Re: How to make the inside of a tent darker?

Yes and a lot lighter (pardon the pun) than Black out tents or dark sheets draped around the inside or over your tent. :lol:

Re: North Face Car Park (Ben Nevis, CMD, Nevis Range trails)

This may refer to parking further in, near the fence crossing. People park up there i think to avoid the walk in from North Face cp. I've even seen folks parked up having a picnic due to the views of the mountains. The road in to the cp may be the least affected but worth keeping an eye on access up...

Re: Ground conditions thread(s)?

Sometimes I find it hard to decide on what boots to wear at this time of year. Example. Last week I was on the Eastern Drumochter plateau where four days before had been a deep covering of snow, so do I go for full winter boot or my normal boot. I opted for the normal boot (Scarp Ranger) and low and...

Re: Walking up to Lochnagar

Before I could write a real report, I have to get all my details first.

So I am just asking here: Who else has been there?

In those days I was living in Dunndee.






Me, I've been there. :wink:

Snow Conditions

Anyone with up to date snow conditions for Broad Cairn, Cairn Bannoch from Glen Muick. I'm looking at this as a possible for Sunday as it seems precipitation is more likely and sooner further West.

Re: First highlands May 2022 - Midges, ticks, car rental

Smidge for the Midge's it's kinder to your skin than Deet.
Permethrin will kill the Tick's on contact (Life Systems, spray on your clothing)
Enterprise Car Hire, competitive prices but full cover adds a significant amount to the overall cost.

Enjoy your trip.

Anyone having issues trying to Log In online or use the app.

I can't Log In to either, does this mean the server is probably down at the moment? :roll:

Re: Camping with your Dog.

I took my Labrador on his first camp last week (Loch Callater) White Mounth Munro's, the tent i use for my summit camps is the Cloud Up 2 but its a bit tight in there with him as he's so big so I've just purchased the Cloud Peak 2 for the added room for when he comes along. Extra weight to carry but...

Re: Parking for Gairich at Loch Quoich dam

I think there may have been a Landslide near the dam (not sure).
There is limited parking after the dam on the way along to the bridge.

The Cairnwell Eight

What started out as an intention to do the Cairnwell three, grew arms and legs until it was decided to just do the eight in one go. Well why not eh! The weather for the weekend 5th-6th June looked fine with possibly some rain making it's way through Perthshire, we might see a shower so I shoved in m...

Re: And my next question....walking poles

I once spent a wad on a good Leki pole with the intention of buying another, I didn't have a lot of money at the time. I proceeded to leave said pole hanging on a fence a fair way up Ben Challum and there was no way I was going back up for it. Only realised when I got back down to the railway crossi...

Re: How difficult is Minlgavie to Drovers Inn in two days

Its certainly do-able but both days are 20miles so as long as your fit for it. Day 1 Milngavie to Balmaha easy enough, you only have Conic hill hill as an obstacle. Day 2 is the worst day of all in my opinion as the loch shore path is pretty unrelenting, mentally as well as physically. It's a long w...

Re: Dogs and Hills

Whatever breed you decide upon I would recommend training your dog to recall to a whistle. I have had working Springers and Labs for the last twenty years so whistle training is essential while in the field. My Labs like to wander while out on the hills but respond immediately when called. It's a go...
