A'Chaileach and Carn Sgulain

Munros 142 and 143. A chilly cold day as we set off from Glen Banchor, but bright enough. The track soon became boggy, but once we carefully crossed the burn and up the slopes past the wee bothy was a straightforward and quick walk up A'Chaileach. The rain came in though and with a strong wind it wa...

Creag Meagaidh in the heat with a swim

It had been scorching for a couple of weeks and forecatst was marginally cooler for the Saturday. We decided to head for Creag Meagaidh and attempt these 3. Amazingly Calum managed to drag himself out of bed to join us, and we arrived at the car park just after 10 having had a quiet run up the A9. I...

Four sisters

Perfect opportunity to do this one while on holiday in Plockton with two cars.
It was a windy and occasionally showery day when we set off, but became clearer as we reached the end of the ridge. A really great walk, slightly scarily windy along the ridge. We didn't bother with the fifth sister.

Beinn a Bheithir

A bit late writing up so I can't remember too many details! Looking at the forecast for this day, I just had to get out on the hills. My companion from 2 great sunny Wednesdays in Glencoe last summer (once we were allowed) was available again so off we went to tackle another two. I felt slightly ner...

Calum up his hill

Dragged the teenager out of bed to do his own hill - Ben Challum means Calum's hill. Bribery of cakes and a promise of a chippy eventually did the trick. We hardly saw anyone all day,, although the weather was great. It seemed a steep one as it was the first hill walk this year, but great views over...

Winter walk in April - Cairn Bannoch

A wee break as soon as we were allowed to travel, staying at the Boat Inn in Aboyne. A chilly week for the end of APril, but that didn't stop us. As we set off from SPittal of Loch Muick car park it started snowing. We headed along Loch Muick past the boathouse on the North side, and eventually past...

Ben Oss and Beinn Dubhcraig

My last munro in Stirlingshire. After an aborted attempt to get tot he bottom of Glen Etive (road was closed and would have added 3 miles each way to intended walk), Neil and I backtracked to Tyndrum to do these. We had done Ben Oss before (although neither of us could remember a thing about it!) bu...

Beinn A'Chroin the wrong way

With Neil and Duncan. Started from inverlochlarig up the glen from Balquidder. About a hour along the track then up pathless and very steep slopes. Hard going in the showers. The sun came out now and again but unfortunately it was peeing down at the top and blowing a gale so we didn't stop. No views...

Another Drumochter outing

With Neil, Duncan and Calum.

A little longer than we expected but 2 more in the bag. Not particularly interesting hills but it was clear enough for good views over to Ben Alder and across the Cairngorms.

Bidean nan Bian

Oh what a cracker of a day. Another Wednesday off, and with Duncan as my walking partner, and a good forecast, it was time to tackle Glencoe again. After last week's good trip to Buachaille Etive Beag, we were up for something bigger, so Bidean nan Bian it was. After dragging Duncan out of bed event...

A sweaty wee shepherd

Wednesday off, Duncan at home at a loose end, and weather forecast hot and sunny. Three good reasons for a good walk. It was forecast to be very hot, so Buachaille Etive Beag - not too far away and not to big a climb - seemed a good option. It was quite busy with tourists in Glen Coe as we set off, ...

First post lockdown munro

While spending a week at a cottage on Loch Morar, we (Neil, Duncan, Calum and I) decided to tackle one of the munroes in Glenfinnan. Both would have taken at least 9 hours and given that this was the first proper hillwalk of the year because of covid19 that would have been pushing it. It was cloudy ...

Glen Affric wild camp

Last week of Calum's summer holidays, with Duncan away grouse beating and Neil working, it was just the two of us. Monday night and Tuesday looked like reasonable weather for a wild camp and hillwalk. Monday morning was considerable colder that recently with condensation on the windows for the first...
