Meall a' Ghiubhais and Ruadh-stac Beag from Kinlochewe

I was camping just above the beach at the east end of Fionn Loch and had climbed the two Beinn Deargs the day before - now it was time to return to Poolewe and head to Kinlochewe. At 5am, I wolfed down a large bowl of granola and a cup of tea, then quickly stuffed everything into my large and uncomf...

The two Fisherfield Beinn Deargs from Carnmore

These two hills are usually climbed from the north from Corrie Hallie via Shenavall bothy, or from Gruinard to the northwest, but an easier and slightly shorter day is possible when climbing from Carnmore Lodge, just over the causeway at the east end of Fionn Loch, where I was camped. The previous d...

Late summer on the Glen Galmadale Horseshoe

It always feels like a bit of an adventure to start a day with a ferry ride, even if it is only 5 minutes! The forecast looked quite reasonable, staying dry with some clouds as I drove off the ferry at Corran and turned left for Inversanda and then left down the narrow B8043 beside the shore of Loch...

Aonach Shasuinn and Carn a' Choire Ghairbh

I set off early from Cannich down the scenic but in places, badly pot-holed Glen Affric road, reached the large car park at the end and debated whether to use the bike for the first 3km. In the end I decided to walk in - but in hindsight it would have saved at least 30 minutes walking in total as th...

Beinn Bhuide from Inverie via Mam Meadail

The forecast was for a mostly warm and sunny day as I set off at 9am on the main path out of Inverie to the NW along Gleann an Dubh-Lochain. After the monument on the knoll above the path on the left, I looked for the path to the bridge over the Inverie River and eventually saw a tiny cairn and a sm...

A wheely nice way to climb the Gaick Pass Corbetts

18km by bike, 10km walk (approximately) Continuing the better than average summer weather in 2021, yet another period of high pressure was forecast for 4 or 5 days, so I searched online for any campsites that had vacancies - all full except for Cannich. That was quite fortunate as I hadn't climbed a...

Late summer sunshine on the Innses

After a superb morning climbing above a cloud inversion on Ben Tee, I was headed to Spean Bridge, where I dropped in for a quick coffee and cake before driving to the car park just after the first bridge on the road to Corriechoille. Having read several accounts of how bad the track is from the latt...

High above the clouds on Ben Tee

Having read many trip reports, I thought it was about time I actually wrote one myself! 2021 was the year that I kick-started my attempt on climbing all the Corbetts. Prior to this I had very slowly accumulated 48 over a period of 25 years, 18 of those upto 2005 whilst I was concentrating on the Mun...

Re: Ben Tee from Laggan Locks by bus

IMG_20210902_104657330.jpg I climbed Ben Tee on 2nd September and had similar experience to you in relation to paths and dense bracken lower down, although as often is the case, easier on descent than ascent. I enjoyed the good path once above the bracken despite the murky conditions. The mountain ...

A belated hello!

Greetings fellow walkers.... Although I've been a WH member for a few years, I've been lying low and just picking off the occasional hill. A bit of background - I completed the Munros in 2005 - took me about 10 years - and all whilst living in SE England (racked up a fair few miles in the car!). Sin...

Re: Stob an Aonaich Mhoir from Loch Rannoch

As others have mentioned, it's a lot quicker to cycle in to this hill - a few weeks back it took me a shade under 3 hours car to car! Views down Loch Ericht were stunning. I then drove a few miles further on and did Beinn Pharlagain, again using the bike as far as the bridge. I even managed to get b...
