Beth's Stuff, of a Random Nature

Ingleton to Fawber

I thought it was going to rain at some point during the day, showers were forecast, but it didn't and it was warm. Unfit from being laid up for 3 months meant I was slow not that I was bothered as I had all day, I was going to use as much of it as I needed.  read more ...

Bynack More and Bynack Beag

Parking up at the end of the road near Glenmore Lodge I thought I recognise that van, it's Mr Walkhighlands. Didn't see Paul out on the hill though I did look.  read more ...

Ben Macdui and Cairn Gorm

Whilst looking at the map I wondered about, for me, a massive day out; head out from the Cas carpark and up the ridge between Lurchers and Lochan, over the plateau to Ben Macdui, on the way back turn right at Lochan Buidhe and head for Cairn Gorm. It would be the first time back on the plateau, on my own, since my Glenmore lodge navigation (sept08) and winter skills (feb09) courses. I took the sailing approach; I'd head off 'in the direction of' and see what happened.  read more ...

Beinn Ghlas and Ben Lawers, 2010-06-18

A stunning, although fresh day awaited me as I parked up at the Ben Lawers visitor centre. After some faffing about, umming and argh'ing whether to do the Tarmachan ridge or Lawers, I decided on the latter. With maybe an out and back over Meall Corranaich too if I had the time. I had also decided to escape the midges and head to the Cairngorms afterwards so I couldn't be off the hill too late for the longish drive over there.  read more ...

Stob Dubh, Buachaille Etive Beag

I met up again with Carin to do a hill or two. We had done the Ben together back in snows of March, I felt under pressure (of my own making) to come up with a hill; that wasn't too far away, and would be at least worthy of the effort. I'd been up Stob Coire Raineach on the wee Buachaille in appalling weather last year and fancied there might be some nice views around. Doing the other top Stob Dubh, from the col and out along the ridge appealed to my sense of adventure...  read more ...

Ben More (Crianlarich)

Despite the many visits to Crianlarich through the winter and spring, I hadn't gone up either Ben More, or Stob Binnein. So I picked a cracking day to climb it!  read more ...

The Storr, and Old Man of Storr

We were on Skye for a day or so, and Paul fancied a stroll to see the Old Man of Storr. And on the excellent walkhighlands there is a circular walk taking the Storr, and the best views of the Old Man.  read more ...

Beinn Ghobhlach

The day started promising; lovely blue sky, snow on the tops of the mountains around us, no midgies.  read more ...
