Now that's what I call Education Recovery Planning! - Vol 2

Week 3 back in school after Lockdown #2 and the Easter fortnight and after having broken my duck for the year a fortnight ago on Beinn Donacahin, it was time for another lunchtime high speed departure from school and a late afternoon/evening raid somewhere in the hills beyond Perth and Kinross. The ...

Re: Ben Donich with a Soupcon of Snow

That looks cracking. I was on The Brack and Cnoc Coinnich yesterday but I didn't set off from Ardgartan until almost 4 o'clock so you'd have been long gone from Donich by then. The weather clearly took a turn for the worse after your photos. The hail was bouncing off the ground as I drove into the c...

Re: April 2021: Stuchd an Lochain

What a cracking day. I'm way overdue a return up there. Did it once on a howler of a February day about 12/13 years ago and saw squat. Tried to get there again last December and made the final turn off for the dam before becoming completely overcome by snowdrifts.

Re: The benefits of bright clothing

I got a similar comment from one of the trainers delivering a mountain leadership course to myself and 4 other colleagues about 7 or 8 years ago. Stuart Johnston's mob from Aberfeldy. She was a bit of a hard task master, bordering on goose stepping, and I don't think I'd put a foot wrong all day wit...

Re: Now that's what I call Education Recovery Planning! - Vo

Hi Graeme Good to see you back in the hills and with four legged company again. At least Luna got a good introduction to some of your more "interesting" routes as this is something she will need to get used to in the months and years to come :lol: I share your hope that PRI start their 6 ...

Now that's what I call Education Recovery Planning! - Vol 1

So, the penultimate week of April and apart from a fairly short, low-key and largely forgettable stumble in powder snow up and down the undistinguished Perthshire Sub2K of Dun Coilich the day before Hogmanay and a family daunder up the slightly less undistinguished but unlisted English hill of Deadw...

Re: Another Argyll Graham - Beinn Donachain

I know. I have a date in Knoydart in July and I'll be raging if the plug gets pulled on it! :evil:

Re: Another Argyll Graham - Beinn Donachain

Interesting. Have this one pencilled in for a post-work evening outing in May (assuming things don't go pear shaped between now and then and I continue to be stuck in P&K). Looks like fine views are to be had. :D

Re: A Walk In The Ochils Recalling Memories of Glen.

I somehow managed to miss this at the time of original posting. Glad I've caught it now though. Glen was indeed a handsome boy and a fine looking specimen in the finest tradition of the great Labrador breed. It sure looks like he lived a fulsome fourteen years and like you say, if they go peacefully...

Re: Is it worth taking a chance?

Yep, I wouldn't delay. I had been keeping tabs on a few self catering properties with a view to booking a week in July and booked up last night after I started to see a lot of things filling up over the last week or so.

Re: The Milk Run

Stir craziness - there's a lot of it around! If I had done this I'd probably have got back home and then realised that I'd forgotten the milk! :crazy: Maybe this will kick start a spate of reports about walking to the shops to purchase a range of food and drink items - the Biscuit Run, the Coffee Ru...

Re: Ring of Steall - A fool falls in

Brilliant photos from a classic hillwalking circuit. That shot across to Stob Ban is one of my favourite sights in the Scottish mountains. Absolutely awe inspiring. :D
