(not) Double dipping in Tyndrum

It was meant to be a double dip—the Grahams Meall Odhar and Fiarach are, under normal circumstances, probably each too short an outing to warrant separate drives. I’d long had in my head that I could do them both in a one-r, once the days got a bit longer (nb: although some of the hearty/hardy have ...

Windlestraw Law circuit

After what seemed like an endless stretch of some of the most foul weather in (my Scottish) memory, I was itching to get out. My “2020” walks folder is depressingly thin! We met in Innerleithen a few minutes after 8:30—I was a bit late—having to stop to fill my skoosher, then again to clean the wind...

Yes, ma'am, right back to you then! :clap: I wasn't sure whether it'd be a tricky one or not.

Fyne-ly back to the hills!

(Ha—you—and you know who you are—are not the only one who can make bad “Fyne” jokes!) We were meant to meet at Lomond Shores at 8:30, but David was late. I’d not been up a hill for more than a month; it’s been at least several years, if not more, since I’ve had such a long break. It’s been the weath...

It couldn't possibly be...could it? :lol: :shock: :crazy:

Does the one you found look as though it could have blown a couple of hundred miles? :lol: :lol:

One Graham short of a goal...

When G got in touch to see if I was up for having a walk on the last day of the year, I originally suggested Stob an Eas and Cruach nam Mult, on either side of the B839 in Hell’s Glen, neglecting to mention that I was secretly harbouring latent hopes that I might still be able to reach 50 (new) Grah...

Christmas in the NW

I’m having a hard time finishing this entry. I’ve captured the general gist, and the statistics, but I can’t get too excited about adding much detail. It was a good week, but my overall mood was a bit…meh. Not bad, not sad, just…meh. It probably wasn’t helped much by being frustrated by short days a...

Double dipping in Amulree

It was the only reasonable forecast for the entire period (two weeks) the BBC weather app shows; the only choice was where to go. My options are limited; damn my eyes (yes, again). Google map said 1h:37m driving time to Amulree, and because it usually overestimates, the plan was a 7:30am departure, ...

A frosty Pentlands romp

A lovely walk that was doable on a short winter day for both Jimmy and me (although he had to drive a fair bit further, to be fair). I was late!! I hadn’t counted on my skoosher being frozen, and having to stop three times to clear the windscreen. We set off shortly before 9am; it was a bright and v...

Aviemore more more. And then some more!

I’d booked a self-catering place in Aviemore for the week of my birthday. But toward the end of that week, I was having such a great time, and the weather was rather cooperative, so I arranged to stay for a second full week. “* There’s * your silver lining (with regards to not having a job),” says m...
