Re: Name that Corrie!

Thanks! First one I guessed correctly in months :D

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 ...

An Cabar - winter returns

The second week of April saw a short return of winter conditions in northern Scotland. We thought it was a good opportunity to bag An Cabar, a small yet very intriguing mountain situated just south of Loch Fannich. I was told it offered fantastic views to the surrounding higher hills and was worth s...

Re: So how busy was it?

Loch Lochy M's on Saturday (17.04). About 10 cars. I guess too far from the central belt for the mad crowd :wink: We took an alternative route up the eastern ridge and saw nobody until the very summit but for a golden eagle. A few groups of walkers on the way down. I had expected more people, maybe ...

Spring picnic close to heaven

We had fantastic time on Carn nan Gobhar on Good Friday, despite high cloud and occasional gusts of wind. The next morning, weather was superb, with blue sky inviting us to visit another hill. I was hoping for Tom a' Choinich and Toll Creagach in Glen Affric but since they looked still in full winte...

Affric-an Easter: Càrn nan Gobhar

Carn nan Gobhar is usually climbed as a starter to the Mullardoch round and as such, never fully appreciated. Most walkers hardly notice it on their way to much more attractive Sgurr na Lapaich, but I always felt that Carn nan Gobhar deserved more thorough exploration. It is close enough to home to ...

Affric-an holidays: Aonach Shasuinn

Having climbed Aonach Shasuinn before by the most popular route (Ceann Aonach Shasuinn ridge to the summit and back down the same way), we always wanted to traverse more tops when repeating this Corbett. Our idea was to include Carn nan Coireachan Cruaidh and Cnap na Stri (both are SIMMS) in a circu...

Re: Affric-an holidays: Carn nam Bad

Good to see that most of that route is still walkable :D . I thought that the powerline works might have taken some sections of it out. Annoyingly the original Beauly-Denny line went along the bottom of Strathglass, but it got moved up onto the moorland with the upgrade to make it less visible. I s...
