Re: 3 boring Beinns from Linn of Dee

Must have missed this report from several years ago and has been raised again. It looks as if the gentleman Posting has a liking for doing long distance over several Hills during his days out ..ok that is his choice as it is his choice to do ticking off hills as he gets out just as it is the choice ...

Re: An Sgarsoch/Carn an Fhidhlier - how far by bike

Depends which way that you approach from. :) My own approach was from the Wildlife Park on my old road bike in April 1980. Left the bike near to Ruigh fionntaig and then via the Slochd Beag, across the infant Feshie and on to the two summits. Return down the Feshie path with a river fording to regai...

Re: Alternative parking sugarbowl carpark (Cairn Toul-Braeri

Alternatively, especially so if you have an off road kike. :) Park up near the Baird/Barrie memorial close to Whitewell in one of several off-road slots for a motor. Into Glen Eanaich where there are several ways onto the high ground.

Re: Loch Quoich parking charge

I am sure that the previous poster is correct. The Kingie folks are the most civil that you could wish to meet. I have met them a few years back.
Also although houses are on the north side of the Loch the stalking grounds are across the Loch and are reached mainly by boat.

Re: Sgòr Gaoith, from Glen Feshie

Came past the all Ruadh parking yesterday afternoon...there were half a dozen vehicles parked in the space...no barrier thing at the entrance. Just one notice regarding parking space further up the road.
Seems to be no Forestry stuff going on at the moment.

Re: Beinn a Ghlo 3 from Glenn Tilt ?

That sounds like a tough day out using the bike....I take it that it was not an battery assisted bike :lol: that would be a really tough day out. I do use a bike when out but just to reach where I want to walk uphill from. The only time when I carried a bike, years ago, was to reach the Corbett Leat...

Re: Sgòr Gaoith, from Glen Feshie

As the sign at the entrance to the Allt Ruadh reads...closed for Forestry operations until the Spring. Access to the hill path is still OK. I came down this way and out a couple of weeks ago.
Just park up elsewhere nearby and there doesn't seem to be any problem.

Re: Which OS maps do I need?

Well there is always something new to learn.....The Hughs....very new to me. There will be some grand wee hills amongst that list I guess....I am also sure that I must have got to some of them without knowing of the book listing. Must have a wee look at the book of details. Yes take it easy and buil...

Re: Beinn a Ghlo 3 from Glenn Tilt ?

I did the reverse of this route many years ago on Winter....no cycle of course:-) However had to back track a bit to get to a bridge for the river crossing.... Too much ice in the river to risk a crossing.

Re: Which OS maps do I need?

Hello, If the Scottish Hills are your thing? Then the SMC Hillwalker guides will give you the Ordnance Survey maps needed for each walk detailed.....For Munros, Corbetts not sure if the new Graham's book does have map Numbers? The earlier Dempster book did have them for each walk.

Re: Scottish Paths Map

Had a wee look at some in our local area.....the two marked with crossings of the Luineag river coming out of Loch Morlich would present difficult crossings when the water is running high.

Re: Scarba?

Yes, that Trigpoint perched above Cullipool just has to be reached. :) One path up and a different one down looking onto the rooftops of the houses.
