Re: So where is the border of Cowal exactly?

Great answers everyone. Hadn't noticed the 'L' overshadowing Beinn Bheula before, but I had also been under the impression that Beinn Mhor was the highest in Cowal - and the RaBT really does not feel 'Cowally'. Just from the Wiki, I cant see any of the Ardgoil Peninsula hills described as being with...

Re: So where is the border of Cowal exactly?

Glad to hear it's not just me :lol: That line seems the most sensible if we're talking as the crow flies. I think the wiki mentions Lochgoilhead as on the border, but the Cowal Way ends at Inveruglas which I'd say is well within out with the peninsula!

So where is the border of Cowal exactly?

Would like to know where most people would define the NE border of the Cowal peninsula, as I don't believe there is an exact definition. To me it can only really be the B839 Hell's Glen Road or the Rest and be Thankful A83 in Glen Croe. Some would even describe the whole of the Arrochar Alps as bein...

Re: More wee hills, thanks (McMole)

Good to see a report of these two - I never got round to Mochrum Fell but it looked like a lot of fun weaving in and out of the conifers. You took just about the same route as us up Killyleoch too, fab little hill; that little lochan you spotted is still one of the most photogenic bodies of water I'...

Re: Daftest thing you've done whilst on a hill..

Probably my consistently foolhardy insistence that I don't need a sleeping mat that badly, or that I don't need a map because I'll no doubt have 4G on the phone once I'm up there. The former has resulted in some awful night's sleep and the latter has put me at risk of death a few too many times. For...

Re: Corse Hill

This one's on my to-do list this year. Probably take the alt route for some added interest! (P.S. Have stayed well clear of Cardwell but enjoyed seeing those photos - Greenock does have some advantages over Gourock :wink: )

Re: The Dun Rig Horsehoe - Sort Of...

Nice one Chris, these seem a breeze to you now! That was a massive day out all the way to Deer Law and you made it look a doddle :shock: Surprised at the bogginess at this time of year and how massive the sun looked as well. Wish I'd been on a hill when we had those couple of great sunrises. Just re...

Re: Binsey at last

Congrats! Binsey is on my radar next time I'm down LD-way. A pointier summit than I'd thought!

Re: Holiday on the buses

Ah the 101! In the handful of times I've been on it it's never been more than perhaps a fifth full :lol: The start of that walk in the glen looked really very scenic - I regret not taking that route when I went now.

Re: Invasive Species

Classic SNH I'm afraid - right thing to do, done immorally. Beech is native to S and W England and Wales. As beautiful as it is, it has never been native to Scotland and I would advocate for it's removal when the trees are still young. It is so rubbish to see it planted as you can tell it's been app...

Re: Two very different wee hills, more jungle photo's

Good to see Bengairn again in similar awful conditions like we had it :lol: Great effort on Bainloch Hill too, that was looks much more arduous than when I went up! Can't wait to see your reports for the 4 you've got left just W of Dumfries!

Re: A murky day out from Lanark

Brave stuff! Had no idea there was a road south of Goseland Hill - a pretty steep ascent it looks too :shock: Have nearly climbed it twice but always chosen something else. If it's only 12 minutes up I might be back :lol:

Aonach Eagach: L-R or R-L?

Planning on doing the AE at some point next summer - ideally was looking to include the Pap at the end of the walk - but thought I'd rather enjoy the ridge from its best side, whichever that might be. What are folks' experiences coming from the Ballachulish side vs the Three Sisters side? Apologies ...

Re: Cruach Neuran & Sgorach Mor from Loch Tarsan east dam

Cruach Neuran is a particularly nice hill - might give it a go at some point - but Corradie and Cruach nam Miseag (which you've both done reports for) are first and second on the list. Did my report on Sgorach Mor a couple of weeks ago and I was blown away by the views I got. I think your way up was...
