Sunshine on Bynack

With the weather forecasts suggesting that the only place worth being was the NE corner of the Cairngorms, it seemed a no-brainer to head up to Loch Morlich and tackle Bynack More and Creag Mhor from there. The initial plan was to take in those two hills before dropping down to the Fords of Avon and...

A Lyon Loop

our_route.gpx Having just returned from uni for my spring holiday (I don't think I'd be justified in calling it an Easter holiday) I was looking to get out in the hills before all the remaining snow disappeared. Unfortunately this was not to be the case as I discovered driving along Glen Lochay thi...

Re: Where's the picture ? - Scotland (part 2)

Wild guess - Conival and Ben More Assynt from somewhere to the north (Beinn Leoid perhaps)?

Re: Finally! Corrour to Spean Bridge overnighter

What a great report, inspiring.

I think I'll spend the rest of the day obsessively planning multi-day trips that will inevitably never come to fruition.

Nice one Malky.

Re: A pre-Christmas cracker

How lucky were you with your weather? I was up there yesterday in a total whiteout with no views. My first winter munro. Quite an adventure. How I wish our views had been like yours. That would have been the icing on the cake. However I'm glad I could look at your photos to see how fantastic it was...

Re: From ditch to cairn in Glen Clunie

Cheers for the comments guys. I was chuffed with the way the day turned out too! I'll try to go for 2 days of hike near from Braemar and Aviemore next week. Do you think that there is the same amount of snow at Aviemore than on your picture? Even if the walk is easy, crampons are essential? If yes d...

From ditch to cairn in Glen Clunie

A brief respite in the strong winds this week provided my last opportunity to get out in the hills before heading back to uni, so my plan was to head up to Glen Ey and do one of my last remaining Munros south of Braemar - Carn Bhac. As it turned out, this was not to be! I left home at 5am, hoping to...

Re: A Spittal sunrise (almost)

Cheers for all the comments guys. 5am is my usual time to get up if i want to walk. Did start the Tarmachan Ridge one winters morn at 4am and reched the summit as the sun cam eup - was splendid. 5am is reasonable I guess, particularly at this time of year. Think I'm going to try and make more of the...

Re: ROUTE ADVICE

That route up Ben Sgulaird's a nice ridge walk, although surprisingly tiring - it's easy to forget how much more effort it takes walking from sea level rather than starting at 400m altitude! Just be sure to find the path at the very start of the ridge (I ended up wandering half way up towards Coire ...

A Spittal sunrise (almost)

It had been my intention this holiday to get up to height to watch a sunrise. Ben Gulabin seemed a perfect candidate - a really short walk with a great vista, particularly down Glen Shee to the SE. So it was that I was kicking myself for forcing my body to get up at 5am - I was pretty impressed that...

I wish! Unfortunately not. I can't wait to get over to that area though.
