Re: Assynt / Coigach - current midge status

I've been out camping a lot the last couple of weeks. There was none in perthshire, none in Oban in perfectly still weather. A few in the Ullapool area but I think they are on the way out just now. You may well not encounter any.

Go for it......

Re: Beinn Dearg

The forestry say car camping is not acceptable at Inverlael. You could camp a bit up the Glen without any issues I would imagine.

There is a campsite in Ullapool also.

All the best. :D

Re: A9

I wouldn't mind if they did pull the plug on the A9 dualling. I'd much rather see the A82 Inverness to Fort William overhauled, though not sure what can really be done with it given the terrain. I believe it's now statistically the deadliest road in Scotland. Yes indeed, the A82 is a road I use oft...

Re: Corrour - Fort William via Grey Corries or Mamores?

Thanks. If I had much better hill fitness, I would like to go to Fort William, do the Mamores traverse over a couple of days, camp somewhere in upper glen Nevis, then do the Lochaber traverse over a couple of days finishing on Ben Nevis. That would be a lot of Munros bagged in a little under a week...

Re: Corrour - Fort William via Grey Corries or Mamores?

A dodgy bit getting on to Aonach Beag which would require good route finding as well.

Re: Ben More (Mull) for Skinflints

It's £28.50 for a return for the car on the ferry from Oban to Mull which is not bad + £7.70 for each passenger. It used to be close to £90 for a car and 2 passengers. :shock: I've taken the bike from Oban a couple of times. Give yourself plenty time to park as it can be a nightmare and depend where...

Re: A9

To get the A9 completed on time and under budget they could always put a toll on it. Especially for hillwalkers who are already spending a fortune on cars, fuel, gear, beer and accommodation. Surely another £5 or £10 is insignificant, and you get a decent road to whisk you to the hills more quickly ...

Re: Scarba?

Scarba. Just to wet your appetite. I am sure that this was Scarba across the sound of Luing that we were looking at from our camp on Luing at Black Mill Bay. :) Where we camped last Saturday night. Hi gaffr - yes that's it. I was on the Slate Isles myself last week and we had a great walk up to the...

Re: Scarba?

Thanks all. Great info on the boats - my own Google searches missed a lot of that stuff.

Great also to here of other trips to Scarba and the general area.
Mal - I am glad you have convinced me I was right not to consider tackling the Corryvreckan or the Grey Dogs. :shock:

Re: FYI

I was up there around 6 weeks ago when the fence was getting built. I was only on the 2 munros but a slightly different route from the WH one. Coming off Beinn Teallach there was a gap in the new fence. I spoke to one of the guys building the deer fence, which at that time was going right up the sid...

Scarba?

I'm looking for some tips regarding the best way to get to Scarba and back. I believe the guy who used to run the boat out of Craobh Haven has retired. :( ..... and I don't fancy dealing with that wild water myself. :shock: Also if anyone has any info on the bothy on the south east corner of the isl...
