Re: Glen Doll

Yeah, I ended up walking up Dreish and Mayar from Glen Prosen yesterday but spoke to quite a few people who had walked through to Corrie Fee and they said it wasn't too bad. I think if you are fairly experienced in the hills and have done a bit of scrambling etc. a few fallen trees to hurdle probabl...

Re: Glen Doll

Thanks for the replies.

I actually spoke to someone today who had walked through it recently and said they had managed but I suppose it's making what is normally an enjoyable walk into a bit of a chore.

Glen Doll

Does anyone know if the route from Glen Doll up to Corrie Fee is still impassable due to fallen trees? I know storm Arwen had caused a bit of damage up there a while back and just wondered if anyone had tried to walk up there in the last week or so?

Any info would be appreciated, thanks.

Re: Newbie with sore legs and feet

I would definitely recommend spending 10 minutes or so at the end of the walk doing some stretching exercises, before you jump in the car to head home. Thighs, calf muscles, hamstrings etc. There will be plenty online guides if you're not sure of the exact techniques. I used to suffer badly after a ...

Re: LOST - GPS - Near Corriechoille

Hi Bill, Sorry, I have only just realised that you replied to my post all those months ago! I do apologise for not responding, I thought I had been checking for replies for a good while after I put my request up but I must have given up earlier than I thought :? That was a very generous offer which ...

Re: Uamh Tom a Mhor fhir

Thanks for the replies, that info is much appreciated. Yes Tolkien, I had looked at that wee spot on Google street view so it's good to know you've used it and not had a problem. I apologise Caberfeidh for my poor geographical description, schoolboy error. I of course meant near Glen Lyon but should...

Uamh Tom a Mhor fhir

This has been on my radar for a wee while for a day when I didn't fancy climbing the higher peaks (it does happen occasionally!).. A walk up to Uamh Tom a Mhor fhir cave near to Glenmore Bothy in Glen Lyon - does anyone have any advice on this? I thought the route from Fortingall? But where would be...

Ring of Steall

I was just wondering if anyone had been round the Ring of Steall in the last couple of days? I was looking for information on the current conditions as regards to how much snow was still on this route? Would it still require ice axe and crampons or should it be do-able without them? Any information ...

Re: FOUND - DOG LEAD AN SOCACH

Excellent! I'm glad I picked it up now and can get it back to you.

I have tried that number you posted but I'm just getting an 'incorrect number' message. :-?

FOUND - DOG LEAD AN SOCACH

On summit cairn yesterday morning (25th April).

It didn't look like it had been there long and I was only beaten to the top by two young ladies who did have a dog with them but I didn't manage to catch up with them again as they were a good half hour to 45 minutes ahead of me.

Re: Dogs and Hills

As others have already said, the other 6 days of the week outside the hill activities are probably a more important factor to consider when choosing a dog. I have seen all different breeds of dogs out on the hills and in all different weathers so as long as it's not going into too harsh conditions w...

LOST - GPS - Near Corriechoille

I don't suppose anyone found a Garmin Etrex GPS at the upper parking area from Chorriechoille? The wee parking area nearest the 'wee Minister' on the start of the Grey Corries route. I definitely had it when we got back to the car as I remember stopping the route but think I've left it lying on the ...

Re: Seventy (!!) parking fines issued at Loch Lomond

Quite a lot of 'high and mighty' folk on this topic. Of course some of the parking in the photos is wrong, that's a given. But to say that if you get to your destination for the hills you have planned only to find there is no parking spaces, that you should just turn around and go to plan B or C is ...
