Re: Munro Sixty Six

My dad is suffering from the same thing - Lots of random tops have been promoted since he started bagging, so he has a splattering of hills to do all over :lol: There is a great route up Sgreamhach from the top of the Larig Eilde called Sron na laraig or something similar - cracking wee scramble, w...

Re: Munros Fifty to Fifty Three

We had a tent like that. It was pretty soon relegated to the kids for playing in the garden. It also looks like the tent SimonP took on his infamous walk in the Lakes, aged 15 1/2 http://www.scottishhills.com/html/modules.php?name=Trip_Report&topicid=12564 "God Looks After Fools and Drunks...

Re: Munros Fifty to Fifty Three

Chris I'm really enjoying your reports and old photos, keep them coming pal :clap: Thanks Beaner and sorry for the long delayed response! Unless I start writing up old trips from abroad (and I've got all sorts of stuff from the Alps, Andes, Iceland, Kashmir and Morocco), I've run out of reports and...

Re: Munros Fourteen to Sixteen

Always good to read your older reports. Have you kept a diary from back then Good to see the photos as well. No goretex or wicking on show back then :) Thanks Coop; I should have replied a bit earlier, I think! Glad that you enjoyed reading these ancient memories; you're right and I have always kep...

Re: Munros One and Two

yup - can well remember those external frames rucksacks with bits that dug into your back.....as well as gaiters with tie up laces (no velcro then), waterproofs that weighed a ton and didn't breathe at all....etc etc....and 35mm film :lol: :wink: - but still enjoyable nonetheless - great to have th...

Re: Munro Two Hundred and Sixteen

I might just beat you then; I climbed my first in 1981!


Yup MrsSanta,
But, like I say to my kids, it's not a race! Mainly, I'm enjoying the journey... Hope that you are too!

Re: Lochnagar, the White Mounth, a wild camp and Stuic scram

Hi Alex, Taken me a while to stumble across this but well done on an excellent and very meaty first report. Not that many tend to quote Byron but, when the alternative is probably Brian of Balmoral, it was a good call! Your trip looked like an excellent couple of days wandering over the plateau eve...

Re: Munro Two Hundred and Sixteen

That looks great! You're fair cracking through the Munros there! Thanks MrsSanta! I've been ticking off Munros since 1975 so I'm not sure that, overall, I'm cracking through them very fast on average! I'm sort of aiming to get them all done by 2025ish so, overall, it'll take me around 50 years. The...

Re: Munro Two Hundred and Eight

Nice - looks like a pretty quiet approach! Were the stream crossings easy going or were you thigh deep? Evening Alex, It was quiet - I didn't see a sould from beginning to end - and, given the amount of water coming off the northern slopes of Beinn Ghlas, thigh deep wading would certainly have been...

Re: Stalking In Glen Lyon

Hi Chris. I have emailed the estate more than once with no reply. It appears they have little interest in discussing it apart from when bullying people on the ground. I would suggest you email the access officer who has at least replied, but maybe P&K need pressed a bit more on these issues reg...

Re: Stalking In Glen Lyon

Complaining might work over several years but, given a discussion on this site which mentioned the possible manipulation of local parking regulation by the estate in concert with the local authority, I suspect that organising large numbers of people to go for a walk (and threatening to repeat the e...

Re: Stalking In Glen Lyon

Not being silly here but it sounds like it would be in order for someone - perhaps someone on this site - to organise several large groups of people to climb these hills using a variety of routes at some time in September. I seem to remember that something similar happened in 1932 on Kinder Scout a...

Munro Two Hundred and Sixteen

Thursday, 26th. August: I was camped at about 800 metres on the flat, grassy col to the north of Creag Mhor under wonderfully clear skies and, needing to be back in southern England before the end of the day, an early start was needed. I was, therefore, away by 6.30.am. and, shouldering a relatively...

Munros Two Hundred and Fourteen and Fifteen

Wednesday, 25th. August: I had completed a four day circuit of lower Glen Lyon back in 2007 but had still to visit Loch Lyon and the head of the glen - and, with my good friend Chalky heading up to Fisherfield after a terrific walk on the previous day, this was my opportunity. A slow departure from ...

Munros Two Hundred and Nine to Thirteen

Tuesday, 24th. August: As we have done a few times now, Chalky and I met and stayed at the excellent Ben More Lodge in Crianlarich and, after a solid breakfast, we were off to climb what are sometimes referred to as "The Crianlarich Five"... but from the south. Low mist (and, to be honest,...
