Re: Ben Hope - celebrating my 44th munro

Getting above the clouds like that looks amazing. The type of day you have weatherwise can really change a summit.

Re: Kilometres

https://ukma.org.uk/the-case-for-change/problems-arising-from-two-systems/walking-and-cycling/ A bit of information on how long it has been the case for OS maps at least. Personally I never really visualise distances anyway so someone saying a mile or a kilometre does not necessarily help me and in ...

Re: Good Munro For Beginner Close To Aberdeen?

Forget the whole Munro thing and go to Ben Rinnes as a started. It is steep but with a good path and has some great eroded rock formations on it.

Re: walk

Was down that way not too long ago. It is quite a nice area looking in certain directions.

Hopefully, the trees are done better than some of the other plantations. Like the one directly across the road from where you were.

Re: Monamenach - an easy local corbett

A very beautiful glen, but quite a steep hill. Coming at it from the north west was pretty tough going.

Somehow dogs always find something to roll in. Although I think I will leave the bathing in the water to them at this time of year.

Re: Which Munros are in the Cairngorms?

Hi,

The region part of walkhighlands might include Ben Alder but it does not actually fall inside the national park boundary.

You can find the boundary on google maps, and it is also displayed as a yellow line on some of the maps in the gps planner part of this site.

Re: Can I 'claim it' dilemma?!

I was thinking of mentioning my first munro which was Ben Avon. It was sunny but incredibly windy and no way was I going up no rock in that weather to claim the "true" summit. Across to Beinn a'Bhuird and do you really need to touch the summit cairn to say you have climbed it. It is not ex...

Re: solo hillwalking

Can't say I go out alone for any soul searching, more just I like the views it offers and I dislike groups. Voluntarily going out for hours at a time with others would just be odd.

Re: Landslide near Loch Quoich dam update.

I was looking into that area last year but the snows came so I put it off, guess I will mark that area down for 2020 then.

Re: Dalmunzie Bridge

Good, I made a circular route of Glas Tulaichean a couple of years ago and only then realised that there was not a crossing. Had to just wade through the river. Loved the setting of Loch nan Eun at the top of Glean Taitneach, so might head back.

Re: First Wee Stretch of the Wee Legs

Certainly got the weather for it that day. Was there a couple of weeks ago and low cloud and high wind prevented me doing your original route or any route. Back in 2017 I tried to cross over from Loch Lee but too little daylight hours to cross the distance. Also there are is a double electric fence ...

Re: No snow?

Felt sorry for the mountain hare I saw in its winter coat. Camouflaging it ain't. Practically no snow in the Monadhliath Mountains.

Re: Bongo makes it to Braemar-MacDui and Carn a'Mhaim Bike H

You are a brave man going down to Carn a'Mhaim from Macdui even going via the stream. I went up the way not using the stream and those wobbly rocks at times were nerve racking. The stunning views help but not the most pleasurable of experiences.

Re: Boggiest Hills?

Yes, now that I think about it you are not wrong. That wide gash in the ground at the bottom.
