One Buchaille peak with kids.

Ascended via usual route up gully, visited one peak and descended same way as plenty for kids. Cracking day, gully is a pig to descend though!

Rewarded for ignoring the forecast on Bla Bheinn

$matches[2] We had sat at the campsite in Broadford the night before, nursing our beers and reading over half a dozen different forecasts. One read something along the lines of "No visibility, Cloud and rain. Possible excellent visibility on coastal hills". This slightly ambiguous apprais...

Re: Midge report

They were biting in Argyll for sure at the weekend. It was an especially sheltered damps spot though.

Heaval

Heaval 150422.gpx We decided to take the slightly easier option of ascending this from the car park behind the quarry. We deviated on the ascent from the WH gpx, following what initially appeared to be more clearly trodden path. This took us round the West flank of the hill before cutting up to the...

Beinn Fhionnlaidh revisited


Beinn Fhionnlaidh040422.gpx Open full screen  NB: Walkhighlands is not responsible for the accuracy of gpx files in users posts



Had been planning to do Sguilard, but foul weather made us decide to do Fhionnlaidh (2nd time for me) and save Sguilaird for good weather. Not as bad as initial forecast might have suggested, but windy on the ridge.

Re: Cruach Lusach (possibly) and Bacoch’s seat (I think)

Yes, that's Bacoch's Seat. I took several attempts to find it, having once stood directly above it without realising! :lol: Concur with your thoughts. Hard and hard to imagine why it faces that way? Perhaps, in those days, more folk lived up on high, therefore might give views of possible approachi...

Cruach Lusach (possibly) and Bacoch’s seat (I think)

Cruach Lusach 240032022.gpx NB. My GPS lost signal at various points on the hill, but majority of the route is correct. I'd had a notion to explore this hill for a while, with it's proximity meaning it was an option between dropping the kids off at school and picking them up again. Following the Ac...

An Socath

$matches[2] An enjoyable wee day out instead of the Covid cancelled Skye trip. Got there for 8am after a misty drive through Perthshire. Good weather, mild temperatures and shouting grouse for pretty much the whole walk. No unavoidable snow, but a good bit still visible on higher peaks of MacDui et...

Meall Bhuidhe

$matches[2] This was one of these little hills I keep on the back burner for a short day in winter. Not too far away and what should be a quick, straight forward excursion. We parked at the car park at the top of Glen Ogle, which was quiet at this time of day. Following the track that services the ...

Black Craig from St Fillans

$matches[2] This was a walk to file under 'using winter as an excuse to explore smaller hills you probably wouldn't bother with in summer'. The drive through Perthshire, past Loch Earn and Crieff has some very attractive hills that don't seem to really register in any of the baggers lists. We had p...

Beinn na Gainimh

$matches[2] Arrived at the starting point after a quick re-jig of the route as the last bit was marked as 'closed due to snow' (not convinced). Setting off in thick fog and freezing temperatures, once above the temperature inversion were soon rewarded with great views of across to Schiehallion and ...

Re: Wet feet - boots ok

I had a similar problem. A friend suggested rinsing out the inside of the boots with fresh water, then allowing to dry. The reason being that gortex doesn't like salt and looses it's permeability quickly. Sweat has salt in it, so if the gortex lining in your boots becomes saturated, you are effectiv...

Re: Pine marten

I watched one eat every single berry off my gooseberry bush in broad daylight. I felt a strange mixture of angry and privileged. .

Sgòr Gaoith and some ex-Munros.

$matches[2] I have long though there must be a better name for demoted Munros than designating them 'tops' or 'Corbetts'. 'Fossil' Munros perhaps? For whatever reason this seems to be an area which has suffered disproportionately, from being re-assessed with a piece of string and a Commodore 64 hom...

Glas Maol Munros

$matches[2] This was a better set of hills than I actually anticipated. Not especially rugged, but with good views towards bigger hills and interesting quirks like a wall marking a boundary line at a summit (the dedication to wall building of days gone by never fails to amaze me). I had planned to ...
