Re: Puck's Glen to Beinn Ruadh

Re: Path to Swallows Den

The path up the Swallows Den is fine but is pretty muddy in the winter months. The muddy section is about 200m long and heading out of Fairy Glen in the direction described ends in a wooden stairway and a steep uphill section before you get the reward of the beautiful views down to Chanonry Point. I...

Re: Christmas camp on Cul Mor Assynt

thanks folks. We are back to domestic life again now. Camping in winter can be a great memorable experience- and also can be pretty grim !!
Dooterbang- nice looking trip up Ben More. I recommend Utah for outdoors adventure with its canyons and warm sunshine- I can dream!
