Re: On a low battery - Sgurr Na Stri

Shame about your low battery but still managed to get some pretty good pics despite the Misty Isle living up to its name! If the weather's to be better I'll hopefully be heading back off down this walk in May after the drizzle stopped me from getting out my camera on top of Stri (...and then down at...

Re: Bruach na Frithe

Cheers foggieclimber. He has experience of the Gabbro after last year's walk from sligachan to na Stri with added diversion to beach at loch nan leachd so should be ok (that was the only walk that has truly tired him out!!)

Re: Bruach na Frithe

Hi. Good pics and great description - really putting me in mood for going back up in May. Do you think this one's ok for dogs - mine's a seasoned Munro-bagger (or should that be 'wagger'....ok,I admit that was poor) very sensible and too scared to stray too near an exposed edge (we've even been know...

Re: The Cobbler

Went up yesterday. Intended going up tourist route at back but quickly changed my mind once blasted by the gusts coming down the glen and went up front with little buffeting but was still very icy and crampons wouldn't have gone amiss. Wind subsided by about 11 so decided to head up Ben Narnain too,...

Re: The Cobbler

Good pics - had similar experience climbing up onto Aonach Eagach ridge with peaks of Glencoe poking up through the cloud. Beautiful. Planning to take dog up it again on Wednesday so thanks for the pics - was worried there might be too much snow, but looks like it gets he thumbs (paws) up.

Re: Beinn an Lochain

I agree about the height (it is only 20ft or so of a Munro I suppose), and I really enjoyed the almost ridge-like quality in many places. But I do re-iterate that much more care would need to be taken if wet underfoot, particularly on descent. And it's fairly relentless, unlike Ben Donich across the...

Beinn an Lochain

Walked up it on a beautiful day. No cloud and only a mild breeze which actually disappeared at summit. Very enjoyable walk which I'll definitely do again. Easy to come back down in dry conditions but would definitely need much more care in wetter conditions. PS no sheep on the hill so my dog was off...
