Re: In Pinn - will it all go horribly wrong?

I'd suggest going for a practice abseil in a less exposed spot with your daughter first. This should allow you to relax about that part.

I parked opposite the distillery, plenty of room there and if you're cycling then another kilometer is nothing

Re: Tackling Skye

Re: frugal way to get 1:25k topo maps on a GPS device?

Another App for android phone is "maverick" only this one is free to download all maps, you just scroll over the area you are going to be in and it is automatically stored in memory for use when you are off line

Re: Cape wrath Info needed. Falls of Glomach alternative?

Rather than dropping down Coire Easach it looks like you could continue along for about another KM going up slightly before descending the path down Alt Tarsuinn, this looks a lot less steep and an obvious dog leg around the steep part
