Beinn Mholach

With John. Bikes from Dalnaspidal. Frogs, plovers, mummy birds trying to lure us away from their babies. A grand day out.

Re: Boot Recommendations for people with wide feet?

Nevisports do half sizes if that helps - they have a branch in Edinburgh.

Great thanks - that looks very good. My mountain bike should be fine with that.

A bike any use for Beinn Mholach?

Hi
I am thinking of going up Beinn Mholach from the A9, and wondered if a mountain bike was any use to get nearer the hill? it looks like there is some decent track at least at first - does it go on for far enough and would you have to lift the bikes over any big fences?
Thanks

Re: Prescription hillwalking glasses

I just wear my normal glasses and have done for decades with few problems.

However I did once have a light weight pair blow off on a very windy day once, which didn’t do them much good, so now either take them off if it is very breezy or use a behind the head thing to secure them.

Re: Scrambling route recommendations for this summer?

If you are on Skye, there is a nice route up and over the Sgumain stone shoot, a traverse round to Sgurr dubh mor, then back under the cliffs below Sgurr Alasdair, and up again to Sgurr Alasdair and back down the Alasdair stone shoot.

Re: How did you stay fit during lockdown?

I bought a climber/stepper but to be honest it was pretty boring, so it didn't get as much use at it could have. This was combined with local walking in the suburbs of Glasgow and latterly out to the wee hills on the outskirts, plus some cycling on the unusually quiet roads. However when I did get b...

Re: Ben Alder from Dalwhinnie on foot

I can highly recommend the Corrour estate houses - we rented one for a week and Ben Alder and Beinn Bheul were fine for a day trip. Loads of other accessible hills too, and lovely food at the Station House restaurant if you wanna break from self catering.

Any experience of Berghaus Womens Supalite II GTX Boots?

Hi I am thinking of getting a pair of Berghaus Womens Supalite II GTX Boots and wondered if anyone has tried them? I do not have wide feet so am not looking for anything too roomy. They would be for 3season use on rough ground. (I also have heavier boots for winter & crampons). I am getting them...

Re: Import Duties

Also even if it doesn’t cost more it can certainly take quite a bit longer to arrive. I had several weeks delay on something small and cheap posted from Slovenia (which I had thought was coming from the UK), so it is certainly worth double checking where it is if you need something in a rush.

Re: Best trousers for thick leg lol

I got a lot of wear from a pair of Powerstretch leggings, before I wore them out. For colder weather I like Paramo velez trousers. They come in different lengths too so might suit.

Re: Women's warm & waterproof jacket

I like my paramo andina jacket for most of the year, apart from the warmer months. If really cold add a gilet on over it, but usually only when stopping for a bite to eat.
