Ben Alder and Beinn Bheoil from Culra

2013 05 26 Beinn Bheoil and Ben Alder.gpx Woke on Sunday to cloud hanging low on Ben Alder - a bit of a disappointment after Saturday's blue skies - but at least it wasn't raining! We had originally planned to head up to Ben Alder first, but M had the (in retrospect - brilliant) idea of reversing t...

Carn Dearg - a Culra quickie

The day after our Seana Bhraigh epic - when we should have been recovering / seeking counselling - found us instead heading off to Ben Alder with some friends on a two night camping trip. The weather prediction was for a good day, a middling day, and then a rather bleugh day, in that order. Enthused...

We really did - I don't think I'd even have traded them for your trampoline!

Seana Bhraigh from Oykel bridge - and the Ridge of Doom

8h 34m; 42.8km total (31.2km cycling; 11.6km walking) Our week at Ullapool was drawing to a close and Friday had a not-too-bad forecast. It was a toss-up between Seana Bhraigh or the circuit of the Deargs, but the fact that we’d brought our bikes up with us settled it. Drove from Ullapool to the hot...

Sgurr Breac and A’Chailleach – adventures in the clag

The sunshine on Am Faochagach on Sunday was not to last. The weather on Monday took an evil twist, so we waited until Tuesday’s forecast of cloud – but no rain – before heading to the hills again. The two western Fannichs were beckoning us so we headed off early (for us), setting off from the reason...

Am Faochagach – rivers, grouse, a hare, and a dead bee

We had decided to spend our annual ‘guess the weather’ week in Ullapool this year. The drive up on Saturday had taken us through torrential rain, so things were looking good for another award winning week of stunningly crap weather. We were particularly pleased to note that the forecast sunshine on ...

Re: Half dozen round of Ben Alder for first post

BTW, sincere apologies to the occupants of the tents nearest to me, I'm sure the sight of my bare ar*e while I was washing was not what you needed when you were having your dinner! It's nice to be able to put a name to the ar*e! I think the 7 of us passed you on your way down Carn Dearg (near the t...
