With the skies clearing and the temperature dropping I popped down to Glentrool for a bit of post Christmas relaxation.
A few things noted were ... Yes it is a LOT warmer sleeping and sitting at the same level as the frontier stove. It is better to put your sleeping socks on before you get in your sleeping bag. Not when you wake up with cold feet .DOH. Anyway. heres the pics....

Did you find it a problem with the frontier stove chimney going through the centre? I was worried about it taking too much room in the middle of the tent.

Your set up looks cosy :D how close was the stove actually to your bed ?

Good on you getting out, and thanks for sharing.
The temperature here dropped to -5C, and it had been so wet before the frost hit that we're solid ice :sigh:

cheers,

Excellent, dude after my own heart ! Tent set up looks great with the stove.

Planning on a wee trip after the bells,maybe Saturday leaving.

Not sure where but thinking closest would be Glencoe/Rannoch ( nice and exposed , lol ) , or if roads are good maybe try for Old Man of Storr !

Unfortunately , I won't have a tent stove, :( , so clothing and sleep system is paramount!

Great-looking set-up there, and fine weather for using it; we've had similar here post Christmas and it's lovely to be out in it, eh?.

Years ago I borrowed a geodesical dome tent from Geoff Forest, from near Loch Doon, and he lent me the stove that he'd built to go with it….when that thing was going there was no one cold near by :)
