Re: Sorry, a return to the Dalwhinnie question

Was last there in August a year ago. $matches[2] 4 DSC_0953.jpg Early morning so maybe some vehicles belonging to folks living there, usually parked up, were out on the road. I did see a couple of vehicles parked up on land close to the filling station. Thanks! Ended up paying for parking at the ga...

All the best. :D


Thanks, very helpful. I read a walk report where parking at the garage was possible for £3 a day. Will ask there as it’ll save around a mile each way I think. Thanks for your reply :thumbup:

Sorry, a return to the Dalwhinnie question

Hello and apologies for asking. I know it’s a hot topic and I’m sure this question will have been answered many times. Is there overnight parking available near the under-pass?

Re: Beinn Sgritheall in a campervan

Thanks to all for their advice. Arrived in Arnisdale in the camper about 8.30am, plenty of space to park. Enjoyed fantastic conditions on Beinn Sgritheall, what a stunning area.

Re: Beinn Sgritheall in a campervan

Sorry, should have said I don’t intend to park there overnight, arrive morning and leave after walk.

Beinn Sgritheall in a campervan

Hello to all. First off, I know the subject of campervans is divisive. The reason I’m asking this question is because I consider myself a considerate driver of one. I’m heading to walk Beinn Sgritheall tomorrow and unsure whether to take my smallish, but old, van. Walkhighlands says there are a coup...

Re: Glen Dessarry 3

I have done the 3 of them twice and both times clockwise. No particular reason, however ascending the gully up Sgurr na Ciche is probably easier. Thanks! I think you’re right that ascending the gully is probably easier but descending wasn’t nearly as bad as I imagined. Might be a different story in...

Anti-clockwise this time, what a fab walk. Will be back to do the other way but doubtful about adding Sgurr Mor!

Thanks! Anti-clockwise this time but I will return to do it the other way

Re: Glen Dessarry 3

wind direction should be the main factor - so you enjoy the ridge walk with wind / weather behind you, rather then battling into the elements Our group of 5 walked up glen and took gully up to foot of Sgurr na Ciche - i actually really enjoyed this bit and thought much better to be going up rather ...

Re: Glen Dessarry 3

Have a good day, KC! Thanks for your thoughts - ended up opting for anti-clockwise, mainly to enjoy the vista looking out to the west, with a promising forecast for cloud free summits. The gully was no problem in descent, actually quite enjoyable. A lovely walk which I’ll do again the other way at ...

Thanks! Walking these 3 on Saturday, prefer a steep ascent to a steep descent - any thoughts?


If you can't decide maybe take wind direction into account on Saturday. North/North westly might make clockwise slightly better?

Thanks!

Re: Glen Dessarry 3

If you use the regular WH route, there's a steep gully descent coming back down from Sgurr na Ciche to the glen, but if you reversed the route you'd have a longer, pretty steep descent down the ridge from Sgurr nan Coireachan. It was back in 2016, but as a recall the steep gully was rougher than th...

Re: Glen Dessarry 3

I did it anticlockwise as per WH route and found it a great walk. I imagine the ridge would be good either way, but I'm happy I descended from Sgurr na Ciche to the glen, not sure I would have preferred a direct ascent that way. Ascent from near Loch Arkaig to Sgurr nan Coireachan was fine, as I re...
