Summit of Great Mell Fell       Tom M1EYP

A short drive from Little Mell Fell G/LD-037 took me next to the start point for Great Mell Fell G/LD-035.  This walk was more like 40 minutes each way and care was needed on several steep muddy treacherous sections.  Seven QSOs were made from the summit - one on 2m C4FM, the rest on analogue FM.

Next was the two hour drive to Ayr and the Gaiety Theatre for the gig. A fter soundcheck we adjourned to the local Wetherspoons for haggis, neeps and tatties.  Finally up to Glasgow for the night’s digs.  I would be heading even further north on the tour the next day - via another activation of Arthur's Seat GM/SS-272.
