Re: Rescued from Carn nan Clag

Probably prudent to move camp despite the obvious cow hearding skills depicted in your first photo! Useful report along with the discussion it has provoked as I will hopefully head there in the not too distant future though I am waiting for weather that will enable me to write a report titled Beinn ...

Re: Malky and the mystery of the Pink Map

Well done, looks a lovely area, big heathery messes aside.
Could that memorial be a memorial to all those who visited relying on their oink map?

Re: MacGillicuddy Reeks

Report removed. Hello just about to read your report and realised been removed, I wonder if you still have a copy of the report could PM me? Thank you Sunny It's probably on his blog .A great shame he removed it, as not everyone wants to go hunting round the internet. I used to have the address, bu...

Creag Dhubh

Like a few other folk I seem to have recently upped my game in terms of actually climbing hills, or at least walking amongst them. See, the pandemic is not all bad. Seeing a hint of a decent forecast that I might hitherto have dismissed I picked out Creag Dhubh as a possibility. However, I did have ...

I agree!
I was going by the forecast to try to ensure decent weather which worked. Wasn't too bothered about what walk I then did but very pleased with where I went.

Re: Druim Eadar Da Choire

Nice way to spend a morning even if a fair way to drive. Good to see some wildlife too with the heron - cheers :) Would have carried on to Marsco if the weather had been a bit more convincing and the ground a bit drier but still a good destination in itself. Lots of birdlife at Loch Ainort. Surpris...

Re: Three Corbetts and two high camps in glorious Knoydart

A lot of walking. I visited a couple of those hills during a visit to Inverie highland games about twenty years ago so good to make a vicarious return. And good improvisation with the hat and map. Get it patented. No more fumbling for the OS map when you can simply roll your eyes upwards.

Druim Eadar Da Choire

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=evaJKFoxLE0 Pleasant short walk with good views all round. A continuation to Marsco either via the 489m hilltop or by contouring round definitely looks feasible for anyone interested. A bit of a boggy start but a good path emerged after twenty minutes of squelching. A...

Re: Ben Stack

It's a fantastic hill I think.
Four hours for Ben Stack would suggest Arkle would be fairly easy for you too I would have thought.

Re: Beinn Alligin not so alone!

Four hours is pretty fast but it's a long time for someone to wait in a cafe for you! Possibly my favourite Scottish hill so always interested to see a new report. I'd probably agree with you about the east-west traverse being better but I was actually just thinking of the views. Mind you, that is b...

Re: Sgurr an Airgid in September

I was there last month too and was also struck by the relative wilderness looking north towards Torridon but my eye was mostly drawn to the Isles and to that towering view over Loch Duich.
The wee white houses are beautiful but probably beset by wee midges in the summer!

Re: Ord Ban (sub 2k) and circuit of Loch an Eilein nr Aviemo

I think I will take the ladder approach if I go here. I think if I brought my wife up through a battle with tall, wet bracken there might be some sort of unpleasant incident upon seeing the well trodden path so good to be forewarned!

Re: Autumnal Wanderings with Grand Views

Interesting to see and excellent views, particularly across to An Teallach and co. I was actually contemplating a similar walk on 29th August but chickened out because of the light drizzle and went to Silverbridge instead. Also, I hadn't realised that the coffin road headed that way and had been put...
