Re: Difficulties of route

Just to update folks, did this walk again Sat Jan 22, 2011 and this time encountered no stags in the field. The approach track was even boggier than on the first ascent and the heather-bashing on to the hill no easier. A challenge but still enjoyable as a winter outing. The entrance gate to the fiel...

Re: My first Munro

Well done Adam, I'm sure you'll be back for more. Happy Munro climbing and exploring the magnificent Scottish countryside. Enjoyed your company on Ben Cruachan.
Peter (back in Inverness). :D

Re: Ben Damph, the perfect autumn outing

Don't worry mountain coward, the hill's not as fierce as it appears - and it is indeed the one "opposite" Liathach - though a certain amount of care is needed in places. Cracking picture John. Will be adding some of my own shortly. The pub referred to, by the way, is the Torridon Inn, conv...

Ben Damph, the perfect autumn outing

A glorious October Sunday and not another soul on the hill - because they were all on the neighbouring Munros - made the walk even more special. We shared it only with ptarmigan, rutting stags roaring in the corries and an eagle soaring majestically. The stalking track up through the trees provides ...

Re: Meall Fuar Mhonaidh, Loch Ness

A local hill for me, living in Inverness, and as you've both said, a very pleasant outing with a real hill feel to it and superb views back across Loch Ness. No real route-finding problems for novices either. Well worth doing.

Re: Difficulties of route

Some interesting (and amusing) deer tales sparked by my report. Having spoken since to a friend who does some stalking, the advice is that a stag could attack at any time, but on open ground the beast is more likely to run away rather than approach. The advisory notice on the gate leaves it up to th...

Difficulties of route

Not a route to be underestimated this one, and I've climbed many easier Munros. The approach to the summit involves a boggy lower track after the dam, then heather bashing on trackless terrain to reach the top. A fine viewpoint is the reward for all the effort, followed by a pleasant ridge walk. The...
