I'm off on my travels again!

HERE WE GO AGAIN! Yes - I'm off on yet another hillwalking adventure with my Wingman but this time I don't have a clue where we're going! No, honestly, Wingman won't tell me! After our last adventure, which we both thoroughly enjoyed (read about it here: Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant! ) we both decided to get out more often and with this in mind, Wingman has been poring over maps and route descriptions in an effort to pick a destination which will top our last trip.

He phoned me last weekend with the news that he has found a cracking trip for us to go on - four days in well, somewhere in the highlands of Scotland! He refused to tell me anything about it simply saying that I would find it enormous fun. I could almost see his evil grin over the 'phone - he can have a wicked sense of humour at times so I'm hoping he hasn't done anything too outrageous.

He's picking me up early in the morning and, apparently, we have a five-hour drive to wherever it is we are going. I have scrutinised the map for hillwalking destinations which are a five-hour drive away and there are about six or seven we haven't been to before. I can't wait to find out which one it is!

The photograph you see here is me crossing a dodgy-looking footbridge in Glen Nevis a couple of years ago - an excellent 3-4 day trip if I remember correctly. If this trip is something similar I will be very happy!

Have a great trip. I thought at first you were crossing the carrick a rede ropebridge but there aren't any hill walking destinations close by that, that I know of.

Have a lovely time, Bill! I can't wait to hear more about your destination - once you find out!

Hope you're having a wonderful time and taking lots of photos to share with us.

MegL - I found a YouTube video of that bridge - looks interesting! BTW the bridge I'm crossing in the above photo had a notice stating that the bridge was ''in a dangerous condition and crossing is not advised'' but we crossed anyway 'cos the only other suitable crossing point was 3-4 miles upstream!
