Re: Downloading Walk Description to Android

Hi miket Yes - the "download" link on WH is just for the GPX. But here are a couple of options I've used before with Chrome on Android... Option 1 - save an offline copy. From the walk description web page, tap the three dots (top right) to access Chrome's menu, then click the download ico...

Re: OS Locate

I should have said, it was on airplane mode, and I was still! So much for my troubleshooting skills :-D As others have said it's beginning to sound like some sort of software problem, or the app just doesn't like your model of phone. It might be worth trying a different app to see if that works for...

Re: OS Locate

Hi Jeanette The most likely explanation is that your phone was trying (and failing) to use the mobile signal to get a location, rather than using GPS. The easy fix for this (somewhat counterintuitively) is to turn on airplane mode. That will force your phone to use GPS to find its location. Airplane...

Re: So how busy was it?

Saturday 17th April. We headed up to the Glencoe Ski centre to climb Meall a'Bhuiridh and Creise, and get our only snowboard run of the year. We'd wanted an early start to avoid traffic and parking chaos, but somehow didn't manage to leave Glasgow until just before 8am. Road was pretty quiet, but al...

Re: Clyde Coastal Path

Hi banni - I've done this leg of the Clyde Coastal Path a few times - usually cycling (it's a nice loop with the Erskine Bridge at one end, and either the Renfrew ferry or Millenium Bridge at the other). There is an official website for the Clyde Coastal Path, but sadly the route pages seem to have ...

Weavers trail - Whitelees - killer tussocks

For reasons that are still not clear to me, I've been sort-of in training for a trail run. As a result, I'd been looking around for long-ish trails that could be linked up by public transport. And then I came across a routecard for The Weaver's Trail on East Renfrewshire council's webpage - https://...

Found: camera case near Coulags / Maol Chean-dearg

We found a camera case near Coulags (somewhere near the track from Coulags up to the Coire Fionnaraich bothy) - the usual route up Maol Chean-dearg. Found on 13 May 2019. No camera in it, but it did contain a memory stick and some other camera bits. It has been handed it in to Dingwall Police station.

Re: Midges 2017

Just back from a week up near Achnasheen. Didn't see many about, and it's definitely not at full-midge-horror levels yet, but the few that did find me were really bitey - eg popped out to put a bike in the car one still evening and got bitten five times in as many minutes. (They do love me though - ...

Re: Supplies upon landing at GLA (advice!)

Hi - And welcome to Scotland! There's nothing like that near the airport that I know of. The nearest town to the airport that's likely to have an outdoor gear shop is Paisley. However - if you're planning to get to Jedburgh by public transport you first need to get to Edinburgh. And to get to Edinbu...

For info - the slot seems to be a vent for a heatsink (http://www.crank101.com/petzl1/). I guess if it gets hot enough perhaps Caberfeidh's right and you could use it to make a brew!

Re: Garmin 600 handheld: technical help needed please

Re. the pink line: another possibility (and to add to the confusion) - it does sound to me like it is trying to route you somewhere - the magenta line being the 'line of sight' route to that point. At least, on my eTtrex 30, that's how it looks. I remember being baffled by exactly this behaviour on ...

Re: Glen Affric car parking

We were up that way for a long weekend in May. Our late-ish arrival meant we were short of time to hunt for an alternative spot, so we (somewhat grudgingly) purchased 3 all-day tickets at £2 per day, and laid them all out on the dash (there was no multi-day option). Also - the machine claimed to tak...

Re: Carn Dearg - a Culra quickie

You need to work on the nutrition, lashings of custard? :lol:

There really should have been 5 of us - then the custard and ginger beer would have made perfect sense!
