Creag Tharsuinn from Glenbranter

We started from Glenbranter because of easy parking, and followed the Cowal Way southwestwards. There is a new section of the Way, not shown on the OS maps, which took us off the track and along paths up the Allt Robuic past waterfalls.

The easy way up Beinn Bheag (Cowal)

We set off on a 'mystery tour' since we hoped to find an easy way up Beinn Bheag from Glenbranter, but didn't know if we would succeed. Beinn Bheag is almost completely ringed with forestry. We had looked at OS maps, OpenStreetMaps, johnthornmaps, google earth, and walkhighland reports. We had seen ...

Meall a'Crathaich from Corrimony

We chose this route partly because we were staying nearby at Cannich, but also because it gives a route with less wind turbines, We parked at the Corrimony cairn carpark and cycled through Corrimony and up through the bird reserve (no birds but pleasant), and past the loch. We left the bikes hidden ...

Carn a'Chaochain from Cougie

It was the last day of our socially distancing club weekend at Cannich, and we had a rather late start as we said goodbye to folk. From reading the SMC Graham book, we thought that we could drive easily to the Plodda Falls on tarmac but that then it would be better to leave the van there and cycle t...

Carn Salachaidh from Ardgayhill

We were staying in Ardgayhill so decided to walk from the door to Carn Salachaidh. We weren't familiar with local paths, so it was a grand opportunity for exploration. We started by going up to Oldtown and taking an attractive forest track to Badvoon. There was a poor section of route here, with a r...

Glas-Bheinn Mhor from Alltsigh

We parked at Alltsigh on the A82, because it gives good access to both Glas-Bheinn Mhor and Meall Fuar Mhonaidh, with just one section of rough ground between the two. We set off up track together through forest but the Hare soon sped off. We would be walking separately all day so that he could bag ...

Apologies for making you think that you had to apologise! I didn't think I was making a point. Will stop there before any more misunderstandings. Enjoy the hills.

Yes, though WH is not documenting this at the moment. And I was looking for a slightly interesting title.....

A nameless hill in Glen Artney

It was the first dry day for a while, and luckily on a Sunday so we didn't have to worry about stalking. We followed, more or less, the route described in the SMC guide from the Glen Artney car park. The Hare was disappointed to start by walking uphill along the road to get down to the bridge across...

Stob Breac from Inverlochlarig

We had decided that this hill was to be done in summer, because of the length of the drive rather than the length of the hill. The car park at Inverlochlarig was full by 9:15 on a Sunday, we just managed to find space on the verge. We followed the route in the SMC guide, which made a nice round, wit...

Re: Beinn Tharsuinn from Diebidale

[quote]I don't understand why the Graham Book suggests combining it with Meall a'Chaorainn and the long walk (or cycle) from Black Bridge?[quote] Agreed. Sometimes the book gives alternatives but not this time, they are definitely writing for speedbaggers with these hills. We 'copied' you on Meall a...

Re: Beinn Dhorain in lonely Glen Loth

Great views from that hill and an exciting drive! Especially where you first come off the a9. We did the quick out and back from the high point as a leg stretcher recently. We blocked part of the A9 for a short while because a large van was coming out of Glen Loth when we (with our large van) were ...

Beinn nan Eun from Glen Glass

We had decided to approach Beinn nan Eun from Glen Glass, partly because we wanted to cycle alongside Loch Glass. From Evanton, we drove along the very narrow and finally bumpy road to Eileanach, where we were pleased to find no barking dogs. Then we cycled along an excellently graded track through ...

Beinn Tharsuinn from Diebidale

With many thanks to WH reports from Black Panther and Yorick for the inspiration for this enjoyable route, a grand day out ideal for those who don't want to bag two rather unrelated Grahams in one day. From the Alladale car park we cycled a few km up Glen Calvie, then left the bikes by the footbridg...

Meall a'Chaorainn from Gleann Mhor

The smc guide says that the approach to Meall a'Chaorainn up Strathvaich is the 'favoured' one without explaining why. We had cycled in that way twice before, in the spring when the cattle were fed next to the track, resulting in a deep mix of very soft mud and cowpats to be cycled through, and we h...
