Thanks! Smoke aside, it is a lovely spot.

Logg Hill

This walk turned out to be a mistake and I really should have known better when I saw the smoke being pumped out from one of the nearby farms. However, when I got to the car park the way up looked clear so I set off for the top; only a short walk in any case. Got to the top and starting getting an a...

Re: Hydration while hiking

Since I had a stuck kidney stone and discovered that I am missing a kidney I tend to carry more water than strictly necessary, so 3l for a full day's walking and usually at least 2l as well as an extra litre that I drink before setting off. I also carry a lifestraw filter and a cup to go with it. Fo...

Re: Mun cuairt ann a Mhorbhairne .. Morvern winter wander

That looks/sounds an exhilarating walk. And an unusual view of Eigg and Skye.

Re: Limping in the winter wonderland

Happy new year! Well, let's hope so. A good vicarious walk and lovely photos of Fuar Tholl and the deer. I can emphasise a bit via past experiences over the sore knee but that sounds like it is going away.

Re: 2020

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=njZaIvSYAmw Had the usual low key start to the year but a nice snowy sunrise ascent of Mither tap stood out from the small hills up to March. Then I had a choice of retrieving stuff from the office or going for a walk and I chose the latter; what I considered at the t...

Your coldest day?

Wondering what folks' coldest hill days have been. I haven't done a lot of winter walking but three exceptionally cold days that stand out: Ben Mor Coigach: didn't feel the cold too much during the walk but at the start I was caught out with only having light trousers on one of the two coldest morni...

Carn Liath and Carn na Moine, by Glen Ey

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_uuC4IGbHuQ Probably my last hill walk of 2020. Didn't want a battle with the forecast morning wind so delayed my start a bit and chose a route that I hoped would provide a bit of shelter for the ascent and see me at the first summit in time for any wind to die down. ...

Re: Little Conval

Nice day for it!! I love the low sunlight photography at this time of year and you got some good shots. Looking back, it was 7 years ago I did Ben Rinnes then the two Convals, not the highest of hills but as always in Aberdeenshire great views from each one. I genuinely didn't think I would enjoy i...

the B** of Cullen

I was bothered and photo-bombed By a bee with attitude at altitude A bee with no attitude control And yet a bee with control of its attitude And, it has to be said, It had a certain beatitude So was it a micro-drone en-route to Lossie or a micro-angel en route to Pluscarden or just a bee enjoying it...

Little Conval

Managed to get round to doing a December walk at last, albeit a short one. A pleasant surprise though with good views of the surroundings. https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/pw/ACtC-3cB39lG0qBam1rFuEGeQ6oEJlBAVu2ObXbSMBF3Rjby5ZzagqNYALdJb5U_zEyv7Fkao0CKP5WMCq4syoooLMl94ryhrZMlSj9awaKaz5YJ9NOEBTaGLher...

Re: Tier-four-ly crossing the boundary on a sunny day

Some interesting sights. Good to at least have somewhere to wander other than city streets.
