Re: The Devil's Point via Càrn a'Mhaim

I mean if you went up and back down the south side of Càrn a'Mhaim via the steps there and carried on to the devils point then I would assume so. How far along Càrn a'Mhaim will you want to go. It is a nice walk to just south of Ben Macdui but not sure if you could go down the west side following on...

Re: Glen Doll update May 2022

https://www.outdooraccess-scotland.scot/sites/default/files/2018-05/Publication%202005%20-%20Scottish%20Outdoor%20Access%20Code.pdf Is this not the outdoor access code? Does section 3 not exist especially section 3.10 and 3.11? Yes, they have a responsibility to provide access but trees blowing down...

Re: Glen Doll update May 2022

Again, not their choice. Saying you are aware of rules and then breaking them does not change anything. If land management operations are taking place then they can put up appropriate signage. Indeed, all they had to do was say, that due to the weather, trees were down and normal routes may be block...

Shame about the body shaming,


I think it would be quite easy to catch a tick early on in that situation, no where for them to hide.

Sun protection would be my concern.

Re: Glen Doll update May 2022

Saying they know about access and then describing a situation that goes completely against the access code is a bit contradictory no?

It is not their choice in what they do.

Re: Glen Doll update May 2022

Does anyone who works for these places actually read the rules on access. Unless someone is actively carrying out work they are not closed. Same with every other route route where storm damage has occurred. Not for others to decide on what is dangerous for individuals where the danger is naturally ...

Great walk, great views. Weather was great and the surrounding landscape is one of the best I have seen.

Re: Walking up to Lochnagar

I eventually got there on my third try due to weather etc back in march 2017. Got there on a sunny day with some snow making the corrie fantastic. I will probably go back on day, get some better pictures. I went up the stone "steps" from the east and descended to lock muick via the souther...

Re: Last Chance for a First Munro

"The second third was brutal..." Had a chuckle reading that. This is always the issue with predefined paths, sometimes it would be easier to meander up a hill but no, some masochist decided straight up is best. Also hate steps as they define the height of the step you have to take. Much pr...

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

Mount Keen via Glen Tanar as mentioned in the 10 easier munros is a good choice. Glen Tanar is a nice place that can be quite busy near the car park but is a nice walk. Personally I would ignore the word Munro altogether as it might rule out some nice walks. Merrick down in the Galloway region is a ...

Re: Walking Etiquette

I am not sure there is such a thing as walking etiquette. However, minimising erosion and damage to flora and fauna is a worthy goal. I like paths and will always try and follow them even if often they appear just to be deer paths. But sometimes, paths themselves can be damaging and cause erosion an...

Re: Should I have intervened?

Ben Macdui is not exactly a dramatic summit being a plateau if my mind serves me right. Sure it has the stone with the various points of interest marked but it is quite rocky and not that good a summit. So perhaps it was more of "is this it?" I have one memory of Ben Macdui, a cloud rollin...
