Re: Which Munros are in the Cairngorms?

Thanks for all the advice. I think for my goal I’ll go with all Ms east of the A9, which gives us 13 to go - some long ones ! We do venture elsewhere too, I particularly love Assynt and the far North. But the Cairngorms are nearer for access and in my childhood home patch. Hope to see you on the hil...

Which Munros are in the Cairngorms?

I’m never going to compleat the Munros. But I would like to give myself a target of doing all the Munros in the Cairngorms. And I’ve made reasonable progress and loving it. But what should I include in my target? I’ve seen different definitions - eg Walkhighlands includes Ben Alder but SMC book has ...

A great day on Tinto Hill

The forecast looked excellent and there were beautiful blue skies in West Lothian, so we were up and away early. We were really looking forward to Tinto Hill and hoping to bag our second Graham. Mmm, didn't get very far south and a dense mist came down. It really wasn't looking good for the walk whe...

Why isn't my report public?

Hi I wrote up a wee report on Torlum, which I thought might be interesting to others as there weren't any user reports already on about it in the snow. A nice wee hill, btw. However, though it shows to me and my OH - another Walkhighland's member - can access it also, it isn't one of the public repo...

Torlum in the snow and sun

It looked to be a cracking February day for some walking, so we set off to take on two Perthshire Marilyns that we hadn't visited before. Our first of the day was Torlum, to be followed by the nearby Knock of Crieff. image.jpeg We followed the instructions on Graeme D's previous report, parking oppo...

A fine February afternoon on Birnam Hill

Having failed to complete the swampy Newtyle HIll, just across the river, the previous day we set off in determined mood to Birnam Hill. Learning the lessons from yesterday, we decided to start from the carpark and miss out the path from Birnam as this can be very muddy in wet spells. We also return...

Hello from a new member

Hi there I'm quite new to the site and to 'proper' hillwalking. I've always loved being in the country, but over the last eighteen months I've been working up from trails, mainly around Atholl Woods, to a few of the Pentlands and now a few Marilyns and one very proud Corbett, Ben Vrackie - see below...

First timers in Fife

We haven't walked in Fife before, but we fancied trying somewhere new and the forecast looked pretty good around Falkland. Initially we missed the correct turning for the carpark, turning off too early, but we soon found the narrow road up to the spacious carpark. We arrived about 10am and there wer...

Standing stones, views and mud

We took this walk on an unseasonably warm January day - about 9 degrees - but after Perthshire had endured many weeks of heavy rain. The first secton of the path up the hill was very wet, with a stream running down it, but there was often room on the grass verges to pick a route to avoid the worst o...

Llamas in the Lammermuirs

Our planned trip to our local hills, the Pentlands, was scuppered by thick mist so we decided to give the Lammermuirs a first try, as the forecast there was brighter. Following Walkhighland's (very clear) directions, we parked at the cattle crossing and headed off. It was a very still day, with snow...

Glen Tilt circuit

This is a nice walk, with some good views up the glen along the way. The river itself was very attractive, one of those lovely Scottish rivers with lots of big rocks and clear, brown water. Plenty of spots by the river to stop and picnic. The route is a bit boggy here and there and in rainy conditio...
