  1. An great report there of an excellent route. The two bothies are crackers, somewhere to return to in future. You pretty much did the same backpack that I did with Peter Edwards in November last year.

    I’m a big fan of Sutherland, a bit like yourself James!
    This was an area I’d planned exploring for quite some time and glad I did as it didn’t dissapoint.
    Did you do a trip report for your outing? Maybe you could point me to it if you did as I don’t recall reading it; I remember plenty of your other posts about that time!

    Lovely photos…I think Stack of Glencoul is one of the great small hills in Scotland. I climbed it as part of a week long trek from Ullapool to C. Wrath. Intended to climb Beinn Leoid too but opted to leave it for another day…

    Thanks James, it is a great outing and just getting to and from the hill is a mini-adventure in itself.

  5. Hi Paul, I try to reach you this way because your e-mail ( gave a dilivery faillure.

    I started a blog about the nature of the Cantabrian Mountains (northern Spain), which will have a lot of information about walking and landscape, and also about wild flowers (orchids), animals and geology which can be found in this region.
    I think those mountains are a lovely place for walking.

    I invite you to have a look, and if you think it´s worth it, I would appreciate a link from your website.

    Sincerely yours,

    Marius van Heiningen
