Re: Appleton Thorn, Grappenhall, Walton & Stretton

I enjoyed seeing your pictures of Grappenhall. For a few years In the 1960s I used to live in a bungalow in the grounds of Grappenhall Hall School as my father was a teacher at the school.

Re: Lochnager Help - Complete novice!

Re: Lairig Ghru Take Two - Braeriach 3/4 traverse

Great report! The pictures of snow were really appreciated. We have the last 2 weeks in May booked in the Cairngorms and I am thinking my skills are not up to coping with the snow! The snow wasn't a problem today. I did The devil's point and Cairn Toul from the Linn o dee ( long walk in and out!) T...
