Beinn a'Chlachair: an Easterly Route Off

It seemed good to lodge a wee report as I used a descent off the mountain not mentioned in others' accounts or route descriptions (as far as I could find). I used the Walkhighlands route for my ascent, commencing at 0745 on a warm sunny morning. Not being a marathon walker, I had climbed the other t...

Loch Lochy Hills

Walking this pair of Munros was a real treat! :) I think the reason for this was partly to do with the pleasure (luxury?) of walking the entire day on well-defined mountain paths, or discernible tracks with minimal bog. I heartily recommend it. The route I adopted was the one outlined above by Walkh...

Re: Ben Ledi

Hi Colin Thanks for your very useful report. I wish I'd read it before embarking, last Thursday, 9.1.14, on the same walk. I was similarly and unexpectedly hampered by the large numbers of fallen trees on the direct route up from Coireacrombie car park. I too intended to avoid the same route down th...

Re: Lonely in the Cairngorms

Lovely photos, Pigeon. These hills are beautiful. I took the same walk yesterday (7.5.13). Luckily it was probably the finest day of the week, as it'll turn out. I should have heeded your warning about Allt Glas Mor though. Being fine and warm the snow is melting fast, and for me too the Allt was a ...

Re: Beinn a' Chuillach- between meals

Nice report and pics jester, thank you. You're right. It's difficult finding the right time and weather for a wander. I went up this one yesterday using the track on the OS map as far as the bealach at 680618. There is one point where the track seems to lose itself lower down, as you describe, but o...

Beinn Mhic Chasgaig from Glen Etive

No pictures I'm afraid, but a route map and some description. The day started with lowering clouds, though the forecast was for probably dry, even sunny later; and so it proved. The initially approach is through some beautiful terrain. After the plank bridge at 4 there is indeed (as described in the...

Pair of Mammut Gloves

Lost around 17:15, Sunday March 18th 2012, Drumardoch Farm entrance (parking for Stuc a Chroin, Callander); either there or the roadway back towards Bracklinn Falls and Callander. Much missed! Would gladly repay postage and packing for anyone finding and returning them.
