Re: Scrambling Boots and shoes

I recently did 3 days in the Cuillins wearing Salewa Mountain Trainers, no issues despite them having not much in the way of tread remaining (they’re coming up for 4 years old and heavy use)

Re: Gleouraich and Spidean Mialach

I'd say anti-clockwise as you have "that view" for most of the descent

Re: Beinn a' Chuallaich B847 – No Parking

The sign was there last November.

I just assumed that it was a generic no parking sign for a passing place but as there's sufficient room not to obstruct it I ignored it and did the full circuit

Re: Queueing for summit selfies

I mind seeing this on Ben Nevis. I walked by the queue, touched the trig point and walked off, I did get a few glares and words uttered. I’m there to climb a hill, not queue for the perfect selfie

Re: Munros.. Which order?

I’d just go with whatever suits you at the time, there doesn’t need to be any order

Re: Off-piste on Maoile Lunndaidh

Think it’s the only Munro where the Munro summit isn’t the highest point on the hill (certainly according to hill bagging). Myself and David Main followed the right hand shoulder up but don’t remember any scrambling

Walked it with Ledi.

The walk along the loch is worth avoiding

Last minute decision, weather was ok, no views from the summit but the ridge back was pleasant enough

Re: Doggo GPS?

Have a look at Findster, doesn’t require a phone signal nor have a monthly sub obv you have a higher up front cost. I’m guessing you’ve now found out that borders have a mind of their own and wilfully ignore you if there’s something better on the go? I’ve got an 8m flexi attached to my rucksack wit...
