Re: An attempt at all tops on Liathach

Great to see someone else doing the tops too. I am barely at 15% through them but have so far enjoyed the extra bumps on the road. As Meall Dearg was the first top I didn't climb at the time, it'll no doubt be my top completion hill :lol:

Re: Parking at this popular Munro area

Just to say I did these 4 on a Friday arriving at the CP at 07:20 and there was 2 spaces left.

Re: Curved Ridge

I'd agree with above - I myself went slightly too W and found myself on the approach to D Gully (which actually probably increased the time I got to spend scrambling by about 10 minutes) but soon realised that no, I should be much closer to the Rannoch Wall than this, and still ended up at basically...

Re: Misery on the Hill of Stake

Really feeling for you on this one - I've had some awful back-of-the-heel pain in new boots/socks but nothing like that. I have inadvertently been bagging Scotland's council tops for a couple of years now and only have 2 mainland tops left, after that it's just Orkney and Shetland. My one day bag of...

Re: Fifth Summit Foiled at Bridge of Orchy

Great report! Your beetle is Carabus nitens, a lover of bare uplands :)

Re: access not possible

As far as I'm aware, when a sign says that it means footfall is still permitted, just not regular cars. I'd be very surprised if the main way to the top of the highest point in Shetland has been revoked!

Re: 89 Donalds in 89 Days - Lowther Hills

Well done! That shelter door must be fairly new - wasn't there in 2018 for me!

Re: Stob Odhar - Highest Point in Knapdale

I really fancy this walk, but dont fancy punting my dog over the deer fence.... Thoughts? Were there a lot of deer/sheep around? Thank you It wasn't a particularly high one - just very weak everywhere! Depends on the dog of course but I think you'd find a way! No sheep at all that I can recall, but...

Re: Dogs fouling on pathways

I recently started working at a nature reserve and we've come across an interesting dilemma. On one hand, if someone is not going to be prepared to pick up the dog's mess and put it in a bin (as there are none around) then that is of course irritating (and even potentially dangerous). Despite this, ...

Re: Around the top of the Manor Valley

I too was blown away by Deer Law's cairn! A human construction do you think?

Re: The Highest Point in Inverclyde, Creuch Hill

Nice work and some marvellous shots! I too am on a Scottish council tops mission and am really not far off now. Creuch Hill was a great little hill (and was my local top) - fortunately the track I used was still there when I went up - but it was a hell of a slog from Hill of Stake.

Re: Kaim Hill - a hidden gem

Lovely! I've been meaning to do Kaim Hill for a while now. Fairlie Glen itself has some wonderful waterfalls too that I noticed when going up Blaeloch Hill.

Re: Glass half full - Beinn Ìme NE Ridge from Inveruglas

Really good to see this. I finally climbed Ben Vane for the first time in November last year and coming back through Gleann Uaine the next day was unbelievable. The sun's rays were shining right between the two largest towers like something out of a film. I got home and couldn't believe how little i...

Re: Everest Trek 1998

Fascinating stuff Sgurr! A lot of drama crammed in as usual it seems, even back then, and nice to see film photos in the forum :) Always blown away by the wonderful contrast between the brown sunniness of the 'glens' vs the petrifying blue, black and white of the summits in photos of that area.

Re: Frozen at the Stake

Lovely stuff! Never envisioned a return to Hill of Stake for you both so soon :lol: - not a common wildcamp venue but christ it looks chilly! We were up Irish Law quite late on that day - I think we'll be half a pixel somewhere in that 3rd photo. Couldn't believe how packed the car parks were but ca...
