If you want more walks you can get to by bus Stretch, the bus from St Andrews to Stirling runs right through all the little towns at the foot of the Ochils. Using the bus you can head up from one and come down to another.

I suppose this is a little bit impractical from St Andrews as you are a few miles from the station, but it may be doable. Especially if you have a bike and use bothies such as the Tarff Hotel, Culra, the one in Glen Banchor or the one in Glen Feshie.

If you don't mind coming into Dundee there are plenty of clubs that do regular trips out of Dundee including NCR club, one out of the Bank Bar on Union St, Ancrum Club and of course the Dundee Uni Rucksack club who I am sure would take on a student from another university.

Maybe, maybe not. When I was a member, I remember them getting distinctly sniffy about allowing people from Abertay Uni in. Mind you, numbers seem to be well down in the more recent years, so they may reconsider!

Also on a separate point, Maspie Den is nice but has really lost some of its mystique and charm since the forest has been cut down
As that started from 'Falkland', you could have called your report 'Argy-bargying in the Falklands' Look a nice pair of hills - surprised to see no snow at all!
