Nae path fae Mullach

Did this on Tuesday (19/09/2017) and followed the route as described in Walkhighlands. That is the third option "descend southwest down the Druim nam Bo ridge. Skirt round the north side of Lochan nam Bo before continuing southwest." I thought this would be a very scenic walk down "a ...

Ben Avon: Translated as pleasantly knackered.

This was only the third time I has been out on my own. The first time was Mayer & Driesh when I got slightly lost on the way back down. The second was up in the Linn of Dee and I started off at the wrong place. When I realised I decided to do Carn a’Mhaim instead. Well this time I got up and dow...

Daimh where is it?

Dam where is it? There was a feeling of déjà vu as i drove over the lawyer car park and came out the other side beside the Bridge of Balgie tearoom (It was another wet start to the day when Gerry and me had tried to do this walk before but has missed the turning for the Loch Estate and ended up at S...

Reminds me of Ibiza

I was on holiday a couple of years ago to a place called Cala llonga in Ibiza. The place was very pretty with lots of greenery, a white beach and crystal clear water, very picturesque. Lochan na Earba reminded me of Ibiza.. The weather is not as good, but the sheer beauty of a loch carved out in the...

Slip Slide and Sting

What a great adventure we had today. We decided to do Ben Lui and Beinn Cheibh regardless of the weather as the outlook was constantly changing. Om the way up the weather was better then we expected, even as far as Crianlarich. However once we hit Tyndrum the mist was in and the rain was presistant ...

Classic T walk and a manicure.

First walk since the fracture way back in January and what a way to ease back in to walking. It started off really well with a young stag meeting us near the underpass on the route up. https://flic.kr/p/tBSi6Y The views on the way up are breath taking and we were very lucky with the weather. http://...

Trio of challenges in Glen Falloch

This was a great days walking. Up early and Boab picked me up and made good time to the car park just out of Crainlarich which you’ll find hard to miss. We had read the reports oh walkhighlands and looked at the keys for difficulty and Bog. Though it was a very dry day and exceptional weather in the...

Re: An Sgarsoch and Carn an Fhidhleir worth a cycle

That's some distance to cover in 6.5 hours. Would take me more like 6.5 days! Good info re the bikes - do you think you should have left them further out? Shame you didn't get views from the tops but at least you got a feel for the hills further down. Love the moody shots. Hi Annie MacD Take the bi...

An Sgarsoch and Carn an Fhidhleir worth a cycle

Feeling knackered, sore and as stiff as a board. Discovered muscles that I either forgotten existed or never knew I had. An Sgarsoch and Carn an Fhidhleir is a massive walk and we cycled two thirds of it!! I had done Ben Alder last year but found this to be a tougher cycle though shorter. I had used...

Every Cloud has a silver lining

The second walk this year and old habits are hard to break. We took a slight detour and gave ourselves a harder route than we first thought. However ever cloud has a silver lining. Boab and I went without Gerry who was away on a course. What a day. Glorious sunshine, everything in the bag apart from...

Them’s the breaks at the Derry

We set off very early Sunday morning and drove from Dundee to Braemar which took just under the 2 hours. Off with the bike, boots on, rucksack packed, GPS switched on and tracking and off we went. Well not too far. Unbelievably Gerry’s pedal fell off. This was now becoming a bit of a habit as this a...

Tol Tom and Cairn x2

That’s me converted to taking a bike when I can. Parked the car at the Glen Callater car park and took the bikes off the roof rack. The path is well signed posted and though there are a few boulders it is more than good enough to cycle. Some tips • Take a bike it saves a lot of time. • Do Cairn of C...

Reoccurring Themes Carn Gorm

Gerry and I had not been out together since we did the dirty 30 Kyle of Loch Alsh at the end of June. We should have known it was to be one of those days. We left Dundee around 6 in the morning but never got to Invervar till 8am. We thought we found the car park (it was a Perth Housing Association c...
