Just back from a magical day traversing the wild Monadhliath Mountains from Geal Charn to Corrieyairack Pass visiting Meall na h-Aisre, Gairbeinn and Corrieyairack Hills along the way. I was out with Lynn covering a route that I haven’t done since my TGO Challenge in 2005 when I did the reverse or at last part […]
The weather was looking great as I cycled in from Dalwhinnie first thing to meet up with Duncan and Victoria who had walked in along the lochside yesterday. It was a cold start and once I had made the rendezvous we set off to scramble up Lancet Edge and on to Geal Charn. The snow was […]
Just been guiding a couple of fantastic winter walks for Steven Fallon Mountain Guides up in the hills above the Drumochter Pass with views, snow and sunshine! There’s a write-up on Steven’s Blog!
I’ve been walking with my dad this week and we had some great days out exploring some new Corbetts for my Dad and looking at some alternative routes up them for me. We headed out up Geal Charn from the Dorback Lodge and enjoyed some nice views as well as some cold winds. The next […]
The Ben Alder Hills are definitely soe of my favourite to guide walks in and the weather for my second visit here this year was much better than June. I was guiding a backpacking trip to climb the six Munros in the area for CNDo Scotland. We walked in on a fine afternoon and pitched […]
I was out guiding a short day today, but it was the first proper outing for my client in quite a while and we enjoyed a windy day in the Drumochter hills. The going was good on a fairly wet hillside after the snow had melted in the warm spell on the way up Geal […]
I was guiding five days of walking based in Newtonmore for CNDo Scotland this week in some mixed weather that saw us take full advantage of the central location of Newtonmore. The weather was due to deteriorate through the week so we took advantage of the gentle winds to head west and traverse the Easains in […]
I was guiding a walk in the Drumochter hills for Steven Fallon Mountain Guides today and there’s brief post over on Steven’s blog here.
I was out guiding close to home today with a lovely route taking in Beinn a’Chlachair first then Geal Charn and Creag Pitridh. We really were treated to a classic day out with sunshine, inversions and cold cloudy summits with views in all directions. I’ll let the photographs do the talking I think! We used […]
Wow another wild winter day out guiding for Steven Fallon Mountain Guides today up in Drumochter pass. It was a day that started out with a lot of digging to get the cars safely parked at the start of our route followed by a change in plans due to the windy forecast and sheer volume […]
