Beinn a'Ghlo - Mountain Rescue

HI Folks, I was up BaG on Saturday (magnificent day), as I got back to my car there was Police there and two Mountain Rescue ambulances, with members of the Mountain Rescue getting ready to set of on a rescue mission.

Re: "ABC" Watches

By far the best site about 'wearables' is DC Rainmaker. Word of warning, the reviews are in depth are require a bit of time to go through #nerd. I'm looking to buy a watch as well and currently swaying towards Garmin Instinct Solar. https://www.dcrainmaker.com/2020/07/garmin-instinct-solar-review-wh...

Each time I do it I remind myself take a bike next time..

Re: Ben Avon - route advice

Ben Avon - route advice

Hi Folks, I'm doing Ben Avon on Wednesday and if I have the energy Beinn a'Bhuird as well. As usual the most stressful bit seems the beginning of the walk with 1000 forks :lol: . According to the route description it's all well sign posted but according to some more recent reviews not so much. Any a...

Clachnaben

Was wondering if anyone knew, why the hill of Clachnaben is not on the map of Sub-2000s on walkhighlands?
Please let me know if that is intentional or not, I don't mind getting educated! :)

Re: Summer hiking shoes/boots

There are so many brands and models! I'm a bit of a gear geek so happy to help but maybe let us know a bit more about your needs?
