Re: An Sgarsoch/Carn an Fhidhlier - how far by bike

I have got past Geldie Lodge on a mountain bike. The big issue in the district is the burn crossings.

Re: A Cheap Lesson Learned.

Sat down in a bothy now, just me and the ghosts that are memories. Thinking of the Nest and our battle through Winter spates to get to it and then later reading about its loss in High. Wish I had a dram to raise in its memory

Re: Stalking In Glen Lyon

Horrid sign… full of exceptionalism. Not sure if I am comfortable with access only just tolerated as long as you are a munro bagger. Never done all four in a row btw.

I’m very cooperative re stalking, but not here.. they have spent over 30 years forfeiting any good will. Letter of the Law

Re: Railway Crossing at Dalwhinnie

A reminder.. if they get away with this, then there are many other places that will be affected later Craig,Balsporran, Altnabreac, Gearnsary (Beinn Griam Beag), are some that come to mind. The fact that they are hitting access from stations is very worrying as it reinforces car travel. Dalwhinnie i...

Re: Right to roam v Private Road

I have decided to close the John Muir Way. It goes past my house and I am sure you will all respect my right to privacy. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.

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...

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...
