Hillwalking

The Glen Falloch experience

After last week’s epic adventure up and around Ben Lui, I thought I'd go for something a bit easier and shorter this time round. So I set my sights on either An Caisteal & Beinn a'Chroin or Cruach Ardrain & Beinn Tulaichean from the layby where the River Falloch meets the A82…

Triple my tally on the Ben Lui foursome

I'm quickly adding some notches to the old Munro tally now! I joked about doubling or tripling my tally last week but I really fancied doing these four the more I looked into it. Initially I was going to do just Ben Lui…

Double my tally on Ben Vane

Having done my first Munro in April, I eventually got round to doing my second today. Chose the smallest of all the Munros thinking it would be fairly easy but this Ben Vane is a steep wee hill. Unfortunately, just like the last two weeks I've been out, there was a lot of low cloud…

A dreich day on Fhidhleir

I noticed this awesome looking ridge a lot recently in the background of some of the other walks I'd done in the area and thought it looked worth a punt. Not many reports on here for it so I was worried it might not have been worth the effort but turns out it was…

Ben Donich – Ease myself back in

It took about 6 weeks but I eventually managed to get back on the hills last weekend with Magz n Gaz after my nasty knee injury. Still sore but just couldn't wait any longer, was desperate to get out there and I'm glad I did! Ben Donich was the hill of choice this time…

Beinn Narnain – First Munro!

So I conquered my first Munro this week which should have been a joyful experience but turned out the complete opposite! A disaster to say the least. Two days before, I was up the Kilpatrick Hills doing some mountain biking and basically wrecked my bad knee when landing a jump…

A real hill! Beinn an Lochain

Well after my fairly easy introduction to hillwalking a few days ago, I decided I wanted something a little less hilly and a little more rocky! My dad mentioned Beinn an Lochain and when looking it up, it looked right up my alley. I was not disappointed…

First hillwalk – Beinn Dubh

I've been wanting to get into hillwalking for a good while now and eventually started this week. Asked around and looked on the internet for an easy first one and decided on Beinn Dubh. From the bottom it looked pretty easy but considering I’ve been out with injuries…
