Blair Atholl to Auchlean

Putting aside the first night (camping up the Bealach before Carn nan Gabhar while Mountain Forecast noted 100+ kph winds going on the tops was... fun) all the trip went smoothly and I can wholly recommend this route (assuming they've fixed the landslide that took down the path leading to the bothy ...

Aye- I wasn't sure at first due to all the history of 'em in the area but it did seem quite fresh!

Landslip 1.5km south of Ruigh Aiteachain up Glen Feshie

Just had a great night out finishing a walk from Blair Atholl over to Achlean and ended up running into this beauty around 8 pm IMG_20231017_202935.jpg Fairly straightforward to cross (it was a scree slope higher up, but the brush there is quite thick) but I was wondering if anyone knows whether thi...

Loch Garten to Aviemore

Quite a wee walk this one, but I thought it worth including here (and someone did mention they'd be happy seeing the non-hilly walks too, so! :D.) I promised my partner some quality snow time, since she'd never seen fluffy white snow in her life (despite being Finnish :? ) and so we'd set off to Avi...

Re: Knoydart and the Absent Minded Geriatric Walkhighlanders

Phenomenal photographs of the tops and the horizon with that sun glissading across it! Screw those ticks though- climate change is bringing us more and I for one do not welcome our new arachnid overlords.

Re: Beinn Narnain, Ìme, and Vane- three days of pain.

Excellent photos, what camera do you have? There's great spots up the cobbler and Narnain for photos, it never disappoints. I used a D5300 initially, but most of my photos now are taken on my D780 (which has been my partner on all the reports I've posted here) Never been up The Cobbler! It's on my ...

Beinn Narnain, Ìme, and Vane- three days of pain.

Another fine forecast presented itself, this time for the Lomonds, and I'd yet to have ventured there for any sort of trip- it was go time. I whipped out the OS App and plotted a course that would take in three munros, and budgeted three days (one to get the train to Arrochar/Tarbet and get up the f...

Re: Beinn Eighe from Achnashellach

What a great report, thoroughly enjoyed both the narrative and the fantastic photographs Thanks! :D (though I suck at writing- never was my strong point. Academic writing I can do, but not so much this sort!) Great route and great photos in a fantastic area. If you dont mind me asking, what sort of...

North Loch Aineort to... Liniclate? (via Beinn Mhòr)

Nearing the end of my monthlong trip in the Hebrides (three nights on Coll, seven on Tiree waiting for a ferry, two on Barra, and the rest on South Uist with a daytrip to North Uist) I decided that it just wouldn't have been complete without taking on Beinn Mhòr- it was the highest gal around, after...

Beinn na Lap, Corrour Station, & Aurora Borealis

A weeks break ("Flexible Learning Week") presented itself to me mid-semester, and I'd seized on the opportunity and used this week for two trips. The first was a casual three days in Glen Affric- my summer tent proved less than ideal for this (yes- I froze. My sleeping mat even exploded on...

Beinn Eighe from Achnashellach

In deciding on this hike (as I often do) I used the OS Map to select somewhere with ideal photogenic topography- and Torridon fit the bill. Of the Torridon Three, I ended up selecting Beinn Eighe- Liathach seemed a bit too daunting for the still-inexperienced me, and the forecast for Alligin was (so...

Meandering around South Uist: Loch Aineort to Lochboisdale

Seems to be a rather unpopular route for visitors to South Uist (frankly I can see why- there's nothing resembling a path for most of the route, and every local chap I met reminded me about the obscene incidence of Lyme from the ticks that graced those hills) but nonetheless, a hill is a hill and I ...

Loch Awe - Dalmally Horseshoe

First time hiking the highlands, and also my first post here! ^.^ Sorry for my vivid/unrealistic colour rendition... I've been told it's a bit hard to look at, but it's as close to how I see things :p Anyhow, on to the report. The weather was ripe, the line from Edinburgh to Glasgow via Falkirk High...
