that was amazing, simply amazing, however my legs appear to be broken- to tired to type 8)

this was the map and itinery for the weekend...

Image
Wooly Itinery...

Saturday 24th April

10:30am - All assemble at car park beside Bridge of Orchy Hotel.

11:00am - Depart BofO for gentle bimble across Rannoch Moor to Kingshouse Hotel, Glencoe.

1:00pm - Arrive Kingsouse. Lunch with good beer and food.

2:30pm - Depart Kingshouse.

Bothyers travel down Glen Etive to road end and continue as follows:

3:30pm - Arrive head of Loch Etive and start off-road section. Most demanding section is here with some walk/pushing (so don't carry too much gear!)

6:00pm approx - Arrive at bothy. R&R

Sunday 25th April
8:00 - 8:15am - Depart bothy

9:00am - boat across the sea

9:30am X/C from Taynuilt Pier to Armaddy

11:00am - X/C from Armaddy through the wilds of Glen Kinglass

2:30pm approx - return to BofO Hotel. Exact timings will vary depending on weather and river crossings Only one river crossing which could be tricky, approx 8 miles from BofO. Will know severity of that before we go

Expect wet feet and tired legs at the very least.

(Note from the ken - found some way of moving the post not 100% sucessful but leaves most of it intact, hope you don't mind me hijacking your post Gaz, only way I could do it like this without loosing much)

:shock: :shock: :shock:

The "C-Word" has been used extensively (very extensively) over the last two days to describe me and my choice of route :twisted:

Not an F'n C, - just a C , so I think they enjoyed it :D

More will follow, but not just yet - brain still rattling around in skull after "The Road of Bones" and the "Dark Glen of Corpses" .

Then there were DaveG's venison poachers and close encounters with Neds, Rado's immense rucsac :shock: , strange gaelic singers, and a duck with no beak :shock: :shock:

Gazz's Walk of Pain :twisted: and TK's overwhelming supply of low cost / low durability equipment :D

May try get a few pics up tonight, but don't really feel up to moving much.

@ Robmac - good photo - quite like that look - who is it? (envelope received BTW)
