Deer stalking season ends

The Scottish stag stalking season has now come to an end. This year, in addition to the Hillphones recorded message system, a new website was trialled aimed at giving walkers and climbers up to date access information.

If you used the site, called Heading for the Scottish Hills, and run by Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH), it would be really helpful if you could provide any feedback which will be used to improve the website. The Mountaineering Council of Scotland, which was a partner in the trial, has expressed disappointment that many estates did not post detailed stalking and access information, providing a contact phone number instead. If you phoned an estate or used the Hillphones system instead of the new website, SNH, would like your feedback.

The feedback survey can be found at the trial deer stalking website here.
