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...

There's certainly a bit of a drop from the bridge!

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...

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...
