Creag Gharbh from Glen Ogle

Began the walk from the parking area in Glen Ogle where several years ago i set off for another Graham, Meall Buidhe which was a far shorter distance than the one that i was about to undertake. I could've used a shorter route from Killin but the weather was so perfect i wanted to make a proper walk ...

Four from Balsporran

A month after our last visit to the Drumochter area where we bagged a pair of Munros further up the road in a mixture of rain and clag, Big Jie and i decided to tackle the four summits on the other side of the A9. The weather was a definite improvement this time round and as we parked up at Balsporr...

Craignell to Darnaw circuit

I'd bagged a few of the hills near Clatteringshaws throughout the years but for some reason i'd missed Craignell therefore another excuse to visit Galloway on what was supposed to be a mostly sunny day was planned. As i left the A712 and drove up the narrow road behind the dam the skies were already...

The Beinns from Arinabea

After pondering over a few different routes for these Corbetts i decided on the most direct approach from Arinabea Cottage at the eastern end of Glen Lochy. The path i chose was absent from both OS Landranger and Explorer maps of the area but a quick check on the Bing maps aerial view showed me it w...

Cheers :D

Mountain bikes would've been handy for the glen section but an old motorcycle injury rules me out of that option !

rockhopper wrote:Nice day for it. Interesting way to approach these hills as opposed to a Glen Muick start. Haven't been in Glen Callater but looks a nice route - cheers :)

That was a route i found on the SMC Munro guide but a Glen Muick adventure will be on the cards next year....thanks.

Two Carns from Glen Callater

Accompanied this time out with workmate Big Jie the walk began at the busy carpark at Auchallater where we set off along the Glen Callater track. Pockets of morning fog still hung about near the mouth of the glen but was quickly burning off with the promise of a blue sky day as forecasted. It took u...

Queensberry from Forest of Ae

After a week of mostly rain i decided to tackle this hill via the Romans and Reivers Route through the Forest of Ae. The construction of the large wind farm here has seen the path through the forest resurfaced and greatly expanded with a branch reaching the open moorland just east of the hill itself...
