If this is Oireabhal, does that make me Keith Harris?

Yes, Harris's smallest and (probably) easiest Graham is indeed pronounced something like "Orville" ... which I suppose does make me Keith Harris, then :lol: . After a great but knackering walk a couple of days earlier on the An Cliseam horseshoe, I was keen to get a second walk in before h...

An Cliseam - a tale of two Mullas

Grim though it's undoubtedly been, the ongoing issues with the Virus-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named did at least have a Silver Lining for me in hillwalking terms, in that I got to enjoy three very different domestic holidays this summer in previously unfamiliar bits of Scotland, and I was lucky enough to get...

Dun da Gaoithe - chasing the Iona ferry!

This was Day 2 of a short hillwalking side-trip as part of a family self-catering holiday in Iona; I'd negotiated permission to absent myself for a couple of days' hillwalking. I got the very early "school ferry" at 06:10 a.m. on the Monday morning, along with a group of rather dazed-looki...

Re: Cotswold Outdoor walk report of the month winners

You were all out and busy enjoying some of that warm sunshine we had in July, with over 270 new public walk reports posted on Walkhighlands. The winner - and a well deserved £100 Cotswold Outdoor voucher - goes to 2manyYorkies who had a sleepless multi-day camping trip - A Cairngorm blast . The £50...

More like the thing! Via Beinn Fhada & the A' Chioch Ridge

Like many people, we had taken the Domestic Holiday option this summer for obvious reasons (I loathe that "staycation" word :roll: !), and we ended up with a Grand Hebridean Adventure, joining separate groups of friends for a week in Iona at the beginning of June, followed by a week in Har...

Re: The Ben! Carn Mor Dearg!! The CMD Arete!!!

Really enjoyable read Kenny - well done on ticking off another bucket list route. :clap: That slog up CMD from that direction looks a bit of a nightmare :shock: We did CMD a couple of weeks back via the North Face car park and once past a boggy section beyond the forest, it was a really good contou...

The Ben! Carn Mor Dearg!! The CMD Arete!!!

Apologies for all the exclamation marks there, but this was real bucket-list stuff for me, and I did find it extremely exhilarating, particularly after the year that we've all just had :? :D ! I've probably hitherto been a bit of an anomaly (not a new experience for me :lol: ), in that I'd climbed o...

Celebrating the big re-opening with an Appin Hat Trick

This is a walk that I'd pondered as a theoretical possibility several times over the past few years while idly perusing OS Landranger Sheet 50 (yes, okay, I'm a complete maps anorak; there is probably better reading material for the toilet :lol: ) but which I doubt that I'd ever actually have attemp...

Re: Creran cracker: blistering end to the most bizarre week

Interesting WR with some lovely photos :clap: ! I've just done a similar trip myself (thankfully just before the good weather broke, the weekend before last), but including the S2K Marilyn Beinn Mheadhonach as well as the Munro and Corbett, so as to be able to justify two whole days away from weedin...

Gulvain: Clean boots on the Dirty Hill, in autumn sunshine

I'm cheering myself up, in what has been a nervous week for the world :? , by tidying up a couple of Walk Reports that I'd never gotten round to posting at the end of last year ... and it has worked, I'd have to say. My photos have reminded me what a lovely walk this was, and after all, the hills wi...

Gie's anither swatch o' yer Fannaichs! The Middle Three.

Plan A had been an ambitious holiday in Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island ... needless to say that was quickly kiboshed given the events of 2020 :roll: , and we rather hurriedly made alternative holiday arrangements for a few days at the seaside in Scarborough, followed by a week at a cottage in ...

Thanks, yes, definitely one to remember (and mostly for the right reasons :lol: )!
It's a very special landscape, this - all the wee lochs are what really stick in my memory :) . Definitely worth the tough walk in and back out.

Gie's a swatch o' yer Fannaichs! Sgurr Mor, et cetera

...With apologies to the Chewin' the Fat team (and possibly everyone else) for the WR title. Like almost everyone else in Scotland this year, I've found myself with my original summer holiday plans kiboshed :( . One unexpected silver lining of this, however, was that we instead found ourselves in a ...

Pushing the limits of the day-trippable: Chaorainn & Bhreac

Apologies for something of a Blast from the Past - I'm only now getting round to doing some WRs from a couple of months ago. I'd taken an annual-leave Thursday in early August for a bit of walking, but I had some family commitments on the Wednesday evening and the Friday, so it had to be a day trip ...

Ciste Dooby Dubh, where are you? Soaked again in Glen Shiel

Well, I suppose this outing was the price to be paid for having enjoyed glorious sunshine the previous day on Sgurr a' Mhaoraich :lol: ... I'd taken an Annual Leave day on a Friday and booked a hotel room for the Friday night so that I could get two consecutive days' walking in. I lucked out with th...
