Base camp at Glenuaig Lodge - Walk 3

Having climbed Maoile Lunndaidh in the morning and eaten lunch at the lodge, the weather had improved considerably. We decided to head back out and climb Moruisg and Sgurr nan Ceannaichean which appeared to be an easy circuit from our fantastic spot. There is a clear path zig-zagging up the hill jus...

Base camp at Glenuaig Lodge - Walk 2

Day 2 of our stay at the lodge was very wet and extremely windy. John was almost blown off his feet taking the dog for her early morning pee and the rain was sheeting horizontally down the glen. Not a day for venturing very far. Our intended plan to climb Maoile Lunndaidh was definitely off as the r...

Base camp at Glenuaig Lodge - Walk 1

With an exam coming up and a list of remote munros remaining, we booked ourselves into Glenuaig Lodge for 4 nights to allow for some revision time after walking. The first evening was lovely, with great views of Maoile Lunndaidh from the windows. I was almost tempted to set off and climb it immediat...

Allt Broighleachan pinewood, Glen Orchy

After a couple of big days on the hill a shorter walk was required to rest the legs and get back in time for the afternoon world cup football match. The drive into Glen Orchy was lovely on another sunny day. The WH walk directions suggested the trail and the bridge leading to it were closed whereas ...

Ben Challum and its baked bogs

Another hot day forecast so another 6 am start. Looking at the route it reminded me of one of my dad's old sayings when I asked where he was going "There and back to see how far it is". We parked up in the layby on the A82 then set off down the lane to the farm and railway. It was already ...

Wonderful in the cool clouds

We decided on a 6am start due to the hot weather and it was overcast as we left the car park at Dalrigh. $matches[2] After crossing the railway we headed straight for the footbridge across the bog. It looks very dry but there were still some very wet areas to negotiate. $matches[2] Once over the bri...

What if you get up and can't get down?

After almost 3 months of inactivity due to a ski injury - a torn MCL in my left knee, plus meniscus damage, plus the news that my ACL didn't exist, even before the injury - I was keen to determine if my rehab was on track for a trip to the Alps at the end of July. My knee felt good enough and the co...

Meall na Teanga fro Clunes

Climbed Sron a Choire Ghairbh earlier in the year but didn't continue to Meall na Teanga due to a bad knee. We intended to climb it via Eas Chia-Aig falls until we noticed on here that the route was closed. We didn't fancy the hike in we had done before so drove to Clunes and took the forest road fo...
