All things hiking Holidays blogs and reviews


A quick album from our Skye Munros trips in 2022 – Skye Black Cuillin Munros (excluding climbing gallery) and Skye Black Cuillin for Hillwalkers, based in Portree.

If you’re considering joining us in 2o23, places are already limited (one place remaining) on the climbing itinerary. Take a look at the images below for an idea of what to expect when you join us next year. As you can see the weather wasn’t always perfect, but there still seem to be lots of smiling faces even if the jackets, hats and gloves did come out on occasion.

Portrait images will not display in the gallery except in landscape format which makes them awkward to view so they are only displayed in the gallery where they are displayed correctly.

For full versions of the images please check out this link to our google album.

Post-pandemic hiking in the Highlands

2021 reviewed – We’ve included some images of our personal explorations this year as we were not able to share our winter with you.

It’s always interesting to look back at the photos you’ve taken during the year. Obviously, we tend to take photos when the weather is better so looking back over them, we get the impression that there have been loads of sunny days.

We did have an exceptional summer this year: we all went for a swim in the river Spey – which has never happened before! Unfortunately there’s no photographic evidence of this. However, check out the pictures from our Cairngorm 4000er trip in July; in contrast to the weather we started off with in Strathfarrar. Thank goodness for hot tenting in the tentipi which allowed us to have a relatively social but warm and socially distanced dinner together.

Thanks to those who have already shared images with us (some of which you might recognise below) particularly Peter Johns, Mayank Balsara, Looi Oon, Rhona Grant and Cassie Ronaldson.

Happy memories!

If you have any other images  you’d like to share with us we always welcome additions to our library!

Autumn Munros

October Munro bagging and wet day substitutes – autumn walks, Scotland

October was a great time for all autumn walks in Scotland. Our Munro baggers who were able to come up and see us were particularly pleased. We almost lost the opportunity to run a trip for our Torridon group when we weren’t able to go to the accommodation we had booked (due to the household mixing rules which came into place from the Scottish Government) but we were still able to substitute a trip based at Fraoch Lodge.

We also ran 2 Munro bagging trips in mid to late October which were well attended within our COVID19 restrictions.

Of course, with all outdoor activities towards the end of the year, you take your chances with the weather, but I think you’ll agree that we certainly managed to strike it pretty lucky for views and all kinds of points of interest to liven up the walks. Andy even found yet another Cairngorm stone to add to his collection (none have been converted into jewelry yet – hint, hint). This one was even more rare – a green Cairngorm, known as a “Beryl” (pictured below).

To see the full selection of images from the Autumn Munros Bash 2020 (and original sizes) please go to the google album.

Other photos from the whole month are included in the gallery. Please comment or contact us directly if you’d like details of any particular photo.
