There's always some one out here, Gill. It's not only the pics but there's lots of useful walk reports which often give you ideas for places to go that you'd not usually think about. Keep checking them out. There's a lot more Walk reports for Scotland but those of us south of the border do our bit for the rest of the country by to contributing our walk reports. No area is deemed "out of bounds" so wherever you walk, be it the high hills or lower lying dales etc, your reports will be read with interest especially if accompanied by pictures. So enjoy the site and get those reports in.
