Finally we did but I (Stella) was seperated from Ann, Sally and Kath for the last hour. A lot of trees have been chopped down on the edge of the forest which were covering the paths. [with] Stella, Ann, Sally and Kath [weather] Beautiful hot sunny day with 360 degree clear views. - Christine unable to join us a she had a swollen knee. The Chalet at Portinscale for breakfast.
