Re: Carpark and route closed!

On 28th Feb 2021 the car park was still closed and paths closed because of "landslips". We parked at the dam and went up the route from Garrison Farm: no sign of any landslips. We noticed that some others had moved the cones aside and parked in the car park regardless.

Re: Ben Challum - a better way?!

I'm tempted to buy a cheapish pair of waterproof rubber boots: they won't breath, of course, but what's the point of b...

Re: Glen Sherup circular

Prompted by your report, my wife and I did this walk yesterday and found your description of the going to be spot-on. I should, however, point out that your figures are quite understated: the turning point at the watershed is more than 5km from the car park as the crow flies so the actual distance c...
