Re: Cairngorm Trip Parking

There is parking at Inverdruie next to the tennis courts at NH900110 Scotland https://maps.app.goo.gl/spKzzUKRfwztqTVJA It's a few months since I have used it but as far as I know it's still unrestricted, free and long stay. If you park in Aviemore itself it's only a couple of miles and a fine start...

Re: The benefits of bright clothing

At certain times of year the colours of the moorland foliage make even orange, red and yellow clothing become some kind of camouflage. For truly gruesome colours and designs, watch some 1980s video footage of hikers and climbers; random arrangements of yellow and purple shapes made waterproof jacke...

Re: Munros with 'meh' views...

The walkhighlands route is far better underfoot than the one in the munros book and a fine easy-ish stroll up the hill. :D

Re: Loch Ossian Camping

Just to add, at the moment coming from the south you might have a problem doing the hills in one day between trains due to covid restrictions and amended timetables. It should still be possible from the north but best to check nearer the time.

It's a fantastic area. :D

Re: Loch Ossian Camping

This is where I camped between the YH and Peters Rock. The grass had to be flattened before hand but very comfortable. It was surprisingly not near any running water but apart from that a fine spot. There was a bit of a commotion on the other side of the loch when the station pub bar shut in the ear...

Re: Ben Alder from Dalwhinnie on foot

I've cycled in several times it would be a long walk. 12.6 hours is a quick time for walking it. It would be a hard day for me but very rewarding as you say. :D

Re: New Covid law 26/4/2021

Well, you've somewhat misrepresented my point, I said that non-members had little valid grounds to criticise the approach to government of the organisation. If you're not a member of an representative body then you can make your own representations, if you care enough. You remain at liberty to have...

Re: So how busy was it?

Was on Gulvain today by the "normal" route from Kinlocheil. Arrived at 7 am nothing in the parking area apart from an artic lorry and driver. I carried on under the railway bridge and parked in the big space there. There was only one other person on the hill (on that route anyway) the whol...

Re: New Covid law 26/4/2021

If you are experienced mountaineer in Scotland, having had your representative organisation spectacularly fail you, the the only logical conclusion is that their is now no point to membership. I won’t be rejoining . I would be interested to hear from MS, with some details of how they lobbied on our...

Re: So how busy was it?

Took a run up to Ullapool for lunch today. It took about just over an hour from Inverness. Next to nothing on the road after the turn off for Dingwall. The Ben Wyvis car park looked fairly busy but not full. It was around midday so probably some had been and gone. At Blackbridge for the corbetts the...
