Re: The beginning of an era – the Bivvi era

Some really nice photos there. Glen Lyon especially. I can see the attraction of having a very portable means of surviving a night in the hills and the freedom it gives you but I will stick to having a shower when I wake up and not looking like a ready meal for those man-eating deer that roam the hi...

Re: There are days when you have to question your very sanit

Does not sound fun at all. Drinking enough water? Perhaps just the weather disorientating you. I have blindly walked down the wrong side of a hill before due to a cloud rolling over and had a head scratching moment when wondered why a lochan was nowhere to be found and I have also become fixated on ...

Re: Mount Keen and Driesh & Mayar

A pity you did not go up to Corrie Fee, best part of the area IMO. Not sure how conditions were but the path up the back of the corrie is a great way up.
