Re: Ben Lui & Beinn a Chleibh - 2nd attempt

Very interesting report thanks. I think the plant in 030 may be Small White Orchid (Pseudorchis) - a great find if so as it's quite rare. 051 looks like Starry Saxifrage and 105 Bugle.

Re: Favourite/ least favourite mountain

Best - out of many candidates I say Geal-Charn (Alder range). Hard to reach (I did it from Corrour), unspectacular but unpretentious, just massively present, it is what it is. Lovely ridge walk from Aonach Beag if you go that way. Beautiful alpine flowers by the stream I used for descent, it's one o...

Re: Glas Tulaichean & Carn an Righ, Spittal of Glenshee

A reasonable option I found was to bike from Dalmunzie Hotel up the track on east side of the river, leaving the bike at a suitable spot beneath GT, climbing it straight up the side. Then across to Carn an Righ, back to Loch nan Eun and down the river back to the bike. Only real problem was crossing...

Re: Far from funny on Fionnlaidh (or three loonies on Yoonly

Nice report thanks! Looking on the positive side, you did well not apparently to have too many route finding probs. despite the conditions. I did BF in clear conditions but found the initial route finding quite confusing - partly I have to say because I had McNeish's highly inadequate description wi...

Re: Braeriach - Cairn Toul Traverse

I did this a couple of years ago in fine summer conditions. I went out over Chalamain Gap, up Braeriach, round to Carn Toul, took in Devils Point and back via Lairig Ghru and Chalamain. Overall about 11 hours. A great walk, although I did find the Lairig a tough challenge at end of long day - did wo...

Re: Glen Nevis( with a heavy heart)

Well done, the hills can certainly 'move mountains' in terms of dealing with emotions. I was a bit further north on Spidean Mialach that day - unpromising start with snow storm mid-morning, but later cleared and the clear air and views were magical

Re: Sron a Choire Ghairbh - question

Many thanks for the helpful comments. I took this photo at the cairn - have to say it looks rather smaller than the one others have shown, so I have a feeling it's actually the 'East Top' so I'll have to go back to climb the Sron properly! I was aware that the route had a 'leftish' turn above the zi...

Sron a Choire Ghairbh - question

Can anyone tell me please whether Sron a Choire Ghairbh has more than one cairn on the summit ridge? I walked there this week in thick cloud (via the zigzag path from Cam Bhealach), reached a cairn and assumed it was the summit ; then later began to have doubts as the hill also has an 'East Top'.!
