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.

Re: Wild camping between Creag Mhor & Beinn Heasgarnich

Bear in mind as well that if using an older guide book you can't park at the high point of the road any more.New parking just before Kenknock.

Re: Descent route from Sgorr Dhonuill and Sgorr Dhearg

Last june we did the descent as described below its not as unpleasant as it sounds -
continuing west along the ridge to small lochans above Coire Dearg and descending a very steep and loose gully into that corrie, then a path through the forestry on the west side of the burn.

Re: Stiles on Ben Challum

Many thanks, I'll have a look at the route. I should be able to haul my collie over a waist high fence, though I'm not sure he'd be amused by an electric fence!! Its quite nice with some optional (but entirely by passable) scrambling as well. You are less likely to see folk too until on the summit....

Re: Hare today, gone tomorrow.

Indeed, best bit of news for a while.
I've been on an estate when they've been culling the hares and the body count is pretty shocking.

Re: Rescue needed?

We were half way down to the glen from Beinn a'Chroin when it started to absolutely lash down. We thought "awk it'll be fine, least we've got a straight route back to the motor". I don't know if it's possible for interminable to be an understatement :lol: Its not great is it but it is wel...

Re: New Coronavirus Law

e Scotland got hit by a deep low pressure system last week which dropped a fair bit of rain. If they are lighting fires on the shoreline and the shoreline is sandy or rocky (i.e. minimal vegetation), there will be minimal chance of igniting the surrounding landscape. Unfortunately conditions on the...

Re: Descent from Sgurr Fhuaran down WNW ridge into Glen Shie

If your reason for looking for an alternative route is to miss walking on the A87 I'd thoroughly recommend heading along the Affric - Kintail Way to Glenlicht House then heading up to Bealach an Lapain (there's a path most of the way). Slightly longer day but allows you to start and end basically a...

Re: Alpkit Pipedream 400 Sleeping Bag

Hi, I have the same bag. It'll fit in the small nylon bag for transporting around but don't store it in it.
It doesn't look like it'll fit but it will.

Re: Denfinella's lockdown birdlife diary

Not seen so many in years. A bit far out for us (we have got up that way on one occasion). We haven't...
