A pleasant walk in woods

The cloud was low, there was drizzle and there was no incentive to go up a hill. This is a pleasant little muscle stretcher for a couple of hours. The initial journey alongside the river tumbling down below is lovely, a nice path, lovely woodland. Once past the half way mark there is a short stretch...

The good weather spell has broken

The fantastic weather of the last few weeks was continuing and I had decided to climb Ben Lawers and then do some wild camping before choosing another peak to climb in the area. The MWIS forecast was promising with cloud lifting during the day whereas other areas I had been considering were experien...

a lovely loch side walk

This is a lovely route round the loch getting you quickly out into some remote scenery with stunning views of the surrounding mountains. We opted to do the walk in a clockwise direction, parking in the car park at the bridge and then walking along the main road. Very quickly you are away from Poolew...

A non enjoyable ascent of Mullach Clach a Blair

Never again! I was in the Upper Feshie doing some remote supervision of DofE groups and rather than retrace my steps decided that I would head up Mullach Clach a Blair Via its southern slopes and get some navigation practice in at the same time. I had spotted a track and thought I would use that as ...

Glen Feshie, Mullach Clach a Blair, Sgor Gaoith & bothy

Once again I found myself in Glen Feshie supervising some Gold DofE groups. The weather wasn't great as I followed them up Glen Feshie but it was great to see new bridge work crossing the various burns so at least my feet stayed dry. had a brief chat with the group at the bothy, dried out a bit then...

Not a soulbut many a mountain hare

A nice easy walk to fill a day. No problems route finding as there is a Land Rover track the entire way round. Fabulous views in all directions. Lots of maintain hares skipping across the plateau.

A long time in climbing

After a pedal up Glen Tilt, and stupidly adding in Glen Banvie too, I couldn't face getting back on my bike so decided that since it was a) dry, b) less cloudy c) not under ice or snow, as is always the case when o have considerd Sciehallion, it was time to give it a go. A fantastic path takes you t...

A walk in the clouds and no view!

A great walk, stags roaring away in the glens, mountain hares, loads of grouse but cloud, cloud and more cloud from about 800 metres so no view! Stunning and given it wasn't windy or raining can I really complain!!
