Re: Two Carns from Glen Callater

Glen Callater is a great approach for these hills. I like to take the bike up to the bothy. Brilliant path from there all the way to Lochnagar.
Cheers :D

Re: The Big Scary One at the back of the Three Sisters.

Great stuff John, another cracking day. Had one of my best days ever up there. You need to go back again on a clear day because the views are unbelievable. It is possible to avoid the river crossing by crossing further upstream where it is underground or beneath the stones. I did this completely by ...

Re: An Ossian Odyssey - the long walk, goodnight,

Great report Gill and a great area to spend a few days. I think Leum Uilleim is my favourite hill in there.
Cheers :D

Re: In Praise of Gondolas on Aonach Mor/Beag

Re: New covid restrictions

Here is the link to the Scotgov site https://www.gov.scot/publications/coronavirus-covid-19-what-you-can-and-cannot-do/ Beyond belief that it now seems the only way daughter, 4 kids and 2 of us can have Xmas is GO TO A PUB and shout from adjacent tables. That surely can't be safer than having it in...

Re: New covid restrictions

...but in terms of where I have been I haven't seen anyone hitching since the Covid thing started. Has anyone else? Hadn't actually thought about it until now but you're right. I also don't recall seeing anyone seeking a lift over the last few months. I have seen a few people walking the road in Gl...

Re: Fife Pilgrim Way

so why the omission? The fife pilgrim way is a fairly new official route and I guess it might be included in the future. It's a lot to expect walkhighlands to have every possible route on their website. Walkhighlands walks are extremely well researched and probably the most extensive walking site t...

Re: Parking for Schiehallion / Braes of Foss Car Park

The council have made the Schiehallion road a clearway, so no roadside parking within a couple of miles of Braes of Foss. Get there early if you want a space in the car park! Yes and I understand why, there is no excuse for blocking the road. Getting there early is good advice. Only problem is with...

Re: Managing tourism - working together

I disagree SE England has some of the worst transport infrastructure. People moan about the trains but they do in general get people to work (if you want to see a poor rail network, look at Northern rail). We have a decent network of primary routes and dual carriageways for people who have (want) t...

Re: Parking for Schiehallion / Braes of Foss Car Park

Of course in a perfect world every hill would have plenty parking for everyone. Unfortunately in the real world many hills have very little or no official car park and common sense should be used. I would hope most people wouldn't choose to park on the road or choose a spot where they are going to w...
