Re: New covid restrictions

It made me wonder just as a matter of interest, what is the easiest way to find out what local authority area certain hills are in? The zoomed out Walkhighlands maps do show them as someone suggested. Another way that lets you get more detail is to use Google maps, and type in the local authority n...

Re: Travelling out with your local area (level 3)

This seems to contradict advice from the Scottish Government, to quote. "The new guidance states that if you live in a tier 3 or 4 area, you are permitted to travel upto 5 miles out of your local authority area in order to go for a walk or other form of outdoor exercise. Walks (and bike rides)...

Re: Balmoral Cairns

Hi Drew. We rewalked and updated this route last week, hence the new version. If you can still see the old version of the walk somewhere then please let us know where, as it shouldn't be available anywhere. Thanks for the help! :clap: At end of para 5, there is actually a right turn - you can see it...

We obviously won't in every case. But where posts are reported / we receive complaints, we'll act if there is clear evidence.

Trip reports and Coronavirus travel restrictions

As during lockdown, we will not allow trip reports to be posted which are in breach of the current Coronavirus travel restrictions. So please only post reports that comply with the restrictions for where you live.

Re: New covid restrictions

Following complaints both this time (and last time), from this point onwards we are putting in the same rules on Walkhighlands as before. There has been much discussion of the government guidance on coronavirus. We have no idea whether the guidance is correct and sensible; it's a hugely complex and ...

Re: Walk report of the month is back! £150 to win each month

Not a reply- start a new thread on the appropriate board (i.e. Scotland walk reports, Outside Scotland, or Long distance route)

Re: Beinn a' Chuallaich B847 – No Parking

Yet another update! The landowner is happy for people to park considerately on the verge. The passing place sign is new and was erected by Perthshire Council; previously the road was judged as wide enough to not need passing spaces but due to timber extraction, they changed this and marked up existi...

Re: Beinn a' Chuallaich B847 – No Parking

Looking at the OS and other sources, that section of road doesn't appear to be classed as 'narrow with passing places'.

Can't see any passing places at all on Google streetview photography. So perhaps something fishy going on.

Re: Beinn a' Chuallaich B847 – No Parking

Yes, there are restrictions on that road, but only from Calvine to Trinafour, which does not include this section.

Re: Beinn a' Chuallaich B847 – No Parking

As we understand it, this is not within the new clearway Perthshire restrictions.

That sign was not there a year ago, nor any passing place sign. The sign does not look professionally erected.

We have raised with Mountaineering Scotland, given the lack of parking in the area.

Re: A good death is its own reward.

I'm so sorry to hear how you feel. Obviously I don't know your circumstances, but if you love the hills, and can still get to them, then I think you still have something to live for. I think it would be good to talk this through with someone. If in Scotland, you could get in touch with Breathing Spa...

Re: How to request permission to use your data?

I'm afraid we wouldn't give permission for our route data to be used by another website, app or product. Walkhighlands is for personal use only.
