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...

Sgurr nan Conbhairean and friends in the heat

$matches[2] Set off (relatively early from Roy Bridge campsite, having a gain used the pods for an overnight stay. As started ascending could feel early on that it was going to be a scorcher. Luckily we were on the summit of Carn Ghluasaid before thing got too toasty. The ascent of Sgurr nan Conbha...

South Glen Shiel ridge part 1

P1010357 (Medium).JPG Parked at the layby to the East of Cluanie Inn. Initially a pleasant ascent along the estate road then cut off up to the ridge. Soon we were on the ridge, but unfortunately, also in the mist and fog. So denied of any view for the pretty much the entire walk. Progress was slow ...

The Cairnwell Munros-3 before lunch.

$matches[2] I hadn't heard great things about these hills, other than they were pretty easy with the high start. However, there are not too many opportunities to tick off 3 Munros in under 5 hours, So I made an early rise and was leaving the car park at the ski centre by 7am. Following the loose tr...

Beinn Fhionnlaidh from Glen Creran

$matches[2] Not too much to be said about this one! Had been planning to the Cairngorms and finally do the easy 3 at the Carinwell. The evening forecast changed indicated for once that the West Coast would have the best of the weather. Short of going to Mull or Ardnamurchan, you don't get much furt...

Beinn Mhanach

Parked in entrance to forestry track on side of A82, rather than the rather tight spaces, right by the side of the road (looked like a good way to lose a wing mirror!). I was on my bike by 6am, with the temperature barely above 3 degrees. Initial going was pretty fast, then became harder going as I ...
