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...

Re: Mount Keen from Glen Tanar

I've not been either way but that's a good advert for the Glen Tanar option. That suits me as it is closer but looking at the map I am surprised that it is Glen Tanar that wins the vote -just that Glen Mark looks topographically interesting.

Sgurr an Utha

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ngH0oIM4cic&t=9s Was originally headed for the south side of the A830 but a phone call to the estate cast doubt on that; I'd forgotten to check re. stalking in the area and the only confirmation I could get was that stalking was taking place but to call another nu...

Any A82 diversion at Inverness this weekend? If so, is that via Beauly to head south?

Re: Driesh & Mayar, return via The Scorrie

Yes, a couple of years ago I'm sure I would have ascended that way, but unfortunately I've developed a heart issue in the meantime that's cut the limits of the reasonably possible by a factor of about 3. Scrambling I find more straightforward, since one doesn't have a planned distance to cover, and...

Surely a scorpion / garden snail hybird doing a handstand? Fine scenery anyway.

One man's short trip is another's sweaty struggle but, yes, good views!

Re: Dess Waterfall from Kincardine O'Neil

Tried this walk out today (21-09-2020) with my wife and small dog - took a very leisurely 2:41 hours to complete the 8.12km. The route shown here is c/w, with an easier ascent to the loop 'tangent'. Thank you litljortindan for the post that assisted us in making the decision to try this pleasant wa...

Sgurr an Airgid

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yQZVG-VvsVE Didn't want to miss out on the nice weather but also didn't want to have too long a walk on a forecast windless day so picked Sgurr an Airgid based largely, it has to be said, on the glowing report given it by Rodmeister. This was a partial error on my par...
