Evening (well it is for me)
Some of you seem interested in trips in Scotland – who can blame you :-)
So, for a great resource take a look at Scottish Hills….
A few of my trip reports here:
…..and very many more on the site…lots of planning potential… :-)Jan 16, 2011 at 12:09 pm #1684772
Great write ups. Your country is beautiful, the Crianlarich photograph set was particularly enjoyable to view and read, your cleverness with your words is infectious.
Take care of your patellas romping through those hills…ouch!Jan 16, 2011 at 12:31 pm #1684780
Eugene – what kind words :-)
Best be careful though…it is not my country, I am a sassenach and live 30 miles from the border….
….does not stop me raiding though!Jan 16, 2011 at 1:01 pm #1684798
I had an inkling of a suspicion that I was going to put my foot in my mouth on that one! To my defense, from your photographs, you appear right at home on the peaks of Scotland.
Commence the raiding!Jan 16, 2011 at 1:07 pm #1684805
I was in New Mexico for the first time over Xmas – some nice country that looks well-worth exploring; when one is taking a break from raiding the clans that is..
Some very interesting weather about a bit further Nth from you over that period.Jan 16, 2011 at 1:23 pm #1684814
We have fairly mild weather typically, besides the conditioning required for heat, we are fortunate to bask in clear skies and hot temperatures for a majority of the year. We realistically experience 3-seasons whereas northern New Mexico gets a solid 4 seasons.
I know the inclement weather you speak of, it blew through before the New Year. I posted up a trip report here recently, we were blessed with gusty winds, frigid temps and precipitation… all very uncharacteristic.Jan 17, 2011 at 12:39 pm #1685129

Great shots and reports. My favourite; the view over the bottom end of Ericht to Rannoch.
It also appears that I am following in your footsteps with the GR54. Great shots and interesting having the perspective of someone doing the trip in the other direction!

Cheers – I've got a few muli-day backpacks planned for Scotland this Spring.
The GR54 is great John; if you have any questions or want to borrow any guides or maps let me know.Jan 18, 2011 at 9:58 am #1685518
