With just 4 seconds to spare, Anbhanrían (Féarglas), Wintergreen, CSL and Crackers (Artful) completed a crowdy this morning at Greyfriars and the challenge was successful. Anbhanrían synced 6 medals, and Crackers 7. This is believed to be the most medals ever synced in Turf by individual players! At the start of the day Crackers needed…
I have no idea if “medal syncing” is a term, it’s something that sync nerds too – and bizarrely this is one thing that Google doesn’t help with. This is about Turf and achieving multiple medals on the same take (at the same time). Stay with this, especially if you are interested in a Crowdy…
A wild camping tour of Harris and Lewis from the early part of summer 2016.
A four day trip along the Lewis coast overnighting at Giosla, Dun Carloway and Dalmore.
First part of an unsupported walk from Tarbert (Harris) to Lewis via Glen Uladail
Bivvy at Cravadale walking in from Abhainn Suidhe and Glen Cravadale on North Harris
Reflections of the first part of the SUW from Portpatrick to Beattock
Two days from Sanquhar through Wanlockhead and the Lowther Hills to Beattock on the SUW.
Continuing on the SUW from St John’s towards Sanquhar via Polskeoch including an overnight on Benbrack.
Most of the Southern Upland Way from Bargrennan to St John’s of Dalry passes through the Galloway Forest Park. It could just about be done in a long day, although most people will take at least two, more if you plan diversions such as climbing the Merrick. There are no services on this section so…
This first section of the Southern Upland Way is likely to take most people 2 to 3 days to complete. There is a good bothy about halfway at Laggangarn (where you can also camp), but otherwise no accommodation, shops or pubs once you’ve left the Stranraer area. Bargrennan has a hotel/restaurant.
With a new Trailstar and some other gear to get to know, I looked at a weekend a bit closer to home; a Pentland Hills circuit from Livingston. It was one of the coldest nights of the year and everything worked just fine.
This is part two of my hike from Aviemore to Forres during a mild December 2015. This section follows the entire course of the Dava Way and ends with an overnight camp in the Culbin Forest at Forres.
With a few days off between Christmas and New Year, I headed up to Aviemore to walk through to Forres via the Speyside Way to Grantown-on-Spey and then the Dava Way. This post is in two parts, the first the Speyside Way and the second the Dava Way.
Three nights wild camping and exploring the Culbin and Roseisle Forests from Nairn, Moray. Route through Forres, Kinloss and Findhorn.
A two night trip from Biggar in the Scottish Borders into the hills by nearby Drumelzier. Camping by Drumelzier and on Pykestone Hill.
