Re: Munro Weather Forecasting

The Met Office app (and website) gives you a forecast for most hills. Type in the name of the hill you are looking at (not all the hills are shown, so look at a slightly higher but very close by hill) and it gives you wind speed plus gust speed for the summits, along with visibility, precipitation ...

Re: Stalking In Glen Lyon

To be clear, we don't think Chesthill's approach to stalking restrictions, or access generally, complies with the Scottish Outdoor Access Code, but having just been to check the situation around the parking, thought I should post a bit of info here (will also update the route guide). The clearway d...

Re: South Glen Shiel Ridge..

When doing the Munros on the north side of the glen I used the following scheme:- Start by leaving tent at the Shiel Bridge site. On day 1, drive up to the car park at the start of the Five Sisters, leave car there and walk back over the hills to the tent (optional stop at the Kintail Lodge on the w...

Re: Mullardoch Boatman

How difficult is it to walk along the north shoreline of the loch? About 4 years ago I walked in along the north shore, camped then walked back out over the hills the next day. My memory is of a very pleasant walk, with a decent path for at least most of the way. Mind you, it might have felt differ...

Re: Gaick pass and Leathad an Taobhain

A couple of years ago I walked in towards Leathad an Taobhain from the north expecting to follow the Minigaig track and was unpleasantly surprised to find it very overgrown and difficult to follow. I don't think it's used very much. I certainly wouldn't like to try to take a bike that way!

Re: What's your oldest piece of kit?

I bought my Karrimat 1971 from the original Graham Tiso shop in Edinburgh. It's a bit different from the ones you get these days, first of all because it's plain white (or actually a rather grubby grey now) - in those days they hadn't started adding colour. It's also a rather odd size - 100x66 cm. A...

Re: New covid restrictions

No word or any statements from MRT or Mountaineering Scotland or any others either, following these new announcements as far as I can see. Probably the only issue there is if someone gets rescued from a hill in the wrong health board area then there might be a certain amount of Twitter/Facebook sha...

Re: Crossing a river in spate?

Of course, in this case, it doesn't matter too much because you can just stay on the South bank of the burn.

Re: View north from Hunterston

There are two hills just visible over the shoulder of Cumbrae - I would suggest that these are Beinn Bhuidhe and Beinn Bheula (although the latter might be hidden by Beinn Ruadh which will almost be in-line). Then the three obvious groups of distant hills are Ben Donich and Beinn an Lochain (which a...
