Moruisg

After the failure to get up a hill near Braemar a few weeks ago I thought it was about time to get a success. Moruisg is south of Achnasheen on the way into Glen Carron. Whilst the short summit ridge is scattered with rock the approach is across moorland with a large side order of peat bog. It also includes a section of steep ground much of which is also wet, the ground didn't dry out at all until close to the top.  read more ...

Maol Chean-Dearg - from Coulags, Strathcarron

Maol Chean-Dearg means the bald red head hill on account of the lower slopes being quartzite but the top is of red Torridonian sandstone.  read more ...

Carn Bhac, Glen Ey, Braemar

Carn Bhac meaning rocky hill of the peat banks. In practise it's a bump surrounded by boggy tiger-striped heathery peat hags capped with a scattering of quartzite boulders. The approach via Glen Ey, between Braemar and the Linn of Dee, is quite pretty, you pass the interestingly named The Colonels Bed, and old ruined walls hint at time of a once much greater occupation. But my eye's are drawn to the stark green and purple stripes from muirburn. It's the 8th of August, it'll soon be a poor time to be a grouse. "Welcome to the moor", indeed.  read more ...

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 ...
