Re: Rain!

hello,
I wouln't fancy falling into that raging torrent.....looks like that any snow that's fallen has been sent down to the North sea in a different form.
Perhaps not a great deal of snow up at Gaustablikk above Rjukan?

Re: Grey Squirrel

Don't come across this type of squirrel in oor area..they seem all to be red. However the only time I saw one of the grey one was at nearly 800m. on a wee Ronnie in Galloway. Cairnsmore of Carsphairn. He must have followed the dry stane dyke up to the summit from the forest area below. Anyway when I...

Re: Ben A'an, suprise it was raining

Hello, A grand reminder of this fine wee mountain. We used to do some climbing there in the early '60s and since the climbs were on several tiers and arriving on a fine top with good views you kindof felt that you had ascended a proper wee mountain rather that just doing some single pitch climbing. ...

Re: Sgorr nan Lochan Uaine and Sgurr Dubh

Hello, Enjoyed your images of these two tops. The views of the two big Torridon mountains from the final summit viewing gallery are fine. I did not have a camera for this trip. I trod the track from Ling Hut many years ago for the two Munros a bit further out ..Beinn Liath Mhor and the 'red one'. I ...

Re: Time we had a Scottish Waterfalls Post!;-)

Hello MC,
I didn't realise that there were several grey ponies running around without tails.....your right this is the borders one with the next door Ronnie of Hart Hill...close to St. Marys Loch. So close to the english border that it does sound a bit North of England...maybe!

Re: Barrisdale to Inverie

A novel way to reach the hills!...and another taxi at the far end. It certainly gets around the big problem of a walk of this type where you end up a long way from the start...no regular Post busses here like in swiss-land! I think that you highland folks have a problem holding down the drink.....cu...

A'Chioch of Beinn Bhan

Re: Time we had a Scottish Waterfalls Post!;-)

Since I only 'get out' on dry warm days my falls are a wee be insipid compared to these fast flowing monsters!

Re: Arran

hello Paul, Confirm your words on Pagoda Ridge. I certainly had a rope on for this one albeit an old Viking rope....several decades back. From what I remember it's the first section bending right to left that has the 'meat'....I think it could be possible to miss out this earlier section but have no...

Re: Beware the bite by Beinn Mhanach

Hello,
There is never ever a boring hill...the views towards the Lyon side are fine....had better weather that you did. I do, also hope, that your dog does not develop a taste for the delicacy he seems to be eyeing up. :lol:

Creag Ghiuthsachan from Balnascriten track end.

Begin this short walk, after lunch or maybe evening in summer, at the hangmans sign........the Balnascriten track end. The track is becoming a bit more worn now after fading, on account of the growing plantation, but doesn't quite follow the exact line marked on the OS map. Pass a small lochan befor...

The only time that I have been that far down into Knoydart was in 1971 or 72 when we sneecked over Sgurr na Ciche stayed at Finiscaig with just half a roof in place then over to Kinlochmorar and into Pean Glen to stay at the Bothy further into...
