Re: Scotland: (tentative) July 3rd date for end of 5-mile ru

There are at least 100,000,000,000 midges, millions of clegs, and billions of ticks all sitting there waiting for their free food. They have been starving for months ..... And that's without the tens of thousands of crockles, neds and others all desperate to dump their litter and start a few fires. ...

Re: Scottish tourism could reopen on July 15th

The slight problem with planning Scottish highland trips is I want to pick a time when the weather is favourable, outside of peak midge activity, and at a time of year when getting to the higher summits (1000m+) isn't going to be hampered by snow and ice, and ideally not having to worry about stalk...

Re: New Coronavirus Law

A woman fell into the Walton burn, near Castlecary today. Several Scottish Fire and Rescue units attended with the woman being taken to hospital in Glasgow. No mention of Reckless and Fellonious conduct or Police laying charges against the woman. It seems clear that SFandR are less likely to be aff...

Re: New Coronavirus Law

Could be waiting a long time to enjoy the outdoors and visit distant family if this is anything to go by. https://uk.yahoo.com/news/coronavirus-uk-long-way-to-go-160502635.html Yahoo doesn't understand the difference between "the UK", their term; and "England", the jurisdiction ...

Re: New Coronavirus Law

I'm not sure if circumstances similar to mine have came up before. I am classed as a key worker and my job takes me all over Scotland. A lot of the time on the way back from wherever i happen to be i decide to stop and find somewhere to walk. Whether that be up a hill or anywhere really. Sometimes ...

Re: New Coronavirus Law

I am quite certain that had the 2 people who were rescued been properly equipped and experienced for what they were doing, and local to the area, no charges would have been brought. The issue IMO was that having already breached the Covid-19 guidelines, they additionally then put other people at ris...

Re: New Coronavirus Law

MRTs... never in a million years did I think I'd end up thinking of you as a bunch of bigoted idiots. You might want to seriously reconsider what you said there ;) MRTs will rescue people regardless, Whether the police decide to bring a prosecution for recklessly endangering the lives of the MRTs d...

Re: Trail/walking shoes

I walked (part of) the CWT last year carrying a ~15kg load in a pair of Oboz Sawtooth trail shoes. And even though my feet were constantly wet I had no blisters and no problems at all. I love them. But they are not easily available in the UK. Personally I would only wear boots for winter hillwalking...

Re: New Coronavirus Law

I suppose they could be social distancing etc, but how far have these motorhomes come? Too far, according to the FM Traffic around beauty spots like Loch Lomond and Glen Coe was "about three times higher" than it was the previous weekend, with Ms Sturgeon saying it was "hard to see h...

Re: Stay at home

. One issue in the near future is now everyone has been told to avoid public transport if they can help it (because of social distancing difficulties), the primary roads are probably going to be even more rammed full for years, and am I ever going to be able to use the sleeper to nip up to the high...
