Re: BBC Walkhighlands article

I have heard of people doing comparable things before in the name of something they are passionate about, my question in such circumstances is how the people earn a living after giving up their jobs, given that the fundamental financial expenses of everyday life don't suddenly stop? I suppose in ou...

Re: Twice the distance/ Time

Just to be clear the distance and time (5.8km and 1.5hrs) is for the full there and back walk - not one way. The km up and down are marked in the little circles on the Walkhighlands route map. The times given try to take into account the average time for people on that particular walk and to be stan...

Re: Recommendation for app that matches location to hike rou

The Walkhighlands app does pretty much what you're describing for the 2000+ routes on Walkhighlands, you can view your location in real time without phone signal, download the route so that you don't need signal and can use the description and mapping offline, and it is designed to be very low on ba...

Re: The Allt Garbhlach crossing.

this has been on the walk description for Upper Glen Feshie (and other routes using this bit) and the map and GPS since the detour and makeshift bridge were put in by Wildland - might be useful for folk to use that bit of GPS if continuing through or for routes not on WH. https://www.walkhighlands.c...

Re: A walk spoilt

Hi JBartrup Sounds like a nasty experience. You might already have done it, but it helps if these issues get reported to the local Council's Access Officer - you can find the contact for Dumfries & Galloway here https://www.outdooraccess-scotland.scot/doc/scottish-access-officer-contact-list Acc...

Re: Maps issues

Hi Ellie

Yes, on route maps scrolling has been restricted to the area of that route.

If looking at maps more generally, we have freely scrolling map with all routes marked which can be accessed via the 'Walks nearby' link. Or we have a GPS planner across all of Scotland.
