Re: Grey has my Inner Goddess doing cartwheels...

This report had me spellbound, not least because I want to reach the two western Greys from Glen Nevis, better half having an irrational fear of what the pot holey road from the south could do to his car suspension. I say 'his' when it's 'ours' because when it comes to pot holey roads he reacts lik...

Grey has my Inner Goddess doing cartwheels...

I scowl with frustration at myself in the mirror. Darn my hair - I must not sleep with my Bobble Hat on! I must not sleep with my Bobble Hat on! Reciting this mantra several times, I do my best to perfect my coiffure in the Glen Nevis Youth Hostel bathroom mirror, in breathless anticipation of my bi...

Knoydart Day 2: Sgurr C. Choinnichean (or was it a carwash?)

I'm rather belatedly getting round to writing up a couple of Walk Reports from earlier this year. This was Day 2 of a Bearsden Choirboys' outing to Knoydart. Malcolm and myself still had all three Knoydart Munros to do, and back in January we'd hatched a plan to book into the Knoydart Foundation Bun...

Knoydart Day 1: a dreich day rescued by a cloud inversion!

Another Bearsden Choirboys' outing, this, but just two of us this time: Malcolm and myself were keen to have a look at the challenging Knoydart Munros, but Tom and Donald had done them before, so it was just the two of us. We'd booked the ferry tickets and accommodation (in the Knoydart Foundation B...

It was quite a weekend! In all honesty the b Minor Mass was just as intimidating as An Teallach, albeit in a slightly different way :? ... But I seem to have survived both, by and large :D !

With Pam & Gary as they Compleat on An Teallach!

A truly historic occasion :D ! After recently polishing off the Aonach Eagach ridge, my pals Pam & Gary were planning to clock up Munros No. 281 and 282, no less, and they had invited a group of us along to help celebrate their Compleation on Saturday 18th May :D ! I had a major logistical issue...

Thanks - yes, just four days earlier!
You definitely got the better photos, though :clap: !

Re: Savouring Fisherfield part 2, Eastern three munros

Snap! I did these three hills just four days earlier, as I think you'd noticed - we didn't get such good weather (or photos) however :roll: ! It's interesting to see all the possible variations on these hills - we included the Corbett Beinn a' Chlaidheimh (and Beinn Tarsuinn's NW ridge including the...

Re: Winter-in-May: Two wild nights in the Fishy Forest!

Some stunning shots in there in between the cloud! Funny, when I was there in January there was no snow at all 8) Wasn’t your head cold on the summit without the bobble hat? :lol: Thanks! I did actually have said hat with me (and was wearing it on Mullach CMacF which was definitely the chilliest mo...

Winter-in-May: Two wild nights in the Fishy Forest!

This was an Awfully Big Adventure from my point of view: an invite from my fellow Bearsden Choirboy Tom to join him and a couple of fit & experienced friends on a backpacking trip round what was initially planned to be the Fisherfield Six. Now, I may have clocked up a surprising number of Munros...

Re: Summer-in April: Aonach Beag & Mor from Glen Nevis

It's a great route. Superb views and a lot of ascent plus an invisible cairn :lol: What more can you ask from a mountain walk? The descent to the col with Carn Mor Dearg can be tricky, especially in wet/winter conditions. We had to give it up and return over Aonach Beag, but to our excuse, it was s...

Re: Summer-in April: Aonach Beag & Mor from Glen Nevis

Great report, bringing back memories of walking these hills a couple of years ago. I remember stopping frequently on the steep pull up Sgurr a' Bhuic to gorge on blueberries. Unlike you, in spite of a lot of searching (and excellent conditions) I didn't find the route down the western spur and ende...

Summer-in-April: Aonach Beag & Mor from Glen Nevis

I had Good Friday off work and had been planning a walk for a while, but I'd initially just envisaged some Corbetts or something, since it was still fairly early in the year. But with an unanticipated heatwave forecast :shock: , I opted for something a bit more ambitious and decided to have a look a...

Re: A round of Loch Errochty to bag a foxy wee Graham

Nice report thanks, always nice to note another walk I can do not too far from the A9 to break my journey :D Thanks! Yes, this one is ideally placed for easy access from the A9, as you say. Actually, it is interesting that for somewhere that really isn't far from one of the nation's trunk roads, Tr...
