Tackling the remote stuff in Glen Affric

I love a hill. I particularly love a munro. But once you’ve done a few of them they start getting a wee bit further away and a wee bit harder to get to. The opportunities to knock off big numbers in a weekend start to lessen or at the very least necessitate a bit of imagination and creative route cr...

Re: Wet! Wet! Wet! Giving Am Faochagach Some Welly!

I intend to leave this one for the depths of winter when hopefully the worst of it will be frozen solid.

Re: WH Summer Meet - Inverie - 10-12 July 2020

The Mam Barrisdale bealach between Ladhar Bheinn and Luinne Bheinn at roughly 450m - are there any feasible wild camping spots up there or is Barrisdale Bothy pretty much the only show in town for breaking up the journey? And is it both possible and desirable to scuttle up and down Ladhar Bheinn fr...

Re: WH Summer Meet - Inverie - 10-12 July 2020

That's me paid :wink: These three munros have been on my "some day" list for a while so this meet will be the boot up the backside I need to make it happen. I intend to walk in and out from Kinloch Hourn over two days each way but I have a couple of questions for those more familiar with t...

TGO Challenge 2019

In the summer of 2018 I became quite interested in the idea of hiking right across Scotland from coast to coast and upon Googling the idea I soon became aware that this was an annual organised event that hundreds of other similarly-minded folk embark upon. I mentioned to my friend, Allan Brown, that...

Re: WALKHIGHLANDS SUMMER MEET, RATAGAN. JULY 12/13 2019

According to my training schedule I need to do a 15 mile run that weekend. I think I'll take advantage of the setting, park the car at Morvich, run along the Affric-Kintail Way almost as far as Alltbeithe, then head back west along Gleann Gniomhaidh over the Bealach an Sgairne and back to Morvich. T...

Re: AN Teallach - Glas Tholl descent

I didn't notice a path although that doesn't necessarily mean that one doesn't exist. I just trudged on down, it's steep but manageable. I remember once reaching the corrie floor it being very boggy from there pretty much all the way back but I picked a rainy day which would have exacerbated that pa...

Re: The "Singhing Sherpa" leads 5 on to Slioch

Good stuff, George. It was a windy old day once we were up on the high ground but that corrie and the high lochan are an absolute delight.

I'm not normally one for cups of tea first thing in the morning but Parminder can make one for me at Ratagan provided WADA don't show up :lol:

Re: WALKHIGHLANDS AUTUMN MEET 25th/26th Oct 2019

I'm keen but waiting for the Glen Ogle 33 Ultra date to be announced before I can commit to anything. I'll be in touch once I know.

Re: WALKHIGHLANDS SPRING MEET, APPLECROSS – 5th-7th April 20

I'll be late-ish on Friday. I finish work in Dundee at 4pm and will be driving straight up the road after work, so if anybody round this neck of the woods is looking for a lift then give me a PM. No idea what my Saturday plans are. As usual I will rely on other people's sense of inspiration, see wha...

Re: Training for Kilimanjaro

Training isn't easy because you can't really train for the altitude in the UK. Regular hillwalking and occasional jogging will help. Don't forget to throw in one half-hour session a week of upper-body & abdominal work like press-ups, tricep dips, sit-ups, planks, ankle-taps to give you more all-...

Re: Trail Running

The route is available at https://trailevents.co/events/glencoe-scottish-highlands/ Ok, now I'm confused :lol: I did the Glencoe Marathon last year and am doing it again this year. But the one I did was in September and followed a different route to the one in your link. Are there two Glencoe Marat...
