Geal-charn Mor

Pollen and stronger wind to the east and south plus cloud and wind to the west and north meant I was looking for an easy walk somewhere in the middle of the country. Geal-charn Mor seemed to fit the bill. https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/pw/AM-JKLVdVntM9GhApCkEKKGF3DbQJiTCd75Jt5UsGBmbcRRcTrmY0SGxQ0...

Re: Western Black Mountain (Western Leg)

Bannau Sir Gaer looking magnificent. Went there a few years ago from the east just based on it looking good on the map and it was not a disappointment.

Re: a battle of Glenshee

Shame about Glenlochsie :( I found a picture of the building in my library: glas tulaichean 009.JPG Good vistas from the top, we did Tulaichean in pouring rain... Somehow Kevin talked me into adding Carn an Righ, climbing the second Munro was easy enough, but the return route was hell: bog, peat ha...

Re: a battle of Glenshee

I'm surprised your worried about your hill fitness - you do a fair amount of walking! Assume from your map you chose to start in the village and walk up the road to the hotel rather than using their car park? It's a shame to see that the roof of the ruin has caved in - didn't realise it was a gonne...

the big water and the shop keepers

Not been feeling 100% so went for a walk that on paper looked straightforward and manageable. All I would have to do is plod along following a path. Of course, I would have to arrive a bit too early and ascend to a Moruisg summit partially veiled in cloud. Fortunately that did not descend into a tes...

Re: Creag Bhalg - Then a bit of a wander!

Sounds an enjoyable walk. It's only this last year that I've really got acquainted with the southern Cairngorms but a lot of these foothills have pretty good views, this one being no exception.

Re: Sgoran Dubh Beag

More great dawn shots which make the midnight start worthwhile!! I was climbing a Graham from Linn of Quoich early (for me - not you!) on the morning of the 1st and it was hard to get decent shots as there was such a haze. I've never been on top of a Munro at dawn but seeing the colours in some of ...

Sgoran Dubh Beag

When I walked up Carn Eilrig last November it struck me that the line of cliffs around Sgor Gaoith wasn't the only dramatic looking feature overlooking Loch Eanaich; the crags extend a lot further north than I'd realised on my first visit to Sgor Gaoith in 2014. However, I wasn't thinking about that...

Moray

Presumably Moray moves to level 2 tomorrow? If not, does that mean the only permitted way out of Aberdeenshire to the west coast is via Braemar?

Re: So how busy was it?

Beinn Odhar Bheag on 23rd April only a van in the layby but didn't see anyone on the hill. Van still there on return.

May 15th empty Talisker Bay car park in the morning and no-one else on Preshal More or Preshal Beg but car park full on return.
