Re: Rest and be Thankful route options

Options 2 and 3 would lead to a lot of extra traffic on the A82 up Lochlomondside so would seem to me to be non-starters unless the A82 was significantly improved. It's bad enough as it is.

Re: Seventy (!!) parking fines issued at Loch Lomond

But who are the “ powers that be?” NC500 is a great route, but generally self publicised by small tourism businesses and social media. People living on the route who don’t work in hospitality or tourism don’t generally seem too keen on it in my experience. The NC500 was devised by the North Highland...

Re: Seventy (!!) parking fines issued at Loch Lomond

Big campervans in tight hill car parks can be incredibly frustrating. Fair enough if that's folks' method of transport & accommodation for their "staycation" and hillwalking is their activity of choice - in that case they usually don't have much option - but it does my head in when you...

Re: Seventy (!!) parking fines issued at Loch Lomond

No. Visit Scotland but don't park your car where it is going to be a danger and huge inconvenience to other people.Obey the law or suffer the consequences.

Re: Ben Ledi or Ben Venue

The car parks at both Ben Ledi and Ben Venue will be full very early on Saturday and Sunday if the weather is fine and probably even if it isn't. Parking on the road is not permitted at Ben Venue or Ben A'an and is being policed. The National Park is running a scheme that monitors how full car parks...

Re: No parking on A821

Not a single car parked along the road this afternoon when I went past. The police car stationed nearby might have had something to do with it.

No parking on A821

Emergency measures have been inroduced to prevent people parking on the A821 between Aberfoyle and Kilmahog. This is in response to the volume of traffic in the area and irresponsible parking by people wishing to climb Ben Venue and Ben A'an. The road was actually closed by the police last weekend. ...

Re: ‘New walkers’ on the hills.

I expect a lot of them would usually be sitting on a beach in Spain.

Re: Sealskin gloves.

I have three pairs of Sealskins gloves and find them excellent. They do a range of gloves including waterproof down mittens if you are worried about insulation. Keeping your hands dry goes a long way towards keeping them warm anyway.

Re: Cape Wrath Trail Ullapool Accommodation

When I got to Inverlael I started walking towards Ullapool and stuck my thumb out every time a vehicle came along. It wasn't long before I was picked up by a very nice young couple, despite being rather wet and having a large rucksack. They dropped me off at the campsite in Ullapool and even offered...
