Re: Fide Coastal Path and the Scottish Outdoor Access Code

There are plenty of places along the coast where walker and golfer co-exist. We respectfully keep out their way as far as possible, they respectfully should shout "fore" if their ball is about to hit us! (For full disclosure, I am mainly a walker, but do enjoy a round of golf when I get th...

Re: Mam Sodhail bike?

We did those 3 using the path through that coire a few weeks ago. We debated bike options but decided in the end to walk it. I think we enjoyed the walk more than if we'd cycled any. Walking means you can be flexible on your return route. I walked the first 7ish km in trail shoes before changing to ...

Re: Easiest and safest munros in late october with children?

A good combination of adventure and one of the most straight forward munros is to hop on the train to corrour and walk up beinn na Lap. As with others very weather dependant being a remote location.

Re: Isle of Lewis

On lewis one of the less known but lovely beaches is at valtos. It is also a very enjoyable wander around the headland. If you like seafood there is a good takeaway place on the road out there. If you can get down to Harris, the Eagle observatory place is on the road out to hushnish. Hushnish is ano...

Re: Next hill, what to do?

On the met Office you can get forecasts for all the munros. Check the wind as much as the rain etc. Beinn ghlas is a good beginner one and depending on how it's going you can carry on to ben lawers. Depending on conditions it can be quite midgy around there.

Re: New walkers

Our family were similar ages to yours when we started doing hills, but most of our family holidays up until then had been spent doing lower level walks in various parts of Scotland. I think I would get them used to being out walking and carrying their own bags. As well as the walks on here there are...

Re: Mystery butterfly

We had that one on a quiz last night, would not have had a clue before that. But CT beat me to giving the answer here. Just shows all these quizzes not just about winning, but you learn stuff!

Re: Young People in the Hills

I guess d of e varies a lot depending on those leading it. We as a family have very positive experience of it, all 3 of our children going right through to gold over the last 10 years. As parents we are really grateful to the teachers and other adults who give their time that makes it possible.
