Bynack and some More

We'd been looking at this route for a wee while, to get the 2 Tops we needed on Bynack More. Finally went for it given a reasonable forecast (passing showers if any). Just 20 Tops left for us now :D $matches[2] $matches[2] $matches[2] $matches[2] $matches[2] $matches[2] $matches[2] $matches[2] $matc...

Corrour marathon

Got up early, thinking we'd be going for a big route around Ben Alder and neighbouring Tops. When we got to Dalwhinnie though, it didn't look too promising for such a big day. Quickly made a Plan B and went for this route from Laggan instead. Great cycle in to Corrour, then ran out of steam after th...

Broad Cairn bike and hike

Cycled in from Glen Clova, thinking we'd been up here before for other hills. It wasn't until we were home again we realised this is the same route we'd taken the last time we climbed these 2 Munros :lol: That time we walked all the way though, making a bigger loop over Mayar and Dreish too. Today w...

Creag Meagaidh Tops

Initial thoughts of doing the whole circuit with all the Tops were soon made more realistic (still feel like we're building up our hill/big walk fitness again), so we left the eastern Munro and its far out Top for a separate trip. Instead, we went up through the window to reach the ridge before comi...

Beinn Sgritheall

Walking day 3 (off this week!) so we had a lie in and went for a shorter route to give our bodies a break :lol: Also, it was soooo hot today, like walking abroad! $matches[2] $matches[2] $matches[2] $matches[2] $matches[2] $matches[2] $matches[2] $matches[2] $matches[2] original_41bf7494-adfd-456e-a...

Liathach's Northern Pinnacles

A day of scrambling :D We'd done our research and figured we'd try for the grassy rake up Meall Dearg, the Top we were after. A stunning day for this one 8) :D $matches[2] $matches[2] $matches[2] $matches[2] $matches[2] $matches[2] $matches[2] $matches[2] $matches[2] $matches[2] $matches[2] $matches...

Northern Fannaichs

Mainly focusing on Munro Tops for now (our next most complete list), we went for this different grouping to pick out our missing one from this area. It wasn't until we were going up Sgurr Mor that I realised we'd both been over it already having separately linked routes from east and west. :roll: :l...

Fiarach - a quicky by Crianlarich

Another late start (we're both really tired come the weekend these days!), so we headed towards Tyndrum with a couple of options in mind. Ended up coming back along and going for this shorter walk - still building up our return to hill fitness :lol: $matches[2] $matches[2] $matches[2] $matches[2] $m...

Wandering around Wyvis

Still mindful of keeping away from the crowds, and this being a 'honey pot' hill, we set off at 8am when there was only a few cars in the car park. Up to the first Top and the Munro (in the clag), then we carried on for the extra Tops, before making a loop back down to pick up the track back to the ...

Local loop

Not quite back in our hill walking groove yet/still to find the mojo :think: Forecast wasn't great anywhere in Scotland this weekend so we stayed home again, and just went for a wee daunder today in between showers. Out past the Hilton, along Polney Loch and back past the sawmill - with a wee stop o...

Back up Birnam Hill

Missed walking this weekend (not got the mojo back yet!), so this was a solo outing while Scoob was at work, just to remind the legs I've not given up on them completely :lol: Thought about crossing the A9 on the way back after the hill, but didn't wait for long before heading back along the safe tr...

All of An Teallach

What a day! 8) We set off for the extra 3 Tops we hadn't been on yet, but Scoob also wanted to get a good video - his first time up here on a clear day :D So we ended up doing the full ridge (once we eventually found our way up there; should have done more research!), with just 1 extra Top. We were ...

Busy hill from a quiet start

First weekend of the lifted restrictions, allowing travel throughout the country... and we stayed within our local authority area anyway :lol: Really just wanting to start building up our fitness again, but we were also aware of potential parking issues and lots of people around now the floodgates a...

Riverside walk in reverse - going under again

Back on our local loop, this time going along the north side of the river first. Went under the bridge again, just to check it out from this side :lol: Then we checked out the recent beaver signs on the way back :D $matches[2] $matches[2] $matches[2] $matches[2] $matches[2] $matches[2] $matches[2] $...
