Mullach an Rathain - the direct route

Having done Spidean a C'L previously when the boy was 10ish - we headed back up having sadly missed the chance to enjoy a glorious Saturday in the hills due to other commitments in Edinburgh. That said, leaving on a Saturday at 4.30pm turned out pretty well, we were pitching the tent in the Torridon...

Wet wet and wetter part 2

So, having done Mullach Clach a Blair the day before, we aimed to do the shortest walk that we could noting the weather was still mince. Headed over from Aviemore (where the 5 we have left there are all big days) and parked at Fersit. Last time here we walked the two on the east side of Loch Treig, ...

wet wet wet part1

So, had a couple of days off and the boy's exams are done so the prelims/study/exam walking ban had been lifted. Weather forecast for this day had been good earlier in the week so planned to do this one and then onto Monadh Mor and Beinn Bhrotain. First thing to say, the paths are all either rebuilt...

how far can you cycle past Bynack More towards Loch Etchacan

Thanks again any bike and hike fans Have been at Derry Lodge many many times and was thinking about an alternate route in to Mheadoin and the others in there. Realistically (I am not Danny MacAskill) how far can you get on the track that leaves Glenmore Lodge, turns right and goes below Bynack More ...

Can you bike up Glen Feshie east side from Achlean ?

I see that the old bridge on the west side is still down, am looking to bike up to the track that heads up to Mullach Clach a Blair, dump the bike(s) and head up. Weather permitting head over to Monadh Mor and Beinn Bhrotain and back same way. Have MTB and we've done a few bike and hikes (none this ...

Re: Magnificent Five in the sun

Photos now up, my son has read a couple of walks that you have posted up inc Ben Allder which is in our sights this year, what about the Fannichs in a day ? Thanks for the feedback, some of my reports are super short, really just additional tips because there are so many excellent reports up there. ...

A Ghlas Beinn without the Falls

After a shocking night in the tent at Moyles camp site in Glenelg (thanks to bringing the second dog) we were hardly up for anything and def not trying to get Fhada done with this one, the drop of 600m back to the fork in the path was a complete non starter despite the easy walk in. Weather started ...

Magnificent Five in the sun

What a wonderful day, the great weather continues and there seem to be fewer clegs in this area than other walks we've done i the last month or so. Move_2018_07_18_10_00_28_Trekking.gpx Parked at Lundie as per the normal start point for Carn Gluasaid. As per other reports, if you do the full five, y...

tick infested, long trousers and tick removers needed

Am putting this report up because of the headline. This is a great wee mountain but very tough if you look at the ascent and the horizontal, also 260m more vertical than the height of the Munro itself. We had been walking this whole week - Loch Lochy, Cluanie, Kintail - 9th Munro in four days but th...

More like two ronnies than four corries

Not an epic story with lots of photos but a caption to sum up a stonking day in the blistering heat in the Grey Corries. A few pointers - if you're doing Stob Ban then you have a choice of a rounder trip with not so much out and back. Or, you can bike into the Bothy and 80% of the ride out is freewh...

Clegs abound !

Not many mentions for 2018 so far so here's an up to date summary at start of July, we did this Sunday 1st July. 1) Not sure why the bike stand is where it is, it could easily be another 1.5km or so further on with limited damage if any to the landrover track. The first section after the gate is sha...

The mighty four conquered by 2 blokes and 2 dogs

Weather window continues to hold and, looking at car parks/verges on way to our chosen hills, lots of people out enjoying the bank holiday weekend and weather. Sadly the drive up Loch Lomond was a shocker at 30mph most of the way due to folks getting out of town ........ With an evening dinner and s...

Re: Best route up but not for dogs ! What a moon ...

Nice one, David. You certainly picked a very fine day for your walk. I did these at the end of November, and chose a rather obtuse route that involved hacking through forestry... :roll: . Your route certainly looks better, and the scrambling will have livened things up, no doubt :D . Good set of in...

Best route up but not for dogs ! What a moon ...

Well, had made a failed attempt at this ridge in October, with the family. Likely just as well as my wife and daughter would not have enjoyed all the little ups and downs etc. Weather window favourable and glad did not leave it a day later as unlikely we would have got such a great day. Plenty of wa...
