Yes still blocked and they are saying it could take the much of the year to get all the routes cleared again.

Lendrick hill - small hill with some nice views!

our_route.gpx Second hill of the day was just a short drive along the road from Innerdouny Hill, Lendrick Hill. Parked up and went through the gate following another forestry track alongside a deer fence. Much of this route goes though forest so there isn't much in the way of views on the ascent. W...

Is it January? Innerdouny Hill

our_route.gpx Despite having a sore ankle (tendon issues) the weather is just too nice to sit at home so headed for Innerdouny Hill. As I went into the parking area there was a no parking sign on the left, fortunately I soon noticed another sign on the right side saying to park there so parked up a...

Dumglow and Dummiefarline

our_route.gpx Another Fife sub-2000 this week, this time heading up Dumglow and returning via the fort at Dummiefarline. Parked up near the entrance to the forestry track, there are a few places with room to park a car though be warned the litter was pretty bad so not the nicest start to a walk! Th...

Benarty Hill

This is a route I have done before, but for whatever reason I don't seem to have a trip report for the previous ascent though the hill has been ticked off. It has changed since I was last up with the trees felled higher up and some new tracks cutting corners to head out onto the open summit area. Ni...

Re: Bird of prey ID, St Ninian's, Fife

I'm saying kestrel, could just be the photo but pretty sure I can see the black tear below the eye and looks like a brown head. Also can't see a white eyebrow which would point towards sparrowhawk. Tail also looks more like a kestrel than a sparrowhawk to me.

Quick walk up Brimmond Hill

I'd done this one before, it was a different route on the site back then I guess the circular route has had some management to open paths, though I can imagine it gets overgrown in summer still. Aside from a couple of guys working on one of the pylons - which confused the dogs as they could hear voi...

So many false summits for a little hill!

our_route.gpx Decided against going up Deuchary Hill the last time I was there because it was so hot, returned today with the intention of doing a simple there and back walk. There were quite a few other cars in the car park but we only met a few people on the walk, and given the route some of them...

Autumn Birnam Hill, and introducing Dakota

Too nice a day today to not head somewhere, and Birnam Hill was the chosen spot. There was a space in the parking area (another freed up before we started walking) and we set off under the railway and onto the ascent. Turning off the track onto a path, the gradient steepened giving me a bit of a wor...

Re: Missing walks or is it me?

Walk Highlands website only covers walks in Scotland. The Walk Reports - Outside Scotland section of the forum will probably have some user reports from walks in those areas though - https://www.walkhighlands.co.uk/Forum/viewforum.php?f=16

Re: Easiest and safest munros in late october with children?

On that note would it be best to buy dog shoes and a snow jacket for the dog at this time of year? It's a smooth haired Hungarian Vizsla that feels the cold! You've already had some good Munro options, Mount Keen from Glen Esk does have Queens Well on route and is on a good track all the way though...
