Re: Ruadh-stac Beag direttissima: don't try it at home!

Oh BP - that reminds me of the first time I went up Foinaven, also by a direct and crazy route. Having done it once, I'm happy to adhere to your advice And you'll be wise to! :wink: This was one of the most ridiculous ascents we have done in our career... especially that it is just a few hundred me...

Re: Where's the picture ? - Scotland (part 3)

Thanks :D Sgurr Choinnich Mor from Glen Nevis side is on my list of routes still to-do!

Next one, should go quickly. Which Munro summit is this:

Ruadh-stac Beag direttissima: don't try it at home!

A week after our re-visit to Arkle we still felt like doing something steep, rocky and ridgy. Weather for the weekend was going to be good in the north-west again (a rare occurrence in Scotland!) so we picked another Corbett to re-climb, this time in Torridon. The choice was between Ruadh-stac Beag ...

Re: Forecast WRONG again

And Kevin is trying to convince me to to cycle up this road on bikes fully loaded with overnighting gear...
:lol: :lol: :lol:

One of several options for our final Munros, the plan is to bag Ben Dronaig as well. Good to see what I've signed up to!

Re: Up Arkle with Mr Hickey

Thanks, guys, always happy to tell another far north story :D It is such a fantastic area - not a single boring hill. I'm looking forward to next year and returning to Foinaven and Suilven. Meall Horn/Sabhal Beag combo is also on the list. We're taking it easy at the moment; Kevin has a rib injury (...

Re: Couple of subs north of Bonar Bridge

Aaah, many thanks for this report! Perfect hills for short winter days. Now bring on snow and frost! :D I was thinking about a bigger round of Bonar subs from Glen Evelix (I could even pretend that the glen was named after me :wink: ) but the shorter options look tempting. Hopefully we don't get loc...

Up Arkle with Mr Hickey

The hills of the far north (like Arkle) taste best in autumn. Some routes might be too long for shorter days but nothing compares to a nice ridge walked in September colours :D Weather is more likely to be capricious though but as we experienced during our recent visits to the north-west, it pays to...

Re: Buidhe Bheinn, from Glenshiel rather than Kinloch Hourn

From all the comments (more than expected for a dull, uneventful walk report!), it seems Buidhe Bheinn has been a bit of a disobliging hill for a lot of folks, having to go back and get bagged in place of Sgurr a Bhac Chaolais :shock: Must have caused many headaches as the actual Corbett summit wan...

Re: Mr Hickey finds the passage!

Another good one, BP - looks familiar 😉 This is one set of hills I definitely plan to revisit - just wish I was as close to them as you are ! - cheers Thanks, RH, agree Quinag is not a mountain to visit only once, just as other Assynt hills. We are currently doing a second round of the Assynt/Coiga...

Re: Buidhe Bheinn, from Glenshiel rather than Kinloch Hourn

We did the very same route when climbing Buidhe Beinn. I had a splitting headache that day and Kevin suffered from consuming too much dairy, but it was still one of the best ridge walks in our career. I guess the best way to enjoy BB and SBC would be a full traverse from Glen Shiel to Kinloch Hourn ...

Mr Hickey finds the passage!

Back in 2012, my first visit to Quinag was a Rite of Passage for me, at least in the subject of Corbetts. They are always harder to multi-bag than Munros, considering they must have at least 500ft of reascent. 7 Munros in a single day? Can be done (South Glen Shiel)! 7 Corbetts? Ehmm... :problem: :p...

Re: A visit to the Rogie Falls at last

The falls have been busy this year. We drove past the Rogie car park many times on trips to Torridon and Assynt, it was always packed to bursting. We used to pick mushrooms in Contin but about 5 years ago the place was discovered by commercial pickers. Hard to find anything now and whatever is growi...

Re: Quinag (#222) - a Corbetts' compleation camp

Many congrats from us, too! :clap: :clap: :clap: What a trip to finish the long journey!

I'm in the process of writing my own walk report on Quinag, it's such a fantastic mountain. Might wait a few days to post it though :wink:
