Strolling Down the Lairig Ghru

It was the weekend of the WH Braemar meet and a chance to catch up with like-minded mountain folk. Leithy Suburbs had whipped us all into shape and even arranged some cracking weather :thumbup: Walkaboot had suggested the Lairig Ghru as a wee warm up on the Friday - I was in and Corrie dog was too. ...

Re: Mayar and Driesh, but Corrie Fee is the star

What a beautiful description of my favourite Corrie (after my dog Corrie of course!) :thumbup: I never tire of seeing that view of Corrie Fee as you emerge from the forest. I've lost count of the number of times I've climbed these hills but Corrie Fee keeps drawing me back for more. Both Munros are ...

Sunshine, Showers and Scary Ducks!

Deuchary Hill is one of my favourite little hills, climbed many times with Corrie dog often taking in Loch Ordie. But Loch Ordie has nothing on Lochan na Beinne. This hidden gem is much less frequently visited and is a tranquil spot in a stunning location. Today we decided (or, to be honest, I decid...

Re: Summer Meet, August 10th-12th

I'll switch to camping :thumbup: Hey Paul, no need. I've just managed to find a dog friendly B&B so the bunkhouse will be dog free :D Corrie's such a big, hairy thing she was bound to get in the way anyway :lol: Dougie - if anyone has not yet paid for the bunkhouse and you won't be out of pocke...
