Heading North for Ben Hee 873 metres – “The Fairy Hill“

Ben Hee – The Corbett Almanac

I am hopefully heading North its a 2 and a half hour drive up to Merknd Lodge, my plan Ben Hee 873 metres “The fairy hill”. which appears to be a fairly rounded hill from the A838 road – has some wild hidden corries (I hope to get a view of them on this trip) . Especially it’s steeper slopes on its eastern and northern sides. It gives a reasonably straightforward hill walk – revealing spectacular views.” I am lucky to have climbed this hill twice before usually with other hills.

Ben Hee.


Its worth have a look at the Stalking that may be going on in the area if your planning hill days.

Todays tip – Checked out torch and batteries and weather forecast.

    Hi It’s going to be the 70th anniversary of my uncle Ralph losing his life in TX264, do you know if there is anything planned for the remembrance of the Crew / milestone in RAFMountain rescue. I would love to visit the site on behalf of our family as know one has ever done this. I know that my mum who is now 84 years old would be very grateful that some one has been to lay flowers for “Lofty”. My health is not the best but I would train for the hike.

    I thank you in advance for any information you can offer.

    Regards Ron Aspinall

    • I hope to make a visit next year its a long way in and better going with non mountaineers when the snow goes May the best time. I have written a lot about the walk it will take 2 -3 hours walk in maybe 2 hours on site the 2 hours out a long day.

      let me know your thoughts?
