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...

Re: Stay at home

Just as there is no curfew on when you may go hillwalking, cycling or whatever (we're coming up to the best time of year for those who enjoy a bit of night walking) there is no ban on staying outdoors overnight. For obvious reasons there is a restriction in overnighting in a household other than yo...

Re: Stay at home

Glas Allt Shiel bothy has now been locked due to idiots misusing it when they weren't even allowed to be there in the first place :(

Remember: even if you can go hillwalking, you can't yet stay out overnight and you absolutely cannot use a bothy.

Re: 5 mile "advice"

5 miles is a suggestion as to what local may mean to most people. But it's not a hard and fast rule. On the other hand, 50 miles probably isn't local under any definition. Use common sense. And do what is necessary as opposed to what you want. Also remember of course that it is currently still unlaw...

Re: Tick / cleg repellant

I have never had any ticks when using Smidge, but that may just be coincidence. I also treat my clothing with permethrin (from Lifesystems) before any long trips. I am pretty sure the only thing that deters clegs though is 2 inch armour plating. And I'm not sure they wouldn't get through that. Fortu...

Re: Deposit Payment

Tony, who runs it on behalf of the owners, lives in Shropshire during the winter and obviously hasn't been able to get back up to KLH. So, if he's handling bookings, it may be he hasn't got your message. He's a really decent guy so I'm sure you'll get a refund in due course.

Re: Days without rain

Down here in Englandshire I've had longer dry spells. But rarely such sunny spells. All change today with 12mm of rain - my 2nd wettest day of the year!

Re: Fisherfield question

Worth noting that Beinn a Chlaidheimh is no longer a Munro, so it's now the Fisherfield 5 ...... Not that that should be any reason not to include it!

Re: Stay at home

Just wondering. I have a dog. It needs walking. Won't pee or whatever in the back garden & I don't fancy a trashed house so walking we have to go. Usually meet quite a lot of people but they are mostly keeping the required distance from one another. It is a town environment and you cannot legis...

Re: backpacking training in the current climate

Even doing a low level walk with a full pack helps :) Doesn't need to be a Munro! I thought I should train my body to walk against gravity, but if flat walks will help, I could do the Horsham riverside walk (13 miles), which is no longer in the river now the weather has got much drier. I found it a...

Re: Self isolation and effect on hill environment

Hopefully less litter! And there may be some recovery of paths that get heavily used.
