Monadhliath 3

My friend Niall wanted to do a walk on Sunday so the choice for the weekend was Newtonmore or Feshie bridge. Decided on newtonmore as the weather looked marginally better. Set off walking at 07:30 to a lovely calm day with blue skies. It stayed that way all the way through the bog and up the slopes ...

A morning at Dalwhinnie

Got off to good dry start at about 6:30, I took the bike because I thought it would be good for the descent. I started to wonder if that was a good idea after pushing the bike about half way up the very stoney track. It was handy when I got the fork in the road and the ground was less steep. By the ...

A quick Chonzie

I had to collect the family from the airport in the afternoon so wanted a quick hill I could do on the way down the A9. Ben Chonzie looked like a good choice,sat on its own it would of been a long drive to just come down for a short walk then heading home. After a few wrong turns I finally got to In...

The white mounth circuit.

An early start got me to the Glen Muick car park at 6am. Very overcast morning but it was due to clear mid morning. The walk up to lochnager was quite straight forward, can't grudge the car park charge when you see the work someone has put into the paths at either end of the walk. The cloud wasn't s...

Fiona Bheinn with the wee lad.

My son Adam (9) asked if he could come up a Munro with me. I choose Fionne Bheinne as it wasn't to high or too long a walk, I didn't want to put him off with a slog of a hill. The weather was fantastic this weekend woke the loon up at 5ish so we could get going before it got too hot. Into the statio...

Friday evening on a windy Wyvis

Headed up to Garve after work, left the Ben Wyvis car park at 5:45. The weather was mild was some slight cloud as I got further up the track a black cloud was hanging around the summit. A lovely walk through the woods while you follow the burn, a lot of work has been put into building this track and...

Came across a herd of reindeer just below the final ascent to Ben Macdui got the top just in time...

Got to the car park for 10:30 and the weather was a lot better than expected, set of along the path towards the green lochan. Got ...

A great walk even with some heavy showers.

Having read a lot of other walk reports I really fancied this ridge walk. With the weather looking ok I set off early with the dog and parked up in the Cluanie Inn. Boots on and away by 6:30. It was a lovely bright morning with some cloud, a simple walk up the road gradually climbing before turning ...

Kilbreck on the way home.

After finishing Ben hope at one o'clock I had to drive south past Ben Kilbreck to get home. I had thought about possibly doing both these hills in the same day I parked in the layby start point. The weather was brilliant and it seemed to good to pass by. Half way up Cnoc Sgriodain I started to wonde...

The first Munro ticked off.

Kept an eye on the weather throughout the wk to see which direction to go for my first solo munro. The far north was the best looking option weather wise and after reading a lot of previous reports about Hope and Kilbreck the decision was made. A good drive north, already a few cars in the carpark w...
