Re: Ruadh-stac Beag direttissima: don't try it at home!

Many thanks for all your nice comments! :D :D :D Glad to provide some entertaining reading :wink: especially when it is so wet and windy outside! I think we all have a few stories like that, trying the direct route which proved to be a real pain in the (***) :lol: Kevin is recovering well. Last week...

Too far east this time...

This Munro is a sidekick of another one, over 100m higher and widely recognized.

Re: Ruadh-stac Beag direttissima: don't try it at home!

Oh BP - that reminds me of the first time I went up Foinaven, also by a direct and crazy route. Having done it once, I'm happy to adhere to your advice And you'll be wise to! :wink: This was one of the most ridiculous ascents we have done in our career... especially that it is just a few hundred me...

Thanks :D Sgurr Choinnich Mor from Glen Nevis side is on my list of routes still to-do!

Ruadh-stac Beag direttissima: don't try it at home!

A week after our re-visit to Arkle we still felt like doing something steep, rocky and ridgy. Weather for the weekend was going to be good in the north-west again (a rare occurrence in Scotland!) so we picked another Corbett to re-climb, this time in Torridon. The choice was between Ruadh-stac Beag ...

Re: Forecast WRONG again

And Kevin is trying to convince me to to cycle up this road on bikes fully loaded with overnighting gear...
:lol: :lol: :lol:

One of several options for our final Munros, the plan is to bag Ben Dronaig as well. Good to see what I've signed up to!

Re: Up Arkle with Mr Hickey

Thanks, guys, always happy to tell another far north story :D It is such a fantastic area - not a single boring hill. I'm looking forward to next year and returning to Foinaven and Suilven. Meall Horn/Sabhal Beag combo is also on the list. We're taking it easy at the moment; Kevin has a rib injury (...

Re: Couple of subs north of Bonar Bridge

Aaah, many thanks for this report! Perfect hills for short winter days. Now bring on snow and frost! :D I was thinking about a bigger round of Bonar subs from Glen Evelix (I could even pretend that the glen was named after me :wink: ) but the shorter options look tempting. Hopefully we don't get loc...

Up Arkle with Mr Hickey

The hills of the far north (like Arkle) taste best in autumn. Some routes might be too long for shorter days but nothing compares to a nice ridge walked in September colours :D Weather is more likely to be capricious though but as we experienced during our recent visits to the north-west, it pays to...

Re: Buidhe Bheinn, from Glenshiel rather than Kinloch Hourn

From all the comments (more than expected for a dull, uneventful walk report!), it seems Buidhe Bheinn has been a bit of a disobliging hill for a lot of folks, having to go back and get bagged in place of Sgurr a Bhac Chaolais :shock: Must have caused many headaches as the actual Corbett summit wan...

Re: Mr Hickey finds the passage!

Another good one, BP - looks familiar 😉 This is one set of hills I definitely plan to revisit - just wish I was as close to them as you are ! - cheers Thanks, RH, agree Quinag is not a mountain to visit only once, just as other Assynt hills. We are currently doing a second round of the Assynt/Coiga...
