/ NEW ARTICLE: Winter mountaineering in North West Scotland
Routes that are often best approached in a 'traditional' way, with one axe and an exploratory attitude.

Think I might need to add 'Deep South Gully' to my 'to do' list. That's a cracking looking route. Good article too.
Good article but almost every place-name is spelled incorrectly.

That's a bit of a harsh statement. Which place names are incorrect ? I'm struggling to find one never mind "almost every one".

excellent article, but to an extent, Geoffrey Michaels has a point, albeit somewhat exagerated, for example, Beinn Alligan (Beinn Alligin), Fuar Thol (Fuar Tholl).
Beinn Alligan, Stuc a Choire Dhuibh, An-Teallach, A Chioch - Beinn Bhan, Tom na Gruagaic, Beinn Damph, Fuar Thol,
Ok I exagerated but you get the point. Proof reading is handy.
Great shots, inspiring stuff.

Still reckon you were harsh. You came across as a bit dismissive because of a couple of spelling mistakes on an otherwise okay article. I'm sure An-Tealach is correct. As is A Chioch on Beinn Bhan. Don't know about the others as I've no idea where they are.
By the way, you miss spelled exaggerated. Proof reading is handy before posting.
A really good article that reminded me of my own initial excursions into the area.
The photographs are among the best I've seen of the region's mountains in winter. Impossible not to get a real sense of "being there". Great stuff.

No, there's no hyphen, and it should be a double ll.
That should be misspelled. Proof reading is ... oh, never mind.
I thought it was a good article, but it was the photos that did it for me - the place looks absolutely glorious!
I particularly support the bit at the end about 'forget you are a climber and take a single axe and less gear'. Some of my best days in the hills ever are winter days out in the NW in that very style!
Superb article (despite the spelling errors) - the shots from Liathach are nothing short of inspirational.
Perfect! We're off up there in Feb for a week, and non technical grade I and II routes are just what we're after.
Great pics and some nice inspiration there :)
Loved it! The spelling errors fade into the background amid those images. Its made me want to head up there NOW. Although, its gone a bit toasty outside.
I should say that the article is great as are the images. About 60 miles from where I live....;-)
I think that's about right.
By the way, you miss spelled exaggerated.
Love it :D
A wonderful article, exactly what I want from UKC. More like this please!

You mean on UKH! Oh & I really enjoyed the Article and Photos. I will get weather like that hopefully one day in the far NW. Only been waiting 40yrs!!!
Excellent article & fantastic photography ! Wonderful .
Excellent article and as someone else said, the fots are fab.

'Tom na Gruagaich', 'Fuar Tholl' and 'Beinn Alligin' .. let you off with that though because chances are the OS map I have is out of date and it's the anglicised version of Beinn └illeagan. And as we all know the anglicised versions are all wrong. :-) and indeed :-p
Brilliant article, fantastic photos. Well done.
Nice article and fabulous photos. The Liathach and An Teallach traverses have been two of my favourite trips of the last couple of years as well...great to see someone getting off the beaten track and being so enthusiastic about it :o)
Brilliant winter photography.
great photos. nice article. couldnt give a feck how you spell.
