Re: Can you recommend lightweight ladies boots?

Also depends on what you want them for.

I have a pair of salewa boots for scrambling and these get worn at lot because they're light, comfortable and take a lot of abuse. When not in these I am now wearing inov8 terroc shoes and getting rather used to having pleasingly cooled feet.

Re: Zephyros 1 problem

Mine doesn't look like that. I would agree, you've too much tension somewhere, although there is the result it's not necessarily the cause. Check all other attachments and what you've pulled out where. I can make mine do that if I don't get it completely lined up. Make sure your two end points, wher...

Re: Does Scotland let itself down ?

Scotland makes a huge thing about New Year and also about romantic Christmas' in the snow - but it closes all it's attractions in October not opening them again until Easter! A few years ago my mum came for her first visit to Scotland and apart from a wander around Inverness and a trip to the Wildli...

Re: Looking for a GOOD pair of walking boots

At the end of the day it's all about the fit, and socks are as important as the boots. Many a time I've seen people bemoan their once comfortable boots and I've suggested buying some new socks (socks do not last long) and it's saved them a fortune on new boots they didn't need. However, personally, ...

Re: Insect repellent

Having just returned from Skye with just one midge bite - yes ONE, I can say that the vitamin B thing works. I bought some B Complex tables and started taking a double dose of them just 3 days before leaving and then throughout the trip. I also used smidge (but only on my arms). I'm going to take th...

Staffin campsite?

Has anyone camped at staffin campsite?

If so, do you know what the cooking facilities offered are? Trying to plan what to take and someone said there's a kitchen for campers.

Also, I never usually book when I go to Skye but haven't explored this end of Skye before - should I book?

Re: Hillwalking Jacket Reccomendations

I have a Precip. Very impressed with it. It's last years model which I got from GO Outdoors for £45 I've read reviews saying it has breathability problems (but is otherwise very waterproof) - can you opine on that? :P On a long distance hike I reckon I'll sweat like a politician strapped to a lie-d...

Re: First time to Scotland

Whilst on Skye I would recommend (in addition to the above) seeing Boreraig and Suisnish. These are clearance villages and very haunting, along with great views of the Cuillins and Lochs. All in 10miles approx. Cameron McNeish covers this walk in his Skye Trail, it's also in the Cicerone Isle of Sky...

Re: What protein do you take?

Lidls do small tins of mackerel in olive oil which are delicious, so delicious I even had one for breakfast whilst backpacking because I was bored with porridge. Cheap too

Scarpa SL (not activs)

Scarpa SL size 40 ladies non goretex

Good condition with some scuffs from being on cairngorm. Would say they aren't yet broken in. I just can't be doing with their stiffness.

I think they're the M3 ones, the model before the SL Active anyway.

Collect. Nairn/Inverness

Open to sensible offers
