Re: 2020

My husband offered to give me a new 'anorak' for Christmas - as more lockdowns loom, I've taken to 'collecting' trig points in the local area!!!
Thank you to all at Walkhighlands for keeping spirits up during a really difficult year and very best wishes for 2021 xx

Re: Grange Fell Maze

Quite agree about the maze around the summit. I had reached the latter by using GPS and then deliberately put it away when I left the trig and avoided the way I had arrived there. Just for the challenge ......... good to know my sense of direction still works!! :D

Fife Pilgrim Way

Just wondering why there is no link or description of Fife Pilgrim Way on this website? I checked Lowland Walks in Fife and long distance without success. I realise there are no 'highlands' on this route (nor are there on any of the Lowland routes) and some of the way goes through urban areas (as ma...

Re: Change of Profile

Dear Paul
You've made my day!!! I just checked my profile and I too am a Munro compleatist. I'm not going to change it (the stats alongside tell the real story). Anyway, from me and my aged right knee - thank you

Re: Painted rocks (posted by a grumpy old woman?)

What interesting responses! I quite understand these painted rocks are 'for fun' - in the same way that a message in a bottle was 'fun' many years ago. Hopefully these are now totally unacceptable - there is enough glass and plastic in the oceans without adding more. Maybe I'm lucky that going into ...

Thank you, rodderss :wink: :wink:

Painted rocks (posted by a grumpy old woman?)

Just wondering what others think about painted rocks in the hills? On reaching the summit trig point on one of our local hills recently we were surprised to find a 'painted rock'. Love.jpg The reverse of the rock gave Facebook details with an invitation to post a response and photo.. At the time, I ...

The 'Newtons' - best traverse of the Ochils

Getting out to the hills this year has been a challenge. Only able to leave the house for a couple of hours at a time, I looked more closely at my nearest hills, the Ochils. Poring over maps, route planning has always been part of the enjoyment, so what fun to plan a traverse, just a personal choice...

Re: Skinny jeans on the hill in winter?

Love the video, Sgurr. Takes me back - Dachstein mitts? (I still have mine, unreasonably sentimental about old items of kit.) :)

First balloons of the year

Various circumstances contrived to postpone the planned 'shortest day' walk so it was a real pleasure to be out early in January (even if the temperature never rose above -2 degrees C). First 'hill' of the day - Hill of Garvock, distance and ascent from the car 4.4km and 74m. McMole gained a few mor...

In training for Sub 2Ks

Still working my way through all the significant hills south of the Highland Boundary Fault - but most of those remaining are not very close, not good for shortening winter days - so today I decided to revisit the Cairnwell area, easy hills and not too far from home Very very different to being on m...

Re: Wind Turbine Spotting?

One of my least-enjoyed local walks - I was there on a bright sunny day and the large moving shadows thrown across the track in front of me made me feel quite nauseous. No desire to go back there .................
