Re: Looking for a long easy route by Laggan - marathon train

Absolutely no problems with access at Ardverikie. You could extend your run slightly by parking in the scrappy layby on the main road (just east of SH254) about 1 mile east of the Gate Lodge, head over the concrete bridge towards Gallovie but bear right towards Kinloch (sawmill sign). This takes you...

Re: Platypus bite valve cover

The Source valve with cover is very good. It avoids puddles in the boot of the car when the valve is depressed accidentally!

Re: Carn an Righ/Glas Tulaichean Question

If you do a clockwise circuit, there is a bridge over the Glen Lochsie Burn shortly after the farm (and before the ford over the river). On the way back, there is a good bridge over the Allt Ghlinn Thaitneich about 500m before the farm. Obvious on the ground.

Re: DIY Foam Mattress

Sorry mate, but there is just no way you are going to be able to use a foam mattress that will support you off the ground and not be absolutely huge from a transportation point of view. I still think the original style Therm-a-Rest is the answer. It can easily be prevented from sliding around with a...

Re: DIY Foam Mattress

You'll never find a sack big enough to pack a foam mattress into a bothy. Think you need to persevere with Karrimat-style or Thermarest (not Neoair-style)

Re: Physical Maps

I printed pages from Memory Map, 7 or 8 pages as I recall. Really enjoyed the Skye Trail apart from the Braes section from Portree. My feet didn't enjoy the road walking. Because of blisters, we completed it in two halves. Glen Sligachan is wonderful with magnificent views of Sgurr nan Gillean and B...

Re: Getting a Taxi from Cluanie Inn? A87

I honestly don't think you will have a problem hitching a lift in Kintail. I've done it three times and got a lift within three cars each time.

Re: Summer Hill Walking Troosers

Mountain Equipment Ibex trousers do it for me as they are stretchy in use. I also have a pair of the Montaine Terra pants but I don't use them for walking because they are not stretchy. And my Terra Pants are single coloured - I think the two-tone trousers are a bit naff!

Re: Low level walks near Laggan

Lots of low level walks on the Ardverikie Estate. Lochn na h-Earba has already been mentioned . You can also walk the track up the river Pattack past Gallovie and beyond, passing various scenic spots featuring in Mrs Brown and Monarch of the Glen. There is a nice triangular circuit which takes you d...

Re: Getting to the Munros

Re Skye, Bruach na Frithe is the easiest of the Skye Munros followed, probably, by Blaven. Good luck. Hope the weather is fine for you.

Re: Getting to the Munros

I have no doubt that many Munros can be done using public transport but it certainly isn't easy or straightforward. I was also concerned that the OP had only listed two Munros. My concerns may be ill-founded but I would like to see him tackle a few more hills before undertaking this adventure.

Re: Getting to the Munros

If you think that trains and buses are an option when trying to walk the Munros, it begs the question as to whether you have the experience to tackle something like this. I think you need to give it more thought.
