Tour of Kintail (Day 3) - the saddle without the ridge

After re-charging the batteries at the Kintail lodge hotel (a fantastic breakfast of smoked salmon) we set off with thumbs out on the A87. At the Shiel Bridge garage a car that had passed us a few moments earlier had stopped and the two lads in it offered us a lift, which we gratefully accepted (the...

Tour of Kintail (Day 2) - 5 Sisters and no lift

After a hard day in the sun yesterday this was another difficult slog in scorching temperatures; once again I was quickly out of water and dreadfully thirsty for most of the walk. our_route.gpx Our high camp the night before meant that it was a mre hop, skip and a jump to Aonach Meadhoin and a relat...

Tour of Kintail (Day 1) North of Loch Cluanie

A very short report to update my walks report for the year. On Saturday night we set off from the roadside along Loch Cluanie for Carn Glusaid. After the quick blast up Ben Challum earlier in the day, a heavy pack and some late afternoon sunshine the climb to the summit had me sweating and as I was ...

I'll leave it to you to write the next report as the funny man in the duo; although that makes me Ernie Wise or even worse Sid Little :?

Re: Snowdonia Meet, Swallow Falls, 21st-23rd October

I'd be keen to join you - I live in north Wales so could just drive up on the day. Any idea what routes you might be doing?

Re: Lochnagar on a sunny day.

Nice report and good to see the views I missed out on when I did the white mounth circuit the weekend before - I'll add this to my list of munros to do again on a clear day.

Mount Keen by Glen Tanar

To finish off our trip Neil and I decided to bag a ‘cheeky munro’ on the Sunday morning before the journey home. We decided on Mount Keen given that we were staying in Braemar and it would save having to make a special trip for this isolated hill on another occasion. In addition we had our bikes, wh...

White Mounth Munroes, Glen Muick

After getting back from the round in Glen Shee on Friday evening talk in the bunk house inevitably got round to the weather. The big storm that had battered America was due in the UK late Sunday/early Monday and it was said that this would be proceeded by extremely strong winds on the tops on Saturd...

Glenshee 9

Inspired by the fell race of the same name I resolved to try this as a fast and light walk (with a bit of jogging). Poor weather, some navigational errors and stopping en route to eat (a nice and healthy meat pie) meant that it took longer than expected (and significantly longer than the 3hours 30 t...

Mayar and Driesh (a wheely good day out)

Heading off to the highlands for our post-summer munro bagging trip Neil and I were not too optimistic for any chance to take in the views as the weather forecast was pretty poor. However, Thursday afternoon was supposed to be clearing in the east and as we were heading for Braemar we felt there was...

Tour of Kintail (Day 4) South Glen Shiel Ridge

After doing all of the munros north of the A87 over the previous few days, Neil and I had camped on the summit of Creag nam Damh on Tuesday evening. We rose at 6 am in order with a view to finishing the ridge nice and early so we could set off for home (North Wales) early in the afternoon. Although ...
