Re: Custom made OS Maps

I’ve had two of those OS 1:50000 bespoke maps made, the first i had centred at Grid Reference NN 450300 near Crainlarich, it does away with the four maps that meet awkwardly around Ben More.

Re: The Most Remote Hills In Scotland ?

Anyone care to add, I'd be happy to see more ideas :) If an approach by water along Loch Mullardoch is excluded i’d vote Mullach na Dheiragain as one of the remotest hills. A round of MnD, its neighbour Sgurr nan Ceathreamhnan along with all their tops would be up there in my top ten best walks. A ...

Re: Photo Editing

I mangle my photos in Gimp which is free. Its got its quirks but on the whole i find it easy to use. I started with Gimp intending to upgrade when i reached its limitations, but over a couple of years of use i’ve come to realise what a powerful and versatile tool it is.
