Re: Two Porcine Gatekeepers

That was a rather interesting route for these hills....and a very apt title to boot. Can remember adding the Sow of Atholl on at the end when I went round the four munros but didn't consider the Boar as I was starting from the layby NE of the Sow and then cycling up to Balsporran. Will keep your ro...

Two Porcine Gatekeepers

our_route.gpx Scientific name: Sus drumochteri. :lol: It was a Sunday in the middle of the stalking season and the weather sounded decent, so I wanted to go somewhere. Looking for a sign that boasted 'no stalking on Sundays' - because if good weather fell on any other day, the place wouldn't be acc...

Re: Buidhe Bheinn, from Glenshiel rather than Kinloch Hourn

In all honesty, it might seem less obvious, and certainly isn't straightforward, but I'd say the N approach to Buidhe Bheinn could be the best one. The W top is still a superb viewpoint (except when immersed in clag), but it can be reached from the main summit easily, and I found the descent from it...

Re: The Bhuird/Avon Side Road Corbetts

It's walks like this that the Cairngorms were designed for - there is something magical about their spaciousness that works brilliantly with a long trip - in good weather :lol: :lol: After walking over the flank of Culardoch in heavy diagonal rain I'm due a return trip, so thanks for the temptation...

Re: The Bhuird/Avon Side Road Corbetts

A fine report on an unusual meandering route through this part of the world. Isn't it just brilliant when the forecasters play ball??? Presumably you ran/jogged much of it, to average a speed of close to 4 kph??? Thanks! I didn't see any mention of a similar approach to this group of hills, so I wa...

The Bhuird/Avon Side Road Corbetts

our_route.gpx After only having one free day over the past three weeks (and thus promptly using it to do nothing all day), I was just itching to go somewhere. With low clouds forecast for the W/NW areas, it appeared the Cairngorms were the place to be that weekend. Recalling a walk I had planned bu...

Let Loners Be Loners

our_route.gpx It might feel a little inappropriate to name the report this way when this was a walk I didn't do alone, Graham coming with me. The name is meant to describe the hills, though. Sgurr a' Mhaoraich flat-out says "does not combine easily with its neighbours", Buidhe Bheinn only...

Cyclic Tetramealline Structures

our_route.gpx Step 1: draw a feasible route connecting several hills I have yet to bag. Step 2: realise all the hills are called Meall... I just had to incorporate that into the title somehow! :D Initially, I wanted to make it work around the word four-Meall-dable, but since the walk itself wasn't ...

Re: 3 munros from Spittal of Glenshee

Yeah, once you've made it to Carn an Righ, it seems a shame not to include Beinn Iutharn Mhor given how close it is... and how it'll be a long trek to Spittal of Glenshee regardless! :D

Re: Skye-grilled

Enjoyed the report. 23 years ago we stayed at a cottage on the Loch shore near Luib; it was my son Ben's first holiday. Everyday i looked up at Glas Bheinn Mhor thinking i'd do it the next day. The weather turned rank so never got to go. However Ben and i walked Garb Bheinn and Marsco in 2019 and h...

Skye-grilled

our_route.gpx Or perhaps Skye-roasted. Neither word is recognised by dictionaries, and I guess the choice depends on whether Skye came closer to grilling me about my scrambling ability or roasting me for it. :think: :lol: Anyway. How long do you suppose one can listen to odes about Skye before popp...
