Re: Creag Loch nan Dearcag (Strathconon) w Kids - easily fro

Hiya, Nice report, we seem to be walking, looking at the same hills at the moment! Do you think at the second gate there was any room for a spaniel to squeeze through. He is really rubbish at climbing them :D :D Thanks Thanks. Aye, it seems so :) The gates are padlocked and there are chains on them...

Re: Crùban Beag from A9 / Falls of Truim (Newtonmore) with K

Great pics - especially of the newts. Wondering if, in your view, it would be possible to go from Cruban Beag across to Cruban Mor and Am Binnein without having to lose too much height due to the forestry? I think it would.
