Re: Trump Turnberry?!

Just for info - these are automated ads served by Google, we can and do block offensive categories but I don't think this could include a golf course.

Re: King's Seat - a Saturday stroll in the western Sidlaws

Michelle - the route description and photos in the reports should help - summary states, "Grassy hill path on climb up to Dunsinane, then rougher going on intermittent paths with some sections across deep heather." so some navigation would be needed higher up. Enjoy it.

Re: Carnoch Bridge

As already posted planning permission now granted but the Estate says it the new bridge won't be in place until the end of the year so anyone planning CWT etc this summer needs to plan accordingly.

Re: Guides for Skye Cuillins.

You've probably seen this list of Skye guides - my understanding is that Paddy McGuire is guiding next year but probably thats the last year, but there's plenty of others that are very good as well - have a great trip.

Re: Arran coastal way - streets/roads

Hi jan You'd need to read through each section's description on the Arran Coastal Way route info to see the amount of road walking - it doesn't dominate imo apart from the Lochranza to Imachar and Imachar to Blackwaterfoot sections, but even these I still found enjoyable with plenty of views - buses...

Walks on South Ronaldsay that are particularly good are Hunda and the East Coast Walk which takes in th...

Re: Scottish National Trail Through Hike

Its a great trail which builds up from easier to harder walking/navigation so you can get a handle for how you are progressing as time goes on and the route gets more remote. General info on the Scottish National Trail website and route description can be found there or here on WH - had quite a bit ...
