Re: rehabilitation

Backpacker, I applaud your endeavour. However, when I did the 3 Munros from Corrour station and came back towards Loch Ossian, it took me 8 hours in August. With a lot of deep snow, you may well be floundering for a considerable period of time. Good luck. Some nice shots there Dunrig - hope you're ...

Re: rehabilitation

Cracking report,

Just out of curiosity, what's the snow like around Loch Ossian?

I'm heading up there this weekend and heading from Corrour over to Dalwhinnie

I quite fancy getting involved more in maintaining the bothies, I use them often enough, although me being in Gourock doesn't lend itself to being able to help out that often

Who's out this coming weekend? 19/20

I've a new pair of Scarpa's to break in, so I'm heading of to Corrour to walk over to Dalwhinnie and depending on conditions, daylight and my general fitness, I might spend a night in Culra Bothy.

The seems like a good halfway point between the two

Re: Morrone in March

I went up Hill Morrone about this time 4 years ago, there was no snow when I went up, be prepared for a steep climb and many a false summit, the view is spectacular when you reach the top, The descent is pretty much, just follow the vehicle down the other side and you'll hit a minor road, which you ...
