Re: A landmark achieved - Lochnagar

Great stuff!!! Lochnagar is a gem of a hill. Looks like you were alone on the mountain :D I was there on Sunday and it was quite busy. Had to wait by the trig point until all the other climbers were gone to take some decent photos.

Lochnagar - back in Munro business

After about a month and a half of climbing Corbetts and Grahams we finally conquered another Munro - and what a magnificent one! Sunday morning welcomed us with lovely sunshine and as we drove down from Inverness to Ballater it still looked good. I was ready for adventures :D The start/finish point ...

Carn Ealasaid - a nice leg warmer

Carn Ealasaid is an easy, flat-topped hill and can be climbed from two opposite directions. For advanced climbers it's a leg warmer rather then a proper climb. The route we took follows a good track from the start point to the very top of the hill. our_route.gpx Weather looked good when we arrived a...

Re: Winter's Over

Yes, summer's coming! :D :D :D And so comes the time for little black unwanted visitors attaching to our skin :shock: I brought my first one home from hillwalking on Saturday. We have to remember to ask them out as soon as they're spotted.

1 Panther - 2 Strathconon Corbetts - 3rd time lucky

The twin Corbetts Meallan nan Uan and Sgurr a'Mhuilinn together with their outliers form an interesting group of hills on the north side of Glen Strathconon. Outliers they may be, but as they are well separated from other mountains in the area, they are a fine viewpoint on a clear day. We have alrea...

Re: Mayar & Driesh............. £75 each

Lovely pics :D :D :D and an interesting route, too. Next time when a "coach tattie" comes to visit, take him/her out hillwalking :D My husband did that to me a long time ago - he took me to Torridon one spring and that was enough to turn me from a coach potato into a mountain climber. Not ...

Re: Ben Hope - in the shadow of national tragedy

Thanks for all the comments, folks... It was the most difficult report for me to write, with all the emotions surrounding that Saturday last year. Strangely, as I mentioned before, we chose the hill before we heard the bad news. As if something had told us to pick the mountain of hope for this parti...

Ben Hope - in the shadow of national tragedy

This is going to be a weird report, as it was a weird moment in history :? . It is not my intention to spoil anybody's day with long, boring lectures on international affairs :cry: . But with the first anniversary of Smolensk disaster in two days time, I felt I should make that little trip down the ...

Re: South West Coast Path 1

Ahhhhh Cornwall! My husband's home ground... There are so many lovely spots and viewpoints along the coast! Last year we spent 2 weeks in Crackington Haven and we explored Cornish cliffs, that means I explored it, my second half knows all these bits by heart. Nice to see familiar views again :D :D M...

Findlater Castle - somewhere over the rainbow...

The coastal walk from Cullen to the ruins of Findlater Castle is a magnificent scenic route. It combines some fine views, good spots for shell collectors and some lurking in dark dungeons as a final treat. Three more members of the D. family joined us this time :D There is a good path along the whol...

Fyrish Monument

Weather fronts have certainly been against us lately. Sunday was the only day off we had last week and... nasty clouds spoiled it all :( :( :( We didn't want to stay home though, so we drove up a short distance north to visit Fyrish Monument. It's an easy Sunday stroll for anybody. This time of the ...
