Kintail weekend – South Glen Shiel Ridge conquered (part 2)

After a good (though cold!) nights sleep, we wake up fresh and ready to finish what we’ve started. We were hoping for some spectacular sunrise, but unfortunately we don’t see much from behind a thick cloud – actually a blessing in disguise, as we don’t have much water left, there’s no stream in sight and we have a long day of walking before us. After a quick breakfast of porridge and tea, we strike the camp and head towards Maol […]

Kintail weekend – South Glen Shiel Ridge conquered (part 1)

Kintail is the area in the Western Highlands famed for its long, sweeping ridges, stretching for miles on end and offering beautiful views in every direction. We haven’t yet had a chance to explore this part of Scotland, so when the opportunity presented itself, we didn’t hesitate but packed our bags and headed north to climb the seven Munros of South Glen Shiel Ridge. It takes nearly 4 hours to drive there from Glasgow, so our plan was to arrive […]

In the valley - Munros in Drumochter Pass, Scotland

Indian summer at the Drumochter Four

After a cold, wet and miserable summer, September surprised us with plenty of lovely, dry and sunny days – it would be a sin not to take an advantage of the weather like this, even if it means waking up at 5.30am on a Sunday. This time we chose to climb four Munros located to the west of A9, some four miles from the village of Dalwhinnie (home of the Dalwhinnie Distillery) and right next to the Drumochter Pass, which […]

Ben Vane, Scotland - walking up with Ben Lomond and Loch Lomond in the background

Ben Vane – small hill with great character

At 915m, Ben Vane is the smallest of the 282 Munros, but it doesn’t lack character – steep ascent, several false summits and rocky outcrops dotted around its slopes make it a very interesting mountain to climb. It’s location in the heart of Arrochar Alps also adds to the charm of Ben Vane and on a nice day there are fantastic views all around: Ben Vorlich and Loch Sloy to the north-east, Ben Lomond and the isles of Loch Lomond […]

A trip down memory lane: Armenia 2014

With days getting shorter and temperatures dropping with every passing day, the memories of summer adventures, and planning of the new ones, are what’s going to keep us sane throughout the autumn and winter. This time we would like to share with you some photos we’ve taken during our trip to Armenia in August 2014. This tiny country in the Caucasus Mountains, with the population of just under 3mln, has no equals in terms of the variety of landscapes, but […]

Walking towards Creag Leacach - Glenshee 9 Munros, Cairngorms, Scotland

Glenshee Munros – nine in a bag

We’ve first started climbing the Munros (284 of Scotland’s highest mountains, each over 3000 feet or 914m) almost exactly five years ago, and our plan is to have 100 of them “bagged” by the end of 2015. However, in early August we were only at 76; with the short autumn and winter days quickly approaching, we had to get up to speed with our Munro bagging game. The Cairngorms are a perfect mountain range to climb quite a few Munros […]
