A damp and colourful autumn around a flooded island

For some reason neither of us could remember, Moira and I had never done the WH circuit that takes in Dunglass Island. Talk of much mud may have been it, but there comes a time when even a potential mudbath isn't enough to deter from pastures new and we wanted something local with car sharing not be...

Birthday celebration in the cloud up Glen Tilt

Ruth had a significant birthday coming up. Due to covid we had cancelled our planned walking trip in May and tentatively rebooked for September around the time of her birthday. But as the time came closer it looked less likely that plan would sit nicely with tightening restrictions as it involved ca...

Re: The Milk Run

My milk run isn't as exciting as yours with no Highland cows and only the occasional roe deer that doesn't stand nicely for photos. 8)

Re: Glen Falloch twice and honestly loved it

Thanks for the report, only have passed the place on my travels to the north or west. To read a report make an unkown place more familiar so that I will remember it next time I am looking for walks. To be honest it's probably better done along with An Caisteal, but done alone I found it fine to do ...

Re: Coast to coast : dawn to dusk

How hard it is to lose our beloved hill companions. I also remember Cul Beag with mixed emotions as Jack and Tess were with me the day I did it. But we need to hold on to those great hill days they had and that we didn't let them suffer at the end. I'll never forget the enthusiasm of your two boys w...

Re: Glen Falloch twice and honestly loved it

Very enjoyable and interesting report dogplodder - I've got Beinn a Chroin still to do too and hope to finally do it this year via the route you used. Will be referring to your report again once we are out of lockdown here in Glasgow! You got some good photos too, despite no views at the top. Thank...

Re: Glen Falloch twice and honestly loved it

Some lovely moody photos here, shame about the weather at the summit, I remember a great view down Glen Falloch right to Ben Nevis. Had to laugh at Keira, she was such a savvy young hill dog in the Grey Corries, but perhaps you're right, she's a good weather walker, just like us :lol: :lol: She's d...

Re: Unexpected Grey Corrie from Glen Nevis

Lovely report and pictures, including the canine variety. I cannot wait until I can do this sort of thing with Luna. We are both straining at the leash! In "normal" circumstances, my mind would now be turning to planning big days with her over the coming spring months and kick starting he...

Re: Candle in the bothy

Some are left unlocked for genuine emergency use but the MBA stance is they shouldn't be used for non emergency overnight stays and let's face it, it seems the majority of bothy visits are for the sole purpose of drinking beer by the fire then walking back out in the morning! :lol: I certainly woul...

Re: The hills of Glen Orchy: views to the left of them ...

This looks a great round but doesn't bode well for a simple out and back to Beinn Achaladair which we have left to do... Will have to try to go after a dry spell. 8)

Glen Falloch twice and honestly loved it

As for everyone else, 2020 was for us the year of the great cancellation. It was the year of our Golden Wedding and my brother's 70th and from March through to October we had four short breaks and two weeks of holiday booked with family or friends.... all cancelled. :thumbdown: But we still had a we...

Re: Unexpected Grey Corrie from Glen Nevis

Thank you for a lovely day and for writing it up :clap: :clap: I was so glad to have the opportunity to walk this route with you, since you gave me the idea and chances to meet up were so rare last year, not that this year is looking good so far :( . I was going to suggest the route that Sunset Tri...
