Re: The Rough Bounds Conundrum

'MTB'd in from Poulary through the now felled forest to Glen Kingie' I did this a few years ago to climb Sgurr an Fhuarain and it's a great cycle but dry conditions would be best. In and out in the same day was about 7 hours for me. It's always fun to seek out different approaches to get to wild are...

Re: the C word

Having just returned from the Creag Meagaidh car park and a path walk with young children in fresh air, observing social distancing I've had a total rethink following the Lochaber Mountain Rescue advice. The car park was at peak summer levels for visitors and it seems time to rethink our individual ...

Re: Rum Bunkhouse

Making contact can be a issue winter but having been there late last year I turned up and only five in the bunkhouse so plenty of room. It's a wonderful bunkhouse and the limited contact I had with the part time staff was extremely positive.

Re: Isle of Rum Sandy Corrie

Thanks Rockhopper but it wasn't Sandy Corrie the way they came down.

Still and interesting link though.

Isle of Rum Sandy Corrie

I've just arrived back from two glorious days on the Isle of Rum and chilly overnight stay at Dibidil bothy, which was magic. This time of year the island was deserted with only 4 overnight visitors on the island and one being the lovely school teacher. So I tried to climb Ainshval from the bothy an...

It might only be a baseball cap but having been with me on over 200 hill trips its my dear friend. Lost on the summit of Geal Charn north west of Laggan just over a week ago. :( :( Its a light fawn in colour and I'd be more than happy to pay for it to be posted and a reward sent as I'm sure you all ...

Re: Geal Charn and Creag Pitridh from Kinloch Laggan

What a great report :clap: :clap: and interesting as I much prefer this approach to these hills. You might have noticed that at Lochan na h-Earba the tree line strangely starts some distance up the hillside. Apparently this is because there was due to be a huge dam constructed at the east end of the...

Re: Cape Wrath Trail for novices

:clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

Great report and it proved very useful for my Cape Wrath trail adventure this September/October. I wasn't sure about leaving my boots and going for trail shoes but after reading your report two pairs of trail shoes sound like the solution.

Nice one

Re: Knoydart hills

Yeh, it's a terrible place for jostling; you can hardly move when there's more than one person per twenty square kilometres... Caberfeidh, clearly you have never been there during summer term holidays, peace and isolation? forget it. With around 25 people at the top of Meall Buidhe was the busiest ...

Re: Knoydart hills

I climbed Meall Buidhe from Glen Dessarry in the same day and one of the best walks I've done. There are so many different options for the Knoydart hills if you think out of the box.

Tip: avoid the English school holidays as Knoydart is swamped with people.
