Re: solo hillwalking

Can't say I go out alone for any soul searching, more just I like the views it offers and I dislike groups. Voluntarily going out for hours at a time with others would just be odd.

Re: Landslide near Loch Quoich dam update.

I was looking into that area last year but the snows came so I put it off, guess I will mark that area down for 2020 then.

Re: Dalmunzie Bridge

Good, I made a circular route of Glas Tulaichean a couple of years ago and only then realised that there was not a crossing. Had to just wade through the river. Loved the setting of Loch nan Eun at the top of Glean Taitneach, so might head back.

Re: First Wee Stretch of the Wee Legs

Certainly got the weather for it that day. Was there a couple of weeks ago and low cloud and high wind prevented me doing your original route or any route. Back in 2017 I tried to cross over from Loch Lee but too little daylight hours to cross the distance. Also there are is a double electric fence ...

Re: No snow?

Felt sorry for the mountain hare I saw in its winter coat. Camouflaging it ain't. Practically no snow in the Monadhliath Mountains.

Re: Bongo makes it to Braemar-MacDui and Carn a'Mhaim Bike H

You are a brave man going down to Carn a'Mhaim from Macdui even going via the stream. I went up the way not using the stream and those wobbly rocks at times were nerve racking. The stunning views help but not the most pleasurable of experiences.

Re: Boggiest Hills?

Yes, now that I think about it you are not wrong. That wide gash in the ground at the bottom.

Re: Boggiest Hills?

One I remember although not sure if this counts as boggy or not is the aptly named Black Hill west of Glen Isla near Monamenach. A small patch but I was stupid enough to follow the fence, just glad it was a dry spell. https://i.imgur.com/MIBbwLX.jpg https://i.imgur.com/BnEj359.jpg

Re: Glen Tanar Temporary Trail Closure

I have had that before, usually well sign posted. There are quite a few nice walks up there and being forced off path is not necessarily a bad thing.

Just have to hope people listen and keep dogs on leads etc, etc.

Re: McNeish : Note in your car, or NOT

I have never thought about people breaking into cars parked by hill walkers. However I have never left a note in my car either. I would agree with what is said above that the time it takes to break into a car means it is of no significance whether someone is away half an hour or half a day. It would...

Re: Plans for 2019

To actually get out more. Work, Weather and Laziness for not having done more this year is my excuse but more of than not it is the latter reason. Primarily I need to make use of my holidays and get back to the north west coast. Wester Ross, Assynt and Sutherland. Better planning of journeys is also...

Re: wading socks/shoes

https://www.walkhighlands.co.uk/Forum/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=83967

A recent topic on the subject brought up these.

https://www.feetz.co.uk/

I have yet to actually try some even though I mean to buy a pair. Better than taking my boots off and going barefoot hopefully.

Re: Wind speeds

As I have no way of measuring wind speed when out, I am not quite sure. 30-40mph and I will take note but less than that and I am OK. I like a mild to strong breeze to keep insects away. However, I am always wary of it as I have been walking in a sheltered part got up to a crest of a hill and then f...

Re: MWIS Scottish Forecasts Map

This is why I like the met office approach. Shows the areas the forecasts apply to.
