Lucy the Labrador's first Munro

My parents are avid walkers but they haven't done a Munro before and we decided today to put their usual Saturday walk with my avid bagging. Our dog Lucy also hadn't done a Munro before but it was of course going to be no problem for her :) I had Schiehallion in mind as it would be easy and close en...

More Fun at Feshie

I was on a camping weekend with my friend Jennifer and we woke up in the woods at Feshiebridge on the Frank Bruce Sculpture Trail in Glen Feshie. We had done Sgor Gaoith the day before and were ready for another. $matches[2] Good start to the morning Without a two hour drive from Glasgow we made the...

First solo outing since lockdown

I decided it was time for my first solo outing since the 5 mile restrictions had been lifted. I had read Wild by Cheryl Strayed during lockdown, a memoir from a woman who hiked the Pacific Coast Trail in the US by herself so I was feeling very inspired. I wasn’t hiking over a thousand miles across t...

Friday evening sunshine over Glen Feshie and the Cairngorms

Myself and my friend Jennifer’s schedules aligned for three free days together so it was time for our first camp of the year! I had just spent the past couple of days with family in Arran so it was going to be a treat of a week. I’ve only been wild camping a couple of times so wasn’t sure on where t...

More and More Steepness!

I was heading out with my brother and he picked Ben More and Stob Binnein. I was reluctant as I was aware the Walk Highlands description said the ascent as 'unrelenting', but I embraced the challenge. As we were approaching it in the car I saw it towering ahead and found it daunting that I was expec...

Re: Ben Vorlich from Ardlui - those damn 'Little' Hills!

Looks like some good camping spots from that side. Another hill I've yet to get a decent view from. I've never had the pleasure of clambering up the little hills but always wondered where the name came from considering they are 800m high. Also well done on going completely the wrong way in perfect ...

Ben Chonzie via Glen Turret

Having only done a few Munros before I had Ben Chonzie on my mind has I had read it was an easy one. I had also heard it was a 'boring' one but still wanted to do it. My walking buddy Jennifer had found an alternative route that goes by Glen Turret which is longer but is supposedly more interesting ...

Thank you! Yes my brother pointed it out - I'm usually a bit clueless over what's what :)

I tend to only go when the weather's good but it'll be all systems go no matter the weather when I can get out again!

Re: My first solo Munro with a beautiful journey there

Had the same experience first time I did Vane. Missed the path and basically spent the day scrambling up wet grass. Was literally on my hands and knees just before the summit, where I crawled onto the actual path right in front of a group of bemused walkers. A bike would be amazing for the downhill...
