Ben Donich

Last weekend, my dad and I headed up to Loch Lomond to blow away some of the summer cobwebs, we planned to do a bit of kayaking on the Saturday and take a jolly up Ben Donich on the Sunday morning. However, either being optimists or idiots, neither of us checked the weather forecast… WeContinue reading “Ben Donich”

Honeymoon Bridge

I woke up on Sunday hangover free and full of good intentions, Scotland’s weather forecast, however, did not… The plan was to climb a Munro, just past Arrochar, but driving up there, realised the Scottish weather was going to get the better of me, it was blowing a hooley with low clouds and drizzly rainContinue reading “Honeymoon Bridge”

Ben Vane

This was, hands down, the hardest hill I’ve ever climbed. Ben Vane, is described as only just reaching munro status at 915 metres. So, if like naïve, little me, you think this will be a nice, easy stroll – you are very much mistaken. Ben Vane is one of the Arrochar Alps, standing slightly separateContinue reading “Ben Vane”

The Arrochar Trail

Soooo I was super productive last Sunday and managed to fit in a quick hill walk before my mum was up looking for her Mother’s Day presents. I also realised this would have been a good walk for any active mums before going for a nice Mother’s Day lunch but as usual I was soContinue reading “The Arrochar Trail”

Ben Arthur’s Bothy

It’s not often I get to say this, but the weather was amazing in Scotland over the weekend. It was still FREEEZING (obvs) but the sun was out, and everyone was absolutely buzzin’. And what better way to enjoy the weather than with a hill walk and a trip to the pub?! After spending theContinue reading “Ben Arthur’s Bothy”

The Cobbler

I had initially been put off climbing The Cobbler as it seems like everyone and their granny climbs it but after doing it I can see why… The Cobbler (also known as Ben Arthur) is found in Arrochar, just passed Tarbet, about an hour’s drive from Glasgow, with CityLink buses available also. It is famousContinue reading “The Cobbler”

The Falls of Falloch

This Sunday was spent longer in the car than actually walking, with disaster upon disaster but we definitely had a good laugh. Me and my friend headed up towards Loch Lomand, backpacks fully loaded and kitted up; we had planned to climb Ben Vane so were psyching ourselves up for this massive climb, we wereContinue reading “The Falls of Falloch”

Dun Na Cuaiche

For any newbie hill walkers like myself, this is a great, short, steep walk up to an 18th-century watchtower above Loch Fyne, overlooking Inveraray; the views are incredible, at 700 ft. this is an easier hill and suitable for little ones. The drive up is just as beautiful; a straight road from Glasgow, over theContinue reading “Dun Na Cuaiche”
