Loch Kernsary from Poolewe

We took the walk anticlockwise from the car park alongside the river hoping to see views of the river and loch Maree. We should have packed a chainsaw as this section in densely wooded. The walk is pleasant along good roads until you get to Kernasary, the area around there is nice with good views to...

Loch Kernsary from Poolewe

We took the walk anticlockwise from the car park alongside the river hoping to see good views of the river and loch Maree. We should have packed a chainsaw as this section in densely wooded and views were few. The road turns North away from the Loch into open moorland with a couple of stands of pine...

Maol Chean Dearg & Beinn Damh

$matches[2] Yesterday the Balach na Ba was enveloped in low cloud so the intended target for the day, Beinn Bhan, was put on hold. So we took a leisurely drive through Applecross, stopping at Sand for Ben to do some bouldering on a large outcrop which has at one time been occupied by prehistoric ma...

Re: The Pass of the Stags route up The White Mountain

Anne Thank you for another great report. This route was on our to do list this year but it was clag bound when we came over the pass (coincidentally we ended up doing Maol Chean-dearg from Annatt instead - highly recommended). We were hoping to drop down Coire an Fhamair and scramble A'Chioch back u...

Re: Binnein Mòr and Na Gruagaichean

We tried the route down between Na Grauhaichean and Am Bodach last week and it seems to go on forever but is relatively shallow. The views of Am Bodach are great but you lose most of the views of the Lock which occur on the other route. The difficult bit is the 1041 top NE of Na G, which loomed out ...

Re: Skye-grilled

Enjoyed the report. 23 years ago we stayed at a cottage on the Loch shore near Luib; it was my son Ben's first holiday. Everyday i looked up at Glas Bheinn Mhor thinking i'd do it the next day. The weather turned rank so never got to go. However Ben and i walked Garb Bheinn and Marsco in 2019 and ha...

Buachaille Etive Mor (with raven)

On the last full day of our week in Scotland the weather improved. We’d driven down from Torridon the night before having walked Ben Eighe in low cloud and drizzle. The day broke cloudy but with the promise of something better. Parking in the Devil’s Staircase layby (another off-day for Old Harry?) ...

Re: Curved Ridge and Crowberry Tower (Front)

That was great thanks, I've now added to the to-do list.

How long was you round trip to complete the scramble?

Re: Aonach Eagach

Thank you Angus

in truth there are stretches of the walk i don't remember as i was concentrating on the problems in front of me. I'd love to do it again but there are so many hills and not enough days.

I hope you get back there.

Aonach Eagach

In my later years I thought I’d talk up mountain walking in earnest, in preparation for retirement. Apart from a solitary Corbett in 1995 I’d walked mainly abroad on holiday. In 2018 my son Ben and I hiked around the southern slopes of the Sierra Nevada (Spain). In 2018 we tried a couple of the easi...
