Foal's Craig

Couldn't make up my mind about where to go so fell back on a long-standing plan to walk to Foal's Craig. My left knee was feeling a bit twingy too so I thought an easy walk might be the thing to do. https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/pw/ACtC-3cOSQK-rSajWYLltznzFVpTHVhWNQgFm0lb8y0yqiD8JGROW9EuXXutQRv4...

Re: Winter obedience class

"The first furnished a fleeting flurry of frosted flakes, in what could almost have been a symbolic snow-shower for the sightseer's sake." Quality aliteration (and punchline at the end!). A hill also I've pondered so good to see an account of it and that it has views to inspire a visit the...

Re: Lochnagar cornices

That looked like a brilliant day out. These clear days before the heat of summer give us some fantastic haze free views. For some reason I always seem to come down your ascent path - I've never actually climbed it before. Agreed. Spring was my new favourite time of year until 2020 came along but 20...

Re: Stob Dubh - an amzing view point high above Glen Etive

Good choice! I wonder what Glen Etive will be like at the end of the year.

Re: FREEDOM!!!

A good training ground you've got there, I am sure the legs will return to normal service in no time at all. I'm quite fascinated by ruined houses too, wondering who lived there and what their lives were like. Well, there are a lot of them in Aberdeenshire. I don't have any petrol left from Septembe...

gamboling den

Thought this visit to Den Wood was going to be a very short stretch of the legs on my wife's birthday, thinking we'd only make it as far as the boggy section. Turns out the paths have been improved so we were able to extend the walk. Improved access has also made it a busier place, though that is ba...

Carn Crom sunrise

I got the top of "Carn Crom" and saw that the time was only 5.30am. If I was an hour ahead of schedule then maybe I had forgotten to put the clock forward on my seldom-visited phone. Having verified that it was the correct time it dawned on me; try checking the map. And sure enough, I had ...

Cullykhan Bay to Downie Bay, kind of

Re: Hill of Tillymorgan

Didn't realise you were local to this area - folks bide in Pitmedden so I pop over here now and again. It's a lovely wee hill with great views, as your post testifies. I'm always impressed that Pitmedden has a football pitch with floodlights, not that I've actually seen the pitch; I just used to dr...

Pennan Farm from the B9031

Pennan farm always catches the eye and I must have actually walked through it a few years ago on a walk from Aberdour to Pennan but it obviously wasn't a memorable experience or maybe I was disappointed by comparing it with the equivalent walk along the clifftops which is quite spectacular. Anyway, ...

Hill of Tillymorgan

A quick visit to a small hill just down the road from us. Been there a couple of times before but missed the trig point. This time I turned off the main track up just before the end and found the easy path there that bypasses the old quarries. https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/pw/ACtC-3fkGXQsLKCkzun...

Crovie Head and Pennan Head

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JHS4DMBYf08 The first walk to Crovie Head and towards Crovie Law was a bit of a let down in that I had noticed on a previous walk a gate and track crossing the headland. However, turns out that the track ends at an effective dead-end. Undaunted, I scaled the disused s...

a good year for the roses

As well as being a lockdown anniversary, 23rd of March was roughly when the Banffshire sunset started to appear far enough north for its light to be reflected on a sizeable stretch of sea. I'd actually missed out on the sunset proper the day before so this time made sure I was at the upper Crovie ca...
