Paths, where we're going you don't need paths....

Track_2017-07-08 191058.gpx The wife and I had looked at our calendars a while back and saw our summer weekends off together quickly filling up. We quickly booked off this weekend and one in August for some hill walking / chilling time. The plan was to get a Hobbit Hut somewhere and go "off gr...

Re: 3 boring Beinns from Linn of Dee

You have an unusual outlook on life if you think these hills are boring but then I see you went for the swift tick on Beinn a'Bhuird There's not much unusual about that. The swift tick, quite often in poor weather is probably the norm. :( I think if you find these hills boring and the cairngorms bo...

Totally agree on the forests Mrs Santa. Could've spent the entire day in there exploring.

Re: 3 boring Beinns from Linn of Dee

You have an unusual outlook on life if you think these hills are boring but then I see you went for the swift tick on Beinn a'Bhuird which misses out one of the grandest corries in scotland. Each to their own Prog99. I much prefer scrambling around the western Munros than trudging over moors. It's ...

3 boring Beinns from Linn of Dee

Track_2017-06-17 182008.gpx This weekend was supposed to confirm Big Tommo and I as true Mountain Goats by completing the Mullardoch 12 in a day.

Meall Chuaich - A worthwhile quickie.

Track_2017-05-26 145416.gpx The original plan for Friday was to head up to Laggan for Creag Pitridh and its neighbours however work, as ever, got in the way and an 11pm finish turned into a 1am finish so there was no way I was getting out of bed for 6am. I only had one day free this weekend to go d...

Re: My Fisherfield humiliation

Great report, pictures are amazing and those huge slabs of rock are something else! I would be one of the ones totally missing out on that and just doing the round but now I think I'll need to factor that in when I eventually get up to Fisherfield. Everyone has had a trouser malfunction at some stag...

Lee and I's better halves had already pointed out the colour coordination! :lol: Think we need to talk wardrobes before we head off for our next WH weekend.

Re: Two vegans up Meall Buidhe & Stuchd an Lochain

Good video and pics. You might be fighting a losing battle with the healthy lifestyle thing though.
