Re: Beinn Achaladair & Bien a Chreachain

Hope you get a better day soon. They are cracking hills - as the ground falls away looking over Rannoch Moor and you get one of the widest mountain paoramas anywhere in Scotland. And for my money you did it the right way around. I'd hate to be coming down the bog fest of a path up Coire Achaladair a...

How in the name of all things 8o ish did this not make it to the shortlist of the recent STV Programme "Scotland's Greatest Album".........and yes I am taking the p*%s. But in anticipation that the supposed "public" vote will result in the answers which STV want (i.e. the Jesus a...

Re: is my munro bagging all over

I have a ritual most years. I borrow my mates crampons. 4 years later I have had 4 winters thinking I shall buy my own set. I go around various retailers and have arguments about whether my boots can take crampons successfully. By the Grand rules of compatability Handbook - they can't.(Raichle Scout...

Re: Beinn a'Chreachain but not Beinn Achaladair

2 of my favourite mountains for the way the ground falls away in front of them - as per pic number 41- so you can see right up to Nevis and the Grey Corries.
Glad to see the snow is still the soft walkable type.
Lovely report and some top pictures

Re: Cairngorm wanderings - another brick in the wall

Really enjoyed your walk report, Kevsbald and especially the 2 pics of the trees in the landscape. The fungi looked amazing -though I know nothing about them. As one person has already put in a Floyd pun, I don't feel so bad about saying your report deserves a "meddle". Forgive me, that wa...

Re: From sunshine into darkness on the big grey hill

This was the best type of report for me. As long as I have ben walking the hills - not that long actually, just 6/7 years - I have had my eye on this mountain and Sgorr Ruadh in a day. I found your report really enlightening about the terrain at the ridge of Beinn Liath Mhor. It looks a lot more acc...

Re: A bad day

I know how you feel guys. I went up these 2 (the other way around from you folks) in April 2007. It was fantastic, great view way up to Ben Nevis, Grey Corries etc and Dalwhinnie and the Cairngorms. So goo I twice led walking groups up there since and had to navigate in clag, clag and more flipping ...

All hail to the people who went up, I believe during nightime to survey from these Trig Points and All hail to the people who trugged cement up mountains, hills, bog and yes into Maryhill Park,Glasgow to build these wonderful things - the last site is surely the scariest of places to site a trig poi...

Gore Tex patches

I sustained a tear in my waterproff Marmot jacket the other day - sadly not on a 300m grade 3 scramble but just brushing it against a corner post at the Kirkhouse Inn,Strathblane. Although it is quite small I am overconscious of the tear growing. Does anybody have any experience of those Gore Tex pa...

Re: I Kissed a Cairn and I Liked It!

Joly good report. I remember that big rock with the grass growing on the top. And like you I remember it as the wettest walk I have ever...ever been on. That trudge back through the glen seems endless. Would have posted earlier but had to wait till my mum had gone out lest she see a photo of a lady'...
