Glen shiel snow level

Day off tomorrow and want to beat the rush! Really don’t want to be dealing with much snow and had thought of am Bathach. Anyone been up that way in the last few days, how low is the snow line?

Geal Charn and Creag Pitridh

Last in the parking bay again! What a summer for that, but this one was really surprisingly busy given lockdown. We knew we wouldn't have time for all three Munros and left our choice open until we had walked in and understood the route better. Set out with lovely views west across the river by the ...

Buaichille Etive Beag

Excited for our first trip to Glencoe! Travelled down on Saturday morning - intending to visit the lost valley, only to be met by steady rain and low cloud. We took a quick walk to the signal rock, drove down Glen Etive and got our bearings for parking next day. Then over to Kinlochleven where we to...

Re: Gleouraich and Spidean Mialach

Crackin picture Orosay. Did you manage to get above the clouds? I was on Ben Macdui today and to the west it looked like only Ben Nevis and Aonach Beag were poking out of the clouds. Got a Brocken Spectre myself today but not very clear. Some great fogbows on Macdui and Cairngorm though. Cheers :D ...

Re: Gleouraich and Spidean Mialach

Well, went clockwise in the end and quite glad really, fantastic views when we needed an excuse for a wee rest and saw one of these for the first time 19840731-1038-48CB-A963-FD6F1EEC657E.jpeg which was exciting. The descent down the boggy path was not so nice and would have been more tedious on the...

Affric

Glen Affric is lovely and the big mountains above it to the north looked great from Toll Creagan last year, so I had always fancied going back. It was a lovely day. $matches[2] Had a nice walk along the loch for about 4or5 km $matches[2] . The big hills in Kintail came into view off to the left $mat...

Re: deer flies - keds

[quote="grumpy old bagger"]Anybody know much about keds?

Well something bit me at Mam Sodhail yesterday and I am 99% sure it was one of these, even drew blood, although I didn’t feel it at all! Keeping an eye on it and will report back if my arm falls off!

Re: Weather apps

Thanks folks, bbc does seem a wee bit more accurate and it’s only rain I am looking at! Hadn’t seen mountain forecasts.com before and it looks quite good, certainly fairly accurate for today. Planning Fannichs tomorrow and it looks promising, but it hardly ever rains there anyway!! :lol:

Weather apps

I normally use Met office for forecasts but started to notice that it isn’t very accurate around chances of rain and the BBC weather seems more accurate. Pretty sure it used to be the other way round. I do use MWIS but it’s a bit “Broad” - I would like to know if it’s going to be better in assynt th...

Re: Seventy (!!) parking fines issued at Loch Lomond

Considerate parking shouldn’t be hard. It just involves a bit of planning and possibly luck to avoid disrupting others. I'm not so sure. I was in Torridon on Saturday and there were plenty of people parking in passing places. Whilst they shouldn't be doing this the infrastructure along the NC500 sh...

Beinn Eighe, best day!

After Alligin last week we were getting confident around the bigger stuff. With a great forecast we decided to go for Beinn Eighe. We left early and arrived around 8am, but still couldn’t get into the car park, where there lots of camper vans. Parked on the verge facing back east and headed up Coire...

Deer Keds

I have seen these strange “flat” flies before, more like winged mites than flies. On Quinag yesterday we were plagued by them and I have just found out what they are! No sign of any bites and I am curious to know whether anyone has much experience of being bitten or are they more of an unpleasant nu...
