Re: Taking a senior wild camping advice

And another thing - wild camping also requires a certain mindset re toilets/washing/cooking - all good fun once that mindset is established but tricky at first for especially 'seniors' (I am in fact sort of senior in terms of B&Q vouchers/free prescriptions/no bus pass) Nonetheless, it sounds a ...

Re: Taking a senior wild camping advice

I know its the default suggestion but probably the West Highland Way would be a good intro to wild camping as it is relatively easy walking with loads of escape routes...don't be too ambitious is probably my best advice!

Re: Weather Apps

Not sure if it has an app but the Norwegian Weather forecasting service (Yr.no) has always been very good for UK weather too....and Accuweather the least good - IMO And if weather forecasting is your thing the German Wetterzentral is always spot on as is the BBC Shipping forecast as you can see weat...

Re: Sutherland Trail - safety?

good ideas there but DO NOT rely on your phone for location - get map skills!

Re: Sutherland Trail - safety?

The West Highland Way? a popular route but wild camping opportunities and a good further intro to the Highlands with a few 'escape' routes if rain and midges overwhelm!

Re: ‘New walkers’ on the hills.

Not getting this at all - I go to the mountains/hills for peace and quiet so why the honey pots? I really do not want to hear others on the hills chatting away but totally respect that some people like that.

PS If anyone wants me look to the wild places....

Re: First wild camping experience

my best bet would be to camp near a beach where a gentle breeze will lull you to sleep...no midges either :D

Re: BBC Alba Sunday 1955hrs

Back in the day was there not a bunch of lads working the Glasgow docks who did similar stuff using ropes off ships and in tacky boots?

And is that where the expression The Bimbler's came from?

Re: New Coronavirus Law

make sure you keep a safe distance though as Science tells us: Bourouiba, a fluid dynamics scientist at MIT, has spent the last few years using high-speed cameras and light to reveal how expulsions from the human body can spread pathogens, such as the novel coronavirus. Slowed to 2,000 frames per se...

Re: New Coronavirus Law

As a Uni research scientist I'm still on my soap box here re use/abuse of the word 'scientific'. Example: an Establishment 'scientific' claim that, sadly, the death rate currently is higher than we would expect at this time of year for the elderly and vulnerable. Analyse the data, and so after a par...

Re: New Coronavirus Law

Have we really reached the stage where in order to achieve compliance, we have to enshrine in law the consistently communicated and widely understood guidance that tells us to stay within 5 miles of home when we exercise? Just do the right thing, not the easy thing. Please. This will end soon. Avid...
