Re: Walking While "ill"

That must have taken some writing. Tough enough to read with the expectation of the ending to come. I have enjoyed your reports of the exploits of you both on this and another site. You and he have certainly had a life, and hopefully a lot more to come for you. Not sure what words can help but there...

Re: Stalking the stalkers on Sgor na h-Ulaidh

Well done on your first solo munro.
I did this on the same route a number of years ago before all the felling and hydro works. The forest section does seem to take some time to get through.
I would recommend the same approach for Beinn Fhionlaidh also.

New SMC Munros Guide

Just received the new SMC Munros book as a gift. On first look it is a good update.
Although always researching on line I still like to sit with a book to get inspiration on different routes up previously climbed hills and the pictures are always good (and have a view!)

Re: Dalmunzie Hotel Car Parking

When I used this a few years back I just sought permission and used the bar at the end of the walk. They seemed more than happy with that.
Probably a lot of costs to recoup after the lockdowns.
Would still use at the rate advised if doing these again.

Re: What kind of map do you prefer?

I like too take a 1:25000 OS with me. This is used in conjunction with OS Locate and a compass as required.
I prefer thee detail at this scale. I usually have my day opened out in a Ortlieb Map Case (A3) for when, or if, I need to reference it.

Re: The Forcan bypass is a difficult path of boulders

Must be a personal thing as I used this a few weeks ago as it was very windy and damp.
I found the path, although subject to some rockfall over the years, to be a quick route. I used it on the way back down as it was preferable to the steep decent as described in the route.

Re: Ben More and Stob Binnein from Inverlochlarig

I did that route a few years back. It made a good circuit, you get to a track eventually in the glen on the return.
Never been up from the other side as it looks like a slog.
It is a nice route to the start of the walk past Loch Voil etc too, drop in to Rob Roy's grave on the way home.

Re: Camping in Glen Dessarry

Look at the ridge towards Sgurr Beag. At the crossing of the paths there are a couple of lochans at 622 height.
There was a useful outcrop that provided som protection when I was up there.

Re: Camping in Glen Dessarry

When I did these me and my mate went to Sgurr More first and camped on the ridge between there and An Eag, there was a lochan there for water. Completed the round the following day back to the car.

Re: Cycling to Corrour Shooting Lodge Loch Ossain

I cycled to just above Loch Ossian from Rannoch the other weekend. Track is good all the way there and good down to the Loch where it continues to either the lodge or Corrour station the other way.

Re: Oh what a circus - the two Sgorrs from Craig

Hi snowdonia7,
That was me and my mate that got in the storm shelter for a brew, lunch and some respite from the weather.
We cut down off the hill and made it across the river that enabled us to join the wire bridge. Did not aid in staying any drier though!

Change of Profile

Paul, For some reason a field changed in my profile changed from Mountain Walker to Munro Compleatist. Whilst I am endeavouring to get there I have not had a sudden burst of activity since the lockdown. I have changed it back but thought this may be some other issue you should be aware of. Regards, ...
