Meall Ghaordaidh

By Phil on 2014.01.12 In Munros

Seeing as I have set myself a goal of competing all 282 Scottish Munro mountains over he coming years, I thought I better get a move on and start bagging some. I also thought it was a good chance to start my Polar training.



Lucky the Edinburgh Young Walkers group I joined late last year were doing their first winter walk of 2014 and heading to Meall Ghaordaidh. A great chance to bag my 3rd Munro as well as try out my new winter walking boots, crampons and my new digital camera. Och aye!

Now I know what you are thinking. Why have I joined the Edinburgh Young Walkers group when I live nowhere near Edinburgh. Or maybe you were thinking how can I get in a “Young” walkers group at my age! Anyway they let me in and they often do Munro’s so why not. Also a great chance to meet fellow wannabe Munroists.

There was only seven of us doing Meall Ghaordaidh Munro. Quite a small number compared to other walks, probably due to potential bad weather, but we decided to chance it anyway. And so glad we did as we had perfect winter weather conditions. Clear blue skies and lots of snow. Though was very windy at the top but that was nothing when wearing ski goggles. We even managed some crazy bum seat sledging in. What a day!

Welcome to my blog about hiking, trekking, Fjällräven Polar 2014, in fact anything where you require boots and the outdoors.

My name is Phil, and following my outdoor epiphany which started in the summer of 2012 I’m now hooked on everything outdoors. So far my biggest treks have included the 250km Cathar Way, the 170km Tour du Mont Blanc and best of all, winning 1st place to take part in the Fjällräven Polar in April 2014.

I plan to use this blog to write about all my adventures, which will include my personal goal of becoming a Munroist (completing all 282 Scottish Munro mountains), summer treks, weekends in the Lakes and many more.

I like to try and make my blog posts humorous so I hope you enjoy reading and that I can put a smile on people’s faces while showing you some amazing places.

If you have any questions about the blog or the places I'm writing about, don't hesitate to contact me on: phil@philyourboots.com
