Quality of track up Glen Lochay

Hi all, I'm looking at options for tackling the 5 munros of Glen Lochay in the near future. There is a track going from Kenknock, up Glen Lochay which leads to a pass inbetween Meall Glas and Ben Challum. Is this track bike worthy from Kenknock to the pass between the 2 munros or is it not worth the...

Viewing Hill, Round Hill, Dead Stones & Burnhope Seat

These 4 Pennine Hewitts have been on the ‘to do’ list for a while. The enormity of the drive has acted as a deterrent for many of these Hewitts in the far north. Add to this the high potential of endless bog, and it’s easy to see why the Midlander veers towards the rugged Fells of the Lakes. I’m sur...

Re: Garrigill Round (North Pennines)

Thanks for the advice. yes I agree it's a great area with plenty of its own character. The walk date was pre-booked, so unless it was really foul weather we were going regardless. We ended up with deep snow and dense fog. We only intended on doing the Hewitts so we did shave the extension to the Wes...

Re: Garrigill Round (North Pennines)

Hi Broggy1 Great report on a round of hills I've been meaning to get to, was just wondering if any of the shafts marked on the map are an actual danger or threat to the walker or dog? I've only ever found fenced off ones but an AW sketch of an open one on Tan Hill in his Pennine Way guide is enough ...

Dollywagon Pike, Seat Sandal and St Sunday Crag

Having had a 3 day trip to the Lakes ruined by Storm Eleanor, Davekermito and I were keen to attempt a day trip to the Fells, to try and salvage a few of the ideas that had been wrecked by the 100mph lethal gusts. Luckily our Hewitt maps had 3 mutual reds in an exciting area of the Helvellyn range, ...

Path condition for Coulin Forest Munros

Hi Got a chance to reach Maol Chean Dearg from Coulags and Sgorr Ruadh + Beinn Liath Mhor from Achnashellach in the next few days. Are any of the paths for these walks suitable for a bike for the ride in, or is walking better on these paths? Any views on path condition would be appreciated. Thanks.

Re: A circuit of Snowdon's western foothills

My sister and I did this route yesterday. We thoroughly enjoyed the entire route, thank you. The car park you suggested only had one vehicle in it, so no problems there. The slog up Moel Eilio was superb, with great views opening up. The big peaks were hidden in cloud, but the whole of this route la...

Re: Meol Hebog

Our walking club did this route yesterday. A superb little route enjoyed by all of us. We battled very high winds, but despite the adverse weather, it wasn't too rainy, and views to the Nantlle ridge and Snowdon were available. Some new paths meant that the return to the car was off road which was n...

Re: Where did I read this?? Help!

99% sure it was the description of Beinn a Chroin as detailed in McNeish's "The Munros" book. I found this info as a direct result of the suggestions you made, and I've noted some other tricky ones to watch out for in future. Also, Murphy's law would have come into play, as Beinn a Chroin ...

Re: Glenfinnan duo - advice needed

I set off intending to go clock wise as per Steven Fallon route. This plan was given the nod by an extremely jovial game keeper in a land rover who seemed to have all the time in the world for a very raucous chat. The ascents and descents were fine, my only improvement would be to cycle to the fork ...

Where did I read this?? Help!

Hi Somewhere recently I was reading about a Munro that has it's true summit some distance from where it's marked on top of the mountain. I read it and thought "I don't need to remember that, I'll stumble across this literature again before I climb this Munro". I've scanned all documentatio...
