...

Kevin is working on Friday again (Xmass madness in delivery department has already started!) so we will most likely arrive Fri evening/Sat morning depending on weather. So far, forecast is for high winds on Friday, rain on Saturday. But it may still shift. Hope dies last :lol: :lol:

Planning to repeat a nice Corbett or Graham if Sat weather is not as bad as predicted. There are a few very good Subs in the area, too. Pick & mix :D

It's a great shame, the company would have been good, but I've got stitches on my leg to be taken out on the Friday :(

Looks like the Macleans can manage this one if Bod gets out of school early enough :D We'll just kip in Hector so no need for Beds. Looking forward to seeing you all :D :D :D

Sorry to say I will not make this one now. A number of reasons, not least the fact that we have just finished a gruelling HMIE inspection week and I can barely scrape myself off the floor let along face a long drive in the dark and most likely **** rain to Torridon tonight. I am sure I will have a few beers and drams in your honour at home tonight if I make it that far. Hope everyone has a great time. For me the long wait for a first WH meet since 2016 goes on! :(
