Re: Should I go?

TBH I’ve not seen or read anything unless you’re talking about the numpties at the border, as it’s toward the end of the month I don’t see any problems unless we go into lockdown again

Kerloch From The South

Walked with Ledi

Did this from the south to keep within the 5 mile guideline, up through Mid hill windfarm and back via the Stock Mounth right of way

Re: Where will you be going?

Somewhere pathless, boggy and awkward to get to

Re: New Coronavirus Law

So I could travel anywhere to meet someone and go for a walk and still be within the guidance but if I take that same walk myself, I wouldn’t be?

Re: New Coronavirus Law

From what I've seen and read on lockdown, there's 3 people 1. Stick religiously to the guidance 2. Looks for loopholes to bend the rules slightly to give themselves a bit more freedom 3. Flouts it completely I think most (especially cyclists :lol: :lol: ) fall into the 2nd category There seems to b...

Re: New Coronavirus Law

An excellent post here that covers the implications of the Crianlarich Two being charged. I agree 100%. I am just suprised that outdoors journalists do not seem to be raising these issues much in the media. http://parkswatchscotland.co.uk/2020/06/05/covid-19-why-the-police-charges-against-the-two-c...

Re: New Coronavirus Law

Quite an interesting and depressing post on Lochaber MRT's Facebook page, which refers to people threatening to stop donations etc. Lockdown really has brought the worst out in people. Amusingly I thought walkers would be above this sort of childishness, but clearly not. Some of the anti-MRT commen...

Re: New Coronavirus Law

Mountaineering Scotland now spouting some nonsense which basically says if you stay off the hill you wont be prosecuted. Mountain Rescue now once again saying they are not here to judge even though the message yesterday was they were pleased to see the police charge 2 hill walkers. Meanwhile Forth ...

Re: Advice for training a dog to sleep in a tent!

I'd advise doing it in the garden for a while as well to get them used to it. Mine (Border Terrier) is still a bit unsure when the tent goes up
