Re: So how busy was it?

Ben Klibreck on Friday was really quiet. One guy passed me at the start. Apart from meeting him again when he was coming back down, I met a guy and his son nearly at the top and that was that.

Re: Walking with a puppy.

Over the years I have had a couple of companions who have had long and happy lives on the hills with me. I have an older boy now retired from the big days but still managing some decent walks and a now middle aged (16) and super fit 7 year old who is raring to go. My dogs are normally from rescue ce...

Re: Smartwatch

The Fitbit Versa and Sense, both waterproof have a facility to increase text and info on the watch so you can read it as a usual watch. You use your phone linked with it to use ViewRanger. The sense as I was saying before has an independent GPS. I wear glasses and its the bane of my life. I can at l...

Re: Smartwatch

I have done many a munro and multi day walk including the CWT with my Fitbit versa. The battery lasts about 5 days and links with my phone which has viewranger.

Re: Bull in a Field

I have had a few ‘wobbly’ experiences when coming across cattle on my travels. I too, have dogs and one now who couldn’t outrun cattle as he is an elderly boy, is deaf, partially blind and wouldn’t know what was coming. I remember before COVID, I had gone into Glen Nevis where many people walk to th...

Re: Ideal pack size and weight for weekend backpack?

I have a 35 litre pack and it holds an overnight or two for three seasons. BUT,, My 60 litre Granite gear is actually lighter than the 35 litre pack so it makes sense to use that instead, I try not to overpack it and in winter, it allows for additional winter gear. It rolls down well anyway and very...

Re: Walking dog harness

I have the ruffwear webmaster for mine and had it many years now. Have a wee look at their website as they also give good instructions for how to have them fit properly. Its been a godsend to help me with my older dog who needs a hand now and again and the handle is brill for that. It fully supports...

Re: Where to buy gas in Glasgow or Milngavie?

I think Tiso are open now? I was in the one in Aviemore a couple of days ago? The one in Couper Street would not be too far out of your way and if you were there sharp at 10 when it opens then you should still have plenty time to make a start on your walk? Not too far from the bus station either. Ob...

Re: Last Munro for compleaters

Have never really looked beyond the next Munro and really didn’t ever consider that I would finish them all. Perhaps that isn’t an unusual way to think ? But if I do get to that point and I am fit and able do complete then perhaps unusually for me ,, I haven’t yet done Ben Nevis? This wouldn’t be de...

Re: Salomon X Ultra 3 Mid GTX Womens Hiking Boots

With the exception of winter, my Ultras are brill. I have done many a Munro, long distance walk including CWT in mine (and had relatively dry feet, but it was good weather) and really comfy. I am on to another pair as my first did what Salomon seem to do, and began to leak. They were well out of war...
