Re: Down in the Mounth

The other complaint was a first, a guy with an electric bike on top of Carn an Tuirc. It's stupid and it's vandalism. If it was a trail bike, there would be general condemnation but because it's silent and the rider makes a contribution it's somehow acceptable. Anyway this sort of encroachment was ...

Re: Five sisters

I’ve descended that way a few times. Search the threads though for other alternatives as it’s cropped up recently.

Re: Ben Macdui / Cairn Gorm advice

Approach from the ciste car park is decent as well. There’s a decent path for a lot of the way up Creaghan Dubh. You will need to do a bit of lateral thinking or some road walking to return to the start after macdui.

Re: Cairngorm Lodge to Sugar Bowl.

Isn't the land slip between the sugar bowl and the ski centre? I'm sure I ignored it last time.

Re: Cairngorm Lodge to Sugar Bowl.

There’s a path which may or may not be marked on the map which goes up from loch morlich to the ski centre via the sugar bowl. Used it a few times

Re: The Mullardoch 12 in a day

Good report, have done various combinations but never the full loop (The Cuilin Ridge is still *the* day out in the uk though). For those interested but concerned about water theres a reliable spring just to the east of the 832m spot height south of Beinn Fhionnlaidh. The path under Carn Eighe is al...

Re: Carn a'Chlamain - Car Park

Was up there last week. Would recommend carrying on to just past Forest Lodge and taking the stalker's path up to create a nice circuit of the hill. The path zigzags nicely so never gets steep and the traverse across the top plateau is more pleasant than the standard ridge route. . You've just desc...

Re: Cycling Glen Shiel, which Way is easiest ?

If you are doing the south Glen Sheil ridge I assume one end is Cluanie Inn, the other end could be two possible places, a car park near 970140 or another car park near the site of a battlefield. I assume the first or last munro is Creag Nan Damh, from which access to either ..... Out of interest ,...

Re: Is this ben nevis I seen from the fyrish monument.

My top tip on this subject is when photographing what is a possible long line of site is to take a few non digital zooms on your camera and apply some post process contrast adjustments. You’ll be amazed at what can appear out of the haze at times.
