We followed the route from the parking area in Gl...

Blue skies on Bynack More

our_route.gpx Our Easter trip saw us hoping to finish the munros of the Cairngorm and Monadh Liath. As we didn't expect to arrive in the area until about 10am we decided on Bynack More as it was the shortest of our planned walks.

Meall Chuich no frills

our_route.gpx With the weather set to worsen later in the day I wanted to get up and down without messing about and start driving home. To that end arrived at the jump off point at 08.30 and followed the path along the aqueduct, past the pumping station and towards the loch. The summit was shrouded...

Fersit Five in a day

our_route.gpx For our annual mid-summer trip Neil and I were hoping to finish off the munros around Loch Treig as well as a trio near to Fort William. The week commencing the 19th of June saw most of the country basking in a mini heatwave, so I made a mental note to pack some sun cream (if only I k...

Wedding anniversary on Schiehallion

Having walked more than 200 of my munros to date with Neil I was to have a different walking companion for number 220. My lovely wife Nicola would be taking her munro total to 1 and putting aside her ambivalence towards the hills to celebrate with me a special event 28 years previous. For on Saturda...

Return to Glen Etive

our_route.gpx The last day of our Easter trip and we headed for Glen Etive to finish off the two we had not completed on our last visit to the glen a few years earlier.

Beinn a'Bheithir

our_route.gpx The first walk of our Easter trip to Glen Coe (and the first real hill for almost a year). Cold, with falling snow above 900 metres with poor visibility, so none of the promised views.

A quicky (or two) in Loch Lochay

our_route.gpx For our last walk of our summer (ha ha) trip we decided to go for something close to the bunkhouse we were staying at, and the Loch Lochay munros were right on the doorstep, and the fact that we didn't have a map wasn't a problem as the bunkhouse lent us a nice waterproofed 1:25000 ma...
