Re: Highlands Hiking Road Trip Holiday Suggestions?

the Fort William/Spean Bridge area is a good base I second that - loads of great places to see and stuff to do, with many areas of the highlands an easy drive from the Fort William area. Linnhe Lochside Holiday Park is very good, there are a lot of options for accommodation in the area. https://www...

Re: What munro is this?

Certainly looks like the Sticil (Shelter Stone Crag) on the right. Lovely clear waters of Loch Avon. "The watters o' A'an, they rin sae clear, 'twad beguile a mon o' a hunner year." Etc.

Re: Glen Coe with a 6 year old

Can a 6-year-old walk Lost valley (Coire Gabhail) and Pap of Glencoe walk with enough food & water? The trouble would be at the start; crossing the ravine means climbing down some steep steps, crossing a steel bridge with scary metal grids under foot, then climbing up a very steep eroded bank w...

Re: Lairig Ghru in the 1970s

It was just a path with the Sinclair Hut sitting above the main path That was a miserable hut; all the charm of a municiple public toilet block, with ventilation holes aligned with the pass, to let the howling gales blow through the hut. Ryvoan was much nicer, with a big fireplace. You just had to ...

Re: Lairig Ghru in the 1970s

I noticed big flagstones at the Aviemore end years ago, with rocks fallen on top. The route seems to have been quite substantial with a very good track of flagstones. I guess the clearance stopped sometime after the Great War, probably before the Second World War, when cattle droving had ceased and ...

Re: Loch Garten wail

Is there anything that makes a noise like a horse? Apart from an actual horse, obviously. The neighing and whinnying thing. I heard it on an open area, by Loch Lyon. Couldn't see a horse anywhere.

The WHERE ? That's as bad as the ridiculous Glencoe Mountain Resort foisted on us by uncaring [expletive deleted]. :shock:

Re: Larig Ghru, mid July

Thanks for the info, but camping will not solve the problem unless I walk it both ways! Still need to get back to the car! Our car will be at one end of the walk and we need to get to the other. So the common sense (at least to me!) plan would be to arrive at the car after the 10+ hour walk rather ...

Re: Larig Ghru, mid July

Unfortunately there is no public transport between the two areas, and hitch-hiking in a pandemic is unlikely to be productive. Get adventurous and take camping kit; or just sleeping bags and doss under big rock shelters at the top of Loch Avon - go via Glen Lui and Glen Derry to Loch Etchachan and o...
