Re: Hallin Fell and Ullswater shore path

Was going to write "lovely atmospheric photos" until I saw that Susie had written exactly the same thing!

A misty day can definitely add enjoyment to a walk, as long as it's not just blanket fog and not mixed in with heavy rain :wink:

Re: Wild camping in the Fort William - Rannoch area

I've no idea what the official rules are for how much planning is supposed to be done by the team themselves. I definitely agree that the team members should do the majority of planning themselves, but in my opinion there will always be (and should be - particularly for bronze and silver) a certain ...

Re: Discrepancies between Scottish & English OS maps

When in Scotland, a thin black dashed line on a Munro usually denotes a path...but have been doing some walks in the Lake District recently and there, they seem to denote streams...what's with that? In Scotland, a thin black dashed line (anywhere) should denote a path which is visible on the ground...

Re: October snow on the Cairn Gorm corries

Was hoping to get a walk in around that way in the next couple of weeks, but a dislocated and broken toe has put pay to our walking plans now :( Thanks for posting!! Thanks :) Still plenty of shorter walks around there for the winter mo...

October snow on the Cairn Gorm corries

My first walk report - hope it displays correctly!! our_route.gpx As the weekend approached, the BBC and MWIS both displayed encouraging signs for Saturday's weather, following a week of grey cloud and outbreaks of rain in Aberdeen.

Re: Torridon - the place in the sun

We were up on Fuar Tholl on the same day. In fact, we had to find an alternative place to park because of you :wink: by the way, did you remember seeing a coach parked sideways in the car park, taking up about half the spaces / blocking all the other cars in? It really was stunning weather that day....

Re: Northern Lights

Yes, the red alerts always seem to be issued just after I go to bed. Saw Monday's alert on Tuesday morning, so drove south from Aberdeen on Tuesday night to escape the urban glow (and cloud cover!) but couldn't really see anything much.

Re: Tourist info for Oban

On a calm, dry evening, the sunsets over the sea at Ganavan Bay (a couple of miles north of Oban) are just stunning.

Re: Snow on Cairngorms

The top 100-200m of the plateau had a light covering by the end of today thanks to frequent snow showers, which we could see from above Glenshee. Nothing too serious though - I've attached a couple of pictures which show the snow. MWIS forecasts a dry day tomorrow along with bright sunshine, so I'd ...
