Mount Keen with my son

We had planned to do this walk a few weeks ago so we set off from Dundee at 8.30am on a bright morning and after 70 minutes driving we parked the car at Invermark car park 15 miles from Edzell with plenty spaces left.. We picked (almost) the perfect day to do this walk and found ourselves pretty soo...

Been Chonzie in the fog

After much deliberation my son and I decided to climb Ben Chonzie on a rather murky afternoon. However as he was working until 11.30pm and driving from Ayrshire we couldn't set off early. Our walk began at 2pm and after 500yds along the track we encountered a sodden walker returning to his car and a...

Re: Is Ben Nevis too much for a newbie?

I personally think it is a huge slog for anyone who isn't fit and wouldn't recommend the climb. I would start on a more gentler Munros like Dreish or Mayar. A lot depends on the age and general fitness level of the person of course but I have had friends decide to climb this and one only.managed as ...

The Old Man of Coniston and Dow Crag walk

A wonderful walk on Saturday, starting from Walna Scar Road. Car park was very busy but as I was slightly delayed with a large volume of traffic en route. I took my car all the way to the top car park as I was keen to start walking by 10.30am. The sun shone and I took the route up past the old quarr...

Loch Lomond Walk- West Highland Way

We enjoyed a wonderful day walking from Rowardennan to Bein Glas (14 miles) - a very picturesque route through different terrain and fantastic views of Loch Lomond. The picture was taken as we were leaving Loch Lomond behind, showing Dario's post - a memorial to a keen ultra marathon runner who did ...

Walk on the West Highland Way

Had a wonderful walk on the West Highland way between Inversnaid and Inverarnan! The weather was cold but lovely and perfect for walking - a bit muddy in places but well worth it. We left in the morning and finished by 2pm. So not too bad! Great views of the Loch - definitely a walk I intend to do a...

West Highland Way

Was walking part of the west highland way last week from Drymen to Balmaha and was under the impression that conic hill was closed to all walkers due to lambing season this April - yet the notice on the gate just indicated dogs had to be kept on a lead! Has the policy changed in the past few years?

the Great Glen
