:shock: :shock:
Not much surprises me, but I fired up the laptop expecting to see loads of happy people playing in the snow and sunshine, and what did I find?
Nothing!
Nada!
I was gobsmacked! Not one walk report from today (well - yesterday really, seeing that it's now into Sunday).
I was expecting loads of cheering that it wasn't raining, blowing a gale - AND WE ACTUALLY GOT SOME DECENT WEATHER! 8)
Anyway, 'cos no one else has put anything on yet :( , thought I'd stick up a couple of pics from today's jaunt up Binnein Mor with Big Bruv.

We weren't sure whether we were going to get any views from the top as we looked up the corrie to Sgurr Eilde Mor.

Piggin' cloud



As we walked aroud the path on the West side of Sgurr Eilde Mor, there was avalanche debris, which we guessed was from the gales during the week. There was also debris on the SE facing top of Na Gruagaichean.

We stopped for a cuppa and the clouds started to clear.

After that, it was time to head up Binnein Mor - I hate ridge walks, :roll: :sick: but I wasn't too bad once we got started.
