A walk in the Fannichs

The weather here as been wet, wet ,wet, however on Saturday we had our first really good day.  A walk was planned and we set off for the Fannichs, near Ullapool on Saturday morning. The day looked really hopeful for 'Cloud free Munros' but once we clinbed to 600m the mist came down, still a lovely walk was had and we made our vehicles at 5pm as it was getting dark.

2 munros and a top   Sgurr Breac 999m, Tomain Coinich 935m and A'Chailleach

Climbing on Sunday

The weekend weather here was quite nice, well it is November. On Saturday Carol and Andy did  a couple of hours on the climbing wall and then did a 9mile off road run. Had rain and wind, but it had been nice till then.  Last few miles were in darkness, good job Carol took a headtorch. We saw Karen, Pete and Matt on their Mountainm Bikes doing the same route.

On Sunday Andy went to Sheildaig (Jim's village) with Pete, Karen & Matt and Jim took us to one of his local crags for some multi-pitch climbing. Rain held off until we were packing up at 4-30pm. 2  big group climbs and abseils and then Andy climbed with Jim and did some leading under instruction.

Find pics

Hi blog readers, we've been away for a while, went to Cavtat (pronounced Tsavtat) in Croatia. Bought a new camera to take with us-one of these tiny, point & shoot affairs which was great, but it's been proving very difficult to download and post the pics here.
Possibly too many pixels?

Anyway, try this link

BTW, any tips on quicker up/downloading would be appreciated. Maybe a more up to date pc might be the answer.

Croatia is a beautiful place and we'd highly recommend it.

Sunday night sunset

 Reminder of the w/end weather as it hasn't stopped raining since Monday.
 Probably an exaggeration but it seems like it!
At least the wind has calmed down.
