Wow - that's one hell of a surprise - an extremely good one Pete I must admit.
Nice one and good to see it back on the road next year leading the 10th :clapping:

Wow Peter, that's fantastic!

I knew it could be done, it's very similar damage to what happened to mine last October. It's just tricky predicting what insurance companies will do. You just did the damage in a much more impressive way than me ;-)

Makes all that effort rescuing the car by everyone feel really great.

Yeah I visited the cave last year when you lot headed off for Ullapool. It's well worth a visit next year. There's a boat trip right into the cave if anyone fancied it. I just didn't fancy 6 hours drive home after being soaked.
