Henry's Munro Compleation


For the second time, I have climbed a Munro in a group as large as five: The first, with Pat and our boys, and my last, with Mike Milmoe (who helped me invaluably), my wife Pat, who accompanied me on 191 Munros, and Hazel Gibbs and Pauline Wilson from SYO

And then on to the Loch Fyne Oyster Bar!


Note: cycling to gate where you are asked to leave your bike is mostly tarmac, rough but hard surface for the last 500 m, and no steep slopes.  The track to Inverchorachan could be cycled, but has stiffer climbs.


And next day, despite rain forecast, we went to Killin and up Meall nan Tarmachan, for Pat's 192.

Web-Blinds: Isn’t Andy doing well? He’s through to the quarter finals now, which means it’s time to announce the lucky winner of our bottle of Lanson Wimbledon Champagne - drum roll please! …Congratulations to Henry Marston – a message containing .........
