Re: Beinn Chabhair - Mr Grumpy's Likes and Dislikes.

I had a hard day out there in blazing heat. The swamp is a perma-feature I think. As is the tiredness before you get on the hill proper.

Re: Will independance help or hinder our interests ?

I'll vote yes as it is a bigger issue than me. I can't envisage hill walking being worse off, as it would harm tourism which is a fundamental no-no. For what is worth, and only in my opinion, our future (mine, yours, your children, your children's children) in an increasingly globalized world market...

First double, An Caisteal and Beinn a'Chroin.

It was time for me to up my game and start tackling multiple summits. Being a slower mover, I got up just before 6am and was at the lay by just after 7am. Negotiating the boggy field to the underpass was the first challenge, although not before marveling at the multitude of peaks staring down on me....

Re: Bike-Hike-Bike, Ben Vorlich (Loch Lomond) from Glen King

Thanks, I think it was a great route up. The bike part - if i were doing again - I would come in from Ardlui not Butterbridge - a little steeper to start with but shorter overall. An estate worker told me the track went all the way down to Loch Lomond, at the electricity substation between Ardlui an...

Re: Ben Vane with a dog?

I can think of two parts on the path that could be a pain, but if you keep your eyes open I think both can be avoided. One about 3/4 of the way up (big 4 foot clamber between two vertical walls has an alternate to the left about 10 m earlier, so you probably walk right past it on the upward clamber ...

Ben Vane on a warm summer day in May

This steep bump in the ground had been on my radar for post-winter bagging. With the snow clinging on until not so long ago, it was time to deal with the small matter of Ben Vane. Our forecast was May sunshine between high clouds. An accurate forecast as it turned out, good walking weather in that i...
