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...

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.

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...

Re: Hi

Hi Susan The munros up around the ski slopes at Glenshee are some of the easiest. Good starting point for some high level walking (the chair lifts arent that nice to look at but if you pick a nice day you still get some fantastic long views especially over towards the cairngorms. Plenty wild hare ru...
