Re: Help from a Gaelic speaker please

Yes, but English incorporates them using its own alphabet and spelling conventions - television, not τῆλε-vīsiōn, because English doesn't use Greek letters or Latin length markings. Gaelic uses an 18 letter Roman alphabet with no v, hence 'telebhisean'. And no k - sg- represents the sound represente...

Re: Help from a Gaelic speaker please

English just adopted the Norwegian word, although in that case they kept the spelling and changed the pronunciation ('shee'). I mean, you can moan about Gaelic just transliterating English in words like television, but English is generally just transliterating Greek or Latin, so why not. I don't thi...

Re: Help from a Gaelic speaker please

The faclair beag gives 'sgì' for ski-the-object, and 'sgìtheadh' (genitive* 'sgithidh') for the act of skiing. You can have a look for yourself at https://www.faclair.com/ - there are a couple of variant spellings, but those are the main ones. 'Sgith' is less likely because it's very similar to the ...

Re: Least climbed mainland Marilyn

I'm not sure they do either, but they've claimed it - it's 42 on the list with 376 ascents to the Sgurr of Eigg's 57 and 320. The Sgurr is definitely a more 'islandy' hill...

Re: Least climbed mainland Marilyn

And the most climbed island Sub, to complete the set? :D I think it's Meall na Suireamach at the Quiraing, but I might have missed a name in the list above it.

Re: Where's the picture ? - Scotland (part 3)

I haven't been on either - if you have you're welcome to it, because I've remembered I've been holding up England for weeks through failure to find photo :D

Re: Where's the picture ? - Scotland (part 3)

It looks like more or less the view of Scarba from Luing that I only got in tiny snatches last February - maybe from the high point of the island, or the high point of Seil? (Is that two guesses?!)

Re: Forum timeywimeyness

I can't cope with the forum being an hour off - the sun being an hour off messes with my mind quite enough!

Thanks. You sometimes don't have time until a bit later on - I wasn't trying to get at you!

Re: help need identifying amazing split level twin lochs

Yes, I looked at it and thought 'that looks like Raasay'. Someone has put a pretty similar shot on google maps https://goo.gl/maps/MHY83AevndRZUrqy7

Forum timeywimeyness

For once I'm remembering to do this now, rather than in a week or two's time when I'm sick of it, so for anyone else wondering/trying to remember how: 'Account Settings' in the top left dropdown menu -> Board preferences -> 'Summer Time/DST is in effect' to 'No' Now I just need to switch my brain to...

Re: Fide Coastal Path and the Scottish Outdoor Access Code

It seems to be here https://goo.gl/maps/ZpaRQEKm1phMDFUj7, btw - you can see the path vanish. If so, it's so short a stretch that you might be as quick waiting for the tide to turn as scrambling up onto the farmland - I remember being a bit underwhelmed by it. (The other bit, north of Kingsbarns, I ...

Re: Fide Coastal Path and the Scottish Outdoor Access Code

As far as I can remember, the path runs right along the edge of the golf course - it's somewhere beyond that that the only flat ground is below high water. No doubt there is some kind of way around further back, but then you're no longer on the route of the trail - which is all they're saying that i...
