An Outdoors Family fundraiser

The challenge: 20+ munros in 4 weeks…We’ve done it!

Well what a month it was! 4 weeks spent together, travelling around Scotland and bagging in total 22 of Scotland’s most family friendly munros, the majority of which were new to us. We walked 104km and climbed 7500m of ascent. We set on this challenge to raise money for a cause very close to our […]

Munro possibilities for our summer fundraising challenge

As many of you will know, we’ve set ourselves a summer challenge of walking 20+ munros with our 5yo son in 4 weeks, starting at the beginning of July, raising money for Tommy’s at the same time. A munro is a mountain which is 3000ft+ and our son has walked 22 munros to date. This challenge […]

Summer is fast approaching and we’re looking forward to it. Our son’s first year at school has gone quickly and we’re excited to be spending as much time as possible outside with him.

Trip report; Boys day at Meall Chuaich

Autumn half term started with a weekend of perfect sunny still weather forecast and so I was keen to get out with our son on a mountain. It was going to be a boy’s day, so leaving Stacey at home and not wanting to plan too big, I decided on a slightly different approach. Many of […]

Trip report; Ben Lawers and Beinn Ghlas

Recently we took advantage of good autumn weather for an ascent of Ben Lawers and Beinn Ghlas, which tower above Loch Tay. With the shorter days we packed the night before and set off early to give ourselves the time we needed. The drive along the Tay valley was dismal, with thick fog for most […]
