Ae Waukin' O' - Queensberry from Mitchellslacks

This should have been a very straightforward wee walk, but it turned into something more of an adventure than I’d anticipated, due to a combination of zero visibility and some very mysterious happenings involving my pocket compass and my Blackberry phone :shock: ... little did I suspect that I’d be ...

Re: Sgor na h-Ulaidh, Beinn Fhionnlaidh & Beinn Sgulaird

My word, thon's an epic trip :clap: ! Impressive. I knew it was possible to do h-Ulaidh and Fhionnlaidh together, but hadn't heard of anyone going for the hat trick and throwing in Sgulaird as well :o ... lovely photos too :D . Very jealous - I'd never get permission from my wife for this much of an...

Bein Luibhean: a quick one after work

My wife was off to her Book Group on Wednesday night, and the kids were away to various Airts and Pairts for the week, so I took the rare opportunity for a wee bit of summer walking post-work. Of do-able smaller hills that are an easy drive from Glasgow, Beinn Luibhean looked a good option, with a c...

Re: Ben Lomond - my first Munro

Congratulations on your first one :clap: ! I bet you're hooked very quickly - most people are...
I ended up climbing Ben Lomond about 5 times before I got round to doing any of the others :lol: - don't knock it; it's a great hill, mind - anyway, hopefully you'll make more rapid progress :D !

Re: Beinn Luibhean dash

Nice report as always, Kev! Thon's something of a scary close-up though :wtf: . Luibhean is a nice wee hill I'd say - I did it after work this week; it has great views and makes an ideal evening outing from the fleshpots of Glasgow. It's quite possible to be up and back down inside of 3 hours, even ...

Re: Beinn Luibhean

Really lovely sunset photies there :clap: - you obviously got a great evening for it weather-wise.
I just did this one after work - I'd say Luibhean is a seriously under-rated wee hill; it has great views and is ideal for an evening walk in the summer.

3 out of 4, nae photos and a broken trekking pole..

Probably not my most successful outing - only 3 Munros out of a planned 4 (we had a fail on Carn Corm :( ), I snapped one of my trekking poles and I also managed to forget my camera, hence no photos :oops: - probably therefore not much of a Walk Report, but here goes anyway :? . I hadn't been a prop...

Re: Ben Lui, plus Donald Duck's other three Munro nephews

Excellent round bobble hat. We were baking over on Beinn a'Chochuill and Beinn Eunaich yesterday – not sure I would have managed these four in that heat! 8) Aye, it was hot all right - can't complain though :) - it's not often we see it like that. Once we were up Lui the route stayed fairly high fo...

The Famous Ptarmigan

The start of a whole precious week off work, and I was hoping to get some walking done ... and lo and behold, believe it or not, the weather forecast was starting to look very encouraging :D . Shurely shome mishtake... Anyway, I didn’t take twice asking and decided to have a look at the Tarmachan Ri...

The Wee Jubilee Herdsman

A Diamond Jubilee, and a strangely timed Public Holiday on the first Monday in June ... what better way to celebrate it, I was thinking, than to climb a hill or two :D ? Being based in the central belt (as most walkers are, I’d suspect, statistically speaking), my Munros to date have pretty much rad...

Western Glen Rosa: there's a Nuis loose aboot this hoose!

I had an invite to go over to Arran for the day to do a bit of walking and then have dinner with my aunt, uncle & cousins, who were all staying in one of the lodges at the Auchrannie Hotel for the week – very nice! One of my cousins was initially going to join me for the walk but he is a redhead...
