Re: Nebelhorn, Oberstdorf

Thanks Riverman, litljortindan and Alteknacker for your comments. Oberstdorf certainly is a great place to go. I would thoroughly recommend it. It even has a high altitude lake, Freibergsee. Very popular with local tourists! Thanks to Riverman, in particular, for your comments on the photographs. I ...

Re: Nebelhorn, Oberstdorf

I am impressed by your walk from Garmisch to Oberstdorf. It sounds magnificent! Yes, it is fairly easy to travel by train from Stuttgart to Oberstdorf. It was funny on our way there though and on our way back to the UK. We travelled by train through France, Germany and the Netherlands and - dare I s...

Re: A Journey Down the Outer Hebrides

I gather that it is not all that unusual in the far north-west of Scotland. The photograph attached was taken at Balnakeil Beach near Durness the day before we caught the ferry to Stornoway. It shows a stream of cows making their way across the beach to be milked, I assume, at the nearby farm. :) DS...

A Journey Down the Outer Hebrides

It seems to be an appropriate time - to me at least! - to be looking back to our summer holiday last year. We decided to go to the Outer Hebrides. Not somewhere we had previously thought of but with the then possibility of getting caught up in the more-than-likely frenzy of the post-Brexit period, w...

Nebelhorn, Oberstdorf

It has taken me rather a while to compile a report on this. However, given that it is Easter Sunday in the 'lockdown' and I have already taken my daily exercise, I thought "why not give it a go?". So here it is, my report on our holiday in August 2018 :clap: After a rather unfortunate holi...

Re: Me and you in Glendhu

I am always keen to read any blog from this stunning area but Kylesku and its surrounds in particular. We first visited Assynt in 2013, staying at a holiday house in Clachtoll. Since then I have been very keen to come back at anytime, just to cement the feeling of 'escape', I think. My wife and I di...

Re: Ceapabhal on the way into Leverburgh

Glad to see that we were not the only ones climbing up this short, but tough, mountain this year! My wife and I climbed it whilst on holiday in the Outer Hebrides in early August. In addition, I read the report written by Jaxter, who climbed it in April. The views from the top are truly out of this ...

Re: Beautiful Berneray

In case you are interested, consulting the Butterfly Conservation website has led me to believe that the name of the butterfly is the Northern Brown Argus. It is not particularly common in the Outer Hebrides - let alone Berneray - but then what is? :)

Re: The alternative Dalmally horseshoe

So, you say that the summer has gone. It doesn't look like it to me! Make the most of it! Actually, I am rather curious when you say this is the last chance to climb further Munros this year. I get the impression that many people prefer to climb Munros and any smaller peaks outside of the summer mon...

Re: Jura! Jura! Jura!

My wife and I visited Jura for a day a couple of years ago. I don't like to say this but this was on my 'bucket list' of the places I would like to go - simply because it is so far away from our present abode and it is extremely tricky to get to. Or so I thought! We - like you - found that we could ...

Re: Beautiful Berneray

I hope that you don't mind me asking but do you know the type of butterfly featured in picture 1? I am not a expert in 'butterfly-land' but this looks slightly unusual to me.

I am keen to hear your opinion.

Re: walk from Kylestrome to Glendhu bothy

My wife and I managed to do this walk a few years ago at Easter time. Truly magnificent scenery! The weather on that day was almost the same as yours, blue sunny skies for almost all of the way there and back. The most memorable thing about the walk, however, was being buzzed by a Hercules aeroplane...

Re: Take me back to the islands

Thank you for sharing these marvellous photographs with us! Almost all magnificent and they serve as a reminder of the time we were there a few short weeks ago - which was almost exactly the time you were there, travelling in the opposite direction to us! The highlight of our one-and-only visit (so ...

Re: Tete a tete with CMD arete!

What an achievement on climbing Ben Nevis the especially difficult way, i.e. climbing Carn Mor Dearg before circulating the arete up to Coire Leis! You and Kevin deserve a clap! :clap: Spare a thought for us who can only attempt the "Chickens' route", by the way. It has to be worth some co...

Re: Astounding Assynt - A Whirlwind Wander up the NW!

As ever, truly stunning! And the incredible weather must have helped to make the journey and your stay fantastic! (Most of) my family and I first visited Assynt in July/August 2013. I thought that the whole area was magnificent then... and I have still not changed my mind. I cannot think of better p...
