So we went on the charidee walk and it was awesome. If you follow me on Twitter, you'll have seen some of these as I posted them from the hilltops. The rest I took with my "proper" camera.

The route we took was from somewhere called Threipmuir in the Pentland Hills, across the Alps and the Himalyas, ending near Flotterstone Inn. But we weren't allowed the luxury of stopping for a pint, as we then had to walk three miles over the Andes to get back to the cars.

Totally worth it.

Why on Earth didn't you stop for a pint?
In my hill-walking days we ALWAYS stopped for a pint.
Or two or three.

THAT WAS WHY WE WENT.

Oh, and to enjoy the fresh ar and the Kendal Mint Cake.

TSB - Ordinarily, I would insist on stopping for a pint, but in this case we had about three miles still to go to get back to the cars and if I stopped, I'd never get started again.

Worth it, but it'll be a while before I try that again.
