Re: The edge of nowhere

We were very lucky in that a friend booked Carmore Lodge (near the barn) underneath A'Mhaighdean and the estate took us in by boat, so what seemed very distant when we did Ben Lair from that end, suddenly became possible even though we are old I've stayed the night in the barn twice. Both times cyc...

Re: Mountain Rescue

I have called MRT, a few times, in Lakes (x2), Scotland (x2) and Peak (x1). Heck, I am even on an episode of BBC '999' with Patterdale MRT - the team at the centre of this incident. Hi Matt, how have you happened to be involved in so many mountain rescues? Is it just bad luck or some other reason. ...

Re: Long distance walks under new lockdown guidelines

The Lawers 7 on your own is awkward and not all that exciting and either involves a long road walk, a stashed bike, or following Dan Bailey's route in "Great Mountain Days in Scotland". Not sure i would drive 4 hours for that at the best of times :lol: You are forgetting one thing. The av...

Re: Long distance walks under new lockdown guidelines

Hello thought I would add my question on to this since its similar. I'm from Wick in the North Highlands and I want to climb the 7 Ben Lawers Munros in a day by myself for charity. Its a 4 hour drive but still in the Highlands so it's still my Local Authority area so should be ok. Is this still all...

Re: Long distance walks under new lockdown guidelines

I don't think the law, strictly interpreted, stops you from *walking* into the highlands, as long as you start within 5 miles of the LA boundary and walk back again, although it's not exactly within the spirit of the guidance ('you should travel no further than you need to reach a safe, non-crowded...

Re: Long distance walks under new lockdown guidelines

@gman, given the generalised prohibition on providing overnight accommodation, it seems likely that a court would rule that the recreation exemption didn't apply to wildcamping. As I said, there isn't any case law and unless someone is prosecuted and a judge provides an interpretation of this law w...

Re: Is it worth taking a chance?

Hopefully get a clearer picture of the lockdown easing on Tuesday. There have been hints that allowing travel is not going to be a big priority early on. It may go the same way as last time where travel is allowed to visit family but not for recreation. With a bit of luck the studies that have shown...

Re: Mountain Rescue

Lochaber did tell one guy who phoned for help because he was wet, that they wouldn't be coming for him and to make his own way down.

Re: Is it worth taking a chance?

Most accommodation providers are offering free cancellation. Only book your travel and accommodation if you can cancel it nearer the date. The vague message from the government yesterday was that nothing is going to be open for Easter. I would be quite surprised if you will be allowed to travel from...

Re: Mountain Rescue

When exactly was this golden era of self-reliant mountaineering experts on the hills? I know a few guys who hitchhiked to Arrochar and Glencoe in the 50s and 60s, they'll gladly tell you how clueless they were when they started out. Must have been before then? I totally agree but I think the differ...

Re: What tracks are these?

The best defined print seems to have 5 toes and a fairly pointed rear to the main pad - otter is a possibility (and would be the right sort of size). Good shout jmarkb. I have visited that area many times and never seen an otter but I know they are there. What I have seen a lot of around there is p...
