Great Bernera Coastal Path

A lovely Sunday walk along the coast of Great Bernera on the Isle of Lewis to Bosta/ Bostadh. We parked at Valasay/ Bhalasaigh. There’s only room for a couple of cars just by the foot bridge. The walk is well signposted and the posts along the route are always visible. Beware, though, as some of the...

Fiarach, a fine hill

I had time on my hands after a brief meeting with a friend in Tyndrum’s Green Welly Stop car park so I drove on to the car park at Dalrigh. Not many cars parked up but I noticed that the car park has been extended since I was last there. I’ve been up most of the hills in the vicinity but not Fiarach...

Eeeach on Beinn Each!

This is a lovely walk. I chose Beinn Each as I was walking solo and it seemed straight forward as I am wary hill walking on my own. Got parked no problem at the suggested lay-by, however, I imagine that parking may be difficult if you go at the weekend. The walk begins by going up the side of a hous...

Beinn Churalain - A Tough Wee Hill!

This is a local hill for us to do in lockdown. Always wanted to climb it as it is dominant as you approach Loch Creran Bridge heading north. The forecast was for heavy rain in the late afternoon so this was a morning outing. Even then it still tried to rain! We parked on the north side of the bridge...

A bit of a bog trot but worth it!

It was a bit of a grey, drizzly day but as we were only in the area for a few days we made the most of our time out and about. We parked at the car park at the beach. Only one other car there but I would imagine that in summer it would soon be full. We went onto the beach but the river was flowing t...

Not us, we didn’t go up towards Abyssinia. Started by the ruined house near the main road. 😀

ButterBridge route up Beinn Ime

It was a beautiful November morning when we set off at 7.30am for the car park at ButterBridge in Glenkinglas, on the A83. The car park was closed due to some road works so we headed on a little and parked the car at the start of the forestry track, (see the map at the bottom to see where we started...

It’s got it all!

Arrived at the Ski Centre car park around 9.15am on a dry October morning. Forecast was promising a dry spell of weather. For a bit of fun and to avoid the first steep, rough path we took the chairlift up! We’re not purists! :lol: Following the Walkhighlands description we headed off over a rickety ...

Don’t miss the cairn!

After some deliberation as whether to walk up the Meall nan Tarmachan ridge or Meall Ghaordaidh we decided on the latter as the forecast was for rain later and the cloud level was sitting around 3,000 feet. It seemed a straight forward route, through a gate, across a field, over a stile then along t...
