Re: Loch Ossian - which side to go down?

Yep, the north side of Loch Ossian is a breeze on a bike - you can probably also carry on for a couple of Km east of the Lodge, as there was a new track built up to a new small hydro scheme the last time I was there (a couple of years ago)

Re: Easy Winter Munro?

One of the most-tiring walks of my Munro-bagging career was Meall Buidhe in (Glen Lyon), which should take 3 hours on a good day, but the 3rd January 2018 wasn't a particularly good day! - deep soft snow from the moment I stepped out of the car, peat hags that were invisible (cos the snow had filled...

Re: beinn a bhuird from north anyone?

I had a fabulous solo mid-week walk in June a few years back - cycled in the evening before from Cock Bridge, with a short detour to visit the source of the Don, then down to Dail Builg where I camped, surrounded by the sounds of pee-weeps and curlews, up bright and early for a circuit of all of Ben...

Re: Beinn Eighe with attempt on Sail Mhor

Yep, I too have looked at the 'Ugly Step' from above and decided it was too ugly.

Great report btw!

Cowal Way in August 2020 (Part 2)

$matches[2] This was the 2nd half of a week's family holiday walking the Cowal Way. The first half was done north to south (Arrochar to Garvie Farm/Dunans Castle (on the A886), via 4 Corbetts (see my earlier Long Distance Routes report and 3 x 1-day Corbett Walk Reports for details) and the 2nd hal...

Cowal Way in August 2020 (Part 1)

$matches[2] First half of the Cowal Way, plus 4 memorable/ scenic/ fun Corbetts which I managed to pick up on the way past. I would highly recommend this 3-day/4-day walk, though it is fair to say that last stretch (from the nice bit of Glen Branter to Garvie Farm) didn't have an awful lot to recom...

Overview of a Fun-Filled Week Walking the Cowal Way

This was a one-week family walking holiday in August 2020, planned and undertaken as the Scottish tourist industry was starting to get going again, following the Covid-19 pandemic lock-down earlier in the year. We drove to Arrochar on the Saturday and back to Glasgow via the Dunoon-Gourock ferry on ...

Re: Liathach ..Mullach an Rathain

I ascended from the west and descended via the 'standard' path down the front - it was a while ago now, but I don't remember having any problems - though I suspect it might be trickier finding a route through the crags in poor visibility, if the OS Explorer map is to believed. Assuming you do have e...

Re: Munros.. Which order?

Keep a good selection of the 'boring / easy' ones (i.e. round humps close to a main road) for winter, so that you don't run out of (non-life-threatening) winter walks halfway through your bagging career. And when you start running out of manageable day trips and (1 day + 1 night) trips, look at all ...

Beinn Bheula on the way past

$matches[2] Day 3 of a family holiday walking the Cowal Way (North to South) and the 4th Corbett of the week for me. All 3 of us started from the Drymsynie House hotel and had a very pleasant stroll along the shores of the north end of Loch Goil, following the Cowal Way waymarkers to show us the co...

Cnoc Cnoc, I'm Brack

$matches[2] This was Day_1 of a 6-day holiday (?) walking the Cowal Way between Arrochar and Tignabruaich with my wife and adult son, during which I managed to sneak up a total of 4 great Corbetts along the way. I'll provide links to my walk reports for the other two Corbetts (Ben Donich on Day_2 a...

Re: Derry Lodge Cycle

I have often found the midges to be particularly 'pesky' around Derry Lodge - so much so that I'd rather cycle up and down to Derry Lodge a couple of extra times, rather than camp around there at this time of year.

Re: Walking through Scotland in a straight line -need lines

Given the way Scotland has been folded in the past, there is likely to be quite a bit of 'up and down' involved in any north-south route!. Instead, I reckon you should walk the East/West watershed - this has been done before and is perhaps not the most-direct route ( :lol: ), but at least it avoids ...
