Does anyone know whether it's OK to leave your car for a couple of nights in the Glen Affric car park or do th...

Replacement Hood Peak Wire

The wire that stiffens the peak on my Rab windproof has snapped. The rest of the jacket is in decent nick (its only 15 years only, and has a mere 3 holes :roll: ) so I'd like to repair it. Has anyone replaced the wire and if so what did you use? I'm struggle to find anything strong enough but flexib...

Re: Most underrated hill range in Scotland

I do indeed Caberfeidh. Though I didn't think the Galloway Hills counted as a since range so I narrowed it down to the Dungeon Hills specificly as they have the most granite, the best climbing, the longest access, the roughest terrain, and none of those pesky paths, Munros or Corbetts which seem to ...

Re: Most underrated hill range in Scotland

Re: Grayside Wind Farm - Culter Fell, Hudderstone and Surrou

Thanks for your replies all. I'm in complete agreement about conifers! I should highlight I'm not opposed to all wind farms, onshore wind has, at least in the short to medium term, to be a part of any future carbon-neutral electricity generation plan. However, there are plenty of better sites, forme...

Grayside Wind Farm - Culter Fell, Hudderstone and Surroundin

You can view details of the development here: https://graysidewindfarm.co.uk/ I am generally a big supporter of renewable energy, and would acknowledge that on-shore wind is an important part...

Re: Outdoor Access right to roam

I should probably have added you shouldn't go through the formal gardens, past the house, or within the curtilage on any building to gain access to the woodland.

Re: Outdoor Access right to roam

Here is the full guidance. https://www.outdooraccess-scotland.scot/sites/default/files/2018-05/Publication%202005%20-%20Scottish%20Outdoor%20Access%20Code.pdf It is all worth a read if you're not familier but pages 24 and 25 are the most relevant section.
