Just for the record.

There was no “personal attack”

Re: Daftest thing you've done whilst on a hill..

Forgot my cag, found out halfway up Tower Ridge.

Not being a Rain God, I got away with it. Showers about, they missed.

Re: Peanmeanach bothy to close as an open shelter

Disgraceful article in the Guardian today. Sadly, there will be consequences, especially with another book coming.

Moderator: the second part of this post was a personal attack and has been removed

Re: Missing Hills

Plenty do, but you can pick you own height qualification.
There is a move now to promote 100m prominence hills as this is is a common qualification used internationally.

The hills will remain there, nobody compiled them.

Re: Peanmeanach bothy to close as an open shelter

Last there in 1987. It was busy, live trees cut(Coppiced) and there was a litter problem. Worth remembering that it has been promoted by a major English newspaper as an idea for a cheap holiday, who knows where else on the mainland - it was in a popular German guidebook back then. Still plenty of go...

Re: 4 rescued from Ben Nevis today...

I don’t think most of us in the hills want bureaucracy, expense, loss of access rights and legal jeopardy imposed on us.

Lochaber MRT don’t.

Re: straying off paths

Beware the onward march of the electric fence. Braes of Angus are bad for these. I recently got caught in Selkirkshire on the wrong side of nearly 3km of crossingless electric (Turner Cleuch Law). I climbed a gap between post and insulator and got away with it. Rather scary... like a very, very narr...

Re: 4 rescued from Ben Nevis today...

I wonder what other access rights the compulsory insurance advocates are willing to surrender on our behalf?

Re: When do you count a Munro?

Worth remembering that not setting out in bad conditions will not always protect you. Hills don’t play fair, and you will encounter the scary stuff if you go out often enough. So far I have been in only two whiteouts. Carn Ghlausaid and Meagaidh, both scary places to navigate. There is an infamous p...

Re: 4 rescued from Ben Nevis today...

By now it should be common knowledge that there are some pretty stupid people out there and that some of us do daft things. We should be very careful that this appalling lack of judgement does not become a hard case that makes a bad law. Let the non hillgoing public judge us, or make the rules and w...

Re: Ben Avon on foot the whole way

The Bolster Stone was once overtopped, certainly the Clown’s Banana was not the hp when I was up there 1994.

Re: The best way to get to Essan bothy?

This no longer works

I once got dropped off by a train. Quite a leap of faith in the dark as the line is raised.

As any one who takes part in the sport of orienteering will tell you.
Courses are shorter to compensate, but usually pure quality.
