First cloud inversion on Narnain and Ime

Started and finished at the campsite and walked round to Succoth to then follow the route from here on WH. Started off fairly miserable and cloudy then once I broke out through the cloud I experienced my first cloud inversion. Then on the descent to the bealach between the 2 Munro's it was back unde...

Not the WHW

I found this walk on viewranger and I think it was by Ronald Turnbull. I liked the look of it and thought it was within my capabilities whereas the full ring of Steall would be too much for my lack of fitness. Lovely day and only saw a couple of walkers tackling the ring anti clockwise, and a couple...

Beinn Damh

Followed the standard route described here on WH until reaching the bealach on the return where, instead of taking the decent path I first carried on along to Sgurr na Bana-Mhoraire, then returned to the bealach to return down the same path used for ascent.The weather was overcast but managed some v...

Eastern 2 of South Sheil ridge

My intention was to walk the eastern 4 Munro's but the weather didn't play ball and when a freezing downpour hit me just before the summit of Druim Shionnach I found I'd lost my gloves and couldn't feel my hands, so that, added to the fact there were no views made up my mind to call it quits and hea...

Meall a'Ghiubhais

Standart route from Loch Maree car park, through the underpass to walk the 'mountain trail'. Weather was Scottish in that it fluctuated between drizzle and sunshine, and light breeze to gales. Lovely mix of landscapes from ancient forest to lunar lochs and views of the beautiful Loch Maree backed by...

Re: Liathach, what a mountain.

It's a bass stud isn't it :( I was also heading up that way around the same time, but sadly not now and I've just tortured myself by reading your report and looking at those epic tantalising photos as Liathach was hopefully top of my list. Just have to keep reminding myself that the hills will still...

Stob Dubh ( corbett )

Straightforward following of the WH route. Really struggled with fatigue again :thumbdown: This carried on after getting home and was worsening which prompted me to see the quack. An under active thyroid was diagnosed as the culprit and after steadily increasing the dose until they were happy I now,...

Sgurr Eilde Mor

I was originally going to walk the WH route for Binnien Mor and Na Gruagaichean ,but once again I felt knackered so when I arrived at the turn off for Sgor Eilde Beag's ridge I made the decision to just carry on around the left of the Lochan until eventually reaching the west ridge of SEM. This ridg...

Sgurr a'Mhaim

I wasn't planning to do any walking today due to feeling fatigued for some reason, but ended up being a spur of the moment decision (or should it be Sgurr of the moment). I'd decided that I was going to indulge in a 'dirty' Maccies breakfast and then probably just dawdle around Fort William, but aft...

Creise and Meall a'Bhuiridh

Just the standard route from, and back to, the ski centre. Weather was cloudy with the odd drizzly moments but I managed to get some views from both summits, which was very lucky (and brief) on Criese because all others I spoke to didn't. Don't know why but I felt like it was just bagging today

3 of S Shiel ridge

Parked at the Eas-nan-Arm bridge layby and climbed to the summit of Creag nan Damh via its NE ridge. Then followed the standard SSR path eastward, bypassing the top of Sgurr Beag (this time) to reach the summit of Sgurr an Lochain with dramatic views down the craggy east face down to the actual loch...

Beinn an Eoin

This is another walk which most definitely proves that size doesn't matter when it comes to hills in Scotland, as the day ranks high in my favorites, giving spectacular views all round and that dreamy feeling you get in Assynt with a real sense of remoteness, especially given that I didn't see a sou...

Bleaklow

Started at Torside reservoir car park, along the track to branch off up Torside Clough to reach the plateau, visiting Wain Stones, Bleaklow head and the crash site of the flying fortress. Descended via Near Black Clough down to the track , then returning along the edges of Woodhead and Torside reser...

Welsh Matterhorn

Beautiful weather for time of year. Standard route from Croesor over the Welsh Matterhorn :wink: , across to Molewyn Mawr and then Molewyn Bach descending down to the road and completing the loop back to the carpark.
