Glencoe, 30-31 August 2019

The SMC hut at Lagangarbh – photo above – was the venue for this meet; we had most of the twenty available bunks. We were joined by a group of four who took up the SMC places, but even this young and fit group thought twice about tackling one of the easier ridges of Buachaille […]

Strathfarrar, 4 August 2019

There was a queue at the Strathfarrar gate as we rolled up for the appointed opening time of 9am. Admittedly, the queue was only two vehicles, both of which set off on the stroke of nine. Our party had a more leisured approach in deciding what hills were to be climbed, where to park and […]

Beinn Airigh Charr, 21 July 2019

The unsettled weather altered our plan to wild camp on the Letterewe Hills and traverse the Corbetts of Beinn Airigh Charr and Ben Lair. We decided instead to have a day meet biking in to the end of the track, and walking in on the well made path to Beinn Airigh Charr.  This was not […]

Strawberry Cottage, Glen Affric, 5-7 July 2019

Chrysanthemum Hill, as our non Gaelic speaking members christened Sgurr nan Ceathramhnan, saw a fair bit of activity on our Strawberry Cottage weekend. Six different parties ranged over the various ridges and tops of Ceathramhnan and its neighbouring Munros and Corbetts on Saturday. The day started well as most folk popped into Alltbeithe YH for […]

The Loch Lochy hills, Sunday 5 May 2019

Six hardy souls braved an uncertain weather forecast to ascend the hills north of Loch Lochy. They were rewarded by a good day out, with occasional snow showers, a biting wind, and excellent visibility. Sron a’Choire Ghairbh They strolled along the forestry track and up to the col via the Allt Glas Dhoire, thence up […]

Isle of Rum, 12-15 April 2019

There is always a sense of anticipation as the ferry approaches your island destination. Journeying to the Small Isles, and this trip to the Isle of Rum, especially so. The Loch Nevis ro-ro door clanked onto the slipway, and one vehicle was followed by a stream of walkers and cyclists who spilled onto the island. […]

The Carn Deargs in Glen Roy, 7 April 2019

Three parties  of club members, totalling 9 people, meandered around the various Carn Deargs at the head of Glen Roy in thick mist, hence the limited opportunities for photos! Cerian, Daniel, Kirsty R. and John made a round of the two northerly Carn Deargs from Turret Bridge at the head of the glen; photo below. […]

Munro Centenary Wake, 17 March 2019

Tuesday 19th March saw the 100th anniversary of the death of Sir Hugh Munro, the first person to accurately survey Scotland’s highest mountains, the results of which were published in  the first edition of his Tables of Heights over 3000ft in 1891. Up until that point, it was widely believed that only around 30 of […]

Inverardran Cottage, Crianlarich, 22-23 March 2019

The Crianlarich meet was justifiably popular, with eighteen folk making the trip south to an area where there are more Munros, Corbetts, Grahams and other lumps and bumps than you could possibly hope to encounter in a weekend elsewhere.  I should confess at this point that I am just a little biased, since this was […]
