Re: Sutherland, Assynt and May - part 2 of 2

A great part of the world. Ive been up there a lot recently. The ridge to the south top of BMA is fantastic. Hopefully you get another chance to do it in good weather. Even if the weather wasn't the best it still looked like a great trip. There is a plane crash on Ben More Assynt also which is actu...

Re: Sail Mhor: the Ugly Step

Really interesting, thoughtful and moving report. :clap: I don't think I'll ever try the Ugly Step solo, but your description, even with camcorder photos, is really helpful if I ever try it in company. (Kevin resorted to knee - that alone makes me nervous!) :shock: Did do a bit of a double-take when...

Re: Hadrian's Wall in 2 long days and 7 short days

Really enjoyed this and well done on the "new body"- losing four and a half stone's seriously impressive. I loved all the little details of things like the spooked feeling from the sycamore, the happier effects of open space and sky above, the contrasts when you hit road and town, finding ...

Re: Nantlle Ridge - Moel Hebog round ... repeated

Lovely and entertaining report :clap: . I don't know the Nantle Ridge, but totally see why the Gilbert photo drew you there! Wow. Some of your route sounded pretty terrifying, but it also sounds as though your shoulder's behaving which is good. Absolutely love your pics of the full ridge, really bea...

Re: Suilven abandoned - Time for some Munro Misery ;)

Memorable days are made of that. Thank you for donning the steamin' hurty boots and managing to give us a giggle. Hope boots behave better before Switzerland. I was up there in 2017 with a really reliable weather forecast which predicted storm early afternoon, and sure enough, I watched it rolling i...

Re: Sutherland, Assynt and May - part 1 of 2

Your photos brought back memories :D Beinn an Eoin especially, and "the naughty tor" :lol: ... I saw too many reports of Beinn an Eoin being climbed as a sidekick to Ben More Coigach and missing this fantastic extra ridge...! Once we were strolling along the ridge of Scaraben in Sutherlan...

Re: Sutherland, Assynt and May - part 1 of 2

LOVED this - entertaining narrative, and so many great pics - a big attraction for someone like me who hasn't yet got that far north. I especially liked the rock strata in 043 (SSE over Loch Dionard) - and this time it was clear enough, even to these semi-functional eyes, that I wasn't looking at s...

Re: A Day on Canna

Says it all when you say "I often think that Scotland is so achingly beautiful it is impossible at times to put into words." Magical photos. Tim Absolutely, though, Anne, your words were utterly transporting! Helped by gorgeous pictures too :wink: Glad you gave yourself such a treat after...

Re: Wainwright in Sutherland

Thanks for posting. Really good to see these few bits of Sutherland so unpopulated. And "glittering quartz bonnets". Nice. Though I particularly enjoyed Dr Penny's "please don't" at the faintest suggestion of Wainwright writing a guide book to the area. Can you imagine getting aw...

Re: High Street - where eagles once ruled the skies.

Enjoyed that and loved your photos. Brought back lovely memory of a similar walk last August, up Riggindale Crag and round Blea Water to High Street, then down over Harter Fell (ravens and wheatear coping with man's dominion). But... pub with no draft beer - just... why? :wtf:
