For info, the second link takes you to the geograph page for NN5593 square kilometre and you can see all the photos relating to that square. You can use the map section at the...

Re: Any good wildcamping spots near Laggan

I've been out that way a couple of times for the munro and the corbetts but can't recall anything specific. There was a bothy out by Melgarve but that's quite a bit to the west of the reservoir. Maybe have a look at some photos via the link below - there may be some suitable spots beside the canal b...

Re: Mulling things over...

Congratulations on the second corbett round :clap: :clap: When I (hopefully eventually) get to that point (for the first and only time) I suspect I'll hold off for "non typical" compleation weather :wink: Thanks :)

Re: I climbed An Teallach by accident....

Great report - enjoyed reading it :thumbup: Really must make an effort to go to the pie shop next time I'm up - it's next door to a shop run by one of my wife's cousins. Thanks :)

Correct :clap: I was coming down from Fuar Tholl - the river was very deep after the loch making for a very difficult crossing on the ascent which I wanted to miss on the way down so detoured round the top of the loch. Over to you :)

Re: Sleep mat recommendations

Rockhopper - I looked at the Thermarest ones and can get a Prolite for £90 (L) £70 (R), not sure if that's a good buy or not? The large size gives an extra few cms of width over other ones I've looked at. I'm thinking that could probably make a difference. 690gms for the large (196cm) though, was h...

Re: Isle of Rum Sandy Corrie

Has anyone gone up from Harris or down as it looks more inviting to me and could tie in with an overnight camp on the lovely beach.. Last year I met a group of walkers on Trollabhal.

Re: Sleep mat recommendations

For when it's warm, I use a Multimat superlite inflatable mat which only weighs about 330gr. However, insulation is almost non existent as it's only plastic and air. For when it's cooler/cold, I use a Thermarest NeoAir XTherm . Although it's inflatable, I find it provides a high level of insulation....
