Re: 2020

Well we managed 7 Munros. But on the plus side I have walked a lot from my own front door and discovered some lovely spots I haven't been to before. It was great watching the seasons turning in my local woods and moors. Avoided my local hill Roseberry Topping which is always busy despite the whole e...

Re: Malky and the mystery of the Pink Map

I'm entirely with you on the pink map/orange map discussion.
Such lovely photos, and what a bind to be still suffering - take care!

Re: Bheinn Bhuidhe walk and cycle, beautiful

BB is very underrated imo, it’s many years now since I was last there ( in my purist years ) so I walked, took me 8:00 hrs all in. Loved the wee bad step that much I returned the same way. we were so pleased to have a clear day for it. I have noticed that we have got a little slower in recent years...

Bheinn Bhuidhe walk and cycle, beautiful

All you purists who don't approve of cycling to the foot of a Munro are basically wrong about this one! And anyway we had a boat to catch. This hill is ideally set for a "bike and hike" as there is a good tarmac road for several km up Glen Fyne. We were on our way to Islay to see Granny fo...

Re: Munros.. Which order?

NickyRannoch wrote:I have made a bùrach of it and have pretty much only multi-days, far north west and 12 hours was left.

Keep some 6-7 hours central highlands in the back pocket

We're similar, just have "keep for great weather" trips left. Which we never get.

Re: Maoile Lunndaidh - day 3

gammy leg walker wrote:Still on my to do list, looks like you found a half decent way onto the summit, by all accounts the standard WH route is not the easiest way

Well it was boggy and tussocky but reasonably direct. It helps if you can see where you are going.
Sad that you had to postpone your walk. Take care x

Re: 3 Yorkshire peak training, experiences

Probably a sin to say so, but I found Whernside thoroughly boring! The other two, however, are both splendid in their different ways. Combined both several times on various loops. Forget Whernside and design yourself a walk over and around the other two... my favourite bit was the walk back from th...

The main thing with the Yorkshire 3 is the distance I think.

Re: Walking trousers

They are maybe a bit outside your price range but I love my Paramo Velez trousers, you don't need waterproof trousers with them and they are comfy. And I really really don't like waterproof trousers. Not the height of fashion but very good.
