Drumelzier, just Drumelzier

Hum'ed and haw'ed over whether to do Dollar Law, Broughton Heights or this and in the end settled on Drumelzier after all. I had previously been up Pykestone. I decided to travel the reverse of the Walkhighlands suggested traverse of Pykestone, Middle and Drumelzier but only go as far as Drumelzier ...

Bishop - the steep way and longer way back

The route map $matches[2] After Ben Lawers with T and the sore limbs aftermath, I decided that my regular jaunts up Bishop were not quite as preparing me as well as I hoped for future munro expeditions with him so I decided to take the steep route up Bishop. I had done this a few times in the past b...

Return to Lawers

Well the first time was back in December 1991 with the Geography Dept. so here I am almost 29 years later doing it again. Went with T this time in a socially distanced fashion. Car park very busy despite it being a Monday. Thought the hill would be really busy too but in the end it was not too bad. ...

Traprain Law

Still on strike, L agreed to go for a quick walk up Traprain in the dying light. Because of gigs, this turned out to be my last hill before lockdown.

The Bishop, the witch and the well (not quite in that order)

L decided to go go gliding so accompanied him. Set off from the club and this time decided to actually look at the spring in Scotlandwell that gives it its name. $matches[2] There's a grate over the spring itself. It's actually quite interesting and the way the water bubbles up out of the rock is sl...

Totherin Hill - a little bit of Tinto

L unable to glide due to weather in E so he agreed to come up a hill with me instead. Headed over to W since weather much better. Chose Tinto since it was within an hour's drive. Weather great when we got there. Lots of other people had same idea. $matches[2] L's boots hurting him again when he walk...

Blairdenon - not quite the way I intended

For my first solo post-lockdown walk I decided to go for Blairdenon, the last of the Ochils Donalds I had still to do. I hum'ed and haw'ed about which particular route to take. None of the reports sounded appealing to me, either too long or too much route improvisation. In the end I decided to do a ...

A tale of two migraines

Met up with T for the first time since lockdown. We'd both been desperate to get up a hill. Me though not being as fit as him chose something I hoped I could cope with. Also T had never been to the Ochils so it seemed sensible. Been up Ben Cleuch a few times but had never come back down over Ben Eve...

Little Conval

First post lockdown walk up a hill. L and E even came along. $matches[2] The path along the side of the road was much better than I thought it would be. Little traffic and a lovely sunny day. there was a short section about 50m where you actually had to walk on the road itself. After you start up th...

Dowlaw to Cove

L and I joined Angus from Geowalks on Day 3 of his Firth of Forth geowalk from St Abbs to St Andrews for charity https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/geowalks . This covered the stretch from Dowlaw to Cove. A windy day but a good one. This being a geology walk much of it was spent much nearer the ...

Benvane - not in vain (rain) !

T and I had been trying to organise another hill walk but weather and circumstances kept getting in the way. We finally fixed on this date but the weather as ever was the deciding factor on what to go up and where if at all. After much examination of the met office site finally figured that the afte...

Ben Rinnes 3rd time lucky?

No L or E this time. Weather forecast said dry but low cloud so went for it. A chance to walk off Christmas dinner. Set off at about 10:50am. There were 14 cars on the side of the road and in the car park. The top kept peaking out of the low cloud. $matches[2] $matches[2] $matches[2] Made it to Roy'...

Bishop in the mist

our_route.gpx Took L up to his gliding. Weather forecast suggested he might get up in the morning. Unfortunately once we got there, Bishop and Benarty were both covered in low cloud. After some scrutiny of weather sites he decided there would be no flying today and surprisingly suggested he come up...
