Beinn Bhuidhe

our_route.gpx Very humid all day. Midges a problem in car park, thereafter not so bad. Good streams and paths. Fine views of the west, but slightly spoilt by clag - need to return. Met just one couple on walk in, surprising for the Arrochar Alps on a fine summer's day. Cooling rain on descent which...

Ben Vane, Beinn Ime + Beinn Narnain

our_route.gpx Another hot and humid day starting fairly late (1000?) for some reason. Didn't bring enough water and running low by descent from Ben Vane. Eventually found some on ascent to Beinn Ime. Lots of sheep though. Long walk in. Bit of a scramble up to Ben Vane requiring all fours, potential...

Re: The Lord giveth - faith rewarded on Gleouraich and Miala

Graeme, if you'd delayed your journey by only 9 days (and brought some binoculars and knew exactly what time to be there), there's a tiny chance I could have waved to you from the South Glen Shiel Ridge :D :

Re: Memorable Monday morning in Assynt

Alteknacker, thanks and absolutely, now chasing the next one! (concerned about post-282 life already… what will be the fix then?) Mal Grey, you're welcome. Yeah, I'm a convert too to the far NW. I know it's Munro-bagger's blasphemy, but even considering going back up there just to walk the smaller o...

Re: West Etive round on a spectacular day: h-Ulaidh to Sgula

Ahh, mid-March 2016… That was special. Glad someone else is prone to the amazing-weather-induced silly grin. It strains my facial muscles though, having to smile all day, more so than the calfs etc that are actually doing all the work :? But a 7 hour post-epic-walk drive?! That sounds like the harde...

Re: 4 Eastern Mamores

Personally, Kenny, I would never go up the hills when I was legless ( :lol: ).

Was that one massive group of walkers that you saw or is that just normal? Never been up that way.

Re: Great day to reach 100th on the Orchy 3

Congrats on the ton + 1 james! And beautiful labs, they really off-set their surroundings in those shots - plus they must be great companions too, obviously :lol:

Re: The Cairngorms in a complete whiteout

litljortindan said it the best, very Shackletonesque! Was there this February in similar conditions but aborted before even getting up Carn Ban Mor. Tried again in March and got the unicorn of winter walking conditions all day long - firm pristine snow, utterly blue skies, beautiful sunshine and low...

Memorable Monday morning in Assynt

Hi all. This was another awesome experience in Sutherland. The impression of desolation of this place was made all the more so by the lack of human interaction and the eerie absence of wind - so quiet. Weather conditions were not set to be perfect but the morning would see enough visibility to make ...

Re: Awesome solo ridge walk to mark 100

Hope you get the views in May, GillC. Having been driven most of the 9km back to Cluanie by that farmer, the majority is uphill, so defo one to plan ahead. Mal, thanks, but I can't take any credit, the photos take themselves on a day like that :) That's cool Peter! What did you do for your 200th the...
