Cairn on Meallach Mhor

Was rambling around the Feshie and Tromie Corbetts at the week end and climbed Meallach Mhor. The summit cairn is no more and only a few stones are piled where once a reasonable cairn once stood. I was wondering if this was a lightning stike or perhaps a deliberate removal. The stones are scattered ...

Re: Altra trail runners

I bought a pair of Altra Lone Peak 4 back end of '19. I wanted to get into mountain running though jogging downhill is a better description. You get the idea, a wanna be fell runner..... Anyway, I think they are brilliant. The Toe box is enormous and at first sight you'd think I had six or seven toe...

Creag an Uamhaidh, Creagvinean forest, Dunkeld

A quick trip up Creag an Uamhaidh, a hill I've been trying to do for a while however not being the worlds greatest jungle navigator I have explored the Creagvinean forest extensively, I think, or at least I've spent quite a few hours in there and popped out in some strange places! This time armed wi...

Re: Last Munro for compleaters

I left one that was easily accessible. I have had a lot of companions who joined me on my round and I though it would be nice if they had the opportunity to join me on my last one, make an occasion out of it. Consequently I chose one that was a simple day trip not too far from home and not too arduo...

Re: Beinn Stacath

For anyone who goes in search of the Armstrong Whitworth Whitley , I have found an alternative source that put the wreckage in a different place, so it's likely that I was searching the wrong corrie. The wreckage lies to the NE of pt 701 in the Fathan Glinne and apparently there is still wreckage to...

Auch, just the three

This was certainly a return trip for me, many moons ago I'd climbed Beinn a'Chuirn with friends who had the outlying Corbett Beinn nan Fuaran to climb, it was duly bagged but being such a wet and windy day we descended back to glen without a thought for climbing Beinn a' Chasteill. Many more moons p...

Lost Leki walking poles at Inverlochlarig, Balquidder

Well I did it, I never understood how people can lose walking poles until now.b Got back to the car, threw them on the ground, got changed and then forgot them. The car was parked with a few others just East of the Inverlochlarig car park past Balquidder. This was on Sunday the 30th August and I thi...

Beinn Stacath

$matches[2] From Inverlochlarig over the bridge and then back through 'water meadows' to Invernety. Followed an old track on west bank of the Invernety looking for the bridge shown on the map which I failed to find and ended up at the sheepfold. Turned East and crossed the burn and fence and then u...

Craiglochie and Balthayock Hills

Dropping better half off in Scoon so I thought I walk the dog somewhere new. Drove to Deuchny woods and kept going on the 77 cycle route to Mains of Balthayock and started looking for a place to park. Wasn't until I got to Oliverburn that I was convinced that te car wouldn't block the road for farm ...

Stob a' Choin, steep but what a view

Quick trip up what must be one of the steepest of Corbetts at least if you go by the voie normal as recorded in the SMC Corbett book. I'd been putting this one off for a while, a lot of excuses getting in the way, and then the bridge was washed away and then there was lochdown but most of all it's s...

Re: Fhudair liked to have topped out

Well made it, unfortunately not with the dog as he was having a day off with a sore paw. Apparently a sprained wrist. I took very much the same route as before along the service road rounding into Coir' an Longairt. This time I crossed the little dam and as I suspected the natural route pushed me up...

Coinneachain Hill

With the lock down easing it seemed appropriate to get out for a run and Glen Turret is a excellent location to enjoy the hills. These are big rolling hills with some steep broken crags and shouldn't be underestimated especially in bad weather. Coming back from some work I drove up Glen Turrent to t...

We parked at the Green Knowles wind farm access road and yomped up the service track to the unnamed top pt.474 . This is given the name Rowantree Craig by another site sugges...

Torlum torlum torlum tolumtolum

I rather wanted a walk where we could get some views having struck out yesterday so we were off again, somewhere local with no long drives and a little lower to make the going easier. Torlum is not a hill that I'd heard of before, don't know why as I'm sure it's a popular hill for the folk local to ...

The Scurran and Meall Tarsuinn by compass

$matches[2] Low cloud and rain, mild. A local walk perhaps! So we were off again a short drive to Gilmerton then up to the Foulfoot Inn and a parking space just beyond. No lead to day so I had to keep him close by along the road, think he forgot it! The walk started up part of one of Wade's roads u...
