Ann an t-side math an mios seo ......... been doing a few singles with the cailleach over the last few weeks

she is hardy :D

First stop was Sidh Challain or Scheihallion on a Saturday two weeks back .We were in the car park about 9.30am, a look at the John Muir Trust info panel had me raging , not one word of Gaidhlig in an area where my ancestory lies.The 1872 Education Act destroyed Perthshire Gaelic, this was the indigenous language and that should be recognised.The continued extirpation of people and culture via land appropriation would not happen in ANY other country in Europe shame on the JMT.

Ceart tha sin e ..... speech over

Uill suas a cnoic ...the path is like a motorway and the weather was'nt looking great ,tioram ach sgothach

Sealltain !


On Dihaoine na Cueste (good friday) a very wet ascent of Meall nan Eun via Gleann Ceitlin,i had omitted this from the rest of the round a few weeks back. A bit of a slog this one and quite steep we had it completed in six hours the cailleach is slower than her man :lol:

So three bagged and no a view to be had

I did this on Saturday in similar conditions.

Its a nice wee hill with fine views...when they show themselves.

I was expecting the car park to be full when arriving at 9.15am but it was empty...however on the return it looked like Ikea car park on a Saturday afternoon :shock:
