This is my first post here because, sadly, I live on the South coast of England, but I've been using the OS mapping service regularly (in fact it was essential when planning this event), and information I've read here has been very handy, so thanks!!!

My brothers and I planned this walk (and bike ride) to celebrate and let people know about the UN World Peace Day on 21st September, and it was a huge success both as an adventure, and as a way to raise awareness.

I'm posting it as a link to my blog, but if that's not acceptable here please let me know, and I'll try to copy it over. I hope you enjoy it:

Thanks! We did see Scotland at it's most varied I think, which is no bad thing. In fact I'd almost say we enjoyed it MORE because of the bad weather; it'd have been nice to see some more views, but it felt far more like an expedition the way it was!!!
