Great report - from the number of layers to keep warm in the tent to the magnificent views you got. Yes that return road walk is a bummer if you don't get a lift. My pal (male) tried to thumb a lift for 45 minutes to go and get the car to bring back but no success and then within 5 mins of me trying these guys stopped and turned their car round to take us the opposite way they were going. I'd chatted to them earlier up on the Sisters - just shows it pays to be friendly! :D

Fantastic report and achievement! I too worry about walking back to the car along the narrow, quiet roads, so try to avoid it. Great that you got a lift, though.

Thanks Annie!! I forgot it was Monday and I guess the roads would have been quieter than compared with the weekend. I was lucky! 8)

Taking heaps of duvets definitely sounds like a good idea! Loved the bit about you singing at the top of the hill ..and why not ay?! Bet you felt great :D Love the ridge walking in Kintail ..definitely hills I would revisit :D


Thanks Alice! Hardcore...?! Me?! Mwahahaha.... total wuss - you should have seen me when the stag was stood outside my tent rutting. :lol: I was curled up in a very tight ball hoping that he wouldn't come and trample on me whilst trying not to wet myself!!! :crazy:


This is familiar - I had similar hopes and fears when I shared a field with cows last month. Very brave to do the whole ridge at this time of year and great that you got the weather. Superb :clap:

Great walk and pictures to match. The hills really are alive with the sound of music! Keep it up and hopefully, we'll all get a listen in someday.

Well done Dawn!! That's a fair old walk that! Looks like a cracker though, one that has been on my radar for a while but I never seem to get close to doing! Love the pic of the Forcan ridge. You certainly know how to wild camp too!!! :lol: :lol:

At least deer and stags are more fearful - cows are too used to humans, they'd easily trample all over you. I would be much more scared of cows than a deer/stag. And thanks! :D

This looks very similar to the day I had out on the ridge a couple of weeks earlier :) . Great walk and nice photos.

I find the quieter the road is, the more chance you have of getting a lift off the cars that do pass....sometimes :lol:

I was quite lucky with the weather - I can be jammy sometimes - it was a fab trip followed up by three Munro's the next day (two of which were repeats) :roll: :D Ta Muchly
