Re: Beinn a'Chaorainn East Ridge

Nice scramble and great pictures! I walked the "normal" route a bit more than two weeks before you did the scramble, and I saw the ridge you climbed up: https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48221755797_8d8c093485_k.jpg It looks quite difficult from this perspective, but good to know that it...

A Munro Duo with Suzi Quatro

20190608_ACTIVE LOG070332_Grafik2D.jpg Soon after I had arrived at Roughburn, two other cars pulled into the small parking area. A group of six disembarked onto the midge-infested roadside. They caught up with me pretty soon, while I was, not far along the track, still busy with remembering to swit...

Re: Sail Mhor: the Ugly Step

Wow, what a great report and fantastic photos. As an (ex) hobby pilot and aerospace engineer, I found your description of the plane crash very interesting. I'll have to check out your other reports about crash sites, I'm really curious now. :-) I can't wait to get to Beinn Eighe myself and see the t...

A glimpse into the Wild

For my first 2019 Munro walk, I chose the relatively easy pair of Stob Coire Sgriodain and Chno Dearg, which have the advantage of being right in the centre of the area I had chosen for this year's trip to Scotland: Glen Spean. I hoped to be able to get a good overview of the mountains I intended to...

Re: Long circular from Cairnwell: 14 Munros, 39 miles, 12 ho

Great report, fantastic photos and epic walk! It took me 4 walks to do all of these Munros, and you did them in 12h - wow! In retrospect, it is not the worst of ideas to include the White Mounth Munros in the Glas Maol Circuit. I started from the Spittal of Glenmuick, and the way to Lochnagar and th...

Re: Marathon & more: Fisherfield 6 in 1 day from Corrie Hall

Great report walk and pics, but I find it really sad that you wanted to rush round these gorgeous hills - especially with such fine weather and short nights :( . Why didn't you bivouac somewhere so you could linger on all the summits? Bivouac gear is so light - mine weighs only just over 1kg :D . W...

Re: Marathon & more: Fisherfield 6 in 1 day from Corrie Hall

Was für ein phantastischer Bericht. Da zieh ich mal den Hut vor dieser Leistung! :clap: But now back to english. Somehow I must have missed your report back in summer when it was published so I reply now. I know all these mountains myself and have been there on 2 occasions and therefore I admire an...

Re: Marathon & more: Fisherfield 6 in 1 day from Corrie Hall

A breathtaking report! :clap: I hoped for some assurance but now I am even more scared :shock: , but I think I'll try anyway. It's not a picknick, but it isn't impossible either. And it is very, very rewarding. :-) If you know your capabilities, go for it - you still have Shenavall as a possibility...

Mount Keen - Invasion of the Zatapathiques

After the soaking wet day on Mayar and Driesh the day before , the weather forecast for the day finally was accurate. No rain and good visibility promised a nice day out in Glen Mark. Again, Mrs Zatapathique accompanied me. Mount Keen would be her 4th Munro and my 50th. We left the car at the Inverm...

Re: We watched the airwaves over Eaval

I know a Runrig quote when I read it - nice report! I have never been to the Outer Hebrides, but they are on my list of must dos, and not only because of my relation to Runrig.

Weeping skies after Runrig's farewell

Runrig's farewell concert in Stirling gave me the chance for a second trip to Scotland this year. I was one of the lucky guys to get two tickets for the very last show on Saturday August 18th - although I almost had a bad conscience about this, given how Germans and Danes outnumber Scots at such eve...

One More Ascent in Assynt

For my last hike of my 2018 Munro trip to Scotland, I originally wanted to go up the four eastern Fannichs. I got up early and was at the parking north of Torrandhu bridge at 6:30 a.m. The weather forecast had announced thunderstorms for noon/afternoon, so I watched the sky distrustfully and set off...

There and back again - Seana Bhraigh

$matches[2] While the car park at Inverlael bridge was full the day before, it was now empty but for one other car in this Thursday morning. I followed the same track as for my Beinn Dearg hike until just behind Glensguaib, where I took the track to the left. I was going at a quick pace without loo...

The Munro swing of Lochan Uaine

After a well-earned day of rest to restore my forces after the Fisherfield "Marathon" , I was eager to get back into the hills, and the plan was to tackle Beinn Dearg and its three neighbours Cona' Mheall, Meall nan Ceapraichean, and Eididh nan Clach Geala. The weather was still very beaut...

Re: Walk Report Winners - July

Thank you so much for awarding the July walk of the month to me! I feel quite speechless, as I'm a relative Newbie here and English is not my native language. Thank you! Congrats also to Stefan1 - such amazing sunset photos, the colours are like out of this world, simpy wonderful, and nice animal ph...
