I wonder if all those folks parked by the Fairy Pools know that if they just kept driving another ten minutes or so, they would pass some gorgeous meadows and streams and then arrive at a beautiful beach where they can hike up to the...More

I arrived at the lovely little loch in Coire Lagan after having climbed the Inaccessible Pinnacle and Sgurr Mhic Choinnich, and it felt like the worst of the day was now over as the sun came out and we passed people who had just walked...More

It's hard to imagine this walk's challenges and beauties from the numbers--just under 3 miles one-way distance with just under 2,000 feet elevation gain. The reasons to take on this walk and the difficulties of it are quite intermixed. The elevation, for example, is what...More

We thought we were hiking a small mountain, but ended up on this one by accident. What a great accident to happen! The fog was rolling out so as we climbed the better view we had. Bring some supplies with you because it's a good...More

I'm not a proper mountain climber and would never attempt the Cuillins. But climbing up to Coire Lagan was certainly possible and gave extraordinary views of the high peaks all around. It's quite a steep and relentless hike. I would say don't try it unless...More

Once again we visited & luckily it was a perfect day. There does seem to be more walkers/climbers around nowadays, but that's just to be expected. Pity we didn't have the time to continue up to Sgurr Alasdair on this occasion. Although it's quite an...More

Well worth the 600-odd metre ascent. A brooding cauldron ringed by classic black gabbro cliffs and scree. Brilliant glacial features like roches moutonnees and whalebacks, plus geological intrusions of basalt into the gabbro. Spot climbers on the Cioche or scramblers toiling up the Great Stone...More
