Crossed the bridge and entered the field to the left following the path round the side of the river to the edge of the campsite. From here I accidentally turned onto the West Highland way ...

Ben Macdui

Started off at the ski centre car park on a glorious July morning and took the route along the front of the corrie faces up towards the Larig Gru. Paths were great due to this cracking summer we have had up here. The uphill starts here but you are rewarded with great views of the Fiacaill buttress. ...

First hill walk of 2019 and a wee one to start with. Set off from the temporary car park with my faithful dog Fraoch (AKA Daftarse) up the road and track to Loch Humphrey.

Best day of the year so far as me and the dog set off for Dhiseig. Parked the car on the grassy makeshift carpark on the sea side of the road and set off for the summit along the road to the house then on to the field up the side of the burn. From here it was up through the next gate onto slightly m...
