Re: Don't cross the line

Not comparing like with like "The pair had been walking along the track about two miles north of Rannoch Station, near Corrour, when they were struck at 18:40 on Tuesday." There have been similar incidents with shortcuts being taken at Rannoch Station. A totally different magnitude of risk...

Re: Don't cross the line

"My view is that, even if it seems pointless, is to use the crossings." If past incidents of this problem are anything to go by the crossings may be the problem, and the blighters are trying to prevent their use. Is this the old "Authorised Users" only thing resurfacing again - i...

Re: Strathfarrar Munro's - Anyone done these from Strathcono

I have done Ruadh from Strathconon. It is a long way but a good route providing the river can be dealt with. You get to appreciate the desolation of Strath Orrin.

Re: Cows on hills

Not having a dog, I don't worry too much about cattle save Limousin bulls that seem to turn up every where. I have had problems with them in the past at home. One place you may want to take care and nobody will ever bribe me enough to go there with a dog is Glen Forsa on Mull. There are a few nutter...

Re: Romantic engagement locations

Nancy's - now unbeatable as the place is no more.
The hard bit was the bike in from Newtonmore.

Re: beinn a'chroinn

I expect this one has been surveyed to death. I would not worry too much - footprints on a few munros in winter have shown that the summit is often missed for something slightly lower.

Re: Felling

"But why cant they build them next to our main roads and towns citys ect"

Because that means some poor ***s will have to live by them. I would go mad with that constant noise - I live by a power station, a dirty but useful one, but thank goodness it is not wind.

Re: Lowest drop between Munros

The biggest mess in that awful 1997 version of "Munro's" tablesTM was trying to merge in Alan's work. That is an oil and water job. Munro answered a question with some fantastic research in the 1890's. His legacy - a somewhat quirky list of hills which is well loved. Those of us wanting a ...

Re: into the wild

Would that be Ken o' the Staonaig. He lived in the house up the glen from Craiguanaich Lodge and then built a log cabin in the wood between railway and loch. If so, how is he doing.

Re: Walking forum's...How loyal are you?

Rarely come here - keep losing the password, and then wanting to kill something when the captcha comes up (necc.evil!). Tend to hang out over on SH, better coverage of smaller hills, which are more my bag, so to speak. Started out on uk.rec.walking until driven mad by trolls and spam. (See captcha a...
