Munro Top Compleation

26 03 2017

As I couldn’t get booked in anywhere on any of the weekends, my Munro Top Compleation is now unfortunately going to be mid-week!

Thu 18 May on An Teallach

All those with a head for heights welcome if you can get time off… Read the rest of this entry »





The Crookdale Horseshoe

15 03 2017

Tue 14 Mar 2017
Richard and I were staying at our favourite hotel in Kendal again and, after he’d walked with me on the Monday, he couldn’t face another day ploutering around Outlying Wainwrights so he went off to Windermere on the train and I went and did this round. Like the t’other Wasdale Round next to it which I did last time, I enjoyed the remoteness of this one too… not sure about Wainwright’s route though! Read the rest of this entry »

12 01 2017

Tue 22 November 2016
I was a bit miffed to see this first thing in the morning (Skiddaw, my favourite winter mountain caked in snow) and then to have to turn away and do a tiddler around the back of the hotel!

t’Other Wasdale Round

14 12 2016

Richard and I were staying at the lovely Best Western ‘Castle Green Hotel’ in Kendal – becoming a favourite of ours, especially in cold weather as it’s convenient, well equipped and very warm, quiet and comfortable.

I’d had a terrible day chest-wise the day before re-doing part of my earlier Potter Fell round as I needed to do Brunt Fell – I was basically knackered all the way round. I decided to pick the easiest day out of all the remaining Outlying Wainwrights I had to do in the area – Richard went boozing in Kendal instead as this isn’t his sort of thing!

Castell Dinas Bran, Llangollen

2 12 2016

Mon 24 Oct 2016
On our way out of Shropshire, we’d hoped to go to the famous Stiper Stones but it wasn’t to be… the morning yielded very low cloud yet again – we could barely see to drive over the Long Mynd road so it wasn’t worth going to see the spectacular rock tors… Read the rest of this entry »
