Re: Circuits of Munros?

Cracking train trip to Corrour Station regardless of which direction you come from, 3 munros and a nice Corbett in the immediate vicinity and have the option of the station restaurant for a swift half :D

5 munros at bridge of orchy you can combine with the tents as well

Re: West Highland Way - 3 Days

I mountain biked it in 2 days this year (tyndrum half way stop) which was agony on the erchie and have walked it twice over 6 days....feet took a battering walking. If you are doing it in 3 days, wear trainers where you can... It is really enjoyable however long you do it in (apart from second half ...

Re: Multiple Munros In one go

Knee braces are worth buying, they dont cost the world and give additional support. Poles a definite if you are struggling. Lighten the load in your rucksack as well. Also would recommend really good stretching before starting and youtube has some great videos for this. You will get used to it thoug...

Re: Beinn Tulaichean diversion at start

Yeah it's still there. Did Stob Binnean and Ben More from the South on Tuesday, back down to the glen between Stob Binnean and Beinn Tulaichean and picked up the landrover track. I've done Tulaichean and Cruach Ardrain from the bealach between the two and cut out the steep start....okay not as great...

Re: Bridge of Orchy munros

Hiya, was up last Wednesday 20th up Achaladair...got the the bealach and turned back...was pretty deep snow, almost whiteout conditions and was risky going on. Will be a lot of snow I am guessing and presumably a lot of over hanging snow as well looking at the walk reports on normal conditions. That...

Set off around 6:30am for the drive north up the a9 with my girlfriend and got to the start point shortly after 8:15am, kitted and booted and ready to go by 8:30am with the clouds covering the tops of the hills bu...

Re: West Highland Way in campervan

I would have to say it's pretty unrealistic to do unless as a previous post says someone drives the van to each stop every day for you. Much better fun leaving the van and not having to step foot inside anything with wheels for a week...makes you realise how lucky we are to live in such a stunning c...

Re: WHW preparation

As above it depends if you are camping or using a baggage transfer. If camping strip it down to the very lightest of gear, you'll be thankful for every KG you can get out the bag!! Break in your boots big time, walk everywhere you can in them, shops etc... When the big day comes, MAKE SURE YOU COMPE...

Re: The Drumochter 4

Pretty sure myself and my girlfriend passed you guys sitting at the bealach on the last munro, we were heading up just as the skiers were coming down to the bottom of the slope. Was a great walk in almost perfect conditions!

Re: Tents for WHW need advice

My advice would be look for a really good tent, shop online and try and find it for the cheapest price possible....then there is a certain "outdoors" website which is pretty popular who will price match + 10%.....I managed to get a semi geodesic tent which RRP's at £270, for £90.....result...

Re: cairngorms advice

Thanks for all the info! Helped out big time. There will be a few of us though, so wouldn't like to get to the bothy and there's no room. Especially being in the summer and probably at the weekend, there may be a few folks about. Besides, need to give my tent a good wind bashing :D
