Beinn a Chaorainn From Moy, Loch Laggan

Last Year on my way to the Scottish 6 Days Trial I climbed Carn Liath (Creag Meagaidh) and Stob Poite Coire Ardair with the intention of taking in Creag Meagaidh as well. But as told in my report of that walk ("2 Munros above loch Laggan") I didn't manage it. This year, again on the way to...

2 Munros above Loch Lagan

Started out from the car park at Aberarder at 11.45 in beautiful sunlight which continued all day. our_route.gpx DSC00138.ARW_12.00_ARW.jpg_0.48_jpg.jpg Started off ...

Re: Return to Sciehallion after 50 years!

Thank you all for your comments. Much appreciated! :-)

Been looking at the map again. The larger scale one has both Meall nan Tamachan and Schiehallion written on it so maybe Sciehallion was known as the hill of ptarmigans as well as the one at by Killin. Does anyone know?

Return to Schiehallion after 50 years!

In 1962 I was in 6th year at school in Edinburgh. In the Easter Holidays three friends and I set off in the 1930’s Ford belonging to Graham Smith, one of the group. Boroughmuir_Ford_Graham.jpg The others were Richard Henderson Brian Renwick and me, Andrew White. I had borrowed a tent from the scouts...

Mount Keen and Balnamoon's Cave

My son in law Angus and I took bikes from the car park at Invermark as far as Glenmark House. It is an easy track although we were working hard against a head wind. We stopped at the Queen's well and enjoyed the refreshing water (which did us no harm). 1well.JPG We decided to go to Mount Keen first ...

Ben cruachan ridge

This was to be my last day on the hills after a month staying in my caravan at Tyndrum. I thought Ben Cruachan would be a fitting conclusion to my visit. I was right! Coming down the A 85 I was suddenly confronted with a great view of the days challenge. firstview.jpg After the hard slog up the stee...
