Meall Mor, a different view of Glencoe

$matches[2] I had made a mental note of this hill when climbing the Pap on the other side of the Glen a few weeks back. My eyes had initially been drawn to it's more shapely neighbouring Graham, Sgorr a Choise, which looks like a wonderful even among the larger peaks However, this one had a forestr...

Thick cloud and fog the whole way, so no photos. Easy enough walk with a track most of the way until the last bit of ascent until the ridge. Bitterly cold on the ridge, with a real wind chill.

Pap of Glencoe

$matches[2] This is a marvelous wee hill. Just challenging enough to feel a like a good walk on a short winters day and with great views over the big beasts of Glencoe and the Mamores. I parked at the forestry car park (the start point by the forestry track is now marked as 'no parking'). After a l...

Gairich

$matches[2] Despite having spent a good part of my childhood and adult life in the West Highlands (at one point I could see the Ballachulish horse shoe from my bedroom window), I had never ventured down the single track Kinloch Hourn road, which breaks off from the A87 at Loch Garry. As a result th...

Beinn Udlaidh and Beinn Bhreac-liath

$matches[2] I had my eye on this one for a while, probably could have picked a better day weatherwise, but was still a good day out. I rendezvoused with the other 2 at the start point and opted to do the route clockwise. I suspect this was a good choice, both ends of the walk are pretty steep, but ...

Ben Vrackie

Ben Vrackie 08102020.gpx A special day as it was my first proper trip to the hills with Lewis, who thoroughly enjoyed it! We had scoped Ben Vrackie on a family walk around Pitlochry on the previous day. So we had decided to get up early and give it a go, while the girls had a long lie in. We were o...

Ben MacDui and Cairngorm

It was a first time in a long time, that it had taken me until the end of August to get a Munro done, but since it was already late in the year I thought it had better be an interesting tick on the list. After a foray to Corbett country in Perthshire, these 4000 footers seemed like a good combinatio...

Meall nan Subh

$matches[2] It was to be the first non solo walk of they year for me. The original plan had to be to park at Linn of Dee and cycle in to climb the Devil's Point, Later this was revised to Derry Cairngorm to allow for everyone's lack of hill fitness. After it became apparent that there was a good ch...

Re: Beinn a'Bhuiridh

Thought you might be interested in this. That's the main quarry with subsidiary ones above. In the top left you can see your stone structure and the marks left by, presumably, some system of rails going down the steep hillside for the winding system. Shot from the slopes of Beinn Eunaich. I've got ...

Re: Beinn a'Bhuiridh

I live just down the road from this hill, of which I am very fond. It's a good afternoon outing. The ruined structure that you picture was indeed part of the quarrying, housing a winding mechanism - I presume to lower materials from the higher quarries down to where it could be carried out on the r...

Beinn a'Bhuiridh

$matches[2] After a long lay off, this was the first chance to get out in the hills since Beinn Mhic-Mhonaidh in February. I had had an eye on this one for a while and it being within 45 minutes from the house was a serious upside. The forecast was warm with possible thunderstorms. I decided to tak...

Abandoned attempt at A' Chrois

A Chrois ABANDONED 04032020.gpx A decent jaunt from the car park in Arrochar. The old path on the map wasn't in great shape after a the extended period of wet weather. As we passed above the slow line, going was slow in the deep soft snow (snow shoes might have been a good option if either of us ow...

First walk/cycle of 2020-Beinn MhicMhonaidh from Glen Orchy.

$matches[2] A break in the weather was all the encouragement I need to plan one of my traditional cycle/walks less than an hour from the house. I had my eye on Mhic Mhonaidh for a while, but had held off due to the usual access route through the forest having been closed for an extended period. Pac...

South Glen Shiel ridge part 2

$matches[2] This was a day of 2 contrasting halves, or rather contrasting 3 quarters and 1 quarter. A thoroughly enjoyable ascent and walk along the ridge, ending the day with a soul sucking descent We started the day depositing one car at the Glen Shiel battle site, then taking the second car to s...

Loch Lochy Munros

$matches[2] After the high winds of Saturday and night spent wondering whether we were going to get blown away at the Roy Bridge campsite, we were relieved to find that Sunday was a far more promising looking day. After parking at the farm, we shared the initial track with a mountain bike event, wh...
