Re: So how busy was it?

Was very surprised how quiet it was today in the Crianlarich area, mainly talking about the car parking. Went up Beinn Challum and never met another soul until I was very close to the train line on the way down. Car parks on the way back to Stirling weren't full all the way back (around 11AM) includ...

Re: GPS watches

Just an update, I got a Garmin Instict and I absolutely love it. Not the solar one however the battery life is excellent, I've been doing a fair bit of jogging and trail runs with it and it's so much of an upgrade from my older Garmin's it's unreal. Highly recommend anyone looking for a decently pri...

Re: GPS watches

Brilliant to hear, thanks for your feedback! I'm a fan of Garmin generally, my wife has used different brands and I've not been keen. Made my mind up for me, cheers! I had a similar query a few months back. Ended up getting a Garmin Instinct and love it. They're £220 on Amazon just now but I paid ab...

GPS watches

Hi guys! Looking to purchase a new watch for the coming years walking. I normally use one of my trusty Garmin 25's for recording walks and tracking my running, but I'm looking for a watch that has an altimeter function when I'm active. A Fenix is out of my price range, so I've did a bit of research ...

Re: Beinn a' Chuallaich B847 – No Parking

All dozen cars I passed in Invervar on Saturday had a ticket. That will please North Chesthill Hi there. I'm intending, weather depending, to park in Invervar on Monday to walk the Glen Lyon Munros, were all the cars ticketed parked illegally/badly do you know? I don't know the parking situation up...

Re: Something to be ashamed of?

Try getting your hands on Cairngorm John. The stories John Allen tells about his years in Mountain rescue are fantastic and mind boggling though tragic to read. Funny I just started that yesterday! A friend has been saying he'd lend me it for ages and I got fed up and bought it the other day. It's ...

Hi!

Hi guys, had to sign up as a user purely based on the sheer amount of time I've spent on the website recently. What a great resource! I went up Ben Lomond last year with friends, which was great, and having more time on my hands this summer with football being indefinitely postponed I'm hoping to ge...
