Miles of views from Mile Hill

$matches[2] The route taken. I took the "classic" route in from the North. Parking at the old gatehouse to Balintore castle. On a quick side note does anyone else here follow the restoration blog for that? It really is some epic reading! Anyway, I walked along the track past the woods and...

Chilly on Corwharn

Having looked at the weather for the weekend a few of the planned walking party bowed out as it wasnt looking good enough to do any hills that would show off Scotland to its best. However a long time walking pall and I decided we would head out anyway and do one of the smaller hills in Angus (still ...

Linn of Quoich

I was wondering if anyone knew the status of the Linn of Quoich car park and bridge situation there? Planning a wee trip up that way tomorrow and reading some walk reports, one user mentioned that the car park was closed and the bridge was out although there were people working on it. I was wonderin...

Monamenach with mates

Much to my surprise a few of my friends from down south were still up the road last weekend and had enquired about going out for a wee walk somewhere pretty. I suggested a couple of corbetts to them as I felt the munro tops would be a bit miserable as it was forecast to be pretty windy. I also perha...

Ben Rinnes

Well we werent really breaking any new exciting ground with this walk but it was still a lovely, albeit busy, walk up a great view point for all of Moray. After striking camp and having breakfast in the morning we packed the car up and headed for the car park at the base of Ben Rinnes. We joined the...

Halt for Hill of Foundland

Having booked in with relatives up north for a visit in the new year I started looking at places to stop off on the way, interesting places that may have a trig point or a red balloon on the walk highlands website, or even better both! Also had to be close to the chosen driving route and not too lon...

Re: Best way to gain back hill fitness?

Thank you all for your kind comments and suggestions. I have started incorporating a slightly more hilly round on my dog walk and I intend to try and walk this as fast possible as much as possible. The stair running is a great idea, I might try that out although I am sure the dogs will do their leve...

Best way to gain back hill fitness?

So as some of you may have seen in other threads I have basically not been out as much as I would have liked to have been the last year and I have managed to gain a considerable amount of weight and lose basically all of my hill fitness. :( I still have the mental grit to get to the top of a hill bu...

Re: Plans for 2020

Gain back some hill fitness and commit to more days spent outside, trying not to let uni work overtake my entire life, 4th year of an engineering degree can do that to you it seems!. Specific goals: 1. Finish the Angus hills off! 2. Explore some new areas, even if its just small hills, I don't reall...

Re: Plans for 2019

Bumping this to see how everyone faired with their plans for the last year. I managed to tick of quite a few of the small hills in Moray, and NONE of the outstanding hills in Angus. Work and uni kept me very busy this year it would seem, and now my hill fitness is basically gone, which is very frust...
