Buachaille Etive Beag

Taking advantage of the good weather we headed to Buachaille Etive Beag with Jan and Marek. We climbed both Stob Coire Raineach (925mt) and Stob Dubh (968mt) and the views from the top were superbe. The idea was flying down paragliding but again, the winds were too strong. North rough winds that put...

Ben Vorlich

I wanted to fly from the top of Ben Vorlich since the day was sunny and the breeze was gentle, however it was blowing from the South, so that was back wind. I thought of taking off towards South and then turn around by the little col between Ben Vorlich and StΓΉc a' Chroin, but it was pretty clear th...

Beinn a' Chroin (942 mt) An Caisteal (995 mt)

Ver muddy, windy, rainy and snowy day in the Crianlarich area. I wanted to fly off the munros, but obviously it wasn't the ideal day... I enjoyed having 4 seasons in one day though. To the next one! https://youtu.be/QBv-uKqXdG0 You can follow me on Strava and check the track for this route here πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡...

CΓ rn Gorm, Meall Garbh, Carn Mairg, Meall nan Aighean

We did the ridge that links all these 4 munros thinking of flying off the last one, but unfortunately the wind was too strong for take off. The views from the top are superbe reaching the Nevis Range, Glencoe, Ben Lomond, the Cairngorms and many more mountains and areas. You can see a good bit of Sc...

Ben Nevis (Hike & Fly)

We climbed Ben Nevis in 2016. Hike & Fly to Ben Nevis in Scotland, the highest mountain in Scotland and the UK. Taking advantage of the good weather, which doesn't usually last long, we went up the Ben Nevis on August the 7th and I could fly down on a very smooth and comfortable flight. No therm...

Ben Lawers and Beinn Ghlas (Hike & Fly)

Hike and Fly to the 2 munros above Loch Tay with base camp in Killin. I had a very good day and conditions looked promising, so I headed to the area to hike these two munros and try to fly from the summit of one of them. I finally took off from Beinn Ghlas as it has perfect grassy slopes on the top,...

Re: Cuillin Ridge - South Part

Hello, hardy to be up there in the wet....was it cold too? I guess that your second peak would be Sgurr Dubh Mor which is slightly away from the the Ridge but no less a part of the traverse. How did you reach Alasdair from Sgurr Dubh an-da Bheinn when you returned from Sgurr Dubh Mor...the direct l...

Cuillin Ridge - South Part

We only climbed 3 munros out of 11 due to wet and misty conditions. We'll come back to complete the ridge. Still a great day out.
