Re: Bennachie

Hi Shelal, Bennachie is a great hill! If you want something a bit longer, try climbing from the Don View carpark at NJ 673190 and climbing Millstone Hill first before descending to the Heather Brig between Mllstone Hill and Bennachie, then up to the Mither Tap. For the return you can descend back to...

Re: First footing on the Correen Hills

Well,it was free of rubbish and, under the circumstances, pretty dry....

Given the construction is quite erm, flimsy for the site it's amazing that the place is still upright. Good to see that it hasn't been vandalised too. There are worse about! :wink:

Kind Regards

First footing on the Correen Hills

New Years Day, bright and cold - just superb for first footing a couple of hills. A bit of a cheat this, as by adding 20 minutes walk to and from the start at Terpersie I did the walk from my front door :wink: http://i466.photobucket.com/albums/rr29/ianj2008/DSC_0003.jpg Looking up from the Esset Bu...

Re: Last sunset of 2012

Thanks skuk and lochlaggan - a very happy 2013 to you both. Hi Giles - we must have been just about looking at each other on Hogmanay! When I got to the top of Hill of Millmedden I thought that the sunset wouldn't be anything but a pale, grey affair. Looking west though, the cloud was clearing at ju...

Last sunset of 2012

http://i466.photobucket.com/albums/rr29/ianj2008/DSC_0021_zpse2b9d775.jpg Just a short walk to Hill of Millmedden (Correen Hills) above home to watch the last sunset of 2012. Wherever the sun set on the old year for you, have a healthy and happy 2013..... Happy New Year! Kind regards Ian

Re: The second best way to enjoy Christmas turkey?

Hi gmr82, This was the fourth or fifth time I'd been up Geallaig :D It's a super hill for a short day - best done in good visibility so you get to enjoy the views. The going is indeed good, there's a track right from the start at Braenaloin which climbs almost to the summit, then another which goes ...

The second best way to enjoy Christmas turkey?

Boxing Day was a clear, bright and cold day in the north east of Scotland - a perfect day to walk off the Christmas dinner! http://i466.photobucket.com/albums/rr29/ianj2008/DSC_0042.jpg We chose Geallaig (erroneously marked as "Geallaig Hill" on the OS maps). A relatively short climb with ...

Re: Wild camping in the Fort William - Rannoch area

Great idea mountainstar - it would even be perfectly reasonable for a group to choose to present their report via a forum whatever the Aim of the venture had been. For Mulligrubs - my post above and the one on the "Vehicle Access" topic probably come across as grumpy and negative - they're...
