2001 Reviews:

Jon Metcalf

Ailsa Craig: Essex-like sea for the 90-minute sunbathe in the back of the boat, fascinating island paraphernalia, marvellous bird-loaded cliff columns, Ann B's 99% completion dram, and a sea-cooled beer for the return from the inspired Mr Clarke.

Arkle: A great day on an absolute classic with the straydogs. Paul and I both got through the kind of route which gives us day-mares. Still ridiculously happy at showing almost normal levels of bottle despite being a confirmed non-dangling rambler. Alison Richardson nominated for supreme patience in the face of blousy quaking by the humble males in the party.

Carn a'Ghaill (Canna): Rum's verdant flanks on one hand, and Skye's Coir a'Grunnda ember red in the fading sunset on the other. Visual quality overload.

Beinn na Gucaig (4B): A so-so climb via our route (forest road ramble followed by a grass slope up like the side of a house), but from the southern top back to the forestry park a marvellous Catbells-like rolling ridge down. Balcony views over the Corran ferry, and down a silvery Loch Linnhe to Mull.
