I always wonder especially at this time of year, what mushrooms are
edible. I see loads. A free bounty of food but I don't know if they're
edible or not? Seems such a waste to walk by them if the are.
wouldn't want to learn the hard way!

BE WARNED THIS IS EPIC!
Not epic in the sense of Beowulf or Lord of the Rings but just EPIC in size. It's probably the longest post I've ever written and the longest thing I've written since I was pupil in higher english. I will also warn of some choice language. If you don't like sweery words don't read on.
I'm in the mood for reminiscing, don't know why. It's not normally like me. Not normally like me to do it here. It may be that I have been regaling this tale at some point to the poor @PhilOutdoors. I say may because the last time I was in Phil's presence a pretty few beers had been drank in the land of my fathers', the 'shire of my birth and the county of my youth.
I'm unsure as to what was talked about on that last meeting it was getting a little fuzzy towards the end (A recurring theme). However it probably doesn't really matter other than it's at the front of my head rather than locked away in the dark spaces of my brain.
The story and the reason for this post, it's probably nothing of interest to anyone but myself, to put it down for prosperity. It's the tale of my first munro, my first hill of the highlands. My first.
The photograph is a give away to those that know. The mighty majestic guardian of Glencoe. Buachaille Etive Mor, 'THE' Buachaille and on that day my nemesis. Goliath versus David. Not so much for it's awe inspiring massiveness. It is massive, lets not kid ourselves, it's a hulk of hill. Or the fact that it is a big climb, 3353ft if I remember correctly. It was more to do with the condition I was in.

I had high hopes for this, not the festival itself but the post. I was going to grab hundreds of photographs, maybe even some audioboos but I failed for a couple of reasons. I forgot to charge up the iPhone, major mistake no way it was going to last a full day grabbing photographs and taking notes. The other reason the company and the beers were too good and I was talking too much. Brilliant beer festival. Well next year then.
One thing I'll give you, best beer for me by a long way was Rambler's Ruin from Breconshire. Great beer. If you can get some, get a few.
