The first of this years big hikes in April 2015, we set out to complete a section of the Rob Roy Way from Aberfoyle to Killin over three days.
And since we were feeling fit, on day two we also took on Ben Ledi, which is a Corbett nestling on the edge of Callander. We’re tough like that.
I always wanted to walk some of the hills in Assynt and this week I did just that. I walked Canisp and was nearly snowed and hail stoned back down to the roadside.
A far finer experience was Stac Pollaidh, one of those hills that has icon status. The hill was inviting and the weather more so. A glorious afternoon of curious shaped rocks and gobsmacking views of Suilven and further afield. I left the scrambling until next time.
Mayar and Dreish
A lovely trip into Angus for some camping and walking. Corrie Fee was stunning.
This is the story of our West Highland Way trip. We walked the Way from Milngavie to Fort William in 7 days (Thank god we didn’t try for 5…). Those 7 days were some of the best days I’ve ever experienced with a mix of fun, adventure, banter, wildlife, gorgeous views and a great feeling of achievement. I’m genuinely sad it’s over (although my legs and I have been forced to disagree on this point). Thanks to all those who were involved, whether walker, supporter or feral animal.
