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...

Re: With Pam & Gary as they Compleat on An Teallach!

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...

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: !), ...
