Re: MRT callout

. I’m an intensive care nurse. I can assure you that this virus is not “entirely survivable” and it can and will infect and kill perfectly fit and healthy people. I have witnessed this with my own eyes. It is a highly contagious virus which we have no immunity to.[/quote] Erm, well, it is. Hence wh...

Re: MRT callout

I don't quite get exactly what risk these folk were presenting? Changed days indeed, when a MRT, backed by the twee society out there, resorts to publicly shaming folk. Having to be rescued brought those three walkers into contact with a team of people rescuing them. That situation presents the ris...

Re: 5 mile "advice"

The advice clearly states that we should participate in such activities ‘locally’. If I were to ask you which shops you consider local, consider that distance as your new playground. I think this thread is about the new regs and advice planned for later this week when you'll be able to drive '5 mil...

Re: 5 mile "advice"

With a risk at being shot down in flames here, can I highlight the following. I watched the Update live on Thursday 21st May where Nicola stated the stages out of lockdown. She was asked if the 5 mile local rule was rigid and she said no it is not. It is advice. She said the 5 mile advice was to st...

Re: Dark Sky area's close to central belt ?

Steve B wrote:I believe there is a dark sky park or similar in Dumfries and Galloway.
A google search should identify where.


You’re correct.

Dark Sky Town = Moffat

Dark Sky Park = New Galloway.

Re: Applauding our fantastic NHS

As a nurse working in critical care within the NHS I’m experiencing the sharp end of the crisis. The outpouring of kindness towards us of late has been lovely and I know it’s very much appreciated. I can’t help finding it abit odd, though that we don’t treat those in the armed forces in the same wa...

Re: A Dream Coming True

There’s always work within the NHS. Possibly not in a science field right now, but lab jobs do come up.

https://www.jobs.nhs.uk/ and search Cumbria.

Good luck.

Re: Should the Countryside be More Inclusive?

In my opinion, this is utter nonsense. Most people will have the option of staying in The Lake District overnight to hillwalk (which costs money) or get up very early to travel (which takes effort and money). Only then to put in the physical graft to walk up the fells. If folk aren’t into this sort ...

Re: Ben Narnain van The Cobbler?

Hi Paul, firstly many thanks for supplying and moderating such a fantasticly useful site. I am certainly glad I happened across it. Also, thank you for your reply, although it has left me somewhat flummoxed. I merely asked if anybody could confirm if there was a path leading from the Cobblers north...

Re: Jeans question

Might it be a better idea to lose weight? I appreciate that’s an easy thing to say. However, not only would you fit into the walking trousers you like but your overall health may benefit. Failing that you could buy the walking trousers that fit your waist and have a seamstress sort out the length/wi...
