Corrour Munros, bike and hike

After 2 failed attempts to get to Corrour by train (due to issues with the trains) I decided to try doing the 3 Munro's at Corrour using my bike. I had a look at the ordnance survey map and discovered there was a path from Rannoch Station "The Road to the Isles" so I got the bike in the ba...

Glas Tulaichean, Carn an Righ, Beinn Iutharn Mhor

Wee jaunt to Spittal of Glenshee to do Glas Tulaichean & Carn an Righ, we done the cheat paid the £2.00 to park at the hotel and glad we did. The walk in would have been fine but I think I'd just moan all the way from the hotel to the actual start car park if we hadn't. Cracking day for walking,...

Geal Charn (Monadhliath)

A 3 hour drive to get to the start point for Geal Charn had us hoping for a good walk and some decent views, and it was to be Johnnys 100th Munro. This hill offered neither, it was a bog almost all the way this was made worse by the clouds appearing to be parked on the summit so we never got to see ...

Chno Dearg and Stob Coire Sgriodain

First trip out to do munros this month, we took the gamble despite weather reports suggesting rain, glad we did, we had some cloud cover for the start of the walk but as the day went on the cloud cleared to give us good clear skies and stunning views along Spean Glean. Not too much doing with wild l...

Aonach Eagach

Another amazing day in Glencoe, Aonach Eagach was the one walk we'd waited for so long to do because we had read too many story's and watched more than enough youtube videos about the dangers of doing it with snow and ice, so with the weather we've had lately it was a safe bet we could do the walk w...

Meall Chuaich

Due to the poor weather forecast we decided to head up to Drumochter to tick off the outstanding Munro in the area, Meall Chuaich. The walk in was pretty good as they go, good track all the way to the start of the hill but what made it really good was the amount of bird life we saw, Siskins, Grouse,...

Ben Nevis by the Carn Mor Dearg Arete

Another great day on the hills, we headed to the North Face car park to start our walk up Carn Mor Dearg, the path is pretty much at the car park and almost as soon as you leave the car park your climbing up the well laid out (and steep) path. The route yesterday has benefited out of the last couple...

Ring of Steal

We looked for a way to reach the 100 mark and Johnny reach his sixtieth on the same day, the Ring of Steal was the choice for such a momentous day. Jim McMenemy a Compleater offered to tag along and as a bonus even offered to drive. For us this was a result, it meant all 3 of us could take a hip fla...

Carn nan Gabhar

Another good day on the hills, we parked at the car park opposite Loch Moraig, (there's a trench between the tar and the actual parking area, (watch the front of your car).

Dreish and Mayar

Cracking walk to do Mayar and Dreish, the weather was near perfect, good sunlight, no wind and still some snow on the hills to add some atmosphere. We had our crampons and ice axes with us but they weren't required, the snow still lying was soft enough to walk on comfortably. We went anti clockwise ...
