Re: Loch Mullardoch Munros V South Glen Shiel Ridge

I just looked at my notes. The South Glen Sheil ridge took me 8.5 hours from the Claunie Inn to the road at the 1719 battle site. It started raining so I managed to hitch back to the Inn. Loch Mulladoch north side Munros took me 8 hours from the hotel to the river crossing at the other end. But I di...

Re: The Alps!

Two easy 4000ers that can be done from the valley floor without the need to stay in huts (aren't cable cars great?) are the Briethorn from Zermatt and the Allalinhorn from Saas Fe. Zermatt is a fantastic place with lots of fantastic walking if you don't want to venture too high. If you are going to ...

Re: Mont Blanc du Tacul by the Black pyramid

Excellent report and great photos. Only been there once (2013) and was kept off the 4000ers by poor weather. Did manage to do the Cosmiques Arete though. We were also planning the Tacul/Maudit traverse to Mont Blanc so looked at the ascent of Tacul in some detail though the left of the triangle pass...

Didn't get to Scotland this year so my highlight was a trip to Iceland.

25 years ago today

After having decided I was going to attempt the amazing Munros, I set off and reached my first summit (Carn Mor Dearg) on this day (6th June) exactly 25 years ago. o-) Doesn't time fly! 11 years, 2 months and 19 days later I stood atop my 285th and last Munro (Tom na Gruagaich) on Ben Alligin. I hop...

Re: Ladhar Bheinn

My notes from way back say it took us exactly 4 hours. We were only doing the walk in to pitch tent so we weren't in any kind of hurry. After a couple of days we walked back out after having done Luinne Bheinn in the morning. The walk out only took just under 3 1/2 hours.

Re: Local knowledge please

Its a while since I was there but always used to like the Ferry Boat Inn in Ullapool. Plenty of choice of accommodation in Ullapool from camping, to hotels. Also you have the Dearg range, An Teallach, Inver Pollaidh and Assynt within driving distance. After my final Munro (Ben Alligin) we drove up t...

Re: Uncompleatable hills?

I only managed the Inn Pinn on my third attempt. Technically it was my second attempt as on my first attempt, when I "turned back" I was still in the Sligachan Hotel Bar at the time. The best time to turn back I think. I had a guide scheduled but the weather was so bad that we abandoned be...

Re: Munro compleatist??

If you click on such a person's name their profile will come up. It will tell you the number of Munro rounds they have completed. EG. A Munro Completist [Sorry! I can't bring myself to spell it with an "a"] who has 84 Munros listed will have completed one or more rounds. The 84 Munros wil...

Re: Beinn Alligin

Just to second the statement - its a great day. I did it on a lovely day and had saved it as my last Munro with a couple of friends along. We did it anti-clockwise and my friends 9 year old son managed it ok with a little help on the steep bits.

Re: How did you get on in 2016?

No visits to Scotland and no hills in 2016. :-( The year was mainly about my new road bike. I managed just under 5000kms in the year. Would like to get the bike to a couple of famous passes in 2017. Honister and Bealach na Ba come to mind. There was of course my trip to Lofoten in Norway which ticke...
