Latest round done. 42km, 1555m ascent, 11 hours walking. 9 summits, including 2 tops. Weather and ground the worst I’ve ever experienced. Semi-broken. 109 mountains to go, 85 days until time’s up. Need to do much more per walk to get them done. Donat
Ben Lomond looking down on Loch Lomond on a walk from Balloch to Helensburgh last May.

Have you visited the area or climbed Ben Lomond, photos please! #getoutnaboutwithlizzy#benlomond#lochlomond#s
The interior of north Arran is dominated by a ten-kilometre-wide granite pluton formed by magma intrusion 60 million years ago, at the time the Atlantic Ocean was starting to form. This mass of tough igneous rock was in turn dissected by dykes and th
A view to Uyea from the far north of Shetland Mainland. #walkhighlands
Ben Wyvis climbed today...took a chance with the weather & it paid off apart from gale force winds coming back along the ridge & most of the way down. Thankful I’m not a lightweight!
I was very pleased to make it down to the bothy late last night, where I got the stove going and sat huddled in my sleeping bag, questioning my sanity. Amazing places, shepherd’s bothies. Sadly my clothes and I are still wet this morning, but the wea
These hills may look pleasant, like easy walking, but believe me when I say they are tough. I started two hours later than planned because of transport issues, the wind was a steady 50mph, and it rained like even I’ve never seen. I’ve never related f

Today I’m packing to go on holiday! Justin and I are doing the NC500 so hopefully the weather won’t be all bad and we’ll get to see some amazing views!!
Summit of Ben Oss with Ben Lui in the background. We’d thought the hardest part of the day was behind us, but little did we know it was going to get much, much worse with the weather turning quite quickly and having to make a hurried and less than id
A few more weeks to go before another season ends. Another season which has seen its fair share of ups and downs. From the emergency services called for a missing hill walker to the joy of those who have completed their challenge. From sightings of o
So, looked at what walks were available on the Lawers range. There were the usual 5 & 7 Munro’s being bagged but then I came across a variation on the usual 5 Munro’s and a plan was set.
In the order as below, starting from the NTS car park in th
A wee moody shot of glencoe, had been trying to find this wee tree for ages and accidentally stumbled accross it.....Literally on the road side haha braved the mental wind a rain with @graham_williamson_1985 to try get a decent photo of it!
All in a day's hike...at 612m Stac Polly really isn't that high but the views are just phenomenal! Beautiful deep-blue lochs and mountainous ridges stretch out before you from the top. What this photo fails to capture is just how windy it was at the
Caileag is back from school holidays! I bet a lot of parents are breathing a sigh of relief this week, and probably some dogs too Normality resumes
When Bruce, King of Scotland, was getting the worst
Of the war he was waging with Edward the First;
When most of his friends had been captured or slain,
And the sky of Scotland looked very like rain;
When he spent his days hiding in bushes and trees,

Weather looking decent for the weekend and we have 8 munros planned. Fingers crossed everything goes accordingly to plan as I’m choaking for some Mountains
Did I mention it’s 10 weeks on Saturday until I ge
Ever-reliable when you find yourself on steep scree slopes or rocky mountain tops in the Scottish Highlands, this bird is a born survivor.
