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...

Re: Camping with your Dog.

I just use a polycro groundsheet .. tough and only a few quid. My key bit of kit with the dogs is a sol escape bivi which is a tvek bag (very light) .. you can get similar .. in which my sleeping bag goes keeping it dry .. the tvek is breathable so doesnt get damp . That's a good idea! With two wat...

Re: Dalmunzie Hotel Car Parking

Since I didn't easily find up-to-date information on line about parking at Dalmunzie, here is an update. As of Sept 2021, the hotel still offers paid walkers' parking. Drive up toward the hotel. Very soon after entering the private grounds there is a (free, I believe) walkers' car park labelled on ...

Re: Bothies and hills during Stalking

I've phoned a couple but the information was provided in an answering machine message rather than speaking to an actual person, normally though I just choose routes that aren't going to be an issue from the WH stalking information on the route descriptions.

Ben Tirran

our_route.gpx Zena bagged her last Angus Corbett - Ben Tirran - today, it has been neglected for sometime despite being a local hill and a quick one to do! Just a repeat for me and Moss. There was space for parking by the gate at Weem and a clear track for the first part of the ascent up towards Lo...

Pressendye via Lazy Well

our_route.gpx I did Pressendye via the WalkHighlands route several years ago but on that thread someone mentioned an alternative route via Lazy Well that avoided all the road walking. Found a report describing this route and headed out, finding the area to park where there was space for a couple of...

Re: Am I experienced enough for Buachaille Etive Mor?

I 3rd going for Buchaillie Etvie Beag as an alternative, if you are having doubts then I'd say going for an alternative may be the better option and see how you get on with that.

Re: Camping with your Dog.

I have a 2 person tent, fits me and 2 collies but I'm only 5' :lol: They have dog robes to put on if they are wet to dry them off, an old camping mat to lie on, though Moss usually uses the end of my sleeping bag. Zena does get bothered by midges, do have a neem spray to use which seems to keep some...

Re: Glen Doll Overnight Conundrum

If the quarry is out on the Glen Clova road there are several forestry track entrances you could park up in. Possibly a bit further out than you were wanting though. Or there is car parking either side of Gella Bridge but that is even further out, they may have no overnight signs up now though I gue...

Re: Showers/toilets Mallaig

Had a quick look, Google reviews has a recent entry saying they are open. £1.50 for the shower, 30p for toilet. They take cards. It is on the left just as you are going into Mallaig where the big car park is :)

Càrn Daimh from Tomnavoulin

Headed up another sub-2000 with Moss and Zena today. Moss is improving since starting physio and seems to be able to do some of the smaller hills no problem and this one looked ideal. The walk is fully waymarked with yellow arrows and on the Speyside Way there are signposts as well. There were a cou...
