Re: Creag Bhalg - Then a bit of a wander!

Sounds an enjoyable walk. It's only this last year that I've really got acquainted with the southern Cairngorms but a lot of these foothills have pretty good views, this one being no exception.

Re: Sgoran Dubh Beag

More great dawn shots which make the midnight start worthwhile!! I was climbing a Graham from Linn of Quoich early (for me - not you!) on the morning of the 1st and it was hard to get decent shots as there was such a haze. I've never been on top of a Munro at dawn but seeing the colours in some of ...

Not bad at all but more interesting than spectacular.

Sgoran Dubh Beag

When I walked up Carn Eilrig last November it struck me that the line of cliffs around Sgor Gaoith wasn't the only dramatic looking feature overlooking Loch Eanaich; the crags extend a lot further north than I'd realised on my first visit to Sgor Gaoith in 2014. However, I wasn't thinking about that...

Moray

Presumably Moray moves to level 2 tomorrow? If not, does that mean the only permitted way out of Aberdeenshire to the west coast is via Braemar?

Re: So how busy was it?

Beinn Odhar Bheag on 23rd April only a van in the layby but didn't see anyone on the hill. Van still there on return.

May 15th empty Talisker Bay car park in the morning and no-one else on Preshal More or Preshal Beg but car park full on return.

the cow, the crow, the squirrel and the dunking moorhen

This was a day when I fluffed my lines somewhat. I'd thought of climbing one of the Munros south of Braemar but had set off way too early and spent an hour waiting for the rain to abate which, needless to say, didn't happen. I'd imagined the forecast clearing of the sky being visible on the horizon ...

Re: Hill of Tillymogan

A good wee hill. Took me three goes to get to the trig point though. Haven't been up this way so might try it some time to make a loop; I've previously parked at / started from the old church at Kirkton of Culsalmond.

Re: Stac Pollaidh - Nemesis No More

Good to read of so much enthusiasm and enjoyment from a walk, especially when you have vertigo and a cold and showery day to contend with too.

Re: How did you stay fit during lockdown?

That's an interesting video, litlj. It's known that it's possible to overtrain if someone seriously overdoes it. If somebody has decent base fitness and no underlying health issues, I don't think there's anything wrong with going as fast as possible for short intervals, eg sprinting, burpees etc. W...

Re: How did you stay fit during lockdown?

Last year March-July we had decent weather and we live in the countryside so local low level walks were plentiful. Indoors I would use my wife's treadmill on bad weather days, just for a ten minutes jog and occasionally joined my wife for one of her recorded fitness programmes, the most intense (but...

Re: broken window reveals shower curtains

at least you got a view of the buttress. First time i went round there - early 1960s - there was only a vestige of a path when you left Coire Dubh Mor. now i see it has been made up with steps - How things change :shock: Yes, was a pretty easy walk. I think the only other time I've been was in the ...
