Re: Music while you walk

Yes Simon-b its a great point, the silences and sounds provided by the mountains are as equally contributing to a great days walk. Naturally a wider safety awareness is so important.

Music while you walk

Hopefully soon we will all be able to get back to some great mountain days. On my walks I usually use my iPod which I find actually can add to the ambiance of my walk.

Re: Glencoe hillwalkers fined for travel violation.

Yes both previous posts are correct. I use gps equipment mearly as a backup, but never as a primary. The Map and compass skills - are first and foremost as are all of your points, both well made. Thus my point I eluded to in my last post - regular practice and execrcises in map reading are vital. GP...

Re: ViewRanger/OutdoorActive Merging

O/S Map and compass, never needs downloading, no batteries required and always works. The WH maps with the route description and details always a super accompniament to proper planning.

Re: Glencoe hillwalkers fined for travel violation.

If you dislike the government that is entirely your right, but please do not spread misinformation on this forum about the rules not being clear. They are crystal clear and you have been repeatedly i...

Re: Glencoe hillwalkers fined for travel violation.
