Re: Kilometres

Map squares are measured in kilometres. Makes calculating distance on your OS map straightforward.

Re: Paramo questions please.

I have the men’s velez jacket. In warm conditions I often found myself taking off layers which were then rather bulky to fit in my rucksack. A friend of mine has a Paramo jacket and swore by it, so I eventually had a look at one for myself. Whilst the jacket was expensive I have found it to be super...

Re: What3words

I can’t see why anyone would opt for this App over the OS Locate app. OS Locate gives you an accurate six figure grid reference without an internet signal. With this information you can text your grid reference location to 999 (again, no internet or phone signal required to text 999). https://www.ng...

Re: Will poles help my knees?

I previously had a similar problem. I now use Pacer Poles and haven’t had a problem since. Yes, they come at a price but are, in my experience, worth it.

OS Maps

I am looking for advice from people who use hard copy OS Maps whilst hillwalking.

Do you, personally, buy each individual OS Map as required or do you print out the necessary “tiles”.

For those of you who buy the hard copy maps, is there an economical method?!

Re: Six days, Six hours and two minutes.....

Seems rather pointless to me. I enjoy hillwalking and the view is a large part of why I enjoy it as much. To race around them, just for the sake of a record, absolutely baffles me. Impressive feat of fitness/stamina? Yes. One of the worst things about social media is 1. the policing of other people...

Re: Six days, Six hours and two minutes.....

Yup, I still think it’s an absolute load of nonsense.

Life’s fast enough. Slow down and enjoy yourself. Racing around the Fells just to say you’ve done them is ridiculous.

Good on him for being fit enough and for raising money for charity.

Re: Steall Falls

I walked the Ring of Steall on Wednesday and from the lower car park it took me about half an hour to walk to it. I was walking at a decent pace so for a leisurely stroll maybe plan on an hour up then an hour down.

Re: Pacer Poles

Bought a set of PacerPoles and used them for the first time this week to do six Munro’s over two days. I have previously experienced left knee pain on each walk, but this week...zero knee pain. The only thing i’ve done differently is changed from regular poles to these. Might just be coincidence, of...

I think you might have to raise a ticket with Viewranger. support@viewranger.com ?


Done. Cheers.

Re: Arrochar Alps ViewRanger maps

Go to the Bein Narnairn and Bein Ime page on WalkHighlands. Scroll down and select “Get route in ViewRanger - the Walkhighlands app for offline use” It’ll open the ViewRanger app, but then the message “route not found” is displayed on screen. I have credit so that’s not the issue. I’ve just download...

Arrochar Alps ViewRanger maps

Anyone know where I can download route maps for Ben Ime, Ben Narnairn and The Cobbler, Ben Vane and Ben Vorlich?

The routes on here to download to ViewRanger says they can’t be downloaded.
