An Teallach Traverse on video

I've heard great things over the years about An Teallach, and it certainly didn't disappoint. Great views, despite some cloud, dramatic drops, and an awesome ridge scramble. A perfect mountain day, with great company. Other people are far better than me at extended prose about their mountain trips! ...

I use a kodak playsport. They are cheap (kodak has gone bust) but I think you can still get them. Some bits were with my iphone, but when the weather gets bad, the kodak can get soaked, as it is totally waterproof.

A 5 hour white out on Aonach Mor!

After the stunning day, light winds, and all day sunshine of Stob Ban 3 weeks ago, my nephew jumped at the chance to bag his first Munro. Tom came up on the train from London on Friday, and the forecast was looking good. http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8510/8568926071_ab2e2c874a_b.jpg Untitled by 6274...

Re: If this is 30% I'll take it every time, or sun on Stob B

Excellent pictures there. Do you use a DSLR for both video and pictures? I use 3 cameras. A £70 kodak playsport for some of the video, and the underwater stuff, as it's completely waterproof. It hangs off my rucksack strap, so its easy to grab for a quick shot. But the stills it takes are naff. The...

If this is 30% I'll take it every time, or sun on Stob Ban!

After a week full of stunning weather, I was looking forward to a Saturday in the hills. However by Friday night we were down to 30% cloud free, and the need to drive at lease up to Fort William to get it. But our (I was not on my own for the first time) hearts sank, during the 3 hour drive from Kil...

Re: printing the maps?

I find it best to screenshot the views i want, then print out the screenshots.
cmd shift 4 on a mac, no idea on a PC.
Helps if you have a big monitor.

Re: The North Face Point Five Jacket

I've had a north face observatory jacket for a year now. Which I guess isn't as tough being gore tex paclite, but I honestly can't fault it. It's kept me warm and dry in all conditions, and breathes pretty well.

I'd say you can't go wrong with a point 5.

Re: Good Outdoor Camera

I use a kodak playsport. I think you can still get them for about £70. It does HD video and is completely waterproof, I use it for some nice underwater shots. I have it in a little pocket on my rucksack strap, and it's never had an issue with the cold. However it's 5mp stills are not great. But I am...

A perfect day on Beinn a'Bheithir - Video

With a fantastic forecast, the weather didn't let me down on a near perfect day on Beinn a Bheithir. Easy walking through the forest at the start, until the first real test was a steep snow bank up to the belach. From there it was a wonderful day of stunning views, great ridges, and a few friendly f...
