Re: Small van for camping

Please feel free to delete from this forum if not appropriate. I was wondering does anybody have experience or advice on using a small L1 van for camping/sleeping? I'm looking to buy something of this size as I'll need it for general day to day commuting as well as heading off to the Highlands bagg...

Re: Ring of Steall

Well I went round the Ring of Steall yesterday - what a day out :clap: My favourite day out of my 70 Munros so far. It was slightly more exposed than the Glen Shiel ridge but nothing difficult - thanks again for all the advice :D Can confirm that I now require new knees after the descent of Sgurr A’...

Re: Ring of Steall

Ring of Steall is a bit harder and more exposed, I would say, but not by a huge margin. Thats pretty much what im looking for, was always wanting that bit extra at Glen Shiel, Thanks for the quick reply! I agree with jmarkb. The Ring of Steall is also a far better day out, save it for a good day. I...

Ring of Steall

Hi there,

Quick question, how does the ring of steall compare to the South Glen Sheil ridge? In terms of exposure/scrambling?

Went round the glen sheil ridge this week and really enjoyed the small scrambly bits, but just wondering if the ring of steall will be easier/harder.

Thanks in advance :D

South Glen Shiel Ridge..

Anyone done the South Glen Shiel ridge solo? How did you tackle the road? Just walk it at the end? I have them planned for the next few weeks but really dont want to walk the road after 7 Munros :lol: Would it be possible to cycle the road at the start, then pick up bike at end? Any tips welcome :D

Busy Beinn A'Ghlo

So today was the day I was going to hit the half century, 11 months after beginning my journey.. I chose the Beinn A'Ghlo 3 as it was looking good weather wise and wanted a trip to get me up to the 5-0 :lol: I left the house at around 5.30am, hoping to get a nice early start at it - here are the vie...

Re: The Quickest and Ugliest Munro's..

The Cairnwell really is a sad mess, but I think these three are improved by taking a somewhat longer route from Baddoch: the N ridge of Carn Aosda is a good way up, out of sight of the ski area, and you can head N off Carn a' Gheoidh to return via the track along the Baddoch Burn (or even add in An...

Re: The Quickest and Ugliest Munro's..

I really enjoyed that video! Thanks. :clap: What did you use to record with? Which drone do you have? I am thinking about doing these three next Friday with my son (His first 1st-3rd and my 3rd-5th, done Mayar and Dreish already) as part of the itinerary of a night a way we have booked in Ballater....

Re: Duke of Edinburgh awards

The Duke of Edinburgh scheme is great, I completed it last year (just in time - aged 24) The expedition was 5 days training in the lakes, then a 4 day expedition over Scafell Pike and surrounding area. Great introduction to the mountains! Not sure as to why it was based in the lake district when we ...
