Re: October light

Wonderful! I'm stuck at home in excruciating pain from shingles in my thigh, or at least I was until I went on this virtual wander. Thoroughly enjoyed Argyll and co in Autumn light through your lens, and glad you had such a cracking week. :clap:

Re: Iceland: Laugavegur Trail part 2 of 2

Iceland looks great - love to go there but doubt I ever will - too old. What is the gorge cut through? Volcanic tufa/ash? definitely not Mountain Avens - which has 8 petals (latin dryas octopetalis) looks like grass of Parnassus which you also find here, but I don't think the leaves are right - sax...

Iceland: Laugavegur Trail Part 1 of 2

Paul's done his own superb report of the Laugavegur Trail, with he and Helen walking it under their own steam: https://www.walkhighlands.co.uk/Forum/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=75244 My trip was a guided version for various reasons, and a couple of friends joined me. The instigation to go had been mine...

Iceland: Laugavegur Trail part 2 of 2

Day 2 - Hrafntinnusker to Álftavatn Continued from Day 1 https://www.walkhighlands.co.uk/Forum/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=92761 A tiny day of about 7.5 miles awaited us, which was basically descent, steep and slippery into the gorges of Jökultungur. No idea why the planned day was so short, and if it...

Leisurely Beinn a'Chrulaiste before the crowds

Back in July, needing a short walk somewhere near Ballachulish before meeting a friend, I settled on Beinn a' Chrulaiste. Sitting across from Buchaille Etive Mor as it does, it looked to be a superb viewpoint. And not just of its immediate Glencoe neighbours, but hopefully over to the Mamores as wel...

Re: Almost a dead otter...

Lovely report with beautiful autumnal photos (no dead otters and driving in the rain of course!)

Re: The alternative Dalmally horseshoe

Lovely report, as ever, and with your usual helpful info :D All the viewpoints look superb and definitely worth the walk and the linger. Love the shots of Loch Awe!

Getting up early not as bad as carrying all that stuff. :wink:


I was thinking the same as I read your wonderful report. What a fantastic day :D

Re: Glen Etive with a Broken Toe

She's made of stern stuff, Allison. Inspiring choices for crowd-avoiding (mostly) in Glen Etive on a sunny day. And some beautiful late summer photos. :D

Re: Can't see Snowdon's crowds from Tryfan :-)

Thank you again Tim and Alteknacker. Tim, your summer and winter Glyders are beautiful, especially winter of course, and wow, what clouds! I couldn't take my eyes of the 'battle' one. Alteknacker, I have absolutely no regrets about not doing the A&E/Sion a Siân jump! I'd jumped enough ;-). Fab s...

Re: Ben Lui & Beinn a Chleibh - 2nd attempt

I read this with great pleasure on the day you posted it, and was going to express my appreciation then :clap: :clap: :clap: ; but i got sucked into trying to identify that wonderful-looking plant, the Bugle! What a cracker! But I think I need to stick to birds! I loved the report, for many reasons...

Re: Two sunny days in Torridon

Was that a sea eagle too? I'm not sure as it was quite far away and rising. I'd like to think so as I've only seen golden eagles before but don't know. Thanks :) Hm, looking again that was wishful thinking on my part, fired up and enthused by your TR no doubt! It might be eagle rather than buzzard ...

Can't see Snowdon's crowds from Tryfan :-)

Last autumn, some Sussex walking friends wanted to walk up Snowdon and by chance, they picked a fantastically clear weekend to do it. That meant... Snowdon's summit was going to be heaving (ugh). Still, I'd not been up Tryfan and I fancied getting in some scrambling practice. So it was a good opport...

Re: Knoydart brings a smile back to Weasel faces

Wa-hey! You're back west :D Lovely report, and the sunshine on the burn evokes very similar memories of how it lifts the spirit instantly. I wild-camped around Rois-Bheinn and my legs were nearly dead by the time I pitched - not helped by a daftly heavy load as well as the steep ascents. Yet to walk...
