Troutbeck Club Trip

EOSM club flyout to Troutbeck in the Lake District, blessed by beautiful smooth flying conditions, continuous sunshine and occasional tailwinds. Why can't they all be like that? 20 September 2019, 33 photos

USA 2019 Highlights

Amazing holiday to the western USA showing Kim and James around all my favourite American destinations. 7 July 2019, 102 photos

Glencoe Flight

Gift voucher flight with old RBS chum who wanted to see some Munros. We must have seen 100, at least! 28 June 2019, 6 photos

Glen Rosa

Followed the weather to Arran, camped at Glen Rosa and then had a birthday walk up Goatfell from Glen Rosa. It's an excellent approach to the hill, even with a mild hangover! 14 June 2019, 7 photos

Damp Gigha

The weather may have been damp but it couldn't dampen our spirits as an intrepid few made it to Gigha and fewer still stuck it out for the weekend and were rewarded with time to explore the island on foot rather than by air. Good company and always good fun - what microlighting is all about. 19 May 2019, 15 photos

Torridon Mini Break

Crammed as much as possible into a day and a half of brilliant spring weather Torridon. Tandemed to Diabeag and then a longer circuit via Kinlochewe, Achnasheen and Lochcarron. Then bagged the southern/eastern Munro of Beinn Eighe on the last morning before the long drive home. 13 April 2019, 20 photos

La Thuile

Four more mid-term skiing days with James, in La Thuile this time, so that he could show me around the place he had his school trip last year. Excellent skiing on uncrowded pistes with no queues, even during our school holidays - well worth giving it a go. 12 February 2019, 18 photos


My 200th Munro (and 201st) after a Hogmanay wild camp near Braemar to see in the New Year. These 200 have taken 35 years or so - a rate at which the remaining 82 will take a very long time. 1 January 2019, 12 photos

Mallorca Cycling

Tandeming holiday to Mallorca - the ultimate road cycling destination - 200-odd miles, all of it uphill, or it least it felt like that! 15 October 2018, 28 photos
