Snapping Stuff in Torridon

Fortunately no limbs... It's been a couple of years since I've written a walk report, mostly because I've moved south of the border and developed a new obsession with climbing ("ugh" I hear you say, "we don't like your sort here" (English, that is, not climbers)). Nevertheless th...

Re: Into the Wild White West

Cheers for all the comments guys. Still trying to pluck up the courage to get the tent out in winter. Was going to have a go this weekend but weather and other things have conspired against me (reckon I would've found an excuse to cry off even in perfect conditions though) :? . I know the feeling! I...

Into the Wild White West

Having had a few great days out in the hills the last few winters, I was proper psyched when I heard the first reports of snow in the hills. I still had a few weeks of imprisonment left in the Midlands before I could come back and get out for some winter walking. I couldn't believe it, then, that th...

Freewheelin' down to Lochearnhead

This tale begins on Thursday night at 1am, when, having just returned from a late-night curry, I had a sudden urge to pack the car and set an early alarm, aiming to tackle the two Corbetts at the western end of Loch Earn. Four hours later, feeling somewhat below par, I was up and setting off for Loc...

Re: Last-minute Applecross

Cheers for the comments guys. I think the quality of the photos is more the result of the great views we had rather than any degree of photography skill. (Point-and-shoot they call it.)

Re: A blast of winter above Achnashellach

Great to see a report from this area, and some fantastic photos from the summits, too. We went there three times last year, each mountain we climbed was in cloud and we never saw any summit views. That's just as bad as luck can be. On the other hand - a good excuse to go back :lol: That's unlucky, ...

Last-minute Applecross

We woke up on Tuesday morning to find the landscape outside transformed by a dump of snow. The fine details of the Applecross crags across Loch Kishorn were now visible thanks to the dusting of snow - really quite impressive corries. Our plan today was to head up Maoile Lunndaidh from Craig, using b...

A blast of winter above Achnashellach

It was during last week's heatwave that we were studying potential walks for our week in Kishorn, and at no point did we consider the possibility of any kind of winter conditions. Indeed, in the first two days of our trip we didn't even get a glimpse of the white stuff. With the big dump of snow on ...

A quiet corner of the Ochils

I found myself restless this afternoon - the unexpected sunshine triggered an urge to get outside. So it was that at 3pm I set off just up the road to a corner of the Ochils which I had never visited and a glen that looked really interesting on the map. The glen in question was Glen Queich - a pathl...

Re: Sunshine on Bynack

Great story :D :D I like this duo as well, did them in two separate walks. I have to go back to Bynack More and investigate the Barns a bit more. I was there on a very windy day and wanted to scramble up them but I was afraid I'd get blown over from the top... From certain angles the Barns look lik...
