Beinn Mhic-Mhonaidh from Glen Strae

Had my eye on this Corbett for a while but fancied finding an alternative route up it, I'd noticed a possible route up Glen Strae coming off the old military road. We parked up at the small car park just off the road and set off up the glen. IMG_4331.JPG After a couple of km the path splits, but not...

Beinn Liath Mhór from SMC Ling Hut

In my quest to climb every Munro individually (and by an alternative route) I set my sights on the hills accessible from Glen Torridon. $matches[2] Setting off from the SMC's Ling Hut we followed the track southwards, at around 480m there is a small cairn, the OS map shows that the path doglegs to t...

Re: Meall na Teanga from Loch Arkaig

Thanks, despite over 20 years experience in the hills and I still managed to make a stupid mistake like that, I felt especially foolish as I'd made so much effort to find a way through the forestry on my ascent. Hi Smalltounboy, Thank you for your exciting contribution. In 2019, the same thing happe...

Meall na Teanga from Loch Arkaig

In my quest to climb every munro individually (and by an alternative route) I set my sights on Meall na Teanga in Lochaber. $matches[2] I'd previously climbed Srón a' Choire Ghairbh from Kilfinnan with my club (Kilmarnock MC) a few years earlier but abandoned an attempt on Meall na Teanga due to poo...

Beinn a'Chaorainn from Glen Roy

A lot of the members in my club have compleated their Munro's so I'm always on the lookout for an obscure alternative route to make things more interesting for them. Beinn a'Chaorainn had been on radar my for a while but the poor parking on the A86 meant getting there very early, not easy if travell...

Creag Mhór from Auch

As part of my quest to climb each Munro individually I'm always on the lookout for an obscure little used route. I'd climbed Beinn Mhanach the previous year and cycled round Loch Lyon from Pubil, I noticed how close the track at the head of the loch came to Creag Mhór. I had considered bivvying over...

Re: Beinn Bhuidhe via the hydro track

I'd seen this route on another posting and decided to give it a go rather than cycle up the the glen. IMG_4526.jpg There are two hydro tracks that both lead to a water intake further up the hillside, the newer more westerly track has an easier gradient, however within a few kilometres I found that ...

Beinn Mhanach from Glen Lyon

I'd climbed Beinn Challum from the A82 a few months previously and found it to be a disappointing slog only to read later about better routes up from the Glen Lochay side, with this in mind I was determined to make my climb up Beinn Mhanach as exciting as I could. I had 3 days at my disposal (Thur, ...

Long Weekend in the Far North

I'd previously taken a solo trip to the far north back in June to do the four most northerly Munro's, however the weather dictated that only 2 would be completed (Conival & Ben More Assynt). Fast forward to Sept where issues with the accommodation for my mountaineering club's Sept meet in the La...
