Re: A Perfect Day on East Glenshee

What a lovely read! I love that round though last time we did it in December, the clag was down (the forecast was for it to be clear :( ) so it's great to see your sunny clear photos. As you say, navigation up there in a white out is no fun! Thank you! Yes, we'd had a taste of the plateau in the cl...

A Perfect Day on East Glenshee

Map $matches[2] Having tackled Glas Maol and Creag Leacach in fairly overcast conditions in the first week of the Easter holidays, Francis and I headed back up the A93 in the second week to complete the East Glenshee quartet with Carn an Tuirc and Cairn of Claise. The difference this time was that t...

Re: A Good Friday on Glas Maol - and a brush with fame!

Having done these two from Glen Isla, almost all in clag, it was great to see the infinitely better views you got coming from the Cairnwell side. Amazing to bump into Murray Wilkie too! :clap: Ha! Yes, I just had a read of your report and I think we were definitely luckier with visibility! That cir...

A Good Friday on Glas Maol - and a brush with fame!

$matches[2] Easter school holidays meant a chance to add to Francis' Munro tally and the Glas Maol quartet looked tempting but I thought he might baulk at a 20km circuit so I decided to take them on in pairs over two trips. Part one would be Glas Maol and Creag Leacach, so on a cool and overcast Go...

Re: Moorfoots (I Didn't Start The Fire!)

Great report. Full of useful info. We've got this circuit in our sights soon so this is really helpful. Cheers. :thumbup:

Better late than never on Schiehallion.

Schiehallion was supposed to be Francis' first Munro but, as with much of our plans for the hills, things changed and we ended up on Beinn Ghlas instead. (see earler report for that adventure!) One of the factors for the change was concern about carparking - but then I read a comment online (perhaps...

Glensheezy-peezy

Following last week's adventure on Beinn Ghlas I wanted to keep up momentum and keep Francis engaged and enthused about taking to the hills. The 'bagging' aspect appealed to him - he's from the Pokemon generation, after all - so I wanted to find an outing that wasn't too strenuous but would still ea...

Francis' first - Beinn Ghlas - but Sideways!

After all our 'build-up' outings last year, we'd been champing at the bit to get back into the hills this spring and finally let Francis tick off his first Munro. This gloriously sunny weekend presented our chance. So, bags packed, flask filled, sandwiches wrapped, up early and off we went. We'd ori...

Re: Walking While "ill"

Thank you for posting this beautiful tribute. It must've been incredibly difficult to write. Even not knowing either of you, I found it a moving and inspiring portrait of a clearly remarkable man. I'm so sorry for your loss.

Re: Breaking The Law

Has the toposcope gone? I forgot to look for it, but it was there the first two times I climbed it (2nd time 2010) No, it's definitely still there. I think I didn't mention it in the report because I've never known what those things were actually called - until now! Toposcope is such a great and ap...

Thanks!
'Taking a picture' is a good excuse to stop for a breather - so I tend to take quite a lot!
Couldn't go wrong with the blue skies that day though.

Breaking The Law

I was looking for one more decent day out before Xmas. Francis finally had a pair of 'proper' boots I'd picked up on Gumtree for him that he was eager to test. We both still had one eye on Schiehallion in the New Year. Ben Cleuch fitted the bill perfectly. Not too far away. A nice loop. And, I notic...

Tip Top on Tinto

In gently edging Francis toward his first Munro our next step took us to South Lanarkshire and the joys of Tinto. This is a hill which has a bit of mythic quality for me having grown up only sixteen miles away in West Lothian. Yet despite having heard of it since childhood I somehow never got round ...
