Re: A steep climb to Wee Tory (I think?!)

I guess a walk up a hill is no big deal for a time traveller. Date walked: 28/04/2013 :shock:

Nice pictures. Really get the essence of the steep sided hills.

Re: Knapdale (Kilmory to Ellary right of way)

Hi, to answer your question - yes, you can walk, or cycle it. Whether it is a "Right of Way" I am not so sure. The first time I went that way, I saw the Private sign at Ellary and turned back, but my mate told me not to worry as it is ok to proceed. The second time, some 'chap' stoped me ...

Re: Knapdale (Kilmory to Ellary right of way)

Thanks Allan I had thought that rights of way in that sense was an English thing and that the meaning was different in Scotland. Utter nonsense that idea :oops: The Scottish Rights of way site was quite helpful in putting me right. I had a look for it after I saw your reply. http://www.scotways.com...

Re: Munro recommendations for an Argyll stay

Hi annakerr, I imagine you'll get lot's of big hill recommendations which will be great I'm sure. But here's a walk that goes from the south east end of Loch Awe over to Loch Fyne. Details in the link below. I think this would be a very interesting walk but perhaps others who've done it could commen...

Re: Knapdale (Kilmory to Ellary right of way)

What does the phrase 'right of way' mean in Scotland nowadays? The following is from the SNH website, " A right of way is a route along which the public have a right of passage. To be a right of way, a route must meet certain conditions. The main ones are that the route must have been used by ...

Re: Great Glen vs East Highland Way ?

Hi I have never done the EHW but I have done GGW on a bike. I have to say the GGW is a bit of a poor route and I was glad I did it on a bike to make sure I finished it quicker! Pete Hi, Realise the original post is about walking it but on the idea of cycling... I've cycled the GGW also and have to ...

Re: A local hill's cry for help

it constantly amazes me the amount of litter that people leave around our loch sides." I agree, a couple of years ago I saw a litter patrol along Loch Venacher. Popular with 1 night campers that might throw a line into the loch if they can be arsed. Who then seem to leave half the contents of ...

Knapdale (Kilmory to Ellary right of way)

Hi all, Does anyone know if there's a right of way between the road at Balimore (just south of Kilmory) and Ellary (over at Loch Caolisport)? I can see a track on the OS map and wondered if you can walk or cycle on it. Reason for asking is at the Ellary end of the route there's a sign marked Private...

Re: Dumgoyne,Earl's Seat,Stronend,Carleatheran, then Stirlin

Walk report of the month! IMHO. :clap: I do find walks like this more interesting than the big peaks. Maybe cause all my walking when growing up was in the small hills around Loch Lomond. Stoney Mullen, Boturich etc. Diffrent strokes for different folks I guess. :) I hope to do some walks like this ...
