Train Adventures: Beinn na Lap

Catching the early train from Fort William complete with our packed breakfast, destination Corrour, little did we know how much fun lay ahead! The Highest Station on Mainland U.K. Corrour is accessible only by train, bike or on foot, so Beinn na Lap makes for an interesting day. It’s an easy munro, feasible to rush … Continue reading Train Adventures: Beinn na Lap

Creag nan Gabhar – first time this year

One of our favourites, today saw us return to Creag nan Gabhar. We were unsure what to expect as the snow appeared to have shifted quite a bit. Mildly optimistic that we might find some on the descent towards Loch Callater, we set off fully loaded with crampons, ice axe and Kahtoolas! Looking back, you’d … Continue reading Creag nan Gabhar – first time this year

A Stunning Winter’s Day on Morrone

Having initially thought it would be a day for Aberdeen parkrun, I was easily swayed when advised that there was not a breath of wind on the hills. Having checked the forecast last night it was apparent that Lochnagar, a winter favourite, was not the best idea due to the direction we’d be heading up. … Continue reading A Stunning Winter’s Day on Morrone

Carn Liath & Carn na Moine from Inverey

Having had a taste of the great outdoors a few days ago we were keen to get out again. Somewhat constrained for time at present, we needed to find a shorter walk, and as usual, Bruce came up trumps! Inverey: unusually quiet! With access to a couple of munros, the large parking area at Inverey … Continue reading Carn Liath & Carn na Moine from Inverey

Final Walk of 2021: Pannanich Hill

Having hoped to be out lots over the festive season, unfortunately we’ve not really managed. The weather’s been changeable and the prospect of fog on the tops has not held much appeal. We were happy to have a clear day on offer today, although the blustery conditions higher up led ‘us’ to make plans for … Continue reading Final Walk of 2021: Pannanich Hill

Tattie Hols in Tyndrum: Part 2

Day 4: Ben Vorlich Following an enjoyable jaunt up Ben Vane yesterday, we decided to return to Inveruglas today to summit the neighbouring Ben Vorlich. Legs feeling a little worse for wear this morning, neither of us were jumping with enthusiasm; however, the prospect of rain all day tomorrow forced us out - there’s only … Continue reading Tattie Hols in Tyndrum: Part 2

Tattie Hols in Tyndrum

Day 1: A Blustery Beinn Ghlas and Ben Lawers Heading off on our holidays, this was a perfect walk on the way to Tyndrum. Having last visited the Ben Lawers car park for Bruce’s final munro, Meall nan Tarmachan, it was good to be back, aside from the fact that there were no parking spaces … Continue reading Tattie Hols in Tyndrum

Rob Roy Way: Aberfeldy to Pitlochry (Day 6)

I started off the day with the best scrambled eggs (and smoked salmon) of the week, following this up with the obligatory catch up on the Olympics while waiting for breakfast to settle. The Last Lap As is always the way with a long distance run (or walk), I had mixed feelings on this final … Continue reading Rob Roy Way: Aberfeldy to Pitlochry (Day 6)

Rob Roy Way: Ardtalnaig to Aberfeldy (Day 5)

Having thought it may be hard going back to where I’d finished the day yesterday, the reality was that it felt great! I had a really settled night last night, feeling very much at home - the upside of having two nights in a B & B is that you can unpack, something I always … Continue reading Rob Roy Way: Ardtalnaig to Aberfeldy (Day 5)

Rob Roy Way: Killin to Ardtalnaig (Day 4)

I was a little nervous as to what I’d waken up to following last night’s downpour! I think it rained throughout the night, although I’m none the wiser whether there was any more thunder or lightning having slept pretty well. I woke at 4 am for a forecast check; sadly it suggested that the rain … Continue reading Rob Roy Way: Killin to Ardtalnaig (Day 4)
