    Went up the cobbler today, thought it was great and going to get back into the hillwalking. Whats your experience and favourite walks in Scotland, would love a few recommendations of good corbets or Monroes.

    I like taking walks up the campsies, dumgoyne etc, always a nice walk up to the Beech Tree pub for a few beers when it's nice.

    Went up Ben Lomond on Tuesday as well, some cracking views and the weather was perfect. Gonna head up Tyndrum and do a bit more next week.

    Climb every mountain,
    Search high and low,
    Follow every byway,
    Every path you know.
    Climb every mountain,
    Ford every stream,
    Follow every rainbow,
    'Till you find your dream.
    A dream that will need
    All the love you can give,
    Every day of your life
    For as long as you live.
    Climb every mountain,
    Ford every stream,
    Follow every rainbow,
    Till you find your dream
    A dream that will need
    All the love you can give,
    Every day of your life,
    For as long as you live.
    Climb every mountain,
    Ford every stream,
    Follow every rainbow,
    Till you find your dream.

    Aye felt that the day stamina was fine but the knees were knackered, brilliant feeling siting at the top having a smoke and listening to shine on you crazy diamonds, that song was made for those views

    Never been involved in Hillwalking as such, but any time i am in a place with a hill as a backdrop i have the urge to climb (or walk)up it.

    Been up Arthurs Seat multiple times, :smiley-laughing002: and views dont come much better than that.

    Wish i had more time to get into it.

    Haha, I done that walk for about a year on an almost daily basis. Quite challenging, especially when you just went shopping and you need to get back up. Some scenes of The Angels Share were shot there.
