Racing against the weather in the Arrochar alps.

Another week where my free time doesn't coincide with decent weather. Tuesday was stunning and Wednesday was scheduled to be dry in the morning, so I thought I'd get up(relatively) early and take advantage of the dried out ground before it got wet again at 2pm. It was a public transport job, so I op...

Sair legs, feet dipping and an Osprey

My Danish friend Marie is climbing Ben Nevis with me in 2 weeks - and despite trying for months this is the first time that work and hangover schedules have allowed us to go a climb. I know that she's pretty fit, she's a viking and we're doing i by public transport from Glasgow, so Ben Vane is nice ...

Re: Stick to the Path on 2 Beinns

It was great practice - I just had to remind myself that I wasn't in any danger and I had to "use the force" - but certainly a squeaky bum moment…

Stick to the Path on 2 Beinns

My first solo munro bagging trip; I decided to take the train up to bridge of orchy and tackle Beinn Dorain: http://i57.tinypic.com/2rwrpg8.png Beinn Dorain has filled me with awe on many a road trip. First as a child on family holidays visiting my grandparents, and then on numerous road trips with ...

Golden Eagles on Caisteal Abhail

Day 2 of my mini walking holiday in Arran took me to Caisteal Abhail at North Sannox. Of the peak-baggable hills in Arran that I've not done - Cir Mhor is the scariest, and Beinn Bharrain at Pirnmill puts my parents out a bit too much. The walk starts less than 10 miles north of Brodick and it's acc...

Snakes on a Beinn

I'm from Ayrshire and ever since I was 2 months old, the family had a 2 week holiday in Arran in the firth of Clyde. My attendance on these holidays petered out when I hit my teens, but my parents still try and go every year. I usually take advantage of the spare room in their holiday house and go a...

Foggy Foggy Ben Donich

Another weekend quickie. We planned for a walking party of three but lost a number to sundayitis. The sundayitis was predicted early on Saturday evening, so we could plan accordingly. The weather predictions were pretty keech so we had to opt for something reasonably straightforward and close enough...

Lovely solo walk up Earl's Seat

It's been a few weeks since I did any walking at all. This was due to ropey back, work, travel and weather. By this point in the year I thought I would have been strutting around munros during long summer days - sadly any decent weather we've had hasn't coincided with my freetime. With this in mind,...
