The shape of water

In our quest to do a second round of Torridons, we are now close to the finish line, with only 7 listed hills left. In my opinion, ANY mountain in Torridon is worth repeating, even if using the same route. Many hills in this area can only be traversed in one way (Alligin, Beinn Dearg) and for most o...

Re: Poolewe car parking

We used the car park in Poolewe on Saturday (we climbed Meall Meinnidh) and when we arrived at 8:30, it was nearly full. It is usually crowded on weekends, so important to be there early to snatch a spot :D I remember that on another occasion, when we walked the Loch Kernsary circuit, we left car in...

Beinn nan Imirean: pleasant surprise

The day after the Voodoo investigation, weather improved enough for us to consider climbing a Corbett or a Graham. Our choice was Beinn nan Imirean, mainly because we haven't done it before. I have heard stories about this hill, especially the infamous peat hags en route to the summit, so we prepare...

Spot on :D I'm so behind with our recent walks, I still haven't posted my Badrallach report.

Your go!

Re: Black Panther does Voodoo

More small pieces of wreckage, found all over the corrie: $matches[2] $matches[2] $matches[2] $matches[2] $matches[2] $matches[2] It is possible to climb out of Coire nam Frithallt and had weather been better we'd have been tempted, but today the wind was gusting 40mph so we decided to give the summ...

Black Panther does Voodoo

I'm aware that the title might attract a few fans of black magic and paranormal activities. If you stumbled upon this trip report looking for a supernatural anecdote, then I'm sorry to disappoint you. No doll stabbing here. The Voodoo in question was a jet fighter, specifically a McDonnell F-101C Vo...

Re: Name that Corrie!

Is it the less popular side of Tarmachan Ridge? Coire Riadhailt?

The ridge that never ends

Originally my plan was to drag Kevin out to Ardgour to do either the Rois-Bheinn round or Beinn Odhar Bheag and Beinn Mhic Cedidh circuit. Both routes with multiple tops and a lot of ascent over rough terrain, but we enjoy a challenge. Last year we climbed the Garbh Bheinn circuit (including two Gra...

Re: Now that's what I call Education Recovery Planning! - Vo

I was hoping somebody might do this route for Beinn Donachain before we get around to it, so thank you :D :D It's a bit of a drive for us, but these days we're running out of new hills close to home.

Luna looks the happiest dog in the world!

Re: Meall Dubh from Inverlael

Ahh the infamous Meall Dubh. Kevin almost lost his foot to frostbite here :lol: :lol: :lol: It probably looks just as wet every time of the year. Not a very popular hill, but I agree it's a quick one to get to from Inverness. In the past, there was uncertainty about the true summit of this hill. The...

Re: Bonkers way up An Coileachan

Useful report on a couple of my outstanding Munros. I like steep ascents, as it gets them over with quicker. My new e-bike was delivered today, so that looks a good approach route for the Fannichs. Did you get an picture of the wild camping spot near the Lodge? We didn't really pay much attention t...

Bonkers way up An Coileachan

Kevin had a few extra days off to use in April and I spent hours online, looking for interesting routes, printing maps and hunting for grid references to crash sites. In the end, I produced a big pile of printouts and a large folder of GPS routes, all with hope that weather cooperates. Sadly, the wa...

Re: So how busy was it?

We were up that way too at the weekend (Badrallach specifically). As you say, relatively quiet roads, but the Wyvis carpark (including another layby about 0.5 miles north of the official carpark) as well as the pull-ins at either end of the Fannaichs, and the Shenavall/An Teallach parking area were...

The ridge that nobody climbs

It all started last year when the new reality forced us to search for alternative routes up the hills we had already climbed rather than driving for 2 hours to tick off something new. I even created a list of " bizarre ideas for well known mountains" and it is now proving useful. Going up ...
