The Notched Ridge at last - and in glorious sunshine, too!

The Aonach Eagach, and its two Munros, have been a bit of a Problem for me for some time now :? - basically, the issue has been that by the time I'd gained the confidence to maybe have a wee look at the famous Notched Ridge myself, everyone who I go walking with had done it years ago :roll: . Howeve...

Affric Outing Day 3: The Brotherhood!

This was Day 3 of our grand choir outing to Glen Affric, based at Alltbeithe Youth Hostel. After two very wet days of walking, the forecast was looking much more promising for Wednesday 23rd May, so phone alarms were duly set for 05:30 a.m., we hauled ourselves out of bed, finished off Malcolm's tin...

Thanks! Aye, always look on the bright side of life, as they say ... I can honestly testify that we never saw a single midge for three consecutive days on this outing :lol: !

Affric Outing Day 2: Mullach FC One, Bearsden Choirboys Nil!

This was the second day of a planned three-day Munro-bagging extravaganza to the remote Alltbeithe Youth Hostel in Glen Affric. Having successfully gotten the remote group of three hills to the north of the hostel (Sgurr nan Ceathreamhnan etc.) ticked off the previous day in pretty rotten weather, w...

Affric Outing Day 1: Mullach nan Dreich, et cetera...

Another Bearsden Choirboys' outing this one :roll: : at the interval of one of our rehearsals in early February this year, Malcolm had mooted the idea of booking up the remote Alltbeithe Youth Hostel in Glen Affric for three nights sometime in May, with the aim of making an attempt on that remote gr...

Re: Almonds are a girl's best friends :)

An intriguing route that, BP, and fantastic sheep photos too :clap: .
This looks a much more interesting way of bagging the Corbett than the usual approach - I'm tempted to have a look at this route myself now - definitely worth the extra effort in terms of distance (and ascent), I'd say!

Re: Jings; the Scotsman's corrie in New Boots (but old panti

Enjoyed this - I set off with this as a plan but it didn't quite go to plan as yours did as I picked a stupid route up the first hill and then carried all the way along the ridge to Starav, because why not :lol: :lol: You cannae beat this area on a good day though, absolutely love it :D 8) Thanks, ...

Tom & BHK versus the Volcano: Binnein Beag & Sgurr Eilde Mor

Tom and myself both still had the two Easternmost Mamores to do, Binnein Beag and Sgurr Eilde Mor, and with a reasonable forecast for the Sunday 6th May, we thought we'd give them a whirl. I was just back from a week in Alicante with Mrs Bobble Hat, however, and having done nothing much more than ov...

Jings; the Scotsman's corrie in New Boots (but old panties)!

With apologies to the late great Ian Dury for the WR title. I've had the 21st of April earmarked for a walk for some time, and with the weather forecast looking unexpectedly promising, I thought I might try to get a Munros outing in; the first of the year for me. I still had two in Glen Etive to do,...

Making a meal of the Mealls: Amulree Grahams at 2nd asking

I have to confess that I didn't half make a meal of these two Mealls, which must be two of the easiest Grahams in the book :lol: ... For this WR, I've combined an unsuccessful first attempt on 7th January this year (nary a Graham bagged due to Snow Issues :roll: , but at least a few nice photos) wit...

Mountain out of Molehill? Carleatheran from Todholes

I rather unexpectedly found myself with a free weekend day and a good weather forecast :D , but we were going out for dinner so I couldn't go far afield... and after a rather punishing week at work, I couldn't summon much enthusiasm for an early start in any case :lol:. Having managed to get Stronen...

BHK & Gromit in "The Wrong Shoes": Stronend from Todholes

2018 hasn't gotten off to a great start for me, walking-wise: it has been a bit of a Bad Snow Year, and I'm not really much of a winter walker :? . I attempted my traditional January Detox Grahams Outing on Sunday 14th January, aiming to bag the two Amulree Grahams Meall nan Caorach and Meall Reamha...

Re: Bhac to the Future!

An excellent, entertaining and informative report, thank you. And definitely best title pun of the month; do we need a sponsor for a prize for this too? Thanks for these kind words, and sorry for the rather belated reply. Yes, painful puns in WR titles do seem to have become a real Walkhighlands tr...

Bhac to the Future!

I'd earmarked the middle weekend of October for a walk some time ago - which of course inevitably meant that the weather would be crap :roll: . Plan A had been to tackle a couple of hills at the east end of Glen Shiel (a'Chralaig and Mullach Fraoch-Choire) with Tom, but the truly dismal West Coast f...
