McFarquhar's Bed, Cromarty

It may just be a short coastal walk, but I personally like this area. The cliffs of Cromarty are a fantastic viewpoint. One can of course stay on tracks and well-maintained paths, but I think the best "bites" of the cake can only be visited if you are not easily put off by mud, bog and eau...

Dunnottar Castle

Last Monday we went to Aberdeen so I thought it was a good occasion to pop in to Stonehaven and spend a while in famous Dunnottar Castle. It may not be a grand walk, just a short stroll along the coast... Nevertheless, the scenery is stunning so I simply couldn't resist sharing a few pics of Dunnott...

Re: Braeriach, Angels Peak and Cairn Toul from Glen Feshie

Thanks a lot for posting this route. It will be very helpful to me. I have plans for this summer to climb Angels Peak, Cairn Toul and Devils Point in one long walk from Glen Feshie - will be a modification of your expedition, about 33km long :D

Brown Cow Hill - the white world

Weather has improved at last and after a couple of miserable weekends we finally saw some sunshine and blue skye. So it was time to return to the hills! We chose Brown Cow Hill - not a very inspirational name for a Corbett. When looking at the map, it appears to be a gentle-sloped mountain and the e...

Ben Stack

Saturday's forecast predicted cloud anywhere but in the far north, so Assynt was the logical place to go if we wanted to avoid walking in the mist. Originally we had our attention on Ben Hee, but as there were earthworks/roadworks of some sort on the track leading to it (and no chance to park anywhe...

Re: Dugs - a hillwalkers best friend

Brodie is not that friendly, so is never off the lead at anytime. He was a rescue dog who had been mistreated, had two teeth smashed and a few heavy beatings, so no wonder he has issues. Your Brodie was lucky to find a decent owner to take care of him. People who beat up innocent dogs are big cowar...

Re: Garbh-bheinn-Skye

Wow! Skye mountains in white coats :D :D :D fantastic stuff! Garbh-bheinn is one of the best viewpoints for the Cuillin ridge, that's for sure. We're going to IOSkye in June, we have to try that route. When we did Garbh-bheinn, we were lazy enough to omit Belig, so we have a good excuse to go back a...

Re: Cullen to Findlater Castle

Ben Klibreck - 100th Munro in the wind

Weather forecast for Sunday was almost perfect. The "almost" bit was wind, according to MetOffice - 45 to 50 mph and incraesing 60 mph :eh: This alone was off-putting and additionally, two days earlier I suffered from a minor leg injury while jogging. Nothing really serious but it hurt :th...

The Wyvis Story - part 2

Litlle Wyvis is widely known as The Smaller Brother of The Big Wyvis :D As it just about reaches Corbett height and is overshadowed by its higher companion, no wonder it is not a very popular hill among climbers. Some more ambitious hillwalkers combine the two Wyvis Brothers in a single walk. We cli...

The Wyvis Story - part 1

For many mountain enthusiasts Ben Wyvis is the first Munro bagged. I guess it's the most popular hill in Inverness area, and strangely enough, not because it's the most interesting one. My husband calls it "Just-as-well" mountain :D :D Sometimes in the summer, when there's not enough time ...

Nice day on Ben Damh

I'm just back from my daily jogging - another bright sunny Thursday and all I could do was running up to Lovat Bridge and back :evil: So I thought I'll update my walks diary today. A few days ago I posted the story of an accidental climb to Sgor Ruadh - now it's time for another Torridon hill just a...

Re: Geal-charn Mor

Good first report :D :D Nice to see some snow on Geal-charn Mor. I climbed it in October 2009 but it felt more like summer. Views towards Cairngorms are lovely on a good day...

Re: Sgorr Ruadh - climbed by accident

Hmmm, it looks like I started an interesting debate here... The most ridiculous excuse after disappearing for a long time :lol: :lol:

Well, actually we did shopping on the way back... Milk, bread and a bottle of Chillean Rose :lol: :lol:

Sgorr Ruadh - climbed by accident

Our first Munro peak this year was climbed, as the title suggests, by accident :lol: as we didn't plan it at all. On Saturday morning we packed our stuff and set off for Fuar Tholl and the famous Wellington's Nose. Clouds were still covering torridonian peaks when we parked at the layby next to the ...
