Maol Chean-Dearg, and then there were 10

our_route.gpx The weather forecast for our final day in Glen Carron and Torridon was fairly good, although we were looking for a fairly early start and the skies were still quite overcast. We followed the normal WH route, up past the bothy (which looked like it had been in use recently) and took th...

Maoile Lunndaidh and Moruisg from Craig

$matches[2] Other than the long day from Attadale (which we were doing on fresh legs) this is the route that had been weighing on mind all week. I feared that the cumulative effect of five consecutive days walking might be starting to tell, and unlike the previous days were both munros we pretty mu...

Alone on Beinn Eighe

$matches[2] For day five we parked the van at the end point for an anti-clockwise round of Beinn Eighe and cycled to the start point. The start is not as steep as Liathach, although the section after Coire an Laoigh stiffens up, and the shale underfoot often makes purchase difficult, so walking pol...

Liathach, need I say more

$matches[2] We had initially planned to focus on finishing the munros around Monar before heading to Torridon, but the promise of good weather for Tuesday led us to change our itinerary and head for Liathach. We left our bikes near the end of the route, then drove the van to the start point just ea...

Two wet ones from Achnashellach

$matches[2] With boots feeling as though they weighed a ton as they were soaked with so much water, we set off from Achnashellach station following the WH route for an anti-clockwise route. The initial short but steep climb from Drochaid Coire Lair is followed by a long trek along the broad ridge t...

Oh what a circus - the two Sgorrs from Craig

$matches[2] After the exertion of day one we both slept in and woke to the pitter-patter of rain on the van roof. We took our time over breakfast, but the weather didn’t look like improving, so at about 11am we set off from the forestry car park at Craig, crossed the road and level crossing and cyc...

Cheescake and Mhor from Attadale

$matches[2] After a long drive up from north Wales we parked the van near the start point at the entrance to Attadale Gardens. As thia was to be the longest day in terms of distance covered during the week we had decided to do this first to avoid having to take it on with fatigue in the legs (espec...

Re: Carn Bhac and a lot of wasted effort

Respect for posting this. Would you say that your self-imposed deadline contributed to making planning and on-the-hill decisions which you would not have made otherwise, and are you going to modify it as a result? The self-imposed deadline has had an effect on our planning, but everything we planne...

Carn Bhac and a lot of wasted effort

$matches[2] Our rather ambitious plan was to do five munros from Inverey, riding in to Altanour Lodge on mountain bikes. We started the cycle in at about 7am and straight away realised the weather wasn't going to do us any favours, and we pressed on into a freezing wind and snow and by the time we ...

Re: Beinn Dearg group - beyond reason, almost beyond enduran

Wow. My legs hurt just reading that. Was thinking of trying the four Munros plus Corbett + Graham in the summer (then going for Suilven the next day), but if it’s going to be a 17 hour day erm maybe not...! :shock: ... Reading it brought back memories of aching legs on those hills - I foolishly tho...

Green welly envy on Mhanach (nothing to do with the shop)

$matches[2] Once again the necessity to agree a date for a visit to Scotland months in advance didn't look like it was going to work in our favour, with two successive storms and then more poor weather forecast for the time of our visit. Indeed the six hour drive up in driving rain didn't auger wel...

Flying up (and down) Fionn Bheinn

$matches[2] The weather forecast suggested our visit to Fionn Bheinn would very likely be accompanied by some precipitation, and rain on the van roof overnight supported that. This was our last hill of the weekend, after which we planned to drive as far south towards home as possible, so wanted to ...

Slioch, the gift that keeps on giving

$matches[2] Whilst the forecast for Saturday was quite good we knew there would be a fair bit of snow on high ground, and the suggested walk time on WH was 8-9 hours in summer conditions we thought we'd best make an early start. So after a night in the van in Kinlochewe we were well placed to get m...

Wyvis winter walk

$matches[2] After driving up on Thursday evening and sleeping in the van just outside Inverness we got to Garbat for a 10am start. The ground was still frozen solid when we set off, which was a good thing as we could crunch our way over any boggy areas. There was a single vehicle in the car park wh...
