Re: Outdoor enthusiasts and ageing

About 15 years ago walking alone aged about 60 near Loch Clair met a party of German walkers heading for the Coulin Pass. Pleasantries exchanged, I was asked if alone - yes - is it safe for you to be alone?- why not? I suppose you have a cell phone? No, why have one, there is no coverege in the moun...

Re: New covid restrictions

@al78 "Are you prepared to pay a significant sum of money for the forgiveness?"

@Moriarty:

as I was taught many moons ago It is easier to get forgiveness afterwards than to get permission beforehand..............

Re: Beinn a' Chuallaich B847 – No Parking

Hmmm, not holding my breath for sign removal when extraction is over. IMO signs should then be removed; extraction happens once every 30 - 50 years and then we wait while new trees grow to maturity - they don't need the signs during the growing years....... And the prohibion of parking along the Tri...

Re: Beinn a' Chuallaich B847 – No Parking

Perhaps the no parking signs are a relic from all the heavy traffic when work was done on the super pylon project?

Re: Walking boots for wide-ish feet.

Another vote for Altberg for the variety of widths, plus half-sizes and 5 widths. Also vote for Whalley Warm and Dry, excellent fitters and good choice of widths etc in stock. Any of the Premier Retailers will be Altberg-trained in fitting their boots - other stockists maybe not. You can buy from fa...
