Hi there, great photographs! Me and my 3 friends are all desparate to do another Munro but are scared that this time of year is too early for novices. Would you say Scheihallion is okay to do this weekend or next (obviously if the weather forecast is still for snow we wont be doing it). We are new to Munro bagging but are very keen. dont have any Winter walking gear i.e. crampons, ice axe etc just usualy waterproofs etc and our enthusiasm!

Sorry, I haven’t been on line for a wee while and missed your post until now.

The good thing about Schiehallion (if you start from Bares o Foss) is that you have only about 750 metres of ascent. Novice or not however, while there is deep-ish snow lying, I would give it a miss. The boulder field at the top could be a bit of a bugger. That’s my tuppence worth.
