Re: Geal Charn Monadhliath (First Munro).

Due to time constraints I decided on Geal Charn Monadhliath which would not be at the top of many peoples lists for being a first. Right enough, you may be one of a select few people to have done that one first :lol: - however, I'm always jealous of people who get to start their Munro round with a ...

Re: climbed beinn narnain

It's a rocky hill right enough, Beinn Narnain, and quite a tough walk - I don't think I could have done it when I was 10, so well done :clap: :clap: :clap: ! It's great that you enjoyed it so much - hopefully you'll climb a lot more hills :D !

Re: Creag Bheag from Kingussie.

Impressive views right enough :D . It's always great to see reports on the Sub-2000 Marilyns; this looks to be a very accessible one for a wee half-day's walk.
Nice shot of the red squirrel at the end :clap: . I've seen them myself in this area; it seems to be a stronghold.

Re: How I got the bug: my first two Munros

Lovely report, and interesting to see a "historical" one like this :clap: :clap: ! I haven't done these two yet - they're a bit of a drive from Glasgow... Most folks seem to start with Ben Lomond or Ben Vorlich; it must have been great to start with a couple of less well trodden ones :D . ...

Re: Boat trip

As for the photos, There are a lot of duds, but nae bad for a £30 non-brand camera off a Groupon deal :D Regularly gets a soaking too - I've seen water pouring out of it, but it still works! Your photos are great! Do you have details of the Groupon deal?? Nice idea, that - not just walkhighlands.co...

Re: A day out from Bridge of Orchy

I had always wanted to do these two since walking past them on the WHW, but my selective memory had failed to note how high the saddle appeared to be. Aye, it's a steep and squelchy slog up to thon bealach, right enough :-| - all the same, they're a great pair of hills and very accessible from the ...

Re: Finally, Munro number 2 (and 3 & 4) on glorious Beinn A’

Great report, and excellent photos :clap: :clap: - you were right lucky with the weather there. I haven't done these three yet - your report makes them look right tempting :) . Not too far from the fleshpots of Glasgow and Edinburgh, either - as you say, this must be a great way for youse Edinburger...

Re: Ben Vane

Good effort! It's a steep wee brute, Ben Vane. I did it last November in the p***ing rain - we couldn't see the noses in front of our faces; it's therefore interesting for me to finally see what the hill actually looks like :lol: ! You got nice photos despite a bit of Clag :clap: - not too bad for S...

Re: Prow'd to make it up #40! Vorlich and Stuc a'Chroin

nicely done Kenny. We get our holidays at the end of this week and hope to camp somewhere on ben Vorlich on saturday night. See any good spots? Thanks!

Re: Vorlich and Stuc - girls back on form

Well done with this pair of hills in such foul weather :clap: - that Stuc is a tad steep from this side. I just did these two on a (rare) lovely day last week - I don't know that I'd have tackled them in weather like this; all credit to you for giving it a go :D !

Prow'd to make it up #40! Vorlich and Stuc a'Chroin

A precious mid-week Annual Leave day in the summer, and it was actually sunny – surely shome mishtake :? ... However, I didn’t take twice asking and decided to tackle Ben Vorlich and Stuc A’Chroin, which I’d been meaning to get ticked off for a while but had been leaving for better weather. Lochearn...

Re: Sail Chalmadale summit camp. Isle of Arran.

At Catacol. Meall nan Damh. Probably the finest S2 Marilyn on Arran. Cracking wee hill. Agreed! I went up Meall nan Damh on Tuesday there to make a longer day of it after doing the Beinn Bharrain ridge - it's a great wee hill with great summit views :D . Couldn't understand why there were no prevou...

Re: Ben Vorlich & Stuc a' Chroin, at last.

At this point we chose to go different routes, Jimmy and Jaf, keen to try this scrambling lark, while Billy wanted to try the bypass. Big mistake, Billygoat, as it proved a harder climb up the steep, scree path, than the relative ease with which Jimbo found his first go at climbing up and over the ...

The Full Pirnmill Thrill: Beinn Bharrain to Meall nan Damh

Another brief visit to meet up with relatives holidaying in Arran (we are in with the Jet Set, us :lol: !)... This time parents, sister, niece & nephews, who had a holiday house in Brodick for the week. I’d finished off the Arran Corbetts earlier in the year, with a great day’s walking over Bein...

Re: Beinn Bhuide -something for everyone

Nice report as ever, Polly - God bless the European Working Time Directive :lol: ! Although I'm nowhere near your impressive tally of Munros, Beinn Bhuidhe is getting high up my "to do" list, being my only outstanding Arrochar Alp and the first hill in the SMC Munros book. I was wondering ...
