Re: Mamores.

Steve Fallon has some details. http://www.stevenfallon.co.uk/mamores.html Regarding Grey corries to The Ben. Done it in two bits - Walk up Glen Nevis(boggy!) and then back along the grey corries(superb). Not done the link to the Aonachs. Aonachs to CMD is very steep grass, not technically hard but a...

Re: OS-style maps - for France

As you've already discovered IGN is the mapping of choice. Easy to get hold of out there.

Re: Glen Strathfarrar- the "Locked Gate"

Assume you've seen this? http://www.mcofs.org.uk/strathfarrar-access.asp

You can always park before the gate and cycle in.

Re: Completing 3 or more Munros in 1 day options

Other options near glenshee include the lochnagar circuit and the munros on the east side of the ski centre.

The 6 at Drumochter are doable in a day if you want to really go for it!

Re: Best month: June or August to visit.

You mention climbing, do you mean rock climbing or hill walking(hill bagging)?

June can be good as the midgies aren't at full strength yet.
Matters less for the WHW than climbing when its very lonely on a midge infested belay!

Re: Most Bizarre Thing You’ve Seen on a Hill..?

Found this very odd. Container rattled so I don't think it was ashes.

Re: Car park sat nav or road atlas

Another option that I use is to do a bit of research for prominent landmarks. Google streetview is really good for this, especially those slightly non official bits where you park just off of the road.
If walking from Drumochter, all the laybys are numbered :)

Re: Youth Hostels

Would echo prog99's comments on Glen Affric (Alltbeithe) and add Inchnadamph to that list. Both have immediate access to any number of hills, not only munros. There's immediate access from Inchnadamph to Ben More Assynt and Conival, with Quinag, Breabag, Glas Bheinn and others in close proximity. I...

Re: Youth Hostels

I visit a fair few , pricey for private rooms compared to the competition although they do make your bed for you. Expensive wifi, most independents are free. Decent ones I've stayed at are - Glencoe, excellent kitchen but can be noisy during ski season. A handy finish for the Aonach Eagach! New path...
