Re: "ABC" Watches

I think you have a good shortlist there. I have the Garmin Instinct and would definitely recommend it. It covers every sport, battery life is good, you can really customise it if you want and I think you can get it at a good price as they have the new solar charging ones out now. The Garmin Connect ...

Re: Munros.. Which order?

I guess it depends on what time period that you want to do them over. I think the average compleation is 16 years so, depending on your age/fitness, then you might not want to leave all the hard ones until last. I think I would echo the other posters and say that variety is key. You probably want to...

Re: Cairngorm Munro Planning

Thanks to all who have replied with their ideas. Seems prudent to do MCB and SG together in one day and I will investigate the other walk reports and ideas that people have pointed me to,

Much appreciated

Cairngorm Munro Planning

Hi All, Just lifting my eyes to the horizon and thinking about how I can do sets of Munros when this current situation improves. I enjoy planning but it would be good to get the wisdom of the fine folk on here to see how they would tackle the Cairngorm Munros. I have done the Braeriach-Cairntoul tra...

Lost Leki Walking Poles

HI All,

After a tough day in the Drumochter summits I drove off without putting my walking poles in my car. They were left at Layy 87 and I will reward anyone who is able to return them. Thanks for any info.

Re: straying off paths

People can be quite lazy and therefore want the path of least resistance to stand at the top of a hill or mountain so whilst there can be longer, sometimes "better" routes up hills or mountains it makes sense to put a car park at the bottom of the most common route up and controlling peopl...

Re: straying off paths

Some walks do encourage you to stay on them e.g. Schieahallion. The walk reports advise you to not short cut etc but this advice is usually for some of the busiest hills and mountains so understandable to avoid erosion etc.
