Black Panther takes the Scalp

At the beginning, apologies for me being so late posting my August/September reports. This is the first of them; another six are yet to come, several of them including visits to plane crash sites. Hopefully I will find time to write them all up. I'm so overloaded with unsorted photos that my PC is c...

Re: Ben Tee from Laggan Locks by bus

We did this route twice in winter conditions, looks a whole different world with lush vegetation!

I remember that dilapidated stile, I almost broke my leg trying to clamber over when it was covered in ice... I see there is an easier way through now, just as well :wink:

Re: Cruach Innse and Sgùrr Innse, 2 corbetts by the Grey Cor

We also have a Corsa but we never slept in it :lol: :lol: A bit too small for two :wink:

I'm looking forward to repeating the Innses, maybe even this autumn (if weather is kind in this direction). Stob Ban is on our list for a full winter traverse. Hopefully we get a decent winter this year.

I have a screw loose

Mullach Coire nan Geur-oirean not only has the longest name on the Graham list, it is also one of the least convenient 2000ft hills to climb. At least for us it was. If doing a multi day traverse, one could combine it with Gulvain or the surrounding Corbetts, but for a single day trip, it is a long ...

Just trying to be original :lol: :lol: If I called it "Carn na Braebaig by bike", nobody would bother to read it :wink:

In the electric mist

I'm so far behind with my reports that it's scary. My life has been so hectic recently that I couldn't get around to writing them up, hopefully I'll have more quiet time at hand soon. In the meantime, a short story about one of the bike and hike Grahams we ticked off in late July. Carn na Braebaig i...

Re: Facing some fears in Torridon

We were on Sgurr Dubh and Sgòrr nan Lochan Uaine on Sunday, fantastic day (well, keds were a bit annoying)! I remember being very reluctant to climb the Carls last year since Kevin kept teasing me it was a horrifying scramble. Turned out, I absolutely loved the experience. Glad you did, too :D Nothi...

Unsuccesful Hu(n)ti(n)g

The day we visited Rangag moors in search for the fallen Fortress was the last day of sunny weather in July. The second week of our holidays brought unsettled conditions with lingering cloud and passing showers. On such days, we prefer to stay away from the big rounds (what's the point in climbing i...

Re: Aonach Beag & Mòr from Glen Nevis - Steep/Loose Descent

An alternative would be to partially reascend Aonach Beag and go down the SW ridge, which is a lot more pleasant. We were forced to return over AB when doing this route in winter conditions. The steep descent was far too dangerous. I remember that in 2017 a walker died in an accident when descendin...

The fallen Fortress

The day after Panther's Biathlon I was too knackered to even think about any mountains (and my backside was so sore I could hardly sit :lol: ) but the day was so lovely that it would be a sin to sit home, so Kevin suggested a trip to another crash site, up north this time. We had this one in mind la...

Re: Lochnagar & The White Mounth, Stags, Eagles & Plane Wrec

Always nice to see photos from this corner of the woods :D Your first photo of the wreckage is actually part of the tail rudder. Surprising how much debris is still left up there. Most walkers don't even see half of it, many pieces are located lower down the slopes, like part of the second wing, a w...

Re: Introducing "Malky-assisted walking"

It is a lovely wee hill, much understated. Great views for a sub.

I think we came down more or less the same way, hoping for a path that never was... Kevin was moaning constantly because I kept stopping to stuff myself with raspberries. :lol: :lol:

Re: A Circular Kintail Walk

That is a proper Weaselwalk :clap: I admit I never did the whole South Glen Shiel ridge in one go... Not that I'm not fit enough for it, just never happened. I remember cycling down the A87 after traversing one of the Shiel routes. Arghhh, killer lorries everywhere :lol: :lol: BTW guess where we end...

Re: And they thought they were in Yorkshire...

Enjoyed that. Its a long time since I've been up there...it was still a Munro then! We first visited Sgurr nan Ceannaichean and Moruisg shortly after the official demotion (in winter conditions, a grand day!). We didn't know about the crash site then. Such fantastic hills are always worth repeating...
