Photohunt - Together

The girlies! Friends for over 30 years, we met when we started university and we try to get together about once a year. This photo was taken a couple of years ago when one of the quintet got married.

Photohunt - backwards

This picture was taken a couple of months ago as we descended Ben Ledi.
The best views were looking backwards towards the summit........

Driesh and Mayar

Driesh and Mayar are two munros (mountains over 3000ft) standing close together at the head of Glen Doll.
They are usually climbed together by heading up the Kilbo path that runs between the two then heading off to either side to take in the two hills. On our day out yesterday, we approached from a different angle by heading up the very steep Corrie Fee (a much harder but more interesting approach) then returning by the Kilbo path.

Photohunt - Near

This was as near as I got to the summit of The Cobbler (Ben Arthur) on New Years Eve. The final approach was sheet ice and just impossible without crampons. I intend to have another go at it this summer.
