Re: Binnein Shuas

Would echo comments above, some lovely, warm late autumn colours - cheers :)


A surprisingly good day. I got lucky with the cloud as it was firmly lodged on some hills where others were clear.

Re: Binnein Shuas

Wow, you got some great shots there - lovely light and colours! It is also possible to make a steep ascent right under the main crags on the SE side by following the climbers' paths from the end of the loch and up a heathery ramp to the point where you took the shots looking down (at 2:38 in the vi...

A bit of broken cloud often makes things more interesting I think. Timing wise, my error in the morning got me to the lochanside at just about the right time so it all worked out well.

Binnein Shuas

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_JnMCzHOAy0 Started the day by wandering along the wrong track but did get some nice reflections in what the map names as "reservoir" rather than part of Loch Laggan. Looked at the map and decided I might as well keep going but then ran into a dead end with ...

Re: Top Ten Scottish Hills

Here's a top ten off the top of my head but also with a go at explaining why. I don't know how to or haven’t bothered trying to separate the quality of the hills from the conditions on the day(s) there that may themselves have left an impression so this is a list of hill days as well as hills. Just ...

Re: The sun shines on Arkle

Good hill & report. I was there in 2001 during the foot and mouth outbreak so the hill brings back memories of another strange time but also of a fine ridge and views. Always interesting when the cloud is undecided about what it's doing and where it's going, even better when it decides to clear ...

Re: A-Hoy there - magical day with the old man & special end

Excellent! And perfect timing for sunset at Rackwick Bay. When I climbed Cuilags I had thought of adding St John's head but there were too many bonxies and they meant business so a good time of year to go there too imo. Some super photos, especially from the cliffs north of the Old Man looking back ...

Re: Beinn an Oir - A Slog in a Bog!

Great report! Had a similar struggle with the boggy section but in our case it was mainly on our way back to the car and in the dark. I also recall the excitement of getting to the top of the same ramp and the view north. We were a bit luckier with the summit ridge and views but I don't think that m...

Re: Norway's Highest Mountain - the Giant that is Galdhopigg

A shame about the hurry but some great photos and at least you got your ten minutes of contemplation later on.
Have you read Slingsby's book on Norway?

Re: Carn Eilrig

Some cracking pics there, from what is obviously a great viewpoint. Brought back some memories too, mainly of the very long and slow ascent from Einich to Sgor Gaoith with a full 2 day pack!! Thanks, it is indeed not a bad viewpoint. Didn't go with any great expectations so nice to get good and int...

Re: A meander in the Cairngorms

Don't like the sound of ascending on all fours through deep heather and boulders but aside from that fantastic. Your photo of Loch Eanaich from the north is the sort of thing I was hoping for but didn't quite get from Carn Eilrig. Also interesting to see some of the lay of the land between Carn Ban ...

Glad to be of service! No, not a bad view at all.

Carn Eilrig

Didn't feel much like walking but thought I ought to do something with the fine weather. https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/pw/ACtC-3d04Q_Y0rez-DLEVJdnKi9cuNi-h9j3Is9VtI-2GRAVNXDx8PMHx0vd5YbsJDOq-ZQcK1MZPKztcwz4A6RcS9WhYvsWwsvHrxNBOnE0wyUl194ndeS5Be4arlm0DFuiZhsC42-Co8uGvJUoeIbzp0ntvQ=w876-h657-no?au...
