Whats a HuMP?? :lol:[/quote] "Marilyns have a minimum drop (reascent from another Marilyn) of 150m on all sides. They were supplemented in 2007 with the HuMPs (Hundred Metre Prominence) which reduces the minimum drop to 100m. There are currently 2994 HuMP" http://www.biber.fsnet.co.uk/data...

Cuillin ridge - what is realistic?

The gf bought me the dvd of Mountain by Griff Rhys Jones for my birthday, and whilst watching the episode where he climbs Bruach na Frithe I started getting ideas about planning some trips to the Cuillin ridge next year. I was just wondering, from the people who have been there, what is realisticall...

Re: Cycling to Beinn Bhrotain?

Dear Mountain Coward, P.S. I dont suppose you know of the cycleability of the paths to Monadh Mor from the Glenfeshie side? Was up the Sgor Gaoith and Mullach Clach a Bhlair just last week. Doubt the Allt Fhearnagan is cycleable but you could go further up the glen (theres a couple of river crossin...

Yup, and thinking about adding the Munros and Tops, Corbetts and Tops, Grahams and Tops, Donalds and Tops, Marilyns, HuMPs, Murdos, Hewitts, Nuttalls, Buxton & Lewis, Deweys, Wainwrights, Birketts and County Tops!

How sad am I!

Re: STRATH.....WHOAAARRRAR four at nessies house

Tarmac! Really, I had no idea....no excuses now then.

Do they let you camp? Whats the deal with cyclists? Sounds ideal for a cycle-camp-walk-cycle weekend. Hate cycling next to traffic......Maybe I should just phone the people, I'll let you know when I know. :D

Cheers for the info

Re: STRATH.....WHOAAARRRAR four at nessies house

Excellent reports and pictures on here Doogz! Entertaining reading. I have a question.. Whats the road along the glen like? Is it passable with the average car or is it a road for 4x4s. Just realised how close these hills are and only really been put off by the private road and track you see on the ...

Re: Wreckage

Although I'm amazed that there's no mention on there of the Canberra wreck that I visited near the summit of Carn an t-Sagairt Mor a few weeks ago. It crashed in January 1956 and substantial wreckage remains (wing and engines). It is on the site http://www.aircrashsites-scotland.co.uk/canberra_c-t-...

Ben Hope - Summer Solstice

Does anyone know if this is fact or fiction? and secondly has anyone done it..got any pictures? (Was thinking about doing it this ye...

Re: Some advice, please

Hey there I'm from Inverness. Wyvis is to Inverness what Ben Lomond is to Glasgow...ie the tourist hill. So for a first Munro its perfect as you will probably not be alone. I agree with all the above advice- if you get a clear day you can see loads and it will definatly wet your appetite for more, i...
