Re: Walking around town with ice axes

Not done this with an ice axe but I have carried a solitary golf club around Edinburgh on the odd occasion without any noticeable effect on others. Dare I suggest that the appearance and demeanour of said axe handler is more likely to attract the attention of the law's long arm rather than the axe i...

Re: Hello, trip planning, highlands

I have more than a little inside knowledge of Rabbies Tours... You should bear in mind that it takes most of a day to drive to Skye as part of a tour. However, the convenience of having transport there and back and booked accommodation (which can be very hard to find in summer on Skye) make it worth...

Re: Walking/ Outdoor movies

The White Tower is great fun and has Claude Rains in it, which is always a good thing.

Re: Bothy in front of Buachaille Etive Mor

Assuming you mean Jacksonville hut... I've never been inside but always thought it "belonged" to Creagh Dhu MC.

Re: Visitor Tax

However, I wouldn't trust Edinburgh Council to run a picnic. They can find millions of £s to waste on fireworks, trams, road narrowing schemes etc. but can't afford to collect garden waste or clean the streets. Trams are a waste of money? Traffic calming is a waste of money? Well, I was just offeri...

Re: Visitor Tax

I'm a bit torn with this one... As a resident of Edinburgh, I can see the attraction of a visitor tax and I don't think it would make much difference to the numbers of people coming. However, I don't agree with a flat rate tax - a percentage seems much fairer if there is to be one. However, I wouldn...

Re: Smoking in bothies

It's a bothy, not a health spa. I agree that it would be polite to ask (particularly if children are present) but some folk need to take a deep breath and relax a bit (maybe with a ciggie...). "They were literally being saturated by this guy's cigarette smoke" - clearly neither English nor...

Re: Fiscally Ridge - Cairngorms Query

It's certainly more enjoyable to stick to the crest. There is an exposed slab at one point, but it is mostly pretty easy.

You really don't.

Fun but fairly short scramble and easier than those you have mentioned.

Can't speak for Wales, but I've been to the Lakes a lot over the past 3-4 years and only ever had to pay for parking in towns. I don't get the "this is an English thing" at all.
