Re: A rotten route off Conival & Ben More Assynt!

Started up that way once, but moved out onto the steep grass to the right (would've been on your left as you came down). Steep but reasonable enough. However I'd much rather go up it than down as the best line through the bands of crag is hard to spot from above. A nice bit of steep grass is always...

Re: A rotten route off Conival & Ben More Assynt!

I have no idea how that gully made it into any guidebook - unpleasant and potentially dangerous. The slopes just south of the gully are a viable alternative on steep grass, but still not ideal in the wet. I would definitely recommend continuing to Carn nan Conbhairean and taking a line that skirts ...

A rotten route off Conival & Ben More Assynt!

I think I’m right in saying the WHW summer meet is coming to Inchnadamph in July? So maybe this tale might interest any in the group who are thinking of tackling these fantastic mountains…..I’d love to know if anyone else has had a similar experience taking the non-standard route off the mountain…. ...

Re: Glenfinnan to Inverie with a wee detour up Sgurr na Cich

Lovely report - thank you. Its especially helpful because we'd been wondering about going up Sgurr na Ciche from the Sourlies bothy on a backpacking trip from Glenfinnan to Shiel Bridge. Great photos, :D Wow - just looked at that on the map - what would it entail? That looks quite a zig zag route b...

Glenfinnan to Inverie with a wee detour up Sgurr na Ciche 3

our_route.gpx When P&P told me they were doing a walk from Glenfinnan to Inverie, my munro baggers ears pricked up! Ah-ha - surely that goes along the base of the Sgurr na Ciche ridge? That’s one of those outings I'd been pondering for some time, having caught the distinctive shape of that hill...

Re: Winter in the Cairngorms - but isn't it Spring?

I was very jealous of the ski tourers. There were a lot of you out and it looked amazing. Never tried it but I think I must! The route back from Ben Macdui to Cairngorm looked so cool! 8)

Re: Winter in the Cairngorms - but isn't it Spring?

yep, I remember passing you Monarchming! I think I said 'cracking day' or something like that! Which it was. Beinn Bhreac is still to come - going to combine it with Beinn a' Chaorainn I reckon. How was the camping? There were quite a few tents out around Derry Lodge that evening but did the weather...

Winter in the Cairngorms - but isn't it Spring?

our_route.gpx More snow during the week + good forecast + longer days = ideal for a walk in the Cairngorms! So off we went - and it didn't have to be too early which was also ideal! Ten to 7 on the last day of April saw Ben and I heading up the road to Braemar from Fife with a nice feeling of antic...

Re: Tidying up on a cracking day - The Right Way Round!

interesting though the harebell-bluebell thread is, I'm more interested in your point about The Right Way Round. I just did that route today - the same way as you did and I completely agree - why would you want to do the smooth grassy side of Stob Coir an Albannaich first? It doesn't look like anyth...

Not a bad way to find Beinn Mhanach

our_route.gpx Weather forecast was optimistic for the West Highlands and I was due to meet up with an old friend from working days in Glasgow - up from London to try out his boots. No doubting his fitness though - he'd come up to cycle the 90 mile Bealach Mor Sportive at Applecross 2 days before! H...

Braeriach and its friends by bike to Loch Einich

This was day 3 of our 'Chasing weather across the north of Scotland' trip. We'd had good then bad weather on the west coast the previous 2 days so maybe the east would treat us better? MWIS seemed to think it might, although it was forecast to be another day of 35-40 mph with strong gusts on the hig...

Chasing weather across the North [2] - Fannaich failure

This was Day 2 of my 4 day walking lottery across northern Scotland with walking buddy Mr T. Having had a good day on Seana Bhraigh we thought we'd chance a second in the area, despite MWIS saying mountains south of Ullapool near the coast might have low cloud persisting. Well, the Fannaichs aren't ...

Chasing weather in the north 1) Seana Bhraigh from Oykel Br

our_route.gpx Day 1 of a long-awaited 4 day idyll in the north of Scotland with my walking buddy Mr T, going wherever the weather map was pointing us. Mwis saying West is Best so we opted for Seana Bhraigh. We'd been planning today's route for a year or so - having done the Deargs from the Ullapool...

Does anyone want to take part in a Ramblers consultation?

A friend of mine sent me a link to a Ramblers Scotland consultation. I think it ends soon. They are looking for views on what direction they should be taking in the future. I'm not a member myself but have always been aware of them. It only takes a few minutes. http://www.ramblers.org.uk/RSsurvey?dm...
