Re: What sort of food to take on a long distance walk?

We have taken heavier, better food for the first night, as you aren't carrying it for so long and it is a lovely start to a trip. I am a veggie now but remember a lovely meal, cooking pork chops, as the sun got lower above the Glyders. Possibly with smash potatoes. For breakfast, pancakes are wonder...

Re: Getting Fit

Loved the trip reports, Sgurr, especially all the scenery either side of the routes.

Re: Getting Fit

The best training for hills is definitely going up hills.

When I lived in the south of England I found the XBX exercise program made a surprising difference to my fitness, given it only takes 10 minutes a day.

Re: Braces?

Paramo do braces. I've not tried them, although have been wondering about braces too.

Re: Walking up to Lochnagar

It was my very first Munro, on a sunny August day many years ago, when I didn't know what Munros were and certainly didn't know I would ever go up them all. We went up the path from loch muick and back down by a waterfall. I wore my first ever walking boots, which had a steel shank and weighed a ton...

Re: Mera Peak

Have heard that it is a tedious snow plod, but hard work due to its height.

Have heard great things about Island Peak - a friend went there with KE and said the views were stunning.

Re: Recommended restaurants/ pubs in Portree

If you find yourself there during the day, Cafe Arriba (at the top of Quay Brae) is nice - tasty food, but quite small.

Re: Bothies and hills during Stalking

I’d rather ring, if I know the number, than have a wasted journey (although that has only happened a couple of times). We were actually up Sgurr na Feartaig on Friday and rang the number listed on WH the night before. The stalker said there was no problem with us going up our planned route and thank...

Re: How busy is the Bealach na Ba road?

Thank you. Went up there today and it was fine, not too busy. A great day out to Bheinn Bhan, with amazing views to Skye and the Torridon hills.

Re: Fisherfield Munros

Went up Beinn a' Chlaidheamh on its own as a day from Dundonnel. It was dry so there were no river crossing issues. For the others, we rented a cottage for a week at the Heights of Kinlochewe. Went up the rest on two separate days. It is a lovely spot to stay, although the midgiest place we have eve...

How busy is the Bealach na Ba road?

Hi

I'm thinking of doing a walk from the top of the Bealach na Ba road (across to Beinn Bhàn) during the next week and wondered if I'd be fighting my way through hundreds of campervans coming down it?

Is it very busy just now?

Thanks

Re: Am I experienced enough for Buachaille Etive Mor?

Sounds a good plan to start with the Beag.

I don’t have a great head for heights, but, having been up the big buachaille three times I think it looks a lot worse from the road than when you are going up it.
