Five of us will be backpacking to Fort William from Saturday 8th August.

If you see five soft southerners looking lost or in pain and covered in midge bits and ticks, drenched in sweat or rain (delete as appropriate), it'll probably be us.

If you shout 'Dodgy Knee' at the bald guy with the blue Golite pack, It'll be good to have a chat. Might even buy you a pint.

Hi,

Got back Tuesday 18th. Very good trip. Hard on the feet though - if it wasn't rocks and roots it was stone pitch paths. Whisky anaesthetic helped.

Also lucky with the weather. Even got a view from Ben Nevis!

Photos for you amusement: https://goo.gl/photos/Bsuuyj6jwpFc6stx8

Trip report, tv, radio and a book and movie to follow (well, one of them...)

Mike

I missed this. Well done and great photo's, brought back many memories. Surprisingly little snow on the Ben and it appears there are more camping opportunities than when we did it many years ago.
