Excellent Day on the Hills

Excellent day on the Hills! Good weather forecast worthy of a full day on the hills so off to Arrochar. Start of the route: The Start.jpg After only about 100 metres the footpath directly up to Beinn Narnain breaks off right. The start of the path is not that obvious. However, within about a 100 met...

Fabulous Views - a great day on the Hills

A great day on the Hills: Fantastic spell of weather, very hot with only a slight breeze but fabulous views and a super walk (although see my comments about the descent route off). Note: I have previously done the route off Ben Lawers down the East ridge and along the track back to Lawers Burn and, ...

4 Munros Circuit - Anti Clockwise + the Hydro Scheme!!

4 Munros in a Day ! And you get the bonus of enjoying (!?!) all the earth moving equipment on the hydro electric scheme! As Panther's walk report in April said, this is another Glen where a major hydro-electric scheme is being built and at present it looks very ugly low down near the road. However, ...

Pleasant walk after a dry spell

Nice Walk after a dry Spell But could be a bit of a bog after a wet period! Pleasant, straightforward walk with good views from the summit. I did this after about 2 weeks of dry weather and some of the peaty sections of the walk were still quite boggy. After a wet spell these boggy areas could turn ...

Grest Start to the Summer!

Great start to the Summer1 First of the season and chosen because I had to be back down mid afternoon for a work call. There is a lot of construction work on the railway bridge and a lot of traffic up to the dam but SSE have maintained the pedestrian access. It was heaving with lorries for about 30 ...

2 cracking mountains!

Lovely day out on two very worthwhile mountains. The description given is very good and doesn't need much expansion. START: The layby is only about 2KM South of Crianlarich (from the junction of the A82 and A85) The pull up to the summit of Sron Gharbh from the first track is pretty steep but the pa...

Meall Corranaich - get the start right and wear gaiters!

Meall Corranaich & Meall a Choire Leith: I did these two after a long dry spell and the terrain was still in places very boggy so I was really pleased I had put on gaiters from the start. I wouldn't advise these walks after a spell of wet weather! Get the Start right:- Underneath the large cairn...

Beinn Tulaichean & Cruach Ardrain - Boggy slog & good ridge

Beinn Tulaichean & Cruach Ardrain - A boggy slog but a good ridge! The MWIS forecast was for 90% Munro visibility but unfortunately this never materialised. The good news is that the hydro works at Inverlochlarig farm seem to have finished and the path is no longer diverted around the farm. The...

Stuchd An Lochain

Stuchd An Lochain - A Good Munro when the weather is less than perfect. My original plan was to do the Tarmachan Ridge but on arriving in Killin it was persisting down and visibility on the hills looked minimal. This was not forecast! I decided upon a lesser objective:- Stuchd An Locairn. The minor ...

Ben Vorlich & Stuc a Chroin - Heather erosion

Ben Vorlich & Stuc a Chroin Great day with excellent views, warm with pleasant breeze. Taking The Prow direct was straightforward (but entertaining).The path follows the line of the prow itself with only slight diversions to the left and right of the ridge itself. Only one or two sections where ...

Ben More & Stob Binnein from the South

Ben More & Stob Binnein from Inverlochlarig, with return via Inverlochlarig Glen I agree this is a preferable and more enjoyable than the direct ascent of Ben More from the North. This version of the walk returns by Inverlochlarig Glen, rather than retracing your ascent over Stob Binnein. While ...
