Re: Solo hikers ?

Look to the positives, to the best-of-both-worlds. Hike IN with a group, kill them all, loot their corpses, solo-hike out. That way you'll have had everything needed for an enjoyable day out in the countryside: company, solitude, homicide. You should team up with Caberfeidh, he with the bone saw an...

Re: Solo hikers ?

It cuts down the risk factor. I disagree. I find that teaming up with others increases the stupidity factor, we end up deferring to the least informed, least experienced and the most lacking in knowledge or experience, and thus end up having a hard time of it. I would rather go at my own pace, I kn...

Re: CMD difficulty?

I would suggest you try to ensure good conditions, there's little point and not much fun if the visibility is low and/or it's blowing hard. My only ascent was in winter conditions from the CIC hut, good firm snowpack, a perfect clear day and no wind. I found it straightforward and the exposure fairl...

Without troubling my diminishing faculties I'm going to guess they are foods, split to savoury and sweet. :lol:

Re: Solo hikers ?

My tolerance for idiots is at an all-time low, so I prefer to go solo. It saves getting blood stains on my nice oilskins and sou'wester. Perhaps you should change the title of this post to "Gregarious Hikers". :shock: Me too! I can get into enough arguments with myself without having some...

Re: Where's the picture ? - Scotland (part 3)

Probably wrong, but the steep sided hill to the left looks like Sgiath Chuil, so you could be on the Tarmachan ridge,

Correct! At last. Not the usual route I admit and getting up the headwall to Mullach nan Coirean was an exercise in route finding and I don't recommend it. :lol:

The second Munro is, of course Stob Ban.

Re: Where's the picture ? - Scotland (part 3)

I thought this would go much quicker, they are both popular hills.
Here's a pic looking back from the approach to the summit of the second Munro.

Oops posted this before seeing your pictorial clue. I'm obviously wrong!

Re: Where's the picture ? - Scotland (part 3)

No takers? This will probably make it too easy. Looking back at the first Munro of the day.

Re: Gleouraich and Spidean Mialach

Either way you have to walk along the road a piece and when I did them in 2018 there was a sizeable herd of highland coos on the road. Fortunately they had moved on by the time I had to walk along it, though they seemed docile enough, if a bit unwilling to give way to a car. :lol:

I'm on my way to two Munros, neither of which is visible, one to the right and one to the left.

Re: More birds help please

Agree it does have the look of a Dunnock about it. How it was moving might confirm it.

In my defence, both Inchgalbraith and I Vow have ruined castles, I was just saving time. :D

Where am I?

Bit of a guess, but could be a juvenile Garden Warbler.
