Re: Navigating the White Mounth Munros circuit

I did this in early September in v poor visibility. After Lochnagar you follow the path but take care to branch off at the right times so as not to miss the summits. You shouldn't go far wrong following the WH description but the summit paths are as follows: For the 2nd summit (Carn a'Choire Bhoidhe...

Re: Descent from Sgurr na Banachdich via Sgurr nan Gobhar

The ridge between Banachdich and Sgurr nan Gobhar is pretty easy. I don't really relish exposure and found it fine and don't remember the scrambling being difficult. It is quite a nice route if you want some manageable scrambling as you can walk up and down Banachdich the usual way with your hands i...

Re: Sun on the Crianlarich 7

Thankfully Rufus you are a quicker walker than report writer :lol: :lol: :lol: That really was some going, I've been back to do Beinn Tulaichean & Cruach Ardrain from Inverlochlarig and the climb up BT felt as steep as Ben More but without a path. I came off the bealach between the two hills te...

Re: Sun on the Crianlarich 7

Good effort to do all of them in one route ! :clap: :clap: :clap: The weather forecast motivated you well to reduce your 3 planned days in to one big day to avoid the oncoming rain and all the wetness :lol: :clap: :lol: Also good experience for you - 2.5 l of drink is definitely not enough, especia...

Sun on the Crianlarich 7

Well, having booked a day off work some time ago, the plan was to enjoy a leisurely weekend in the hills above Crianlarich... I had 3 days, one tent and 7 Munros to get my teeth into... what could possible go wrong? Hmm, the weather for a start. As I watched the forecast like a hawk during the week,...

Re: Ben More, Stob Binneien, Clag and Midgies

Hi Rufus Smalls - glad you got all 7 done on the day, the weather would have been rubbish on the Saturday - how long did it take you? I found the drop down from the bealach really hard going, harder than the climb up Ben More. I saw you behind me and then noticed you starting to contour round the h...

Re: Ben More, Stob Binneien, Clag and Midgies

Hi Gordie, nice to meet you on Friday. I recognise myself in that picture, slogging up that awful trudge up Ben More... head down and plough on past the midgies... :lol: Hope you had a good walk despite the clag. Coming down from the bealach was like walking down a sponge, wasn't it? It's probably n...
