Walk with Monty.

Start 6.45am, raining and windy. Low viz on ridge initially, cleared up halfway round. No Snow. Lots of photos. Bit of difficulty initially navigating, good call by Monty.

CMD arête, CMD and Nevis

Decided to do this as I have done both munros separately and I think the best way is to do together. Parked at usual Nevis Campsite and followed tourist path to the split. Here, I turned left to go round to north face and walked up to the CIC hut. Got some great pics from the valley bottom and on th...

Eastern Alternative

Gutted with the forecast for the west coast today, but theres not much that can be done about it. I decided to pay a visit to the cairngorms having not been there for AGES. I had read a walk taking in Bynak More in a circular route, also including one of the Cairn Gorm tops and A'Choinneach. The wea...

Re: Ben Nevis 13 Sep

Hi Jenny, I think the arete would not be a good option if you haven't experienced exposure before. It is the way I am hoping to go up this time. Couple of things for going up: If you are driving there, the car park at the bottom of the walk most folk would use will charge you, £3.50 for the day I th...

Re: Ben Nevis 13 Sep

Hi there, I would like to go via the CMD arête, this is a route that involves exposure for a section between the two munros.

Re: Another windfarm rant

6. I have passed Whitelea windfarm (215 turbines) on many occassions and seen few turbines rotating in good wind conditions.
