Schiehallion

Perfectly normal route up Schiehallion on a windy day, but the rain behaved and stayed out the way for the summit, and barely a sprinkle afterwards. The path is well laid out with cairns further up the hill, but we still managed to miss it twice on the way up, so I thought I'd flag that! On the summ...

Bynack More

We varied the starting point of this walk slightly from the attached route by parking at Loch Morlich near the Deer Centre. The paths (nay, trails) were very obvious and well constructed lower down, and with hindsight, we could have cycled as far as the bridge over the river Nethy to shorten the rou...

Lochnagar

Standard route to Lochnagar as a single Munro from Glen Muick car park. I was a little concerned in advance about how steep "The Ladder" might be. It turned out to be (as I'd read) a super piece of path engineering. Near the bottom, we lost sight of the path in the large slabby rocks. Howe...

Cairn Toul and Angel's Peak

Long route from Linn of Dee car park to Cairn Toul and Angel's Peak via Derry Lodge and Corrour.
This would be a super long day, however the route was shortened a little by cycling to Derry Lodge. Keen cyclists might be able to do sections beyond by bike, but we decided to park up there.

Carleatheran from Gargunnock

One doable with public transport, this, as there's a decent bus service from Stirling. This was my second attempt at this hill, via a new route, since my previous attempt from Touch Mollar via Cambusbarron was bogged off. The area around Touch Muir at NS720915 was very swampy on that occasion. From ...

Historical autumn stroll

My time yesterday on this walk was a little longer than given above as I started from Croy railway station. Haven't included that but it's about an extra 20 minutes start and end. The remains of the Antonine wall - or more to the point its ditch - are impressive in this area. Particularly the sectio...

Re: Glen Ogle and Corbett

Haha, thanks. :) I've used the username for eek, nearly 20 years now, in various guises.

I'd actually recommend Meall an t-Seallaidh possibly above Creag McR, but that's not as easy to combine with Glen Ogle.

Glen Ogle and Corbett

Lochearnhead by bus on a sunny Saturday. (BTW, not the date shown - date fail - was a few weeks back) Passed by the church on the roadway up towards the cycle path. The cycle path zig-zags up the hill passed more orchids than I've seen in a long time, including butterfly orchids. Reached the flat pa...

Ben Challum

Ben Challum is a hill that seems to have a reputation for being a little moist, so I thought that today might be the day for it, it having been dry recently. Bus to Crianlarich. Given I was walking along the roadside (the verge is fine, but watch the traffic around the Glasgow t-junction), I decided...

Cruach Ardrain Munro pair

Got the Citylink bus up to Crianlarich since the day was looking good, and followed a fairly standard route up Cruach Ardrain. The area has been undergoing felling and replanting, so any route through the woods should be taken with a pinch of salt unless it's fairly recent. I started up past the SYH...
