    What a great weekend we had. An amazing place well worth the walk and paddle, superb company, and as ever rib splitting banter. Some pictures of the weekend I've pinched from Steve, Ben, and Bod, and a few from myself here and there.

    That looks fantastic! I've never been to Loch Etive but am familiar with the Ardnamurchan area, which Etive looks very similar to. Glad you all had a good time - do you do this every year?

    Looks brilliant. Might be somewhere to drop by for a day while on my way to Fort Williams next month.

    Looks like it was a great break. Pressures of work kept me away - they'll probably do for me in the end! Glad some of us were able to get away and enjoy the area. Keep posting future meets, please.

    Ooh. I could be interested, depending upon the usual caveats - location, dates etc. Hamish are you meaning Perth as a proposal?
