Ullapool New Year Trip
Full size photo
Scotland doesnít get any closer.
- Scottish chalet owners turn out to be very unfriendly!
- Steep hill and a full mini bus makes a smell.
Martin, Steve, Gerard, Keith and Adam. Too windy in the Fannaichs? Whatever.
Mark, Chris, Doug, Simon, Cat and Damian climbing 3 Munros in the "wind".
How Mark felt about Damoís pace setting.
Damo, Chris, Cat, Doug and Simon. Wind, what wind?
Feet get when walking through rivers when there is a bridge only 100m downstream.
A two minute sandwich break leads to a further half an hour required to warm up again.
Enable one to see into driving hail and get a frozen fringe.
The reaction to seeing the view of Ardmair bay from our chalets for the first time. There was a reason why we all slept inÖand why Martin and Chris didnít go up Ben More Assynt.
Temperature of the sea at Achnahaird Bay.
Doug, Adam and Gerard. Decided they wanted to find out just how cold the sea was in Achnahaird Bay.
Flying Malt Loaves.
How Keith looked watching his Malt Loaf slide several hundred metres down the side of An Teallach.
What the one in the blue helmet looks like(on Sgurr Fiona)
Overnight thaw = long wet walk to look at a snow climb that wasnít quite in condition, some crawling, then a two hour wait in a shed.
Everyone should have listened to Chris: Ben Hope isnít worth 4 hours in a minibus.
Tantalising when the fuel light has been on for 30 miles.
When there is a working petrol station and the bus hasnít run out of fuel.
The general mood as we left? I think so.
Returned with no scraps, missing windows, an ariel and full of fuel; a first?
Add more someone, go on
