Re: Carn a'Chlamain - Car Park

Plenty of parking in Blair atholl it self if the bridge of tilt car park is full Thanks. That would however extend the walk :shock: Yes but not by much. If you are walking it rather than biking there is a nice path through the trees on the eastern bank of the Tilt which avoids much of the road walk...

Re: Jock's Road out of lockdown: Tolmount and pals

Just past the buildings, there is a knoll topped by a well-constructed cairn. I took a stoat up it for the view, and discovered that the cairn marks the occasion of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. Did she come here in person? It seems quite possible, given that a good landrover track ends just short o...

Re: Dingwall to Applecross

For any sort of long distance walking not involving summits, invest in a copy of Scottish Hill Tracks and choose whichever route suits you.

Re: Shining Tor, Cat's Tor and Errwood Hall

Photos not showing up for me. I'd be interested to see them as Shining Tor is a Marilyn I have yet to do.

Re: Pen-y-ghent and (mainly) friends

Almost identical to how I did these 5, except I started from Rainscar and thus dodged the up/down at either end :lol: But made up for it by adding Horse Head :crazy:

I remember I had to motivate myself for the plod up Darnbrook in the afternoon - that seemed an interminable climb.

Re: Stay at home

Just as there is no curfew on when you may go hillwalking, cycling or whatever (we're coming up to the best time of year for those who enjoy a bit of night walking) there is no ban on staying outdoors overnight. For obvious reasons there is a restriction in overnighting in a household other than yo...

Re: Glen Tilt river crossing question

Hi Al, Last year I did a short 2-day backpack starting in Blair Atholl and going over Beinn a'Ghlo on day 1 to a camp at Loch Loch (so good they named it twice). It is straightforward to descend east from the 728m col north of Meall a'Mhuirich. There is good ground by the loch at Cumin's Cairn (mark...

Re: backpacking training in the current climate

Hi Al, I live near Billingshurst station and the trains are so deserted now you will probably be a considerable distance from other passengers anyway. I guess the bigger issue is if your main trip is cancelled/prevented from going ahead, but even if so there is no harm in getting out in Sussex regar...
