Re: Semi-invisible photos

Copied from the thread: I think it is because they are on your own website, which is not secure (https). Chrome has changed its settings so that non-secure content isn't shown by default as part of a secure webpage - because it can create security issues for viewers; I suspect this will eventually h...

Re: Stalking In Glen Lyon

This seems to confirm the signs, that responsible parking in spots mentioned should be OK:

Re: Stalking In Glen Lyon

That is what I had thought previously.

I was going by the signs actually on site yesterday. These seem to indicate that the clearway starts at the telephone exchange and ends before the layby.

Re: Stalking In Glen Lyon

To be clear, we don't think Chesthill's approach to stalking restrictions, or access generally, complies with the Scottish Outdoor Access Code, but having just been to check the situation around the parking, thought I should post a bit of info here (will also update the route guide). The clearway do...

Re: Railway Crossing at Dalwhinnie

Just for info here, OS map from 1882. The level crossing is on the line of the old Thieves' Road (marked in blue). The track through the underpass - to the south - didn't even have any connection with that route before the Loch Ericht dam was built, so it could not have been the original line of the...

Re: For the record -

Personal attacks are being posted here. Note that we do not allow personal attacks and insults on the forum, if repeated they will result in a ban, whoever makes them.

For the record, I eat my apple cores, which probably makes me a barbarian.

Re: Railway Crossing at Dalwhinnie

For more info: https://www.strathspey-herald.co.uk/news/anger-in-dalwhinnie-after-well-used-level-crossing-is-locked-246348/ Beside the hillwalking impact and loss of current and planned parking facilities, the loop walk is the only real short circular dog walk available locally. The article doesn't...

Re: Railway Crossing at Dalwhinnie

I'm aware of that pair of Corbetts - have been hoping the potential problem there stays under the radar! I understand that British Transport Police had said previously (with regards to the spate of similar cases a few years ago) that they didn't regard the public crossing railway lines at official p...

Re: Railway Crossing at Dalwhinnie

Update: Heard back from CNPA. If there was a core path across the line, the law is clear that access rights would apply. However, in this case the railway line is the local authority boundary (for access, as it's the Park boundary), and apparently the CNPA core path ends on the E side of the line an...

Re: Railway Crossing at Dalwhinnie

Just to let you know we're aware of this. This crossing is a Core Path (CNPA on one side, Highland Council on the other) - indeed the only circular core path the community has, and most likely a Right of Way as one of the most historic routes across Scotland. It's been raised with both access author...

Re: Marked/unmarked sections

No - the colours have always been to mark what you have and haven't ticked as having done. It used to only work on the page with all the routes, and was then added so you could do it on the individual stages as well. It was never anything to do with waymarking. If you had different colours it may ha...

Re: Image host

Safest option is to upload your pics to Walkhighlands itself - only way to guarantee not getting broken.

Quite alot of people are using Flickr, but you need a paid subscription to keep photos up longer term, and obviously if/when you stop the subscription your reports will break.

Re: Forum loading issue on Firefox

No, it's really not that. It is a distributed attack we've had a few times but I very much doubt it's targetted specifically at Walkhighlands; it is an attempt to get users' email addresses from forums like ours but only worked one address at a time and even then required alot of chance - so racked ...
