Beinn Dearg and Meall a'Mhuic

A forecast of mid-afternoon rain had me setting off early for Glen Lyon. Parked at the Innerwick car park and was soon on my way, past the war memorial and onto the track leading over to Loch Rannoch. I was heading to Beinn Dearg first, so followed the forestry track right to the edge of the trees a...

Geal Charn from Balsporran

The last day of our Tulloch trip. We wanted a short day to finish with and, as we were coming home via the A9, this hill fitted the bill perfectly. After a short drive from the bunkhouse, we got out of the car at Balsporran Cottage to be met by a cold, brisk wind. Undeterred, we got our boots on and...

Beinn na Lap

The third day of our Tulloch trip. We decided to take advantage of the West Highland Line and have a short trip up one stop to Corrour. It was a novelty to be able to leave our accommodation and step right on to the station platform for the morning train. Fifteen minutes later, we were at Corrour. A...

Creag Pitridh and Geal Charn

After a comfortable night at Tulloch Station Lodge, we had a short drive along the A 86 to Luiblea road end. Plenty of places to park along here before getting booted up. The early part of the track was busy with forestry traffic and vehicles for the stone crushing works nearly. However, once clear ...

Pap of Glencoe

Day 1 of a trip based at Tulloch Station Lodge. We decided to break the journey north with a half-day walk up the Pap of Glencoe. I was delighted that the spell of dry sunny weather was holding out as we made our way along the A82. On my previous visits I had not had much of a view - indeed on the f...

Druim Fada

The final day of our Loch Lochy trip. We were keen to have a short walk for the morning before driving home and Druim Fada fitted the bill perfectly. We had a short drive to Glen Loy and we found the start of the walk opposite Inverskilavulin. The parking area is marked, but it is quite small. As we...

Sron a'Choire Gairbh and Meall na Teanga from Laggan Locks

This walk was the second day of our long weekend at the Great Glen Hostel. After a comfortable night, we had the luxury of not having to drive to the hill - but the downside was starting the day with a short section along the A82, albeit with a bit of verge to follow. We picked up the Great Glen Way...

Beinn a'Chaorainn

This was the first day of a long weekend based at the Great Glen Bunkhouse. Fortified by some excellent breakfast rolls from the Real Food Cafe in Tyndrum, we arrived at the hill around 11am. Rather than park at the end of the track, we chose the layby a bit to the east, which necessitated an unplea...

Beinn Dorain and Beinn an Dothaidh

I first climbed these hills on a wet June Saturday in 1980. I must have driven past them hundreds of times since and felt cheated that I hadn't enjoyed the view - especially from Beinn Dorain. I had therefore saved the reascent for a clear day and I certainly wasn't disappointed. I parked at the now...

Geal-Charn and A'Mharconaich from Blasporran

My planned walk yesterday was postponed after a poor weather forecast, so I found myself heading up the A9 on a bright morning, with all to play for. Unfortunately, after such an encouraging start to the day, you can imagine my disappointment 10 minutes from Balsporran, when the could rolled in and ...

Re: Meall Corranaich and Meall a' Choire Leith

Thanks - 1982 was the last time I climbed these hills, then from the NTS car park. It was good to revisit them.

Meall Corranaich and Meall a' Choire Leith

A brighter morning as forecast we we set off to the Lawers range. Passed Ben Ledi and Benvane, where I was last weekend, then on through Killin and up the wee road past Lochan na Lairge to park just beyond the cairn at the summit of the pass. Considering this is a school holiday, the roads were incr...

Re: Ben Ledi and Benvane from Falls of Leny

Good pics to see what the route is like between Ben Ledi and Benvane, the path looks decent, thanks! I was just plotting a GPX for this route recently. Don't think the other half would enjoy it though since it looks like about 1 hour 45 to reach the second Corbett and she's not had to deal with the...

Ben Ledi and Benvane from Falls of Leny

After an enforced absence, it was good to get back out on the hill. A glorious morning, but as I suspected that the Falls of Leny car park would be busy, I left early and arrived at 8.15. Even at that hour, there were quite a few cars there and only a few places remaining. Parked up and was on my wa...
