Re: Sea Eagle (?) on east side of Raasay.

Our understanding is that these posts are not a problem if the mention isn't about a nest site.

Re: electric cars

How do you find the electric car in winter, does it take longer to charge, battery power when using the heater etc, do you preheat the car when connected to the charger at home , be interesting to know your thoughts. Does anyone have experience of how different the range on electric cars is in wint...

Re: electric cars

We drive an electric car - a wee Renault Zoe. Does far, far better in the Highlands than you might expect. The range is at its best when on the narrow twisting roads - for instance, we've done Kinloch Hourn or Strathan (Loch Arkaig) as a comfy day trip out and back from Cromdale, with plenty power l...

Re: Bothies and the CWT

I actually think most of Scotland is looking much better this year than the immediate post-lockdown. To my mind bothies are in a much better state today than say 25 years ago when I was first using them. Saw next to no litter all round the NC500 this year (plenty of farm rubbish) and hills clear. Ve...

Re: A question about The John o' Groats Trail

EE has the best coverage, most especially if you want a data connection.

Re: WH coming and going

If it happens again, can you possibly email me your ip address? You can find it by adding Google “my ip address” - it’s for numbers separated by dots. Email: editor@walkhiglands.co.uk You probably need to make a note as you won’t be able to read this if you can’t access 😊 I can then check that out s...

Re: WH coming and going

That's the only thing I can think of. Wonder if you both use the same IP?

Not that we've changed any DNS in years.

Re: WH coming and going

I'm not aware of any downtime at all. Currently rewriting all the area pages with the highlighty maps to newer code, so there's a chance you would miss one if I was uploading at that moment. But that seems pretty unlikely. Let me know if you find any possible reasons - sounds strange if it happens o...

Re: Rocketing Fuel Costs!

Just a heads up that we've had complaints about this thread: Petrol prices as part of how to reach walks is just about on topic. However parts of this thread have gone off into other political issues that don't have any real link - such as alcohol pricing. If we can keep things on the outdoors / wal...

Re: Boots vs trail running shoes

I prefer trail shoes, unless there's snow. Especially if there's any sort of path. They don't last as long as leather boots though (with few exceptions). I don't believe there is any scientific evidence that 'ankle support' from boots is a real thing (e.g. see https://www.reddit.com/r/AdvancedBackpa...

Re: Lossiemouth to Buckie - entirely or partially inaccessib

Sorry, the page description and photo - which describes and shows the new bridge! - had been updated as I visited the day after opening day to do this, but I hadn't removed the warning box. It's gone now. On the map, our blue route line shows the route going over the new bridge location (even though...

Re: How to scale print map from the site ?

Printing on websites is generally controlled by your browser - so you can just print from your browser - look in your browser menu for a print option. Print screen is also an option for those who prefer to do that. Scale depends on how far you have zoomed in or out, how large your paper is and your ...

Re: Download GPX of entire trail and PDF of all stages?

I'm afraid our GPX files are only available individually for each route stage. We have agreed with Police Mountain Rescue teams that you need to click on the agree to use a map link when downloading each one. Many browsers will let you print to a pdf file, but note that this is only for your persona...

Re: Best mobile network

By far the most extensive network across the Highlands is EE, which has very wide rural 4G these days. This is due to them getting the contract to provide the Emergency Services Network.

Vodafone is OK for phone calls but far, far behind for anything beyond that.
