Swordfish Remains in Glen Callater

Only idiots venture into the snow covered Cairngorms in the middle of January. Having first ensured that we were both certified idiots Flash and myself headed off in search of Swordfish remains in Glen Callater, Dogbreath declined the invitation to accompany us due to a rare moment of lucidity from the mentally challenged canine. After spending hours wading through the thick snow and falling into numerous snow hidden burns we had to abandon the attempt due to a lack of available daylight. On returning to the car I found that I couldn't undo my laces as they had frozen solid! Still we did get a few Christmassy photos! Finally visited the wreck site in May 00, it's listed in Medium Wrecks.

Bah! I've had enough of this! A freezing me turns back for the comforts of home.
