New Munro?

Would this count as a Munro? Over one thousand metres, that's over three thousand feet, we could maybe arrange a space shuttle flight or something? Who is up for it?

Re: Trip to Cairngorms in February

You can't get experience without doing it; I learned in the Cairngorms in winter, sometimes on my own, sometimes with others. The trouble with others is, they can be bad company, poor at what they attempt, they may welch out if they get scared or be too ambitious and get you into trouble. There are ...

Re: Snow on Ben Cruachan?

Yesterday (14th Jan 2022) the Buchaile was in mist with small patches of snow in gullies, so likely your chosen hill may be similar; ice may remain on paths so take crampons just in case. And a helmet in case you slip and smack your brainbox on a rock.

Re: Glencoe weather

Hello all, Can anyone advise me as to what time of year tends to have the driest weather in Glencoe? I realise the weather can be changeable at any time of year, but I want to do the Aonach Eagach ridge in spring or summer,and it sounds like one for a dry day. I'm thinking some time from May to Aug...

Yes indeed it is. We got there on a beautiful sunny day, had a magnificent sunset, then it precipitated down for days until it was time to go home, when of course the sun came out again. Over to you.

Re: Name that Loch!

Jings! I loathe that car rallying in the forest tracks, I keep thinking someone is bound to get horribly killed to death, and they do. Now I have to find a picture of a loch...

Re: What are your favourite winter mountain walks?

Drive to Braemar, on to the Linn O'Dee, leave the car at the car park there and head up the track (or, if too snowy to find the track, follow the river) up to Derry Lodge and the patch of Caledonian Pine forest where the glens of Luibeg, Lui and Derry meet. Camp around this area, do not pitch your t...

From that sandy beach I'd guess Loch Laggan?

Re: Moved to Scotland from Ireland

There's Conic Hill near Balmaha, at the south east end of Loch Lomond. That is a relatively short hike which is rewarded with spectacular views over Loch Lomond towards the highlands to the west and north. Or get up to Aviemore for some more Arctic/Nordic type terrain - if the weather bodes ill then...

Re: Milngavie supply store?

Hi, it's been over 8 years since the above answer was posted so possibily the store the person was referring too no longer exists? In any case, I can't find any camping material related stores in Milngavie using google (maps). Since we can't take fuel (gas) on the plane we are looking for a store t...

Re: Beaver Fever

There was a comprehensive survey commissioned by NatureScot published in 2021. Its long and scientific but in amongst the figures are 'density' maps which show where beavers are, including in the Trossachs https://www.nature.scot/doc/naturescot-research-report-1274-survey-tayside-area-beaver-popula...

Re: Favourite walk of 2021? Why?

I took the kid to Glen Lyon in October, where we bellowed at the rutting stags, who obliged by bellowing back. When they got too stroppy we ran for the car, went home and had KFC. Tutoring the kid in the ways of righteousness is always rewarding.
