Stob Dubh, the Wee Buachaille - More than a Munro.

Well, as one might gather, I do have a liking for the Wee Buachaille. My first trip was a nice winter walk - https://www.walkhighlands.co.uk/Forum/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=38532 but, this one was to be more memorable for other reasons. Planning for this latest ascent however, goes back a lot further ...

Garbh Bheinn dash.

A quiet Sunday looming and decent forecast had me looking at a local hike. Eventually opted for something a bit bigger and further from home, which I had thought on a few times, to add to my list of Corbett's. Garbh Bheinn, Kinlochleven. Garbh Bheinn 002_1021_768.JPG Everything pretty much as per ro...

The Big Bike Hike Day 2- Beinn Dearg Trio. Knee bother!

Lovely, calm morning waking up in Lochcarron. The knock on the door through the night never materialised, but the Kindle had come in handy :lol: (private joke). Had light breakfast, settled up and hit the road around 8, aiming to revisit Inverlael, to do the Beinn Dearg trio. (Eididh nan Clach Geala...

The Big Bike Hike Day 1-Murky Lurgy and 'Cheesecake.'

So the clock was ticking away, as was my tiny, wee brain. Opportunity for a couple of days away looked on, but what hills to do? Don't ask why, but I think weather nudged me to look at several long trips, which could all be made that bit easier by use of a bike, to a greater or, lesser degree. First...

Re: Torrid Times Day 2 - Liathach, the Beastie!

well done you. I did the Liathach ridge twice, in my youth! Before I learnt to be feart. I'd love to do it again but I don't think Rudolph is so keen! Thanks, Mrs Claus. I wish I had been into this lark in my younger days. I definitely had a better head for heights then. I'm sure you can talk Rudol...

Re: Torrid Times Day 3 - What's the Sgurr?!

Cheers, PeteR, I can believe that would be an arduous day in winter, for sure. Wouldn't like that descent in snow, or ice, or the walk in\out, for that matter!

Torrid Times Day 3 - What's the Sgurr?!

It had been a torrid night the night before, having survived Liathach and the post match celebrations. The lads had determined to hit the road home, but I was keen to squeeze another walk out the trip, seeing as I was in the vicinity and wanted to knock off the Sgurr's up Glenuaig, if possible. The ...

Torrid Times Day 2 - Liathach, the Beastie!

And, so it came to day 2 - Liathach. The Beast of Torridon, some say :shock: It was a torrid night the day before, but if I thought a few birra's from Bob and drams of Lawrence's Highland Park were gonna ease my anxieties, I was about to be proved wrong! The lads were all up bright and early, thanks...

Torrid Times Day 1 - An Ruadh-stac/MCD, but where's Big Jaf?

Torridon times. Yes torrid times, indeed. Only just now able to recount events :) I think this bright idea goes back to sometime in Coronavirus lockdown, about May, or so? Things beginning to look more hopeful for a wee trip so I canvassed the usual suspects, who were up for taking a gamble to book ...

Re: Affric Graft Day 2- Eige, BF & Sodhail energy.

A big walk in such windy conditions. Aye, between wind, sun, bogs and my poor wee legs it proved a tough day :lol: Thank you, Petr. That must have been an awful day for you. Worries on different fronts. Fortunately, I have never been too unwell on a day out, apart from a wee hangover, or touch of t...

Affric Graft Day 2- Eige, BF & Sodhail energy.

Hadn't slept well in the hostel the night after Toll Creagach and Tom A'Choinich, perhaps still mulling over which hills to go for? Last night I'd finally opted for the Mullardoch one's as wind was forecast lowest there. It was only after rising that I realised I hadn't route notes or, maps for thes...

Re: Tom takes its Toll. Glen Affric pair.

Shame you missed the views of these two. Good introduction to the Affric Hills I thought when I did them. I can sympathise with you about some hills feeling like they are harder effort than expected. Some days I can waltz a route and then others it feels like I've lead boots on and I'm having to dr...

Tom takes its Toll. Glen Affric pair.

Had now managed a few Munro's since Covid lockdown relaxed. Summer, as so often the case, was being nothing like summer. We had summer in spring, during lockdown. We might not have predicted Coronavirus, but any Scot could have predicted that :lol: Anyway, forecast looked like chance of couple of de...

Re: Kilmartin-Furnace Wildcamp via 3 Marilyns

Nice one!

P.S. You were right about Beinn Talaidh. Pretty sure these will be Arrochar Alps you were seeing.
