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...

A round of Loch Errochty to bag a foxy wee Graham

For various reasons (mostly the dreaded Flu, despite having been vaccinated, followed by the usual on-call nonsense :roll: ), I hadn't managed to get a walk done all January, and by mid-February I was getting a bit stir-crazy. The first free day I had was the Saturday 16th Feb, and given my recent f...

Shee may be the face I can't resist: two from Ardtalnaig

I'd had my eye on this nifty South Loch Tay Graham-plus-Corbett combo for quite some time, and given a slightly random February midweek Annual Leave day to use up what leave I had left before the end of the financial year, and a mwis.org.uk forecast that looked a lot better east than west, I thought...

Re: Fhidhleir or Creagach? Let's say "The Butterbridge Corbe

It isn't even named on OS maps, for pity's sake! And while "Stob Coire Creagach" is its official name according to the SMC, it seems to be popularly known as "Binnein an Fhidhleir" (The Wee Hill of the Fiddler) - although the Ordnance Survey reserve that name for its western Top...

Fhidhleir or Creagach? Let's say "The Butterbridge Corbett"

What is it with Corbetts, exactly :? ? Why do so many of them seem to suffer from identity issues of one sort of another? When it isn't a matter of three hills within shouting distance of each other insisting on all having exactly the same name (the THREE Carn Deargs of Glen Roy, no less :roll: !), ...

A ferry nice day out on Cruach nan Capull & Black Craig

As ever, I only had one day free this month to try to get a walk in, and it was Saturday 17th November ... The forecast wasn't bad for the time of year (although not as good as the Sunday 18th, for which wall-to-wall sunshine was promised but needless to say I had family commitments :roll: ). The we...

Re: Speckled Grey & Gloomy: two grand wee Corbetts in Glen O

Great timing. Was looking at doing this pair soon 👍 looks a nice walk 😊 Really lovely at this time of year, if you can catch a nice day weather-wise. Both of these Corbetts have interesting summit panoramas, with unfamiliar views of a lot of familiar hills (most of which I was fairly hopeless at id...

Speckled Grey & Gloomy: two grand wee Corbetts in Glen Orchy

A lovely walk last Saturday, before Storm Callum's dodgy support act arrived on the Sunday... Beinn Bhreac-Liath ("Speckled Grey Hill") and Beinn Udlaidh ("Gloomy Hill") from Glen Orchy. I feel that I've somewhat neglected Corbetts recently at the expense of Munros (my main summe...

Re: Due South: Beinn Udlaidh and Beinn Bhreac-liath

Nice WR as ever, BP :clap: . I just did these two hills yesterday on a lovely October day and thoroughly enjoyed them - that quartz dyke on Udlaidh is a really odd thing, well worth seeing close-up. Your WR captures the two hills very nicely.
Congrats to Lucy on Corbetts Number 61 and 62!

Re: Around and finally up The Easains

Nice WR :clap: - that's a good photo of the recent landslip on the Maol Cian Dearg path; I remember that all too well from when I did these two back in July this year :? !
