Re: Ledge Route - a Quarter Century on Ben Nevis

Some lovely shots there: you had a great day for it! I think you made a good choice in avoiding the original start to Ledge Route - I will do the same next time. There is a lot of loose stuff and it is best left for winter. Cheers jmarkb. There is another ledge route variation that avoids No. 5 gul...

Re: Ben Macdui / Cairn Gorm advice

The Walkhighlands route is a fine route for these two hills. https://www.walkhighlands.co.uk/cairngorms/macdui-cairngorm.shtml Ps. The car park may not be free parking or voluntary payment anymore. That is pretty much the route I did, except I regret not passing close enough to the deep glen where ...

Re: Seventy (!!) parking fines issued at Loch Lomond

There has been some ridiculous parking and there is no excuse for it. Even more worrying is the roadside camping which could result in legislation being introduced. For places like Rowardennan, it would be good to see some sort of transport infrastructure in place to alleviate the parking issues. Al...

Ledge Route - a Quarter Century on Ben Nevis

Friday the 24th of July 2020 was the day of my 25th time on Ben Nevis summit and a good way to mark the milestone, Ledge Route combined with a descent via Carn Mor Dearg. The route - 20km approx. $matches[2] An early start from Inverness saw me arrive at a very nearly full North Face car park at 7.1...

Re: Ben Ledi or Ben Venue

Weekdays will be quieter but if the weekend is your only option it would be best to turn up as early as you can. It's fairly safe to say Saturdays and Sundays will be the busiest, but it's hard to predict how busy car parks are going to be on any particular day. Last Monday I arrived at the small ca...

Re: Cycling Glen Shiel, which Way is easiest ?

...and who wants a malodorous or wet Munroist in their car anyway? 😄 If I get there in October as I intend, I'll be following Rockhopper's way. Each to their own I suppose. I travel that road often and have witnessed a few impatient tailbacks behind bikes. For me, the less time spent cycling on a t...

Re: Cycling Glen Shiel, which Way is easiest ?

From a cycling point of view as others have said, east to west is easier. I opted to leave the bike hidden in some trees just off the road on the other side of a layby at the western end. Drove to the eastern end and walked the ridge east to west. That way I had the better views looking to the west...

Re: Cycling Glen Shiel, which Way is easiest ?

Do it east to west. Its about 7 miles and downhill. I also recommend doing it at the start. The gradient outweighs any wind considerations, unless you are really into cycling uphill on a busy winding road. I did it downhill a few years ago and it took me around 20 mins, even though it was before 6 A...

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

Could see Ben Tee clearly from the top of Lochnagar yesterday. Could also see the snow on Ben Nevis which is a bit further - around 65 miles according to the viewfinder on the summit.
Ben Tee - the pointy far away hill in the middle, I think?
