3 Tumps in a windfarm

I parked up in an excellent space on the minor road to the east of Abington right opposite the good track up the glen beside the Raggengill Burn. Near the high point of this path an ATV track headed off up the broad shoulder of Tewsgill Hill, leading virtually all the way to the summit trig. $matche...

3 Greenock Tumps- Corlick Hill, Scroggy Bank & Dunrod Hill

I parked the the car at the start to the good, signposted track up Corlick Hill on the old Largs Road out of Greenock. It was a very pleasant stroll to this hill with good views over to my next two hills, Scroggy Bank and Dunrod Hill. P1040440.JPG P1040433.JPG I left the track, went over a small bur...

Crosbie Hills

I must confess that I'd never heard of the Crosbie Hills until today when I popped round from Dalry to park near the cattle grid on the (very) minor road past Knockendon. Heading towards Caldron Hill was rough with bog and heather abounding but I soon found a lovely easy path along the broad ridge t...

Great fun on Goat Fell

I wasn't going to bother writing this report since I've been over the Arran hills more times that I care to remember but since I did this walk with a friend who is not at all a hill-walker - we do one hill outing a year - I thought I would write it up for him. The weather was set to be very warm so ...

Strolling on Struie

I was up in Inverness staying with friends for a long weekend. For some reason or other, one of my friends, not a hill-walker, had always wanted to see the view from the top of Struie so, since the Saturday weather was fine, we drove up to the extended lay-by high on the Struie road and parked. $mat...

Sweat and toil on Meall an Doirein

Having been out on the hills on the two previous days, days better suited to lying on a beach and cooling off in the sea, I had thought about having a rest day but finally decided to make the short journey from Aulbea to start this hill along the good path just south of Poolewe. Unfortunately, the w...

Roasted to perfection on Beinn Ghobhlach

Having sweated the whole night in a tiny room in an Inverness B&B, I was driving up to Aultbea to meet up with friends. I decided to break my journey with a detour to Badrallach to climb Beinn Ghobhlach, which, in retrospect, given the intense heat, was maybe not such a good idea. Perhaps the da...

A scorcher on Creag Ruadh

I was heading up to Inverness for a night before travelling on to Aulbea to meet up with friends for a few days and I thought that I would break my journey with a little detour up past Laggan and Spey Dam to have a walk up Creag Ruadh. I say 'walk' but it was more of a slog in the heat of the aftern...

Spartleton

Having enjoyed my walks on Dirrington Great Law and Meikle Says Law earlier in the day, I drove round to the Whiteadder Res. to complete my day's trio on Spartleton. I knew there was a route up from the south but I decided to drive a bit further on to park in good space near a track heading up Bothw...

Meikle Says Law

It was a short drive from Dirrington Great Law to the start to this hill at spot height 401 above Faseny Cottage where there was space to park about 5 cars. I knew this route was mostly on good tracks so it was off with boots and on with the approach shoes - I wanted a fairly fast circuit to give me...

An easy stroll on Dirrington Great Law

I fancied going to a part of the country I hadn't been to before, so early Sunday morning I set off from Glasgow to the area around Longformacus to have a walk on the three hills in the vicinity. I started with the one furthest away - Dirrington Great Law - which was also the easiest. I parked at a ...

Hot Stuff on Fionn Bhealach

It was a HOT day. I thought I would head over to Arran to have a walk up a hill there as I might enjoy a cooling sea-breeze. No chance! Off the ferry, a mad dash to get on the overcrowded bus, which broke down just outside Brodick and had to be replaced. So, I arrived in Lochranza later than planned...

Building character in peat hag hell

I parked in the good car park in Glen Artney and set off west along the road to the bridge across the Water Of Ruchill. I went through the gate and followed a faint track along the east side of the river. There was a bit of an awkward crossing of the Allt Ollach (no bridge) before I started to climb...

Corserine and Carlin's Cairn

Twenty years ago Corserine was my first hill after a year of chemotherapy so this was a strange kind of anniversary walk for me. At least this time I felt quite a bit fitter! I parked in the good parking area at the end of the single track road from Polharrow Bridge to Burnhead and set off along the...

Beinn a' Chuallaich

After yesterday's easy stroll on Mealna Letter, this was a totally different day out on the hills. I parked on the B847 south of Trinafour at NN707614 where there was a large passing place. There were signs telling drivers not to park in the passing places all along this road but this space is large...
