Ben Avon in the sunshine

An early start, up and away from home at 5:30am on a nice sunny morning. Pleasant drive to the Car Park at Keiloch, a bit cloudy at the peaks at this point but sun fighting through. Headed off through the estate and past the pine trees and alongside the forest beside the stream. Sun was breaking thr...

The Cairnwell munro's

First walk of the year, and eager to get one to get the legs going again. As the first one we picked an easy access one that was not too far but had reasonable ascent/descents. A nice drive on quiet roads to get to the ski centre for 8:00am. Then straight into a steep ascent on a rubble path up towa...

In the clouds of Beinn a'Ghlo

A nice early morning start, driving away from house at 5:30am to head down to Loch Moraig (a 2 hour drive). Weather looked okay, if a little cloudy. Parked up at the Loch and immediately you see the first peak of the day (or would have except the top was shrouded in cloud). A nice short walk to the ...

Ben Macdui and Derry Cairngorm in the rain

Started off early, around 5:30am from the house to Linn O’Dee - roads nice and quiet. Weather was overcast as we arrived but we avoided rain for the flat stretch past Derry Lodge and up to Glen Luibeg. As we took the right fork in the path to head to Sron Riach the rain started to blow through so wa...

Tolmount and Tom Buidhe via Loch Callater

A fine day for a walk, cool with a breeze but fine for walking. A decent walk through Glen Callater to the Loch, once at the Loch we took the low path to the right of the Loch as you look towards Tolmount as we ‘missed’ the low path to the left. Pleasant way and spotted a large herd of deer on highe...

Carn a'Chlamain

An absolutely excellent sunny day (if a little warm) for a walk. This was a good long hike to kick off the 2012 climbing season for us. The walk is well laid out as a land rover track all the way to the summit, with a short rocky scramble to the actual summit. Beautiful scenery along Glen Tilt, we t...

Re: White Mounth Munro's, Glen Muick

True; we were lucky enough to see a small herd of deer when on the summit of Bannoch; they crossed over the path we used from the 3rd Munro.

Mount Keen from Glen Esk

Pleasant morning to start the walk, youngest lad came with us for his first hill walk. A good straightforward walk and climb but long enough to be a challenge for a first climb. Bit of rain on ascent but stayed mainly dry, bit misty at top but could see the glens either side of the mountain. Good wa...

Mount Battock via Clachnaben

A good walk that was easy to follow and the directions guides from the website are pretty accurate. The walk had steady up’s and downs. Clachnaben was a good climb in warm weather and got a sweat on, the walk from here to Mount Battock was a bit boggy in places and there are works going on which was...

An Socach from Glen Clunie

Found parking after a couple of drive past's; was obvious once you checked the map print out. Probably too early in morning for me OR just being a typical man!! It was a good walk in nice spring conditions. Route described on website was spot on and easy to follow. The climb was steep in places and ...

Mount Keen by Glen Taner

Fairly clear day at low levels to start the walk. Ended up as a long walk, extended by about 1.5 miles due to parking in wrong place, made walk over 18 miles. Climb itself was very tough due to deep snow and steep ascent, with light snow/rain on way up. Caroline had to take lead towards top as I was...

White Mounth Munro's, Glen Muick

A fairly clear day, very minor rain at one point and very blustery at summits. Good steady walkfrom the car park up to the ‘ladder’ adjacent to Meikle Pap, made good time up the boulders and on to the summit of Lochnagar - an excellent viewpoint as no clouds to hinder your view. We didn't stop and h...

Glas Maol Munros circuit

Almost a perfect day for walking, being sunny, light breeze, clear skies and hot (maybe just a bit too hot). Walk started with a nice gentle ascent towards Carn an Tuirc, then was a very steep ascent via some loose stones - tough in the heat as we had trousers on to protect legs through the longer g...

Ben Tirran by Loch Brandy and Wharral

Was a cold crisp morning, no wind and blue skies. Climb starts to ascend immediately from behind the hotel. Excellent views on way up to Loch Brandy and the Snub. Continued up to top of Green Hill, ground now covered in a heavy frost - main jackets on now as temperature has dipped further and cold w...
