Re: is my munro bagging all over

I've been thinking about this and came to the conclusion that winter could be the most rewarding time of the year for doing munros, however it's one thing getting the gear but another thing getting some knowledge. So a winter skills course is a must for me, but had the idea that if enough WH member...

Re: Oh Deer! I'm Not Taking A Bullet For A Lyon!

unlike some members of the forum I don't have a microlight (did I spell it properly Frogwell?) at my disposal, Yes you did. Have a banana. :) You should get one you know. A microlight that is, not a banana. Well, a banana too, although it's of less value transportation wise. Possibly only marginall...

Re: An Caisteal, Beinn a'Chroin - Bog, Snow, Bog

Thanks for all the comments :) Would love to see photo of you cowering behind a rock. It would probably rival the one of me wrapped around a boulder near the top of Sron a Choire Ghairbh trying not to get blown over in a gale! One of the benefits of solo walking - no witnesses! Fantastic pictures, w...

An Caisteal, Beinn a'Chroin - Bog, Snow, Bog

Another day of mainly non horrible weather? We are being spoiled. I had a few routes printed off but decided on Beinn a' Chroin and An Caisteal. Picking my potential hills late the night before, I actually had those hills and Cruach Ardrain and Beinn Tulaichean on the list. If the weather had been b...

I'm way too cheap to fork out for a wide angle I'm afraid. They're just stitched panoramas.

Toyota Prius - a car that needs to be banned for the effect it seems to have on it's operators. Without exception, every Prius driver I have seen has obviously decided that it doesn't matter how bad their driving, how erratic, as long as they drive really slowly. they're saving the environment you ...

Beinn Dorain and Beinn an Dothaidh

After what seems like three years of miserable weather (well, you get what I'm saying), the forecasters all appeared to agree on good weather for Friday. There was no way I was going to spend it sitting in the office, so Thursday night I made sure boots, rucksack, poles etc were all in the back of t...

Re: Ben Vorlich and Stuc a'Chroin

Thanks for the comments :) I'd best not make too much of your hilltop fashion there rockhopper. In 1987 I'd still have been sporting tight stonewashed jeans and long hair. I didn't fall into your modelled fashion until 3 or 4 years later. Oh nice pics FW!!! Could you see your house from the top?? PS...

Ben Vorlich and Stuc a'Chroin

I had hoped to start my walk early on Saturday morning but was unable to escape work until late morning. Turned out to be a bit of a blessing really as the morning was quite wet and windy and it turned into a fantastic afternoon - couldn't really have asked for better weather. Nice temperature, just...
