Re: Trip to Cairngorms in February

If you haven't got anyone more experienced to help you, then getting yourself on a winter skills course would be a shrewd move. Mountaineering Scotland run courses and offer plenty advice: Advice: https://www.mountaineering.scot/safety-and-skills/thinkwinter/winter-skills Courses: https://www.mounta...

Re: Wild Camping Remote spots

Corrour Station immediately springs to mind, you've got loads of options once you get off that train. 8)

Re: Snow on Ben Cruachan?

The SAIS website for Glencoe will give you a good idea of what to expect. Looks like any remaining snow will be patchy :(

Re: Reliable winter tent for under £150, is it possible?

I've got the Floating Cloud 2, which mimics a lot of the Hubba Hubba features, full mesh inner though, so it would be chilly in winter.

Slightly over your budget but what about the Robens Starlight? 🤔

Re: Altbergs but which ones

I had a pair of Tetheras, cracking boots but yes quite a stiff sole and I prefer something more flexible these days, so I'd lean towards the Fremington myself.

I'd try both on in the shop if you've got that option.

Re: 2nd round if Munros

There's no rules, I'm of the opinion if you've done a Munro twice then the second ascent goes towards your 2nd round. 8) I believe the two kinds of people are called golfers - the ones who have to do a full round from beginning to end as one entity - and... bankers, I think? Because they can keep hi...

Re: Some snow on the Fisherfield hills.

Braw, I love Fisherfield, but with some snow it must have felt like another world?

Re: Favourite walk of 2021? Why?

Has to be the Cape Wrath Trail, as I have never done anything like that before. 8)

Re: Getting Fit

Not very much to be honest, local short walks and I cycle to work (13 miles a day) but that's down to twice a week due to the Covid situation.

Re: Ireland west coast mountains season?

I'd say it's similar to the Highlands and equally as unpredictable, April through to June probably. The Reeks are fantastic by the way. 8)

Re: When can you claim the Munro

There are no rules, nevertheless I've edited your list to what I think is okay. 8) Helicopter - No Trail bike or off road vehicle - No Funicular (Aonach Mor, Cairn Gorm) - Yes E bike - Yes Pedal bike - Yes Drive to highest road (Glen Shee, Coire Cas) - Yes Ascend from neighbouring Munro - Yes Start ...

Re: Ideas for Viewranger replacement.

With Back Country Navigator they're piggy backing the map data from Bing, hence why it's so cheap.

Re: Ideas for Viewranger replacement.

Locus is edging it for me, feels more of a polished app. Ironically back in the day I had Locus before I ever had Viewranger. Shame about VR, its a cracking app. Wonder how many customers they lost? OS app just didn't do it for me, bit clunky and I don't like the way you download the sections you ne...
