Based near Inverness, looking for a hill walking partner

Based near Inverness, looking for a hill walking partner


Postby strathpeffer-girl » Tue Aug 29, 2017 9:47 pm

Very active 39 year old, looking for an experienced hill partner. I'm based 20 miles from Inverness but have my own transport so can travel. I've got a fair bit of experience, including winter hill rounds. I also enjoy a good challenging hill scramble. Other interests include camping, mountain biking, kayaking, climbing and outdoor swimming. It would be an added bonus if you were also interested in photography :)

Hi I am fit but not a very experienced munro climber (been up Nevis, Caingorm, Ben Mac Duhi, Brariach and a few grahams but I live at Grantown on spey so would like to do more with like minded folk. On a seperate note I am a keen mountain biker and have competed in the Strathpuffer twice so am able to share my experience if that's of interest.

Hi,

I'm on the lookout for a hill walking partner too, not massively experienced but seem to share a lot of similar interests. I'm part of a club however pretty much everyone has compleated so bit of a struggle to find someone to join me for my munro rounds and have the patience to wait for me whilst i mess around with the camera :D

Hi Huwel2001

I am a member of the same club, one of the few that have not compleated! I also live just up the road from you-give me a shout if you fancy doing anything. I am available to walk mid week as well as week-ends and love a good mountain epic. Would also love to learn about taking some nice photies!!

Hi The Lady In Ivan!

That's great to hear! Will you be there for Elsies last on the 22nd? I've only just recently been tagging along so haven't got round to meeting everyone yet, hopefully see you there if you are!

Thanks

I'm genuinely not trying to rude or anything but was this opening line a joke?
