26th February 2013 - Sun and snow on Meall Ghaordie
This year in Scotland we had two weeks of mostly beautiful weather. Ruth and I took the chance to climb Meall Ghaordie on a crisp sunny day.
16th-20th May 2012 - Achnasheen
This year I spent five days up north, mostly with my sister, taking in a scattered collection of peaks from the Cairngorms to Torridon. The weather was mixed but mostly dry, the only problem being the amount of snow on the hills, giving the whole trip more the feeling of a winter expedition. It did make for some great views of the hills though. What's up so far:
13th-17th May 2011 - Roy Bridge
It's a miracle! I have finally got around to putting up photos from last May's trip. I have limited each walk to ten photos and all five days are up, culminating in my 200th Munro - Carn Liath above Coire Ardair.
21st April 2011 - A Long Day in Glen Etive
Back in Scotland in April for a change and Ruth and I were off to Glen Etive on a beautiful, if hazy, sunny day to climb Ben Starav and its neighbours. It turned out to be a longer day than we expected.
16th-22nd May 2010 - Pitlochry and Glen Muick
The sunshine had arrived and the midges were still scarce - time to bag a few Munros in May once again. This year I spent a week in Pitlochry and Glen Muick snapping up summits with my sister and alone - and passing that magical '100 to go' mark into the bargain. Here's what's up so far:
17th February 2010 - Crampons in Glen Clova
Once again Ruth and I managed to do a walk together during my annual two week visit to Scotland in February. This year, put off from heading west by avalanche warnings, instead we got out the crampons and ice axes to tackle Mayar and Driesh on what turned out to be a beautiful crisp, sunny day.
10th September 2009 - One less Munro
Yes, it's happened! Accurate measurement of the height of Sgurr nan Ceannaichean in Glen Carron has revealed that, at 913.4m (2996ft), it is a mere Corbett. This brings the number of Munros down to 283, as well as reducing by one the total number climbed by many a disappointed Munroist - including me. Ah well, at least I've climbed one more Corbett now!
