Unexpected walk in Rothiemurchus Forrest

A Strange walk today and far from what I had planned. Indeed I planned many walks for this weekend. I was considering heading North to tackle Beinn Dearg and a few neighbours and I also considered going up to Helmsdale and climbing Morven and the Maiden Pap and last night I was considering going ove...

First Hillwalk of the Year - Yeeah!"

I like this walk, it may become a favourite in the summer for warm evenings with long sunsets. Had initally planned to climb the Corbett at the head of Beauly Firth today - Bealach Na Bhuach Ard - but climbing partner wasn’t up for the potentially challenging day and so after much dalying and other ...

Carrbridge Explorer

Having read some of the other reports for this sparkling weekend of weather it was obvious that alarm clocks were set early here, there and everywhere. However we stayed in bed until 9am and then sauntered around with a leuisurely breakfast until 11am before finally heading south to Carrbridge. The ...

Loch Moy Loop

A trip to Loch Moy Have long tried to see Loch Moy, which is barely visible from the A9 and, incredibly, even less so from the minor road that leads to Moy itself. This time we planned to walk in a loop above the loch but in the end elected to circumvent the entire loch itself. We drove out of Inve...

First Walk of the New Year

First walk of the New Year, albeit a little short. Had a little time to kill before starting work in Drumnadrochit so decided to do this wee little walk starting from the Loch Ness Hotel on the A82. Many times I have passed this spot and seen the sign at the head of the car park saying “Woodland Wal...

A Fistful of Corbetts In Strathcaron

Took the road straight on from Marybank for once and headed all the way down the quiet lanes of Strathcaron as far as Strathmore. Parked by a little spot of forestry and started to walk the steep climb to our first intended corbet of the day at Meallan Nan Uan. Route up was very steep and quite well...
