Re: Great Glen Way planning

You can have the trailblazer key sent out to you in the post. At least you could previously, don’t know if this has changed in Covid times.

Re: To corrour bothy

It should be easy enough to measure the distance with a map using your preferred method (piece of string works well), As to time about 6-8 hours sounds not too far off depending on how fit you are and how much you are carrying. I recently couldn't find string in my toolbox and then ended up using s...

Re: The Moray Coast Trail - A Challenge

I really enjoyed reading that. I have a friend who has done the Lochalsh Dirty 30 numerous times. My initial thoughts were I could never do something like that. So during April I challenged myself, I managed 31.09 miles, no problems or issues. 2 weeks later I tried again (hoping to push to 35) but ...

Re: Midges mid June Scotland this year

This is an interesting thread. Would be interesting to see if someone came up with a definitive solution :lol: :lol: On that note, did anyone see the program on BBC Scotland Saturday night (name escapes me) about them? Certainly an interesting program, but after it both the wife and I were feeling a...

Re: Quick question

I'm pretty sure the consensus is right. You are allowed to travel from any level 2 area to any other level 2 area, even if it requires you to pass through a level 3 area. If travelling by public transport, it must therefore be legal to break your journey for connection purposes (e.g. changing train...

Re: Quick question

Yes I agree fine to travel through Glasgow. The rules are making even less sense now and not following the data. There are places in Scotland in worse shape than Moray but they don't wish to put them in level 3 like Moray. Also folk can now travel from covid hotspots in England with more cases than...
