A day of firsts - bike and hike on Carn a'Chlamain

After four weeks of spending far too much time in the office I was itching for some mountains and fresh air. As I'm not a confident driver, and the chauffeur (hubby) was studying for an exam all weekend, I called ScotRail to make a cycle reservation. Unfortunately there was no availability, so I had...

Re: Winter Munro thoughts....

Does anyone have any tips for easier winter munros, accessible from Edinburgh in a day trip? Have done a winter skills course but not much more winter experience.

Carn an Tuirc, Tolmount, Tom Buidhe and Cairn of Claise

Firstly, to explain the unimaginative title of this report. Having settled on these four munros, with Glas Maol and Creag Leacach bagged previously, I set about finding a walk report for the same route. It seems most people take the Glen Callater route, but I eventually found someone who had done th...

If you're starting from Sgurr Rhuaidhe side, which is nearest the gate, it's about a 30 minute drive, although could be faster if you don't mind risking your car on the potholes!

Thanks! The ladies who gave us a lift told us they took bikes when they did it for the road section -in retrospect a good idea! :lol:

They say it's summer... - the Strathfarrar Four

This was a much anticipated walk which had been a long time in the planning. With the exception of a day up Cairn Gorm on Glenmore Lodge's winter skills course, and a couple of wanders in the Pentlands, it had been a long 7 months since our last outing of 2014. I'd spent a long time browsing trip re...
