Re: Who switched off the tap?

I had a chat with the owner of one of these micro hydro plants last year. From what I recall he said that after the weir was installed, the burn flow had to be measured for six to nine months, SEPA would prefer to get as much data as possible but pressure to get the plants up and running usually pre...

Re: Beinn Trilleachan- why always decending by the same rout

As Cairngormwanderer has pointed out I think coming East or South East off the summit may be tricky, especially if its a bit wet underfoot. I did a transverse of hill as per route below, it was 10 years ago so my recollection is a bit vague, don't remember any difficulties on this route apart from p...

Re: Beinn Bhuidhe (Loch Fyne)

I was on Ben Lui on Monday, the snow line was 500 - 600m depending on slope aspect. The cycle up Glen Fyne should be OK assuming there has not been a serious dump of snow in the last few days. View south from the summit of Ben Lui, Beinn Bhuidhe in the background. https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1631...

Re: Ben Chonzie from the north

I have done Ben Chonzie from the north but cycled in from the Sma' Glen [good estate road all the way in]. Crossed the river at the weir and ascent of hill fairly straightforward. Certainly made a change from the other trade routes though a bit longer. See map, think it was ~ 36km and just under 6 h...

Re: Glen Kinglass

Quick one - Is Glen Kinglass accessible by vehicle? Im in a Defender but I think those roads are private and/or prohibited. Im looking for a spot for a responsible overnight campground the Glen Etive area. I skimmed Glen Kinglass on a BlackMount walk once. Looks lovely, but of course, lovely places...

Re: Sgurr nan Creathreamhnan & Mullach na Dheiragain

Did this walk mid October 2005. A great walk and no real problems that I can think of. I cycled in as far as Carnach, total time from the track log was just short of 11hrs. I do remember cycling back out in the dark, was full moon so did not need to switch on the head torch until nearly back at the ...

Re: Carn Bhac Conumdrum…help required

Yes that is a good route if you are only doing Carn Bhac. If you are not cycling in then you can also do a circular route as shown below.

Re: Cockburnspath to Coldingham

I assume you are doing the Berwickshire Coastal path. Its a fairly straightforward walk so could be tackled at anytime of the year. As with most coastal walks best left for a nice day weather-wise if your plans are flexible. I did this walk in April this year, took ~ 6hrs on a nice day. [I am on the...

Re: ACCESS TO STRATHFARRAR GLEN VIA STRUY

Just to clarify the situation, once through the access gate there are no other locked gates and you can drive the 17 miles up the Glen and over the Monar Dam to the Power Station at Gleann Innis an Loichel. It is tarmac road all the way but is becoming a bit pot holed in places now. OS map of the Gl...

Re: what am I doing wrong

Are you using the latest map files direct from the Talkytoaster site? I use these with Mapsource, Basecamp and on a Garmin GPS 60CSx without any problem. Have you downloaded the correct map files for what you are using them on, the GPS version just has one large map img file where the version for ma...

Cheers, Kenny I cycled in from Moy to Corrour Station a few years ago to do Leum Uilleim. Good estate road all the way, just over 2 hrs t...

Re: Camping at the Loch Quoich dam

The best camping in the glen is at NN091016.. There are other places, but not so nice :) That grid ref takes me to Strachur on the Cowal peninsula - not exactly convenient for L Quoich! :lol: Oh I tried to get it from an online map, so I had to scroll around a fair bit to find the numbers.. :lol: S...
