Steall Falls path - reopened?

Can anyone confirm that the Steall Falls path (from the end of the Glen Nevis road) has been reopened after the recent repair works, which were due to be from 26 August to 3 September? I'm passing through the area tomorrow and fancy a quick walk up to the falls to stretch my legs.

Re: Two Assynt Munros (and a Corbett)

Thanks for a great report, and what a wonderful day you had for it. I was thwarted by terrible weather last time I was in Assynt, but this has inspired me to try to get back there and have a go at those Munros.

Re: Tiny images on home page

Thanks Paul. I tried clearing the cache, and also using other browsers, but, as they say, the problem persists..


Edit: after some more tweaking (clearing cookies, logging off and on again, etc) the full-size images are back :)

Tiny images on home page

Something seems to have gone wrong with the home page: the scrolling images for the "recent content" area have been replaced by tiny (100x66 pixel) thumbnails, making it look very odd.

Re: Tarbat Ness circuit - a tasty bite of seaside :) UPDATE

Thanks for this report: very nostalgic for me as my late mother and stepfather lived at Edderton (near Tain) and we used to go to "The Port" and Tarbatness a lot when visiting, later with my children and ultimately grandchildren. We actually managed a visit to the lighthouse itself once - ...

Re: Bull in a Field

A couple of years ago I came across this fine fellow by the roadside on the return part of the Bracklynn Falls walk. Fortunately he had his family with him and was in a very placid mood.

Re: Sunset from Carn Chuinneag

The walk date is wrong as well.

Nice walk though - I did it myself a few years ago, later in the spring (without the aid of a bike): there were still a few patches of snow, and I saw a ptarmigan with its chick.

Re: Dear oh Deer: Scotland’s land use saga continues

Unfortunately it's been "corrected" to 'more than 10 per square kilometer s ', and there are still two references to square hectares. A sentence that puzzled me was: 'In Norway, 10% of the general population are engaged in deer control'. That seems an extraordinarily high percentage: if it...

Re: Struie Hill and Struie

Lovely to see these photos. My late mother and stepfather lived a couple of miles away at Edderton. so climbing Struie was a regular event for me and my siblings when visiting them, often with our young children - and more recently some of their children.

Steall falls wire bridge

A couple of questions about the famous (or notorious?) wire bridge at Steall Falls (prompted by a very wet walk there today - the falls were looking particularly spectacular): 1. When was it built, and by whom? 2. Who currently owns/is responsible for it? 3. Are there, or have there ever been, any p...
