Re: Leaving gear behind while summiting

Depending on the area you were planning to leave your stuff, you could probably find somewhere out of sight where it would be safe enough. As long as you remember where you left it!

Re: Falls of Glomach from Glen Elchaig - start point query

Thanks all. We walked to the falls from Camas-luinie today and they were indeed very impressive. No problems at all with the burn crossings, but plenty of water coming over the falls. As Paul says, the path along the south bank before it joins the Killilan track is quite wet at times, but it was qui...

Falls of Glomach from Glen Elchaig - start point query

The WH route to the Falls of Glomach via Glen Elchaig starts at the car park near Killilan school, on the north bank of the river. However, there appears to be a car park further up the glen at Camas-luinie which would shave off a good few miles of approach track (it's on the other side of the river...

Re: Cows and calves on route, no dogs

That's a shame, I hope you found some other nice things to do on Sanday.

When we visited a few years ago (without a dog), these cows were the most nervous cows I've ever come across - stampeding all over the place while we escaped over a barbed wire fence.

Well done on winning the prize for the most terrifying walk report of the year :shock:

Re: West Highland Way in Fabulous Weather

Well done Sgurr, and what wonderful weather you had! It was fascinating reading about all your fellow walkers - probably the most entertaining WHW write-up I've read. Thank you.

Re: Beinn a'Chlachair, Geal Charn, Creag Pitridh - route opt

Your right we really did enjoy this route, there is something very satisfying about being able to traverse a hill if you have the time! I think the west ridge might make a boring way up but it made for an easy descent with good views to keep you entertained! Where as the east ridge was steep enough...

Re: Trenchant comment on the Ukraine situation from a walker

No worries. So was mine. Graffiti and vandalism in the countryside, along with littering, does seem to be a growing problem which needs to be tackled.

Yes it was all very disturbing and somewhat disconcerting.


You're right, that is indeed very disturbing and somewhat disconcerting to wish that on anyone.

Re: Aoineadh Mor hair raising clifftop walk

There's a suggestion here that this is possible: https://kinleyhazel.wordpress.com/2017/12/30/brolass-and-malcolms-point-20th-december-2017/ I'd say the gully just east of Carsaig Arches would be ok but with a little bit of scrambling at the top. I guess you could also ascend a couple of miles west...

Re: Beinn a'Chlachair, Geal Charn, Creag Pitridh - route opt

Thanks all. If I did do the full "traverse" for Beinn a' Chlachair, then my instinct would definitely be to go clockwise rather than anticlockwise. More of a path for the way up, and also doing the slightly scrambly part in ascent rather than descent. I'm not really interested in bagging a...

Re: Aoineadh Mor hair raising clifftop walk

Fantastic! I wonder... do you think the slope / cliffs above Carsaig Arches (directly below where you turned back) are scalable (as a walker, not a climber)? I quite fancy the idea of going out along the the coastline and back along the clifftops.

Re: Beinn a'Chlachair, Geal Charn, Creag Pitridh - route opt

Thanks @jmarkb. I take your point about the WSW ridge. It seems to me like a better way of exploring the whole hill as a full traverse rather than just one side of it, and I thought it might be quite scenic, facing a different direction to the ascent. You're right though, it does add extra mileage -...

Beinn a'Chlachair, Geal Charn, Creag Pitridh - route options

I've been looking at options for these three Munros in the Ardverikie / Loch Laggan area combining all three via the WH route (which is here: https://www.walkhighlands.co.uk/fortwilliam/beinn-a-chlachair.shtml ) doesn't really appeal. I was thinking about splitting them into two day walks as follows...
