Sgorr Ruadh, Achnashellach

Sgorr Ruadh means the red peak in Gaelic. It would be Skye's first taste of scrambling on Torridon sandstone. As well as probably the longest time we've been out so far, and certainly the roughest.  read more ...



Continuing Skye's hill training: Ben Macdui and Cairngorm

The forecast was right! It was a windy day of 2 halves. The morning dull, overcast at best, and cloud blowing across the tops to add a little 'atmosphere', just for Ben Macdui. How appropriate, but we didn't see the old grey man. The afternoon was just as windy, but very warm in the sun.  read more ...



Skye's first Munro - Sgor Gaoith

Sgor Gaoith means the windy peak in Gaelic. Having recently climbed Meall a' Bhuachaille with Skye I thought it time for her first munro. With the Cairngorm ski centre car parks still shut (what was the point of closing them anyway!) I chose Sgor Gaoith as a reasonable, but not excessive, step up. Since it was a Sunday I also wanted to be away from the crowds.  read more ...



Beinn Liath Mhor (Achnashellach)

I'd had a bit of a rest after Lochnagar, and was now getting restless. Planning on a walk at Braemar was put aside when I saw the forecast on Friday evening, for the following day. It was going to be a boggy one, with added side order of rain. Uninspiring. But Sunday was looking much better over to the west. So I pencilled in Beinn Liath Mhor.  read more ...



The White Mounth - Lochnagar and 4 other munros

As Anna was going to be in Kintail and the weekend looked nice, which made a change, I fancied a long walk possibly on my own. I'd been eyeing up this walk for some time. On the off-chance of anything better I was browsing the Scottish Women's Walking Group and rather serendipitously spotted this walk as an event for Saturday. Game on then. Mentioning it to Anna she swapped. Which turned out pretty lucky as the weather on the west coast was forecast to not be as good as the east.  read more ...



South Glenshiel Ridge

The south Glenshiel ridge is a very long walk over 7 munros of 17miles, 1800+m of ascent and 2000m of descent as the end point is 200m below the start.  read more ...



Carn a' Chlamain (Blair Athol)

I planned a two day bike and hike based around Blair Athol and the Old Bridge of Tilt. I'd been here before when I walked Beinn a' Ghlo with the SWWG. With Anna away it was a good time to get the bike out.  read more ...



Ben Lomond

The campers the other side of the car park from me were still in their tent, asleep perhaps, or hiding from the midges. I was in Florence, unhampered and grateful. When they turned up late the previous evening I wondered where they came from. It wasn't an obvious stopping point on say the WHW. Or a cross Scotland walking route, or even a local route. It was on the NCN7 but they were walking, they couldn't be walking a hard packed or road route surely. Judging by the lass limping I'd guess they had walked a fair distance.  read more ...
