Bynack More

Very open walk up over the moor, seriously windy the day I went. Long steady climb which gets a bit steeper towards the summit. Good view...

Pleasant walking up through the trees and then it opens up to moorland. Nice steady climb, little pockets of snow and ice, a bit cloudy. Come to...

Little Conval and Meikle Conval

Beautiful sunny Friday in February. Just me and Jessie. Parked at Dufftown Golf club - loads of space. Walk along the road a short way. Fab display of snow drops up to Little Conval first - keep heading straight up, I strayed to the right hand path and this fizzled out so we had to hop the heather t...

Ben Wyvis

Cloud all the way unfortunately, great walk by the river, being August the Bracken was high and very wet and midges about. Out on to open ground and then starts the steep bit, very steep load of steps for a good part of the walk. When you think you've reached the summit there's another half an hour ...
