Sing a song of sixpence

From our previous experience doing the WHW, 4 days should be enough, considering blisters and all. Planning for this walk had started 6 months earlier to ensure suitable accommodation was available at each stop, in particular the section between Killin and Aberfeldy but also Pitlochry was filling up...

Wildlife on 2 - a.k.a The long walk out

First, as I won’t be writing a report on our climb of Ben Klibreck a few days earlier, I would like to give a :clap: to the guy who was returning to his car at 10am having completed this mountain then driving on to climb Ben Hope the same day. Very impressed. Second, my appreciation to Malky_c :thum...

Re: Walking the walk! A day by day account and advice!

Well done both, and many thanks for the advice at the end of your report Teddie. Got this route organised for next month and had originally planned on wearing shoes of the same brand I recently had a wet experience with while wearing their boots climbing through the long grass of Cauldcleuch and on ...

Re: 6 Donalds - Ettrick Horseshoe XL version

Thanks for making my route planning easier gmr82. Having a week in the borders early August and planned on the horseshoe but wanted to add Crofthead and Loch Fell while there. Was looking at a more direct line from Capel Fell to Crofthead but now I see your route, that's the way I'll go. Minus Bodes...

Kenavara variation

Our first day on Tiree. Although a sunny but cool day, I’m wearing a jacket with hood up to prevent the thin area getting more damage from the sun after 3 days on Coll. Starting from the recommended parking area, we proceed across the track through the field with Loch Barrapol on our right and a rea...

Calgary Point

This has got to be one of the best walks ever; vying for top spot with ‘Ringing Stone and Dun Mor Broch’ on Tiree. We planned a leisurely stroll for this route with nothing else pencilled in for that day during a short mid-week break which could and should have been much longer. Coll and Tiree have ...

Broch and ringing stone

On this lovely island, we start the route from Vaul where there is plenty room to park your car or chain your bike to some rusting farm equipment with a nice view along Vaul Bay. In addition, this gives you the chance to walk off your lunch on the final leg of the route if you have planned for the E...

Caolas extended

Equipped with cameras, bins, scoobies and plenty of liquid, we started this walk from Caolas where there is some parking available. Down to the beach with views across the Sound to Gunna and Tiree and walking north with a stealthy approach, we catch the tide and time at the right moment to spot a co...

Sorisdale including Eagles Rock

Thoroughly enjoyed this walk with our own detour at the start. From the turning area, there is a farm track heading off on the right for the initial ascent to the top of Eagles Rock. After a few hundred metres where the farm track takes a sharp right turn, you can continue a direct line to the top o...

Lismore to the point

Walkhighlands have come up trumps again with another good walk. We had planned to do more of the island but our time was shortened by a couple of days due to bad weather which cancelled the ferries. The day we did this route was excellent weather with 25°c and not a breath of wind. We started this r...

#16 - 19; just!

Having booked one week’s holiday in Moidart as step 1, the next step was visit the excellent walkhighlands to determine what hills and walks could be added to the itinerary. The Ring of Steall had a nice ring to it, if you pardon the pun. Reading the reports from other climbers, I wanted to try it t...

Creag Leacach single

Creag Leacach was planned for the previous December in tandem with Glas Maol but a 40mph wind and very low visibility curtailed our route to just Glas Maol so Creag Leacach was on the agenda for our first day in Glenshee during December 2012. PC170722.JPG The weather was reasonable with cloud foreca...
