Re: Quick question

The guidance specifically states that you can travel through a level 3 area when going from a level 2 area to another level 2 area. It also says that you should take particular care if using public transport. The excerpt from the guidance is copied below. Permitted reasons for travel in Level 3 (Gl...

Quick question

Now that Glasgow has been placed in tighter (tier 3) restrictions again, does this mean that if you live in a tier 2 area and were travelling to another tier 2 area, but were reliant on public transport that went through Glasgow, or involved a change of train in Glasgow you can no longer do so? Hope...

Have you been on the medicinal rum again Caberfeidh? She said Austria, not Australia.

Re: Hiking the Cape Wrath (aka ‘Cape Rough’) Trail

Re: blisters & new boots needed?

I am also a firm believer in strong tape. The one that sticks to your feet, even if they are wet, and which you only take off when back home in the shower or three days later. I also have the impression that walking poles help. Maybe rather in helping to endure blisters than in preventing them, tho...

Re: Worth re-watching

Another vote for Edie and Muriel Grey's Munro Show. Also if you don't mind subtitles, then North Face is brilliant: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0844457/ I'm biased, but there's lots of great content on YouTube too. Check out Murray's (Scotland's Mountains) and Ray's (Renegade Scot) back catalogue....

Re: blisters & new boots needed?

Thanks to all for responses and insight on this. @ Marty_JG, I purchased that tape from Amazon. I have to say it appears completely different from stuff I bought from chemist. It certainly seems more robust, so I will be keen to trial it out when opportunity arises. @ Mal Grey. I would say that my b...

Re: blisters & new boots needed?

No mentions of zinc oxide tape yet? Tape up your hotspots preemptively. But do make sure you use a good quality tape. Yeah I overlooked that one. It has been something that has been on my radar also. I have seen it on some sites, but seems a bit pricey? Have you used it yourself? Would you recommen...

Basically it never stayed in place. Difficult to place over end of toes also, but mainly I just found it did not stay in place.

Re: blisters & new boots needed?

This is also a forum post I have been watching with interest. I would be delighted to see if anyone can come up with a definitive solution. One of my problems (I have many lol) is that my second toe is longer than my big toe. I know this is quite common with guys, so a lot of my blister issues are w...

Re: Spontaneous (and sodden) Speyside Way

I really enjoyed reading that :clap: :clap: . It sounds like a lovely walk. I may have to put it on my 'to do' list. Good luck for West Highland Way when you get to do it. It's also a beautiful walk, well serviced along the way with shops/restaurants/bars etc. I can only hope it will be same in post...

Re: Garmin 64sx - Maps Help Needed

As was said above, Talky Toaster. He was so helpful and understanding (I’m not the most tech savvy), and very reasonably priced. I honestly cannot give the guy anything other than genuine praise and gratitude.
