Congratulations Rockhopper! :clap: :clap: It must feel good being over that 100 mark - just 182 to go! :lol: :lol:

Great photos on a brilliant sunny day! I bet you were glad your hat found its way back to you! :lol:

I was up the Buachaille last December - it was a white rather than green - but the snow made the going a lot softer! :lol:

All the best for the next 100+! 8)

We should turn down a few of these windfarm applications and just chain you, Malky and Monty to some treadmills instead. :lol:

Thanks everyone for your comments - they're much appreciated. :D
I really enjoyed Glen Etive and would recommend it to all. Here's hoping the next 100 don't take another 25 years :?

These photos are AMAZING!

I was up there last August on a duller day weather-wise so it's good to see what it might have looked like! :D

Brilliant Rockhopper :clap: not just the 'ton' but the trilogy - I'm just back off holiday and ploughing through walk reports but all three of yours are real crackers - an excellent few days work :D

Great report and fab photos. Bit of a long walk to do these 4 in one outing, I split them up as I'm just a 'beginner'. :)

Love the picture strapped to your rucksack celebrating the 100 :clap:, great idea. I think you should have kept it on until you reached Stob Dearg though.
