Re: Beinn Chabhair dogs

If the WH recommended route is no good for the dogs; there is an alternative route up this mountain from Derrydarroch, which I took two years ago. As far as I remember, that did not involve climbing across any fences or stiles. Good luck.

Re: Horrible path

I can see what the original poster is saying. But what happened to our sense of adventure? Does every walk have to be straightforward and without problems to overcome? Don't you feel better at the end of the day when you did well on a difficult route? I biked in for this mountain, and yes, the path ...

Re: Ben Avon on foot the whole way

I didn't come back the same way - I next went to Beinn a'Bhuird. Navigation around that summit a bit of a challenge on that day, but I got there in the end. A very enjoyable, leisurely, circular walk.

Re: Ben Avon on foot the whole way

No dashing up to it and back - I did have a leisurely picnic lunch sitting at the foot of the tor for about an hour! :D

(I just didn't want to break an ankle, since it was a solo walk, so no climbing up those rocks for me).

Re: Ben Avon on foot the whole way

I never climbed those boulders either, and still ticked the hill off my list OK.

I don't climb summit cairns or trip points either, on other hills, so there!

Re: Parking in Dalwhinnie

Because you're now no longer allowed to park near the railway crossing, I parked in the street that heads directly towards the railway station building (and which doesn't seem to have a name on google maps). I parked on the verge, against a high fence there, and there were other cars doing the same....

Great report, thank you. (1400m up, are you sure?)

Re: Fantastic day near Loch Laggan

Great report, and lovely area. Well done for finding the bikes again in low light. I once had trouble finding mine again in that spot - I had to climb up the hill 20m and look for the bike through the binoculars till I spotted it!

Great report with fantastic pictures. Walk just in normal boots? Or with crampons / winter equipment? Thanks.

Re: Inveruglas car park - conditions May 2017

No I think they are right. The world is full of stupid people who won't take their rubbish home if there's no room for it. Given the part of the country it doesn't surprise me one bit and education will probably not help for the majority. £4 buys you the privilege of taking your rubbish home with y...

Inveruglas car park - conditions May 2017

My email to the National Park, 7 May: Dear National Park staff, I visited Inveruglas car park yesterday, 6 May, to go hillwalking. I arrived at 7.30am. The bins were overflowing with rubbish; the toilets were closed; the pay-and-display wouldn't take the new pound coins, and the little ticket that i...

Re: Ben More & Stob Binnien Glen Dochart

Fantastic video!! Thanks for posting. (I was there in August, when it was a bit warmer.)

Looks funny, that dusting of snow just on the last bit before the summits.

Re: Pleasant stroll through Glenmore Forest to Bynack More!

Visited the loch many times but never swam in it for the above reason. As a local, I've never actually spoken to anyone that can confirm if it's true or not.

Was it deep?[/quote][/quote]

I swam to where the submerged tree trunk was, and there it was deep; I couldn't reach the bottom any more.
