20th September 2019, 33 photos

EOSM club flyout to Troutbeck in the Lake District, blessed by beautiful smooth flying conditions, continuous sunshine and occasional tailwinds. Why can't they all be like that?

Amazing holiday to the western USA showing Kim and James around all my favourite American destinations.

Glencoe Flight

28th June 2019, 6 photos

Gift voucher flight with old RBS chum who wanted to see some Munros. We must have seen 100, at least!

Glen Rosa

14th June 2019, 7 photos

Followed the weather to Arran, camped at Glen Rosa and then had a birthday walk up Goatfell from Glen Rosa. It's an excellent approach to the hill, even with a mild hangover!

Damp Gigha

19th May 2019, 15 photos

The weather may have been damp but it couldn't dampen our spirits as an intrepid few made it to Gigha and fewer still stuck it out for the weekend and were rewarded with time to explore the island on foot rather than by air. Good company and always good fun - what microlighting is all about.

Glen Etive Again

Torridon Mini Break

13th April 2019, 20 photos

Crammed as much as possible into a day and a half of brilliant spring weather Torridon. Tandemed to Diabeag and then a longer circuit via Kinlochewe, Achnasheen and Lochcarron. Then bagged the southern/eastern Munro of Beinn Eighe on the last morning before the long drive home.

La Thuile

12th February 2019, 18 photos

Four more mid-term skiing days with James, in La Thuile this time, so that he could show me around the place he had his school trip last year. Excellent skiing on uncrowded pistes with no queues, even during our school holidays - well worth giving it a go.


1st January 2019, 12 photos

My 200th Munro (and 201st) after a Hogmanay wild camp near Braemar to see in the New Year. These 200 have taken 35 years or so - a rate at which the remaining 82 will take a very long time.

Mallorca Cycling

18th October 2018, 28 photos

Tandeming holiday to Mallorca - the ultimate road cycling destination - 200-odd miles, all of it uphill, or it least it felt like that!

Wee Buachaille

5th October 2018, 11 photos

A quick jaunt up the Wee Buachaille involving sunshine, wind, snow and rain.


11th July 2018, 66 photos

Summer holiday by car to the little Medieval village of Barjac near the Ardeche Gorge, returning via Paris. Lovely hot weather in the south of France with lots of swimming in rivers to keep us cool. A holiday enjoyed with a backdrop of the World Cup in Russia and the growing excitement in France as they eased their way to the final during our stay.

Bagby Flyout 2018

20th May 2018, 13 photos

Terrific club flyout to hot and sunny Bagby airfield in Yorkshire allowing a few more recently qualified pilots to get some experience of what it's all about - with great flying and airmanship displayed by all of them throughout.
