Excellent bookshop on the High Street.
Going to be there from Sunday with family, forecast is shocking, but if it's good, hoping for a couple of Glen Nevis sessions, if it's not, 3 Wise Monkeys / Ice Factor / any other suggestions anyone has in the wet, if anyone fancies meeting up.
Fort William in the rain for the next week and a half
Quote from: sherlock on October 15, 2021, 04:26:39 pmExcellent bookshop on the High Street.I second this, great climbing and mountaineering section. Got loads of old copies of things like Crags, OTE, etc for less than a quid each. I came away with a few, including one that made a very low key announcement of the FA of Comes the Dervish - they didn't show indication of how notable it would end up.
Make a start on Andy's list Chris! The wall at Sanna dries instantly and its a magic spot whatever the weather. Ardnamurchan Lighthouse has a good caff too. Arisaig cave might also offer a dry boulder, though a bit far to drag family. Or a day trip to Oban? Good cafes, good distillery tour, and the brandy stone! The bolted routes there dry in a few hours too. SAMS at dunstaffenage have a cool little ocean explorer outreach centre and the café there is pretty good now aswell. It's worth a visit along with the beach and castle there. If its a bit driech what about wetsuiting the kids up and jumping in some (not absolutely raging) pools/waterfalls? There's loads around lochaber. Grey mares tail is a good start. And it has a via ferrata.I'd offer to join you at the brandy but I'm down south next week.
