Signing Off An Awesome Summer: Summit Camping in Argyll

After a busy summer where I tried my best to make up for missing out on lots of opportunities last year, I managed to squeeze in one last trip before the end of the season. With only an afternoon and a morning free, it would have to be a quick one, so I opted for…

Return to Glenshee: The Glas Maol Circuit

The second day of myself and Sarah’s hill walking trip, this time in the Cairngorms national park on what was an absolutely scorching day. We opted to continue the multi-Munro theme and bagged the 4 Munros to the east of Glenshee Ski Centre on what was a glorious day for a hill walk. [July ’21]…

More Munros in Perthshire: Glen Lyon 4

A satisfying day out in Glen Lyon, bagging 4 Munros in the popular circuit to the north of the glen. This was the first day of a 2-part adventure for Sarah and I in an effort to make the most of a great spell of weather and tick off some hills. [July ’21] So far,…

A Munro Milestone: Beinn Eunaich & Beinn a’Chochuill

Sarah and I enjoyed a fairly easy circuit of 2 Munros – Beinn Eunaich and Beinn a’Chochuill – in Argyll. We split the journey with a stay in Tyndrum to get an earlier start on the hill and miss some heavy rain that was forecast for later in the day. Thankfully our plan worked and…

Above the Clouds: A Stunning Trip in the Trossachs

With a fantastic spell of weather due during the week, I found it impossible not to take some time off work to make the most of the clear blue skies, high temperatures and light winds across much of Scotland. Due to time constraints, I settled on a trip to the Trossachs to take in 4…

A First Taste of Torridon: Beinn Eighe

The week after my epic Kintail adventure, Sarah and I enjoyed a week away in Gairloch. Naturally, we wanted to include some hills as part of our trip and opted for a couple of the Torridon Munros in the form of Beinn Eighe. [June ’21] Thankfully this trip didn’t start with a drive from Ayrshire…

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…

First Wild Camp of the Year: Caisteal Abhail

After a very long time since my last wild camp, I was buzzing with excitement to finally get on the ferry and over to one of my favourite places – the beautiful Isle of Arran – for my first wild camp of the year. The most difficult part of organising myself was deciding where to…

A Winter Outing on Arran: The ‘3 Beinns’ Loop

With a wee break in the weather approaching and a dusting of snow fairly early on in the winter season, I was keen to get a trip to the hills in as it had been a few months since my last outing. I was on my own, so opted for a familiar route that I…

Redemption in the Arrochar Alps: Stob Coire Creagach

After a failed attempt at Stob Coire Creagach a couple of years before in winter, I thought it was about time I gave this ‘wee’ mountain another go and tick off another one of the Arrochar Alps. The fact that it was a near perfect day for walking certainly didn’t make this rugged Corbett any…
