P.S. You were right about Beinn Talaidh. Pretty sure these will be Arrochar Alps you were seeing.


Cheers good to know! Thought it could be Arrochar :D Bugger I should have been paying more attention, I'd have got a much better sleep :clap:

Re: Kilmartin-Furnace Wildcamp via 3 Marilyns

That's a pretty impressive route with all sorts of interesting scenery. Fair to say I am unlikely to ever attempt it though! Some good views of Jura, Scarba and Mull at the beginning too :D . I'm sure I'll get up some of these at some point, although probably by more normal means :wink: . Some awes...

Kilmartin-Furnace Wildcamp via 3 Marilyns

- 17/08/2020 - 18/08/2020 - 10.25hrs (11.5hrs incl. day 2) - 27.6km (32.3km incl. day 2) - 1498m (1550m incl. day 2) I'd had this walk in mind for a few months as an easy 2-day bothy trip to do with friends, however with the MBA strongly suggesting against staying the night at any of their propertie...

Re: Beinn a'Bhuiridh

(does anyone else ask "why am I doing this?" only to start planning the next trip as soon as back at the car).

On this very hill a couple of weeks ago :lol:

Re: Little Conval

Those wee berries are Cloudberries (Rubus chamaemorus)! Apparently we call them 'averin' or 'evron' in Scotland but I've never heard anyone say so. I've only seen them ripe twice - once on Dun Rig at Peebles and once on Meikle Says Law in the Lammermuirs.

Re: Forlorn in Lorn

Also sorry to hear about your loss, Al. I'd had plans to do seven of these unreported hills last week in a big day outing but glad I didn't now as your report is a wonderful tribute. I'm sure the hills will provide some mental 'fasgadh' as they always do - best wishes.

A decent-sized day out! Can't believe my ascent was the height of a Munro :lol:

They might be small hills, but some great views by the looks of it.


Aye great views Pete - I'd recommend Cnoc Reamhar - a bit of a hassle to get to but stunning in my estimation!

Stob Odhar - Highest Point in Knapdale

Well I haven't written a report in almost 8 months, mainly for the fact that I've not climbed anything necessitating a report in all that time, really just climbing the odd already-well-documented marilyn or tump (the latter particularly during lock-down) but its good to see I can still bash one out...

Re: Hundleshope and other heights

A lovely walk that - we finished our horseshoe in Hundleshope too, which was one of the most scenic glens I've walked in in the Southern Uplands. That secret glen seems to be Glenrathope. Never got round to that area but Macbeth's Castle and Cademuir Hill still ask for a day out! That photo of Cadem...

Re: Ever been lost and how didyou get on (off?)

2016 I got lost on Arran attempting the Sannox horseshoe in clag. No map/compass but had studied the map a bit a few days before. Got to Goatfell fine, and had assumed that The Saddle to Cir Mhor joined at Goatfell, not North Goatfell. Eventually figured this out so summitted North Goatfell and join...

Re: Hello from Inverclyde

Been a lurker a while but hope to try to get a few walks in now, so it's time to bite the bullet.

Re: So where is the border of Cowal exactly?

The Great Cowal Wall of Skulls might finally get folk off the A83 - I wouldn't be complaining - might ease up Inveraray a bit!

Re: Drumelzier - Another Old Track Obliterated

That's really a shame to see - I'm glad they have at least kept it very low level, but hope they don't go too far up the hill with the forestry; it's a truly lovely spot. The plantation on Taberon Law is intrusive enough. There's never a decommissioning/restoration process for these tracks either, j...

Re: Cruach Tairbeirt - superb views and an Easter altercatio

Bit of an update r.e. the pleasant resident, shall I call her? Was asked if I was doing 'the walk', to which I responded "I am indeed, yes". She said that the parking for the walk is down by the restaurant, not here. I simply agreed with her and kept walking. Once back, I noticed she'd put...
