Am Faochagach

Am Faochagach means the heathery place. Although these days it's probably best known for being one of the boggiest munros as the approach is across a mile of heathery boggy moorland at the westward end of Loch Glascarnoch. Thankfully after a dry spell of a good 4 to 6 weeks it was still pretty boggy but nothing like it's fearsome reputation.  read more ...

Breezy Ben Macdui

I'd had a couple of weeks or so of rest from the outdoors whilst I was recovering from my Humira injection, and producing another release of mapping. But now needed to get out. My default choice was Ben Macdui on a relatively quiet route.  read more ...

A Cairngorm Stravaig

After my successes on Quinag, I fancied going off to Ben Macdui for a wee bit more distance and ascent. Choosing to get onto the plateau via the ridge between Coire an Lochain and Lurchers Crag would mean I would have other options too should I need to change my plan.  read more ...

Quinag - Sail Gharbh

Thursday afternoon saw me heading to the west coast for a stroll on Quinag, just north of Loch Assynt, the following day. I'd pencilled in just the highest top Sail Gharbh but printed my map to include all 3 corbetts - Sail Gharbh - the rough heel, Sail Ghorm - blue heel, and Spidean Coinich - mossy or boggy peak.  read more ...

A tough walk to Sgor Gaoith

Continuing warming up from the depths of lockdown 2, I thought a trip to Sgor Gaoith (meaning peak of the wind) would stretch the leg muscles quite a bit. I was right.  read more ...

Glas Maol and Cairn of Claise

Or rather how not to do Tolmount and Tom Buidhe.  read more ...

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 ...
