Re: Fancy frost

This picture was taken in early 2018 of the trig point atop Ben Ledi showing rime ice projecting into the direction of the prevailing wind. Apparently it needs cold, damp and foggy conditions to grow. Not sure if it’s hard or soft rime ice - apparently there’s a difference in colour but I can’t tell...

Re: Ben Cruachan North Ridge (+ route description)

I remember over 20 years ago going to do Ben Cruachan from the North. At that time there used to be a sign at the entrance to Castles Estate stating “High velocity rifle shooting on this land at all times of the year”. 😱😱😱 Anyway I headed up the track and was a good 3km to the good when I could hear...

Individual Hill Walk Reports

Notice when I look at the walk reports for individual hills e.g. Deuchary Hill the walk I did earlier on this month does not appear - likewise with my other walks. How can I rectify this so that they do appear.

Deuchary Hill

$matches[2] First walk of the year and seen as we have to stay in our local authority area I decided I’d go up to Dunkeld and do Deuchary Hill. It’s not high, only 511 metres, but I reckoned with the amount of snow we’ve had recently that would be hard going enough. $matches[2] And so it proved to ...

Re: Your coldest day?

Sorry tweedledog, the pooch wasn’t there at the same time as me or I might have wanted to dog nap him. I was in the main building and even then to get out of your sac and go downstairs in the middle of the night to the loos was an ordeal. What there was around the refuge was a load of alpine coughs ...

Re: Your coldest day?

Like Mal Grey the coldest I’ve ever felt on a mountain was on Mount Toubkal in February 2009. It was such a beautiful day walking up to the Refuge de Toubkal , sunny and warm, however as soon as the sun went down the temperature absolutely plummeted. Certainly never expected so much snow either. Pic...

Re: Carn Na Caim & Co

Carn Na Caim was only boring because you did it as per the book and it told you what to expect. Instead why not try doing it from a different direction - Cuaich Cottages - the start of the walk for Meall Chuaich. I’ve done it twice from there. Both times I’ve followed the track South to the Allt Coi...

Re: MacGillicuddy Reeks

I posted a few reports back in May / June of 2018 on when I’d been over in Eire in 2012. They’re in the Outside Scotland section. There’s the Hags Glen Circuit from Cruach Mhor round to Beenkeragh, Brandon Mountain, The Glencoaghan Horseshoe otherwise known as the Twelve Bens or Pins, Mweelrea, Hung...

Re: Lochearnhead Corbett

Save it for a good day because I’m sure when you’re at the top you can see Lochs Earn, Lubnaig and Voil. 😊 Enjoy anyway 🙂

Re: GPS Tracker

As far as I’m aware all GPS tracker systems are by monthly subscription. Because I normally walk alone in the hills I carry a PLB (Personal Locator Beacon) which when triggered transmits a unique serialised ID to the Search and Rescue satellite network which can pinpoint your location anywhere on ea...
