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...

Re: Green Ospray waterproof cover

I lost one of these...back in Nov 2018.

On Beinn Leoid.

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...

Horses not zebras

The telling of this tale (and its title) start with the events that occurred on the day before the walk took place. The clocks had gone back on the previous Sunday, and the forecast for the Monday was cold – hard frost overnight – but dry and wall-to-wall sunshine. Game on! With the precision of a m...

Pennan Explorer

The good news is having the freedom to take advantage of late deals! (I should probably unsubscribe from all of the emails that tempt and tease with cut-rate, off-season, outwith-the-school-holidays offers.) The bad news is that I really miss my fuel card. ( :lol: but really :cry: ) I’d booked a cot...

Lovely autumnal venture at Victoria Bridge

Just a quick recap, and a few photos to get this one doc’d before I set off again (by the time I return home, I will have forgotten all the details! :roll: ) We set off at 8:30am. I’d already regaled Jimmy with the tale of my first foray up these hills, with Evie a few years ago, on the infamous “MW...

Short and steep

I was driven toward Glen Etive by the spectre of no fewer than seven—SEVEN—hydro plans that have been approved by Highland Council; construction on which may be starting in early 2020, in spite of some rather important logistical and engineering issues apparently having been not yet considered or so...
