Re: Tobar na Slainte, Shandwick

Glad you enjoyed the walk and the beach - even if you didn't find the well. It is very small and not very obvious, but right at beach level on the end of the path, just yards from the table. Of course the rockfall could have temporarily hidden it (our visit was in January 2008) - but as you say some...

Re: Beinn Damh

Interesting - I did this walk in March 07 too - and our pictures show the same weather! Wonder if we may have met!

Funny road signs

On Raasay yesterday; first time I've actually taken the car across the ferry. Our sights were set on the north end - previously unknown territory for me. The road sign coming out of Inverarish was interesting... pole.jpg The road certainly seemed to run on and on for miles across an empty landscape....

Re: Great to be alive!!

Fantastic photos - and congragulations on getting up there! I must say although I've done the Munros round there (plus the Cobbler... whose summit I found a bit scary!) I've not really explored the area at all. Looking forward to getting down that way later in the year. It was a stunner of a day yes...

Re: Bad hill days

That's exactly what I always think is going to happen when I lob my boots across a river. Next time I'll be even more paranoid about it - probably throw my boots so far I'll lose them in the heather instead :lol:

Re: Skye Hiking in Winter - 5 days route

Oh dear - sorry you had such a rotten time - and ruined your camera. You won't like me telling you how beautiful the weather was all the previous week... see canisp's pictures from his ascent of Sgurr nan Gillean I think you had nice weather on the Tuesday but really wet after that - I was thinking ...

Re: walk with kids

Hi Adamak On Skye, there is quite a big range of easier walks on this website (see the Isle of Skye section; it's a great island for moderate walks though many of them are very boggy so bring suitable boots! The Suisnish - Boreraig circuit (Broadford area) is a bit of a classic amongst low level rou...

Re: Is there GPS that sends out your position

GPS phones seem to be appearing on the market currently, and the price is coming down. I presume these can send out your position.

Re: Blackwater Reservoir Kinlochleven.

When I did the walk, the gate at the top of the dam was locked. The width of the river coming out of the bottom of the dam is a bit fictional on the OS maps though - in normal weather almost all the water is diverted into the conduit, so unless the conduit is shut off or the water isn't put into it ...

Re: NEW FEATURE - Gaelic pronunciation

This feature is now all but complete; have added the pronunciations for the Cairngorms and Fort William areas over the last two days.

Hopefully now Bidean a'Choire Sheasgaich now makes sense to us all :D

Re: Excellent Site

Hi Bio-man Many thanks for your comments - and welcome to the site! For company on walks, clubs are often a good idea - we've a fairly (hopefully) comprehensive list for Scotland under the 'Info' option on the menu bar. If you are just looking to find someone to go for a few walks with more informal...

Cheers Simon - thanks for that!

We're in the Cairngorms this week - and enjoying fantastic weather; up Sgor Gaoith plus low level walks today. Lots more walks will be on the site for this area soon!

Re: Where to buy Withe Gas on Sky a Sunday

No problem. There is indeed some snow now on the hills of Skye. I hope the weather is better for camping when you arrive than it has been for the last couple of nights - really wild!
