Re: Aonach Eagach

Thank you Angus

in truth there are stretches of the walk i don't remember as i was concentrating on the problems in front of me. I'd love to do it again but there are so many hills and not enough days.

I hope you get back there.

Aonach Eagach

In my later years I thought I’d talk up mountain walking in earnest, in preparation for retirement. Apart from a solitary Corbett in 1995 I’d walked mainly abroad on holiday. In 2018 my son Ben and I hiked around the southern slopes of the Sierra Nevada (Spain). In 2018 we tried a couple of the easi...

Re: Beinn Eighe

I think you may be right about them not being pipe rock. it's in sandstone. They are fairly widespread below the cliff and on flat surfaces; i. not certain if it's the top layer of sandstone or an inter layer but it is close to the boundary between sandstone and quartzite. If they were within the la...

Beinn Eighe

our_route.gpx Last year we tackled Beinn Alligin on our first visit to Torridon and wishing to save Liathach for better weather we decided to give Beinn Eighe a try. We had just endured a miserable two days, spending a whole day on Skye sorting out a puncture (many thanks to Ewan MacRaes for their ...

Re: Norfolk & Cambs: The Fen Rivers Way

Jonathan i must be the first to give the thumbs up to your report of what must be the flattest walk on the website (unless someone does one for the Broadford Co-op). The reason the report caught my eye was that i grew up in the Fens and cycled around a lot of this area and my parents nearly bought t...

Re: Blaven - May contain mild nudity and scenes of a Skye na

A great report Scott, i always thing the return is more dangerous than the ascent. i've encountered Ravens on several Munros but those on Anonach Eagach (see photo) and The Big Bookle seemed the most forthright, i now take a pack of fruit and nuts as tribute. They are clearly intelligent birds and l...
