Re: If I'd known what I know now I'd not have gone

Thanks for a very helpful report. I did this walk yesterday, in glorious conditions. When I left the car park, I wasn't sure what combination of the three eastern Mamores left to climb I was going to do, but by the time I got up to the top of the track, I thought that going out to Binnein Beag would...

Re: My Fisherfield humiliation

Thanks again for a great report. I did these two yesterday, my first of the year, so your report and photos made a big difference in deciding how to tackle them. I ended up doing them anti-clockwise, Sgurr Ban first, but, wow, was I whacked at the end of a very long day (a few hours more than you). ...

Re: Ben Avon on foot the whole way

I had planned to do Avon today, and reading your report beforehand, especially with all the pictures, helped greatly. For once this 'summer', It turned out a good day after all, and the excellent tracks and paths helped as well. Blowing a hooley on the tor (yes, I did go to the top, but had safety w...

Re: With Pam & Gary as they Compleat on An Teallach!

Thanks for this report which I checked out before heading to An Teallach yesterday. Unlike you, I got a really cracking day of clear blue skies, a gentle breeze, and wall to wall sunshine. The cold pint at the Dundonnell Hotel at the end of the day was most welcome, and well-earnt! I too was at the ...

Re: Bad weather on Bidean nam Bian

Thanks for your video. I did this one last week (7th Sept) but, whilst it wasn't raining, the summits were shrouded in cloud so no views at all. I met up with another couple of folk on the summit of Bidean (they started behind me, but must have taken a by-pass once we got to the top of the corrie) a...

Re: Loch Mullardoch Munros 19th May

The last of the 7 o'clock gang eventually made it back to his car shortly after 6, and I was so glad I didn't have too long a drive home. Am afraid I was struggling, more up and down than I had bargained for, and the high ridge was very blustery, so sorry I couldn't keep up with you. Still, a good d...

Re: 5 years, 1 week and 1 compleat day

Congratulations Simon, well done on your compleation. I did these two in May this year, and the weather was as usual mixed. The bothy was a welcome refuge to dry out, before the long walk-out. I'm glad these two are behind me now, as they always seemed to be a daunting task.

Re: It's a long, long way back to Glen Feshie!

Hello BP, many thanks for your walk report on these two. I climbed them yesterday and, not for the first time, read your report beforehand to see what was in store. As always, I found it very informative and entertaining. Despite the forecast, it stayed dryish for me, one or two drizzly showers but ...

An Ey for an Ey - 150 not out on Carn Bhac

Why do we do it? I mean, get up at 6am on a Saturday, drive 80 miles, then get soaked almost as soon as you set out on a walk? The plan for today was Carn a'Mhaim, and possibly Derry Cairngorm as well, from the Linn of Dee. Heading up to the Lecht in constant rain and limited visibility, I seriously...

Would be keen to join in if possible, dates fairly flexible and short notice should be ok.

Re: 4 Munro's, 16 Miles and nobody else

Enjoyed reading this, and seeing your terrific photos, as I did these 4 on Friday, so similar conditions as you got. Great outlook all round, with An Teallach just begging to be climbed! This past month has really made up for the grotty summer we've had!

Re: Knoydart. ceasers compleation on loonie bin video

Thanks for a great video, and well done on the compleation. I'm just back from a couple of nights in Inverie, and did these two on Friday. Very soggy underfoot on the paths, like walking through a burn all day, but eventually made it. I also did it anti-clockwise, but took the footpath all the way t...

Re: An idiots guide how to take a road bike up a mountain

Hi Mountainlove, I thought you looked familiar when we met at the summit of Carn on Saturday, and then I saw your name when I marked up this one on the WH site that night. Now I remember, we met on the South Cluanie ridge on a scorching July day a couple of years ago. Thanks for a great report and a...
