Re: Walking Companions Needed from the Central Belt!

Hi Gemma,

Is 36 too old????? :lol: I usually head out during the week cause I work most weekends. I usually get Tue, Wed and Thurs off every couple of weeks. Only prob is I have a walking companion who gets very grumpy if I leave him behind, my Border Collie, so hope you like dogs!

Cheers,

John.

The unpronounceable munro from Glen Etive

route1119156424.gpx The three on the west side of Glen Etive I have always considered an awkward three. To do them all in a day required a lot of distance to be covered over a long time, there was the option of doing them in 3 separate trips but that seemed like a waste of fuel so I settled on doin...

First Cuillin bagged (officially) - Blaven

Track_2016-04-20 135016.gpx I've been in the Cuillins before. I was at uni in my early 20s and was unaware of what a Munro was, nevermind the obsession I now have with bagging them! I remember a group of us came up to Skye and we hiked up to the In Pin, watched people climb it then turned left and ...

Re: SPRING WH GAIRLOCH SANDS HOSTEL MEET 8/9TH APRIL 2016

Big Tommo and I's revised, revised cunning plan is as follows (subject to further revision!) Get up the road on Friday once work frees me and maybe hit Fionn Bheinn on the way. Looks like we're racing the rain to the campsite so might cancel the walk to get the tent up in the dry. Maybe pencil in Fi...

Re: SPRING WH GAIRLOCH SANDS HOSTEL MEET 8/9TH APRIL 2016

Big Tommo and I are going to be able to make it, staying Fri and Sat night. Not sure on our arrival time on Fri as it depends on me getting out of work. Any room at the hostel or anyone needing a couple of bodies to split the cost of a wigwam? We are both fully house trained and tidy up after oursel...

Re: SPRING WH GAIRLOCH SANDS HOSTEL MEET 8/9TH APRIL 2016

Big Tommo and I have got the time off for this but we need to wait and see how my broken collarbone heals. It is giving me a target to spur me on at physio. No point in us reserving a bunk just now so if it sells out we'll head to the campsite.

Re: Magnificent MCD - day 3 of the WH Meet

Great pics and informative report. I had opted against MCD when I stayed in Torridon because I couldn't be bothered with the drive round to the traditional route. Didn't even know this was an option. Thanks for educating me :D

Re: Daybreak in the Mamores

I remember being quite chuffed getting up that huge slab of rock quite easily. Only to discover that the path didn’t got that way at all. :roll: Apparently some sort of path has now been established. 8) We're not the only ones that have went that way, there is a path of sorts now, more a collection...

Re: Daybreak in the Mamores

Thanks Petr. Definitely made up for my previous grey day but can't always have good weather. Was so glad I made the effort to get out early but that seems to be your speciality! Lol.
