Liathach - out of the grey and into the blue

$matches[2] For the last three years we have visited Torridon with Liathach Top on the to-do list. Apart from 2018, when we tackled Beinn Alligin, our second Munro, the weather has not been good enough to justify ascending the mighty Liathach. The big hill with big views needs a good day. Whilst on...

Re: Big BEM - Late to the Buachaille

Great picture of the raven, it's probably the same one that pestered us until we fed it when we were there in 2019.

Re: Baosbheinn and Beinn an Eoin

It looks like you had a good day.

Unfortunately the bothy is permanently closed.

Have you completed Beinn Dearg and Beinn Damh in Torridon; they are both great hills.

regards

Re: Sgurr Coire Choinnichean via Ladhar Bheinn

Tamura-san

I like the idea of walking over a big Munro to get to a Corbett, maybe we should name these routes after you.

Have you tried Beinn Dearg Mhor via An Teallach or Ruadh-stac Beag via Spidean Coire nan Clach?

I enjoyed your report and photos, much appreciated.

Beinn Dearg - Amongst giants

$matches[2] After the long day yesterday on Maol Chean-dearg and Beinn Damh we had a lay in and over breakfast considered whether this should be the day we tackled Liathach; given that you could see nothing else out of the back window of the hostel and we had put it off the previous three years it ...

Re: If Columbus can get lost so can i

I would love to have walked down the Gruinard river; the hills on the North side, when viewed from the road look more like Vietnam than Scotland. Still it gives me another reason to go back.

If Columbus can get lost so can i

It's a well known fact that Columbus was lost when he discovered the American Continent. Mind you he was thousands of miles from home and didn't have a map - we weren't and we had an excellent map based upon jeffers 25/9/16 walk report. We did, however, have an excellent walk. our_route.gpx The plan...

Loch Kernsary from Poolewe

We took the walk anticlockwise from the car park alongside the river hoping to see views of the river and loch Maree. We should have packed a chainsaw as this section in densely wooded. The walk is pleasant along good roads until you get to Kernasary, the area around there is nice with good views to...

Maol Chean Dearg & Beinn Damh

$matches[2] Yesterday the Balach na Ba was enveloped in low cloud so the intended target for the day, Beinn Bhan, was put on hold. So we took a leisurely drive through Applecross, stopping at Sand for Ben to do some bouldering on a large outcrop which has at one time been occupied by prehistoric ma...
