Re: Locked gate. Dunecht Estate & Barmekin Hill

Yes, Aberdeenshire Council are the access authority. There are circumstances where gates can sometimes be locked, but it's worth reporting to find out; it's good practice to allow some other means of access for people who aren't agile enough to climb over. Can you let me know what gate you were refe...

Re: GPS Routepoints on WH

Hi there, sorry to hear that. The Cairn Toul - Braeriach traverse on WH heads through the Chalamain Gap, then the Lairig Ghru first, over Cairn Toul to Braeriach, then back through the CG gap. All the route points are in the file that is on the site. I've had a look and the summit of Braeriach is th...

Re: Arrochar Alps ViewRanger maps

Hmmm, sorry. I've just tried it with that route on my own phone and it worked.

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

Re: Arrochar Alps ViewRanger maps

No sure what you mean Jamie. Our route pages for all those hills include a link to download the route as a native route within Viewranger - which gets you the description available offline on your phone, as well as the route line and will let you choose what mapping tiles you want to go with it (if ...

Re: Full screen version of the walks map

Hi, I'm afraid the reason we don't have a full screen version of the all-walks map is that it is very expensive server-wise to display it to lots of people; if it was a stand-alone page and attracted links we might end up having to delete it completely to keep things running. Sorry if disappointing,...

Re: Waypoints

If you look in the gpx files you download from Walkhighlands, there are no waypoints. Either the software you are using or your GPS device must be putting them there.

Our route files contain only routes (consisting of route points), no waypoints or trackpoints.

Re: Furths

Thanks for the suggestion. All the UK Furths are already included in our other hill lists. This makes it less valuable to list them again on another list, but no doubt some would still like a personal bagging map of them. However we have no mapping we can access for Ireland so it isn't going to be e...

Re: Parking near Cairngorm Mountain Resort

The parking at the funicular base station does not have a compulsory charge - only voluntary donations.

Even when there was a compulsory charge last summer, there weren't actually any parking machines or tickets.

Re: Loch Quoich land slip

No worries, lots of people miss it when there's a bold temporary note in the summary about diversions / closures etc. We probably need to look at changing the design for putting on temporary notes that don't get missed.

Re: Loch Quoich land slip

Hi, the walk description has been updated - it's in bold in the summary section https://www.walkhighlands.co.uk/fortwilliam/sgurramhaoraich.shtml Our current understanding is that hopefully the road may open before Easter. I hope so as it is possible people arriving at Kinlochhuorn on the Cape Wrath...

Re: My munro map not dispalying

Have you recently installed some sort of privacy plugin or similar? In order to help discourage other sites from using our map tiles and leaving us with the bills for it, your browser has to be able to tell our map server that you are on the Walkhighlands website before it will serve you a map tile....

Re: Distance/timing of walks

It's always for the whole walk as it is described, so if it says 'return the same way' that is included.

For a few routes it doesn't say that - e.g. stages of long distance routes, and some where it says 'get a bus back to the start' or similar.

Re: Suggested improvements to the instructions.

Many thanks, and apologies for our error in transposing the grid reference - embarrassed by this as we only recently re-walked this route and updated it. I've now corrected this, and mentioned explicitly the change in path direction as you suggest.
