Unfinished business in Assynt

This adventure, and the aftermath of it, was tame, compared to the recent and now-infamous hake heist; however, I can happily report that as of the Easter weekend, the Lochinver Larder (aka “The Pie Shop”) is now open for evening repast, as well as offering a fine selection of beverages from the Bla...

Re: Waymarking on rob Roy Way

Hey, mcjump -- I walked sections of the RRW ~6-7 years ago, and at that time, it definitely wasn't waymarked (I'd expected it to be, like the WHW). We went badly wrong in the forest (one of the forests?) between Drymen and Aberfoyle, and ended up walking miles further than planned. They may have add...

Am Faochagach (Was Foggy-ach)

My first walk report (be gentle with me). No fancy stuff, like maps or GPS data. With a bit of luck, maybe a photo one or two (brief pause while I go off to read the guidelines about how to include them). Right, off we go. The WH Inchnadamph meet was imminent, and I’d approached the weekend with mor...

Re: WH 2014 SPRING MEET! **ULLAPOOL** 28/29 March 2014

Just adding my thanks to the chorus -- well done, John and HappySnapper (I'm gonna need to change my handle as well, once I think of something a bit more manageable :D) -- great location, great venue. My first meet as well, and lovely to meet so many people, and put faces to names and user names. As...

Re: WH 2014 SPRING MEET! **ULLAPOOL** 28/29 March 2014

I can vouch for the pie shop....YUM. However, last year when I was up there for the Easter break, that was the first weekend they were open in the evening, until then I think they'd been closing around 4pm or so.

Re: WH 2014 SPRING MEET! **ULLAPOOL** 28/29 March 2014

From forum lurkdom, to nagging y'all about responding to the SNH wild land consultation (have you done it yet? have you??), then straight into the Spring meet foray...it's a right whirlwind, it is. I see I'm already on the list, in the "girls dorm" with polly33 and mountainthyme. Thanks, J...

Re: NEWS: Consultation on wild land map opened by SNH

Thanks, guys, for responding, both to my post, and to the consultation (scotjamie: now that I've broken the bonds of lurk-dom, and found it to be not particularly painful, I'll make an effort to be a bit more social henceforth). I agree that deciphering this report isn't easy. I've read it several t...

Re: NEWS: Consultation on wild land map opened by SNH

I've lurked on walkhighlands for quite some time now, and have heard y'all wax eloquently about your hilltop adventures (and misadventures), as well as your views about blocked or unfriendly access, bear/wolf reintroduction, hill tracks, and heading into the mountains without being adequately prepar...
