How do I know? Practice RB... 

Maps, books, route reports and repetition mainly. These are my 'local' hills ( an hour or so away) so I've been up and around the area a lot, and I've walked several of them many times. The hills at Arrochar are known as the Arrochar Alps 

This is The Cobbler and Beinn Narnain from the hill - they're part of that group of hills along with Ime.

Jo- Lyn has reported the pix. They will deal with it - Monday I expect. Don't let that stop you contributing here. I'm no prude - but I personally thought it overstepped the mark too.

A few from today - same hill as the one above. Temps were much lower so lots of icy bits and pieces.

Left to right - Beinn an Lochain, Stob Coire Creagach ( above tiny Loch Restil) Beinn Luibhean ( which spends a lot of time sitting on the A83 below!) and the summit of Beinn Ime just visible through the cloud.


craggy section of the hill


the adjacent hill to the south east - The Brack



crow just took off - his little feet were cold 




stopped off at Arrochar on the way home to get a pic down Loch Long


Great way to get rid of the cobwebs

Evening lovely people  

BL - that just reminded me of the woman we bought the last house from. She said she wouldn't bother too much since we were doing building work.....and she didn't....

Short walk for me today but very enjoyable. The path was a bit icy in places and temps were low with the wind chill. I'll happily drag some of you out on a walk. Next weekend? 


Didn't stop the usual stupid people out with inappropriate clothing and footwear...complete ar*****es.   

Glad your boots are up to expectations chicky  

Great news doc - long may she continue to improve 

Leftover goulash and veg warming in the oven so no cooking needed.

# without any tears  flumpy... 

I'm off - see you all later - apart from the ones still sleeping off their hangovers and food laden over indulgence! 

Hi everyone

A very sad time for you Clarice. Hope 2016 is a better year for you.

Keep asking questions Andi - it's the only way any of us learn anything! I wish this forum had been around when I started gardening - it would have saved me a fortune  

For a particular query - just start a new thread. It's the quickest way to get a response. There are so many people on here with huge knowledge and experience - and we have a laugh along the way 

Happy New Year and happy gardening

Happy New Year doc, may this year bring you plenty to smile about  - it's a quick run all the way to spring now! 

Is your MIL ok? Big stretch of the road to Braemar has gone.  At least there's a few reasonable detours.

Verd -I'd agree with Dove about the book - go to a big bookshop and browse - and take your time. You'll know when you've found the right one
