Re: deer flies - keds

Though annoying as they are so hard to flick off, they've never bitten me as far as I know. Hope yours get better soon.

Re: Stalking In Glen Lyon

The relevant access officer is Dave Stubbs, email him on dstubbs@pkc.gov.uk or phone 01738 475347

Might be worth copying in Davie Black at Mountaineering Scotland as he is looking into the car park closure too access@mountaineering.scot

Copied from the thread: I think it is because they are on your own website, which is not secure (https). Chrome has changed its settings so that non-secure content isn't shown by default as part of a secure webpage - because it can create security issues for viewers; I suspect this will eventually h...

Re: Stalking In Glen Lyon

This seems to confirm the signs, that responsible parking in spots mentioned should be OK:

Re: Stalking In Glen Lyon

That is what I had thought previously.

I was going by the signs actually on site yesterday. These seem to indicate that the clearway starts at the telephone exchange and ends before the layby.

Re: Stalking In Glen Lyon

To be clear, we don't think Chesthill's approach to stalking restrictions, or access generally, complies with the Scottish Outdoor Access Code, but having just been to check the situation around the parking, thought I should post a bit of info here (will also update the route guide). The clearway do...

Re: Railway Crossing at Dalwhinnie

Just for info here, OS map from 1882. The level crossing is on the line of the old Thieves' Road (marked in blue). The track through the underpass - to the south - didn't even have any connection with that route before the Loch Ericht dam was built, so it could not have been the original line of the...

Re: For the record -

Personal attacks are being posted here. Note that we do not allow personal attacks and insults on the forum, if repeated they will result in a ban, whoever makes them.

For the record, I eat my apple cores, which probably makes me a barbarian.

Re: Railway Crossing at Dalwhinnie

I'm aware of that pair of Corbetts - have been hoping the potential problem there stays under the radar! I understand that British Transport Police had said previously (with regards to the spate of similar cases a few years ago) that they didn't regard the public crossing railway lines at official p...

Re: Railway Crossing at Dalwhinnie

Update: Heard back from CNPA. If there was a core path across the line, the law is clear that access rights would apply. However, in this case the railway line is the local authority boundary (for access, as it's the Park boundary), and apparently the CNPA core path ends on the E side of the line an...

Re: Railway Crossing at Dalwhinnie

Just to let you know we're aware of this. This crossing is a Core Path (CNPA on one side, Highland Council on the other) - indeed the only circular core path the community has, and most likely a Right of Way as one of the most historic routes across Scotland. It's been raised with both access author...
