Re: Ben Vrackie - A sunrise to remember.

Thanks for sharing this marvellous record of your trip - the photos and video are stunning. I am planning to do BVr in a couple of weeks - sounds like I am going to see some beautiful views. Have just done the Eildon Hills near Melrose and very much agree that sometimes the views from the smaller hi...

Re: First trip to Scotland. First munro.

As someone else who carries a bit of extra 'timber' and also climbed Ben Lomond as my first Munro, I totally endorse the thoughts of Tobi here. Well done fella on climbing it - I have since done Schiehallion, Ben Chonzie which I found easier than Lomond and of course there are many where you start a...

Ben Vane - small but perfectly formed

With new boots to try and memories of a nightmarish days on nearby Beinn Narnain and Beinn Ime to erase, we set out to conquer the wee Munro, number 282 out of 282, Ben Vane. This particular Arrochar Alp could not have been more welcoming as the barest wisp of clag hung onto the top of mighty Ben L...

Lost in Mist - My Humour, My Dignity and Direction.

Fired up by the fact that we missed the ascent on a previous trip, due to the inclement weather, Claire and I decided to tackle the fine Beinn Narnain. Enthused by watching an old YouTube video of Muriel Gray tackling this hill ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vo5EXnNvNdo ) and with weather promised...

Kings Seat

To take advantage of the lighter nights and the wonderful weather we decided to investigate the eastern Ochills after a previous visit to Dumyat. Setting off from the upper car park close to Castle Campbell and making our way around the burn we reached open hillside. We continued to the right and th...

Re: Ben A'an

Thanks for that - as a newbie to hill walking did not appreciate the topographical aspects. At least I know I have climbed it lol

Ben A'an

Although the walk and hill are included here, I am surprised that there is no possibility of been able to log it as a climbed hill. Is there a reason 'You have not climbed this hill' tick box on the hill page?

Loch Lomond - not the first but My First Munro

A blazing June Saturday greeted Claire and I as we headed out of Glasgow to head to Rowardennan to park the car before the walk. I was nervous as this was to be my first attempt at a Munro and not being the fittest fifty-something on Earth. :shock: I was also excited as the weather promised to deliv...

Re: Auchineden Hill/Whangie

This walk was my first ever in the hills of Scotland - a great little introduction to outdoors. Lucky to get a sunny day in May earlier this year. Fantastic day out.......
