A Dales High Way

Since doing the Dales Way in October last year I've wanted to come back to this area and walk A Dales High Way. The two long distance walks follow roughly similar routes through the Dales but this walk is decidedly "lumpier" and a much tougher test. Looking at the route, it seemed to fit n...

Re: Downloading GPX routes

I'm just back from walking A Dales High Way and the last three days at different times I was on clag bound hills that were new to me. I had paper maps, guide book notes and compass with me but the GPX gives an added level of confidence in what you are doing. I also carry a spare battery for the Garm...

Re: Downloading GPX routes

Hi Kenny As my mobile was bought 15 years ago for under a tenner in Tesco this isn't an option for me. I download the GPX data to the Garmin software (Base Camp) then send it to my Garmin Montana 600. The GPX then appears under "Route Planner" and it's just a case of clicking on the "...

Calvine to Beyond Bruar Lodge

Forecast for today was good with no threat of rain. I chose this route as I wanted to do 20+ miles ahead of starting a long distance walk on Sunday. Starting at 7:45am the early morning light was beautiful giving the grass a golden tint. There was a northerly wind blowing so it was all into the wind...

An Unexpected Sub 2000

Set off on one of many routes I do from Cally Car Park at Dunkeld - this one should have been just shy of 22 miles. The morning was surprisingly cool and just 4 degrees at the start, combined with a strong wind coming out of the north it felt decidely like winter. I got as far as the bridge at the f...

Re: Flying solo for a change

That was a surprise FF - I've never been attacked by keds anywhere other than the hills much further west.

I think you posted this report as you had a photo of a car park with no campervans in it :wink:

Re: A Slow but Wild Kintyre Way Experience

Thanks for posting this, it's a route i've looked at but still to do so the info will come in handy nearer the time. There's nothing worse than a shop you expect to be open being closed. This happened to me a couple of weeks ago (Formartine & Buchan Way) near the end of a long day. Thoughts of a...

Another Chance to do Some Donnies

Another trip to Lanark for plants - another opportunity to take in some hills :D Having just come off the back of a failed footwear experiment on a long distance trail I can't get my right foot in to a trainer but I put the boots on and managed to walk round the outside of the house twice so that's ...

The Formartine & Buchan Way

The Formartine & Buchan Way was never going to be on my bucket list of long distance walks but with the Greens getting a seat at the table (or to be factual, two seats) the pressure was on to complete this walk before the path is returned to a working railway again :wink: I probably had about tw...

Re: 'm on a wee hill...where exactly?...Monawee Hill etc

Hi litljortindan I know the Loch Lee area fairly well but have never done this hill before. I've seen your gpx at the end but can you just confirm exactly where you left the main track and was there any indication of it (I'm assuming just as you reach the loch side you headed on to the open hill)??...

Cheers RH - the bike remains in the garage even on an obvious day like this one ( a purist - even if it kills me!!).
