  1. How did you get on with access to these? I was looking at doing this route soon but read about access restrictions for vehicles to the Glen.
  2. Did the Carn Mairg Circuit from Invervar just north of Loch Tay yesterday. Weather was amazing, almost too hot, but it's a cracking round of hills and on a clear day like yesterday the views are second to none. There was a river just down from the car park that was good for a swim afterwards, if anyone is planning on doing this round in the near future with the good weather still here I'd definitely advise taking a towel and heading down there afterwards. One thing of note, the walk highlands guide reads "On leaving the summit retrace your steps briefly; you can either head over the west top or bypass it on the north side to begin the descent down the long ridge on the south side of the Allt Coire a'Chearcaill. There is a clear path down this ridge which has great views of Glen Lyon ahead" Watch out here, If you head over the west top, this to me on the day read as though you should head S straight after, this is not the case and takes you off on what looks like a ridge but actually isn't, way off track. What you really have to do is head almost NW to find the ridge path, which isn't clear here.
  3. If you are only going to have a limited time then why not go for one of the big ones, either the Aonach Eagach ridge or a day on Buachaille Etive Mor. Haven't done either yet but heard really good things about both. Especially with the weather being so good at the moment. https://www.walkhighlands.co.uk/fortwilliam/aonacheagach.shtml https://www.walkhighlands.co.uk/fortwilliam/buachailleetivemor.shtml Alternatively, for an easier hike I could suggest Buachaille Etive Beag, its a fairly easy walk up to the bealach then you can decide if you want to take in both Munros or just one. https://www.walkhighlands.co.uk/fortwilliam/buachailleetivebeag.shtml The Lost Valley also a cracking walk, but not involving any hills. https://www.walkhighlands.co.uk/fortwilliam/lostvalley.shtml
  4. Been nomming utter shite over the festive period apart from a barry Xmas dinner.
  5. Pretty certain it's knocked down now, been in before though and made some pretty decent discoveries. All the old furniture is there, old rooms which clearly held some complete psychos, underground tunnels, storerooms etc. We found a filing cabinet filled with Documents on case files for patients, workbooks helping the patients to be eased back into society with things as basic as teaching them how to buy something from a shop. Surprised no one has mentioned Bangour, it's and old War/Mental Hospital which is really an abandoned village with a large number of abandoned buildings over a very vast space. Has a Mortuary, Church, Bowling Green, a number of Wards and Hospitals and other Buildings such as accomodation. It has Phone Boxes, Bus Stops the lot. Finding the Mortuary in the pitch black was absolutely shittning. All the old graves have been dug up and it's tucked right at the back of the complex, very scary. Theres videos on Youtube about the place and from people doing Urbex. Also a film with was made there, i think it was called The Jacket and stars Keira Knightley. It's in West Lothian just next to Dechmont by the way..
