Almost Done in the Arrochar Alps: Beinn Bhuidhe

After around 7 months of not being allowed to travel, I finally got the chance to increase my Munro tally. I opted for Beinn Bhuidhe, an outlier from the main Arrochar Alps and my last Munro to ‘bag’ in the area. Ticking this mountain off left me with one left, then I’ll finally have summited…

Mountains, Midges and Many Miles: A Cairngorms Adventure

For some reason, any camping trip to the Cairngorms (this was my 3rd) I undertake seems to be in peak Midge season, but that didn’t put me off from organising another overnight adventure in one of my favourite places. Slowly but surely, I’m working my way through all of the Munros in the Cairngorms and…

A Fine Day in Perthshire: Ben Vorlich & Stuc a’Chroin

After a successful trip a few weeks earlier taking in Ben Lui and Beinn a’Chleibh, Sarah and I were keen to get back out and get up some more new mountains. We opted for 2 well known hills in Perthshire – Ben Vorlich and Stuc a’Chroin. [June 2019] I always enjoy a drive through the…

Munro Bagging in Argyll: Ben Lui & Beinn a’Chleibh

After some spectacular views on my recent Goatfell summit camp, I was keen to get out and bag some new hills. With some good weather approaching again, I opted for Ben Lui and its neighbour, Beinn a’Chleibh, a round that looked pretty easy and very picturesque. The picturesque bit was definitely true, but I’m not…

A Fine Winter’s day: Schiehallion

A great winter’s day on Schiehallion, a very popular Munro in Perthshire. Although the weather was calm and reasonably cloudless, the conditions weren’t really “wintery”, with only a small dusting of snow, meaning once again crampons and ice axes were carried but not needed. Still, great conditions made for a brilliant and easy-going day out…

Signing Off the Summer: Camping High on Ben Starav

A fantastic way to sign off a great summer of adventure by enjoying a spectacular summit camp on Ben Starav, before taking in Beinn nan Aighenan and Glas Bheinn Mhor. [September 2018] For my last chance at wild camping and Munro-bagging before starting my final year at university, I wanted to try and pick somewhere…

A Spectacular Day in Glen Coe: Creise and Meall a’Bhuiridh

After a great trip to the east of the country to visit Mayar and Dreish, it was time to head west again to visit Glen Coe and head up Creise and Meall a’Bhuiridh, 2 spectacular Munros giving an excellent ridge walk and some stunning views. These were my 30th and 31st Munros. [July 2018] Having…

Hiking in the Heat: Mayar and Driesh

In order to make the most of the amazing weather we had been blessed with in Scotland, Sarah and I decided to take a trip to the Angus glens, an area of Scotland I’d never been to, but one that I was keen to explore to enjoy the different landscapes on offer compared to the…

Munro Bagging in the Mamores

After a couple of successful solo wild camping trips on Arran and a hankering to bag as many Munros as possible this summer, I decided to embark on probably my most ambitious overnight trip yet – a solo wild camp in the Mamores. With some good weather approaching and a free week in an otherwise…

The Cairnwell Munros: A Glen Shee Adventure

The end of exam time meant I was finally free for the summer and, with some good weather approaching, it was the perfect time to bag a few Munros before heading off to Iceland for a week. The Munros of choice were the Cairnwell Munros, a group of 3 easy(ish) hills on the western side…

A Cloudy Start to the Year: Ben Chonzie

After a long few months of uni and a washout easter break, it was great to get a day off and head up Ben Chonzie, a munro in Perthshire, even if the weather wasn’t all it was cracked up to be. Still, reaching 20 Munros was a good feeling, and has left me itching to…
