Re: Lead and safety suggestions for 3 dogs?

I use a ruffwear webharness for my dogs. Its good for assisting the dog over obstacles etc (if you have a look on their site it will explain further). I also have a palisades pack which is a dog rucksack which can be removed leaving a webharness on the dog. Only my younger dog uses the pack and she ...

Re: How did you first take to the hills?

Years of working and a love of outdoorsy stuff going by the wayside would probably have continued had I not experienced a very unfortunate incident that left me with the risk of losing everything. This luckily didn't happen and the ending was a happy one however it did leave me with some time on my ...

Re: Afraid of cows

I admit to being terrified of cows and have had a few "moments". I have two dogs which increases the risk however and I am aware of that. I too am mostly a solo walker, or have been. Only recently have some friends from work joined me and this is more frequent now. So how do I manage the c...

Re: New gloves

I replaced my Dachstein gloves just a couple of years ago so you can still get them. I take them with nearly all the time (well ok, not summer). They live at the bottom of my rucksack and I second how warm they are. I have to say though that I have a pair of Montane pertex ones that work with my pho...

Re: Dogs on Grouse Moors

I take my two to the areas you have mentioned on more occasions than I care to remember and hope to do so for a long time yet! No bother with gamekeepers who have always been pleasant if I have come across them. As regards to panniers, I use the Ruffwear palisades one that has a detachable harness. ...

Re: Project Xmas Bothy

A couple of hot water bottles wont hurt to sit at your backs and through the night in your sleeping bag might be an idea and wont be heavy to carry either (wee radiators really!) If in a jacket they stay warm for ages :o

Re: If you could only visit one area of Scotland again...

All of the places mentioned are beautiful and this is difficult but for me it would be walking in one of the Caledonian Pine forests at this time of year in the Cairngorms where the smell of heather is like honey.

Re: Ben More - likelihood of cattle encounter?

I remember going up from the North side with my two wonderfully behaved dogs. No Cows. HOWEVER, on the way back, the field was full of cattle a lowing with calves afoot. It was a nerve racking walk through between them. Because I am seriously feart of them. Despite having done the two Munros I felt ...

Re: walking trollheimen norway

I did an 8 day back pack through the Dovrefjell region. I never did plan on using their huts but knew they were there which was a bit of a mind security blanket! I timed my walk so that I camped fairly near some of the huts as it kinda made sense as they were near water sources and the camping was g...

Re: Boot Fitting!

Can I suggest you are maybe worrying a bit too much? If you have a wee bit room in your boots then that will allow for your feet to swell when walking. If its concerning you then look for good suggestions on you tube showing you different ways to lace your boots which can I add, often benefit from a...

Re: Taking my dog to Skye

If you are not planning on the Black Cuillin, dont mind keeping your dogs on a leash for some of the time and if he/she is behaved there are some good walks if you stay relatively low or as said avoiding the Black Cuillin. I took my two from Sligachan to Loch Coruisk and wild camped and it was fine....
