Re: Is this ben nevis I seen from the fyrish monument.

My top tip on this subject is when photographing what is a possible long line of site is to take a few non digital zooms on your camera and apply some post process contrast adjustments. You’ll be amazed at what can appear out of the haze at times.

Re: Is this ben nevis I seen from the fyrish monument.

Definitely the Ben. I'd be very surprised to see it that distinctive from that distance in real conditions, unless you had crystal clear blue skies and an Arctic airmass in winter. It is over 70 miles as the crow files, which is about the distance to the horizon from an observation height of 1200m....

Re: Beinn Narnain/Ime v Ben Vorlich/Vane

We've done the Vorlich/Vane duo from Ardlui. Not one for the inexperienced as its a big & rough day out with plenty of pathless terrain to negotiate. You need to be a bit careful coming off of Ben Vorlich down to the dam (a few crags to skirt past) However it has its charms... you get to go thro...

Re: Aonach Eagach after Curved Ridge

Although slightly harder curved ridge doesn’t have any significant down climbs. I’ve seen folk freeze on the first descent off of Am Bodach.

Re: National Park and Forestry car parks fiasco.

I only saw one Forestry Commission car park shut this weekend in D&G(probably becauseit had a visitor centre & mountain biking). Everything else seemed very much open with no off putting signs.

Re: Affric Kintail way

It’s always seemed like an odd one with the long bits of tarmac.
Glen Affric to morvich is good though. I’ve been along most of it at some point or another.

Re: Mayar and Driesh via Glen Prosen

Been up these from Prosen as well. Nice enough approach and we also saw owls.
Not sure you’d be so welcome in the grouse season though.

Re: Ben Lawers path advice

As per Mark and Dave. The hydro track is the best way for the full circuit. Its surprising how few people consider it, I guess the high start from the NTS carpark must sway things.
