Re: Tower Ridge, The Ben and CMD

I used to hear of folks who used the distillery approach to the Ben but never went that way to reach the Allt a' Mhuilinn path. When we first went to the Ben, in the 1960's, it was from what is now the Golf course and from there over the old narrow gauge rails to get onto the path now reachable from...

Re: Torr Alvie - The 5th Duke of Gordon's Memorial

A very pleasant Sunday lunchtime outing for we staying local. :) The parking just inside the Camp place entrance has been extended I guess to accommodate the folks arriving for the various activities and food on offer now....usually, and especially at this time of the year, space there for parking f...

Re: Climbing Agag's Groove | Buachaille Etive Mor

Hello, I knew nothing of what happened on the Fools Paradise.... a very tragic event....my visits there were a long time back during the early seventies....I guess that we all become, in some way, responsible for the wear and tear on these climbs :( My last visit to this area of the lakes was in Spr...

Re: Climbing Agag's Groove | Buachaille Etive Mor

It just seems that Forum Topics can Migrate easily to other areas :) Not completely a bad thing to happen? but we have strayed a longish way from the pleasures to be found on the Rannoch Wall....apologies to the original Poster. :) We have now arrived in Borrowdale the home of many accessible crags....

Re: Scottish highlands long distance paths - recommendation?

The official Ways, that I am not too acquainted with, but from what you read of these multi days route those doing them seem to have pleasant experiences and of course I hear about these days spent out from both my Wife and daughter. Have come across several of the Long Distance paths when reaching ...

Re: Cuillin Ridge - South Part

Hello, hardy to be up there in the wet....was it cold too? I guess that your second peak would be Sgurr Dubh Mor which is slightly away from the the Ridge but no less a part of the traverse. How did you reach Alasdair from Sgurr Dubh an-da Bheinn when you returned from Sgurr Dubh Mor...the direct li...

Re: An Indian summer in Torridon.

Yes I didn't know anything of the 'pole bridge'...maybe it is very new? And it is up near to Loch Clair. Mel uses the Strava app? to record the journey etc. See the mickey mouse Map.

Re: An Indian summer in Torridon.

A little less summery further up the glen on Sunday the following day. Sgurr Dubh was the choice for that day. Never been to the hill by the way chosen...our own way was up the fine path from the Ling Cottage to reach both Corbetts from the South. Looks as if the approach for Mel was from up the roa...

An Indian summer in Torridon.

Quite different in The Cairngorms yesterday. :) My daughter Mel sent me a couple of images of her day out in Torridon.
The images of her and the Dingo appear to be on Beinn Alligin. With the Loch between Alligin and Baosbhien showing in one image.

Re: 3 boring Beinns from Linn of Dee

Must have missed this report from several years ago and has been raised again.

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...
