Re: Finding a pitch in areas of long tussocky grass

. I'm also thinking that google sat view might be handy? Anyone used that in preparing a trip? The resolution for hills doesn't seem as good as it is on cities though.

That's the one. :clap:

Why the OS spell it with a K on their maps beats me.

Re: Name that Loch!

https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49963827123_edd257e62a_b.jpg Thought I would bring the picture forward to a new page. Clues so far: According to the OS map one might just pig out on the road just past this loch. Next clue: What sounds a bit like an unfounded rumour is that a strath nearby bears...

1 Loch Crinan

3 Loch Spelve

Re: Name that Loch!

I'm thinking Loch Veyatie with the possibility that Cul Mor is off to the left.

Re: PHOTO COMPETITION #99 — March 2020
