Re: Recommendations for beginners

Can you actually call cabs to come and pick you up out there, far away from everything? Yes, with some qualifications. Obviously your route needs to cross or be near roads sufficiently often. Depending on how close to civilisation you are, a taxi may take some time to arrive and may be quite expens...

Re: Ruadh-stac Beag direttissima: don't try it at home!

Enjoyed that! I have a feeling I did something similar the first time I was up there - maybe went up a bit further right and followed a deer track across left above the worst of the scree. The second time I stuck to the standard route! There are a couple of good looking scrambles up the slabs on the...

Re: Taking a child up Ben Nevis in the autumn. Consideration

There are hundreds of probably more sensible, and enjoyable, alternatives within half an hour journey, not just smaller but more interesting summits, but waterfalls, coasts, forests etc. The Pap of Glencoe would make a fine alternative, for example, and its still high and shapely enough to feel lik...

Re: An Indian summer in Torridon.

A little less summery further up the glen on Sunday the following day. Yes, quite a contrast between the two ends of the glen yesterday. The cloud was breaking up about half way along both Liathach and Beinn Eighe. I didn't know there was a bridge (of sorts!) there - must be fairly close to the W e...

Re: An Indian summer in Torridon.

Re: Lost

Both guys were just on Breakfast on BBC for those interested (I assume will be shown again or on catchup). Sounds like day 2 was a navigation disaster. Thanks for the pointer - just watched that.
