Re: Views in every direction from hill we'd put off doing

Should have said thanks to steverabone for his report which was helpful - especially his coordinates for locating the path again on the way back! :thumbup: Well you definitely had a better day than I did when I climbed this hill. A good report and nice to see the views I should have had! As the exa...

Monadh Mor and Mullach Clach a'Bhlair from Glen Feshie

Monadh Mor.gpx Monadh Mor is another Munro that I've tried to climb before but haven't succeeded. On both occasions I've started from Linn of Dee and ran out of time to complete the walk. The first time was when I climbed Beinn Bhrotain and had intended to carry on to Monadh Mor but in the end felt...

Angels Peak2.gpx I climbed Sgor an Lochain Uaine (also known as The Angel's Peak) in September 2018 from Auchlean in Glen Feshie. The return walk is16 miles long and has a total of about 1375 metres ascent and descent. Sgor an Lochain Uaine is a summit that has a bit of a history as far as I am con...

Re: Devils Point, Cairn Toul and Angel's Peak from Linn of D

An excellent report of a demanding walk. I'm going to be attempting to get to the Angel's Peak again in June. The first time I was there I'd approached from the Aviemore side and I hadn't realised it had been promoted to being a Munro and took the by pass route along its edge returning from Cairn To...

Meall Glas from Glen Dochart

Meall Ghlas.gpx I had intended to climb Meall Glas together with Sgiath Chuil in September 2017 but the River Lochay was in spate after heavy rain so, as crossing the river would have been dangerous, I had to content myself with just Sgiath Chuil. In May 2018 I returned to attempt Meall Glas but de...

Beinn Heasgarnaich from Glen Lochay

Beinn Heasagarnich.gpx Beinn Heasgarnaich seems to have a bad reputation because of the bogs that surround it on several sides so I wasn't exactly looking forward to climbing it. However, my fears weren't realised and I enjoyed the climb in lovely weather. On a wet day it might have been different!...

Creag Mhor from Glen Lochay

A weekend away in September 2017 found me walking in Glen Lochay near Killin. After a night at the Bridge of Lochay Hotel I drove up the narrow road to the car park near Kenknock. The plan was to climb both Creag Mhor and Beinn Sheasgarnaich. However, things didn't work out as planned as I found the...

Sgiath Chuil on a very wet day from Glen Lochay

For the second walk of my weekend in Scotland in September 2017 I had intended to climb the pair of hills Sgiath Chuil and Meall Glas from Glen Lochay. However, there had been quite a lot of recent heavy rain and the forecast was for more. This would make the river crossing at Lubchurran difficult i...

Geal Charn from Garva Bridge

Geal Charn.gpx NOTE: For some reason I forgot to turn on my GPS at the start of the walk so the start point (boot symbol) appears where the GPS logged on to the satellites. I did this walk on the day after General Election in June 2017. Time to escape from politics for a few hours!I drove from Fort...

Beinn Fhionnlaidh at last

Beinn Fh.gpx I had previously attempted to climb Beinn Fhionnlaidh in 2015 but high winds on the higher slopes meant that I abandoned the final climb. I returned in June 2017 to try a second time and was rewarded with excellent conditions. http://www.steverabone.com/MunroWalker/IMG_8151.jpg The wal...

Re: Derry Cairngorm in a thunderstorm

Cairngorm creeper wrote:Some nice pictures of the storm over the hills. It sounds a scary experience glad you were ok. A shame about Beinn Mheadhoin, he approach to it from the north and past Loch Avon is very spectacular if you don't want to go the same way again


That is an excellent idea and will look into it.

Re: Ben Avon on foot the whole way

All that way and never reached the summit :? Of course it all depends on mean by climbing a hill!! Anyway my main concern is always is it likely that I may have an accident and for the sake of ten or fifteen feet in altitude I really don't think it's always worth it. When you're on your own I feel ...

Re: Beinn a Bhuird and farewell to the eastern Munros

A superb report and one that will inspire me to go back to climb Beinn a' Bhuird. I climbed Ben Avon a couple of days after you. As I was walking the whole way from Keiloch I hadn't time to climb BaB as well. Anyway it's a good excuse to visit this superb area again.

Re: Two from Inverey: sauna and blisters

Excellent report. I climbed Carn Bhac a few days after you did. I'm particularly pleased to see the track of your route off Beinn lutharn Mhor down to Altanour Lodge ruin - it will be useful when I have a go at BLM myself.
