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...

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 ...

Beinn Bhalgairean

$matches[2] Having previously climbed Beinn a’Chleibh, using the network of forestry path from Corryghoil, I had been saving the similarly accessible Grahams for a similar quick trip during the short winter’s days. Once again, leaving the car at the bottom for the Corryghoil track, I cycled uphill ...
