Re: Jeans question

Agree with suggestion for track suit bottoms - but use polyester or similar, as cotton takes too long to dry once wet - and it will get wet however much you 'proof' it .

R fork to SgF came much later (and higher) than guide suggested. It was eroded rocky, uneven and even steeper than before. Struggled to get beari...

Ben Cruachan stile getting worse?

Was up Cruachan summit on Tuesday in blinding windy rain. One of the few things I actually could see apart from the rain on my specs was that the stile at the end of the forest is becoming increasingly risky. An attempt to stabilise it with a piece of rope is now only moderately helpful and several ...

White Mounth - clockwise or anti?

Hoping to do WM circuit this week. Was initially going anti-clockwise as per WH book, but see some favour clockwise , ie from the Broad Cairn end. Any key issues for either option?

Alnham to Hartside Farm

Alnham is only a few miles from the A697, but the journey is slow because the roads are narrow and badly signed from Whittingham. The walk started a few metres W of the Church, turning N up a steep boggy path to bear NE to join the 'orange' track for 50 metres to reach a waymarker. Here I turned lef...

Re: Hello Newbie Here

Hi Neil
Granny, eggs etc but if you haven't used it, the Meeting up and walking groups forum on this site might work for you. I invariably go solo but its largely because I tend to go last minute.

Re: Dogs and livestock

Agree with Boots&Paddles.
Also think Caberfeidh may have a point even if its reminiscent of the make-up Hammer Films used in their 'Hound of the Baskervilles, circa 1960. Sheep safe, escaped convicts beware.
