The one that didn't get away

A return journey to catch the one that got away last year. See my report from November 2019. The thing is, this mountain took something from me. My nerve and my confidence. I found that I had regained a fear of exposure and heights that I developed when the kids were young but that I had worked hard...

Ciste Dubh & Am Bathach

I slept in the camper van the previous night. In bed by 9pm and asleep by 9:30pm. This was due to walking A'Chralaig and Mullach Froach Choire the day before. My left knee started to twinge on the slope up Am Bathach. I wondered should I go back, but decided to push on. As I climbed, the thought goi...

Let one go to find the meaning of life

This is one of those reports where it is more about what I learned. Every walk I do, I seem to learn something new. Last walk I did was really in May as I have been busy with other things. So I waited until there was deep snow and freezing temperatures. Seems a good plan. I set off in the camper on ...

Re: Hoping for snow

An excellent report and some really nice photos of a great hill. I think you may have got a bit exciting letting us know how much your cheap gloves were though - that's quite a price range for "cheap" :lol: I tend to find quite a bit of the so called cheaper kit is just as good as the exp...

Hoping for snow

The forecast has been good recently. As in, it is accurate. It was due to be sunny, cold but not windy. I had hoped to get some pictures of the hills in the snow. I left the house in Fife at around 8am and it was -8°C .As it turned out, there was not as much snow as expected. As usual, this was a do...

Aonach Beag Four from Culra Bothy

An early start for me; leaving the house at 5:30am. Uneventful drive from Fife up the A9 to Dalwhinnie. It was still dark by the time I got there about 7:20 and it took a while before I realised that the parking was down the lane. There is a sign there saying parking for walkers, but tricky to see i...

A tough initial climb.

My first ever post, so a bit brief and a bit sketchy. I chose this climb for today as it looked not too bad for ascent and also the distance was longer than I have been doing recently. I'm trying to build up my endurance to tackle harder climbs. I was a bit concerned by previous reports that had sai...
