Grand Canyon - nae its Rumbling Bridge !

Recovering from a knee injury I decided to try the Rumbling Bridge walk. No Munros here, and instead of going uphill, its down into the murky depths of a Gorge.

Glen Lyon Horseshoe beaten by two stents

Preamble to title - Looking back to last year its hard to imagine that I was unable to walk a 200 meters without having to stop and rest. I was suffering from acute Angina and it was gradually stopping me hillwalking and doing other things. However in August last I had Stents fitted to one of my he...

Re: Glen Lyon 4 ( snow showers and sunburn)

These hills are on my list for tackling soon. Won't be tackling them as a one'r though, too old for multiple Munro's.
Enjoyed your photos and report well laid out and a good read.
Best regards, Second Chance.

As I suffer from slight vertigo, I'll have put this hill to the back of my must do's. Don't mind exposure but his looked a bit scary especially on loos...

Re: Photo Competition #14

Photo title : "The Frog of Meall Ghaordaidh !" Spied this very large frog shaped stone, while on my descent of this fine winter Munro. The Lawers Group was a fitting backdrop to this ancient piece of rock, that appeared to be resting on its way up the hill. Hope you enjoy. Date Taken : 19...
