Re: Cape Wrath trail alternative route?

For info, I find the geograph site useful when planning routes as many of the photos can give an idea of the terrain. Just type in a four figure OS grid ref in the top right search box to get started.

Re: Favourite walk of 2021? Why?

Depressingly low hill count over last year - inversions on Grahams in late December and a Suilven camp in August are close runners up to a Quinag summit camp in late August https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51532980966_697077bae2_c.jpg https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51532183132_b0084ec25b_c.j...

Re: Inverawe-some Weekender

Certainly was a good weekend compared to the current weather. These two are on the to-do list for some time in the future. Still debating the pros and cons of going from the west or east though - cheers :)

Re: Above Inverlael and a sea of clouds

Pity about the van but an inversion, brocken spectre and fog bow would perhaps soften the blow a bit - cheers :)

Re: Isle of Mull- More than just Ben More

Agreed - good to make more time to explore the area instead of smash 'n grab for the hills (something of which I know I'm guilty at times :roll: ) - cheers :)

Were you confident about getting above the cloud I wonder. Yes, fairly confident as I'd seen some photos over the previous day or so :) Here is the Brocken Spectre I was lucky enough to see: Well done - think I was just a wee bit too early as the sun wasn't quite high enough for me :) ..can't beat ...

Re: Crampons for Brasher Women's Country Master Boots

The risk of using crampons like this on softer boots is not so much that they don't fit, but that too much flexing of the joining bar can result in sudden failure.
