Re: Where's the pic England v5

I'm gambling on being able to figure out where my pictures have got to now, but are you on Simonside looking at the Cheviots?

Re: Stalking time for the Moonboys

Mheadhain, maybe, although I'm not sure what it would be in the middle *of*...

ETA: The Arrochar Ben Vane is Beinn Mheadhain, according to SMO's mutant dictionary, but it's more obvious that it's in the middle of that cluster of hills. Pronounced 'vay-en', for anyone who's puzzled!

Re: 214 the perfect Place to end

Congratulations! It sounds like you've gone through a lot to get there :)

Looks like it was a good day, too - amazing sky.

Re: Where's the pic England v5

I meant to go through it one day, but found it full of cows, and escaped up the slopes of Great Cockup instead.

I shouldn't have replied, because I have no idea where to find an English picture - workmen have been, and everything is where it shouldn't be. Can anyone take pity on me?

Re: Where's the pic England v5

Is it Trusmadoor, haunted by cows?

Re: John Muir Way Recommendations

Sadly no pub in Cockburnspath, but you'd find one in Dunbar... Does it have to be East Lothian? St Abbs to Cove/Cockburnspath is a good coast walk, although a bit short of pubs - there might be one at Pease Bay. It's only marked on very new maps, but there's a Berwickshire Coast Path leaflet you can...

Re: John Muir Way Recommendations

I also enjoyed the Cockburnspath to Dunbar stretch which the JMW has now kicked out - I think it has the best views - but either of the next two stretches would give you more of a mix of coast and country, if that's what you want.

Re: Which OS maps do I need?

The map view on the OS website still seems to be there, you just have to click on the area to get the map boundaries to show up?

Re: A Slow but Wild Kintyre Way Experience

The shop in the petrol station at Clachan is still open as far as I know - it's just outside the village, up the main road to the north. They're talking about trying to open the Skipness shop again - it was still going a few years back, summer 2018 if not 2019.

Re: Night time garden visitor

There are quite often foxes in next door's garden, especially when there are youngsters about.

Re: Borders camp sites for St Cuthberts Way

Google suggests Lilliardsedge, on the way to Jedburgh (68 bus route)
https://lilliardsedgepark.co.uk/touring-camping/camping/

I know nothing more about it than that, though!

(That Monday is a school holiday in Edinburgh at least, that might be making things busier.)

Re: Huge queues on Snowdon

Not so easy to do that on Snowdon, the summit is at the top of a set of stairs!

I had to wait a bit even on a Friday in October. On the other hand I had the summit of Helvellyn to myself at about 8pm on a June evening - that was a nice bit of lateral thinking.

Semi-invisible photos

There's something odd going on at https://www.walkhighlands.co.uk/Forum/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=107587 with photos showing up to some people/browsers and not others. Any ideas?

Re: Ben Donich and The Brack - steep but good views

I can see them in Firefox, but not when I tried in Chrome. Maybe this is something Paul would (not) like to know :D

Re: Where's the pic England v5

I'd have said Buckbarrow too!

I'll take a wild guess at Longsleddale.
