Re: Norway's Highest Mountain - the Giant that is Galdhopigg

Thanks Pointless Paradise, great to hear you enjoyed the report! I didn't know that about glaciers, re being 'wet' or not; it was my first and only experience on one , on foot, and it was quite thrilling (in amongst being yanked this way and that :) ) Yes £25 seemed very cheap especially given Norwa...

Re: Norway's Highest Mountain - the Giant that is Galdhopigg

Thanks Mal, yes you've hit the nail on the head, the time factor was just too tight for us, me in particular. It added unnecessary stress to the whole day :( That plus having some snow/ice gear would have made it a much more enjoyable experience. Your own day up there sounds superb and I agree, it i...

Re: Lapping up the views above beautiful Corrour

Great photos! - when we went to Beinn na Lap the weather was awful, but it was worth it to see Corrour and Loch Ossian. And we loved the cafe! Replying to your reply to me re Meall Glas -,you are right about the track to Sgiath Chuil across the moors from the SE. It is a great approach to the hill....

Re: Lapping up the views above beautiful Corrour

Anne, Another lovely report with photos to match. This walk really appeals to me with the scenic train journey included. What's not to like about it. I'm on a Gluten Free diet and some cakes tend to be a bit dry at times and usually are about double the price of normal ones. I'm certainly not the M...

Re: Lapping up the views above beautiful Corrour

Love the report and photos, in fact I love all wilderness and the train journey to get there is in itself a joy too. On one occasion my wife and I took the train from Tyndrum, got off at Spean Bridge and took a leisurely walk through the Lairig Leachach back to Corrour. In fact we took it a bit too...

Lapping up the views above beautiful Corrour

It was a photo of Beinn na Lap which first really stirred my interest in hillwalking thirty years ago( where did the time go? :roll: ) It was in one of the SMC guidebooks, the mountain covered in snow, glowing softly pink in the rosy light of dusk. It looked so unspoiled and lovely and benign – and ...

Re: Cotswold Outdoor report of the month winners - September

Great report by mountainlove, always enjoy her adventures!
Thank you once again Paul...my good winter hat blew off in a gale recently so the voucher will come in very handy for a replacement - actually it couldn't have been THAT good if it got whipped off so easily :roll:

Re: It's the little ones that catch you out!

Heat, midges, the extra effort of pathless terrain and the added stress of responsibility - no wonder you felt exhausted (and ended up not well :( :( Always enjoy reading your reports - really felt for you on this one. Nice to see young folk out on the hill too but yes , they can be tricky to manage!
