Aonach Eagach

Good time today as Martin and I were working for Steven Fallon Mountain Guides with 5 great folk on the Aonach Eagach, possibly Britain's best mainland ridge walk. We weren't alone as Max and Di were both out with parties too enjoying what turned out to be quite pleasant weather; after early mist it turned bright with clear, cool weather and just the odd shower. Its always great to be out with a wide variety of folk and the craic was great all the way to the Clachaig for a beer! Prepare for a plethora of happy people!

 Technical bit over… lunchtime!

Slainte! (especially to Ian who had to go!)
