More wet than windy

Shifting our focus to Grahams and Donalds with their Tops, we planned for a big loop to clear this area. The forecast was wrong though :roll: and it only shifted between rain, drizzle and heavier rain. So, we bailed after 1 of each hill type to leave the rest for another drier day :lol: $matches[2] ...

Steep Breac

Another 'plan B' weekend :lol: Instead of heading south for a bigger route over a cluster of Grahams and Donalds, we ended up with a late start for a day trip - too late to go for the 2 Grahams down this road, so we ended up doing just this shorter one. We followed the track up, then peeled off to t...

Plan B - local hill

Waking up to a couple of inches of snow, we figured the roads might not be clear. So, instead of heading to Balquidder for a new Graham, we just headed up our local hill. Came back over the other side, following the bike route to make a loop. $matches[2] $matches[2] $matches[2] $matches[2] Screensho...

The Heights of Caithness

Still trying to follow the best weather, we decided to head far north to see the year in. Glad we went for this bigger walk today - it was stunning! 8) :D Scoob's video :clap: $matches[2] $matches[2] $matches[2] $matches[2] $matches[2] $matches[2] $matches[2] $matches[2] $matches[2] $matches[2] $mat...

The last of the Tops

Scoob's weather-watching showed this to be the best day in our week off to go for our final 2 Munro Tops :D Initial thoughts were to use the bikes for this route (he's not keen on long walk-ins) :roll: :lol: but we ended up going for the longer walk past the farm and straight to the Tops. It was mor...

Dhorain in the rain

This was to be a rest day, as we were heading south again for our final Munro Tops tomorrow. This was just a 'leg stretch' walk since we'd travelled up here last night before checking the weather forecast again :roll: :lol: Nice to have a bag-free, lighter walk though; also, realised later that toda...

Just the South Top - Ben More Assynt

Exploring a new route, we came in from the south east. This was another freezing day, and with my legs still feeling a bit heavy from yesterday's walk, we decided to go for the Top only, leaving the Munros for another trip. That leaves us just 2 neighbouring Tops to go. :D $matches[2] $matches[2] $m...

Merry White Christmas 2021

Continuing with our 'Christmas Day round' :roll: :lol: having already had our celebrations with family. Our main aim was the outlying Top on A' Chralaig, thinking we might yet get them all finished this year if the weather plays ball. This was our first walk with the winter boots and all the gear, s...

Corrour on bikes instead of the train

We'd looked at train times, but opted for cycling in for this pair + the Top we'd missed on our first visit. The track carries on past the hydro howf, but does get a bit loose and steep a couple of times after that. We managed to get almost 6.5km in with the bikes, with a 14km walk before cycling ba...

Tough at the Top - Stob Garbh

No Munro today - we were just going for the Top we needed, thinking this would be a fairly short trip in the rain, so had a lie in. :lol: Pretty tough going in the soft snow, I think we made it harder picking our way up over the boulders, but faster coming back down. Felt a bit like the old days - p...

Just Beinn a' Chaorainn

Weather forecast was better for the Sunday this weekend, so we made this a shorter walk to get the Top we were after - just 6 left now :D We'd only done this Munro as part of the Creag Meagaidh 5 before, so this was our first time up the shoulder that goes over the South Top. $matches[2] $matches[2]...

Aonachs and Tops

The gondola was closed for maintenance so we walked all the way, figuring it was safe enough to follow the bike route up - tough going in places though! :crazy: :lol: Great day to be back in the big hills, with only the tips peaking out 8) :D $matches[2] $matches[2] $matches[2] $matches[2] $matches[...

FCP: Elie to Crail

Closing the gap we had left in the middle of the Fife Coastal Path, this leaves us with the 2 ends to cover it all. :D
