Angels & Demons

Friday 24th – Saturday 25th June 2022 Cairngorms What were you doing Friday 24th June 2022, midnight? Well let me tell you a little story about where I was….and so it begins! We were itching to go on a wild camp, somewhere in the middle of nowhere, somewhere remote, somewhere in the mountains. It had…

North West Highlands

Friday 2nd June – Sunday 4th June 2022 Beautiful things don’t ask for attention 💙 A good weather front was being predicted so there was only one real destination on our list for this weekend – TORRIDON. Torridon has to be one of my favourite spots in Scotland. It’s rugged, it’s handsome, it’s harsh, it’s…

Glencoe Area

Saturday 28th – Sunday 29th May 2022 We were up in Glencoe for another weekend ticking off some more Munro’s we’ve still to undertake in this area.  The ones left are more off the beaten track which is ideal.  As much as I love Glencoe, it has become very very touristy.  The A82, what I…

Scottish Highlands

Friday 13th-Sunday 15th May 2020 Aviemore Glencoe We decided to head up north for another weekend in the Highlands. I simply love escaping up here anytime I can. We had no major plans other than hopefully bagging another Munro which we were still undecided about. We left Friday night slowly making our way up towards…

Going Solo

May 2022 Cairngorms “Don’t be scared to hike alone.  Don’t be scared to like it”. My partner in crime was working all weekend and the weather was looking not too shabby.  I was at a loose end.  I could either stay home and possibly get bored, even sulk, hike somewhere local, pass the time doing…

March – April 2022 Ben Challum An Caisteal Beinn a’Chròin Càrn na Caim A’Bhuidheanach Bheag Over the past few week we have managed to squeeze in a few Munro’s.  Each has presented its very own weather outlook from hiking through deep snow to hiking in a hot, almost summer like kind of day. Our first…

Beinn à Chochuill & Beinn Eunaich

Saturday 12th – Sunday 13th March 2022 Argyll & Bute In a tranquil setting nestled on the banks of Loch Awe in its own sheltered bay, sits Taychreggan Hotel and this is where we would spend our last two nights, a gift we received well over a year ago but which kept getting cancelled due…

Argyll & Bute

Friday 11th March 2022 Argyll & Bute Knapdale is a beautiful and unspoilt area of Argyll, bounded to the south by the Kintyre peninsula and to the north by the Crinan Canal. Its coastline is deeply indented by a series of sea lochs. Perhaps the most beautiful of these is Loch Sween, which stretches north…

Seil

Seil, Slate Islands Thursday 10th March 2022 We were off to explore another Island, Seil. Seil is one of the Slate Islands (the most northerly), located on the east side of the Firth of Lorn, approximatley 7 miles southwest of Oban, in Scotland.  These Islands are known as the Slate Islands because in the mid-19th…

Ben Cruachan

Wednesday 9th March 2022 Ben Cruachan, Argyll & Bute Today with weather conditions still looking good but changing in the next day or two we took the opportunity of climbing Ben Cruachan.  Weather forecast predicted 90% chance of cloud free Munro’s here. Ben Cruachan is said to be one of the finest Munros in the southern…
