Those in tier 3 or 4 areas are permitted to travel upto a maximum of 5 miles outside of their local authority to begin their outdoor exercise. Indeed, but ‘professional’ ha ha football teams are traversing Scotland, including lower py...

Re: Reading advice

This is pretty good as a start https://cuhwc.org.uk/page/meanings-gaelic-words-commonly-seen-hill-names Unusually, for these sort of things it also includes the genitive case of nouns and examples of genitive affected adjectives. You don't know need to know the why but it's handy to know that e.g. d...

Re: New Coronavrus Tiers and Hillwalking/Campervanning

We are essentially back in 5 mile territory for those in Tier 3/4.

Re: New covid restrictions

Whilst that is technically true, if you go too far down that route, you end up damaging the very environment that is the reason for people (less physically abl...
