Happy Christmas to all from Walkhighlands – hope its a good one!
We also wanted to say a big thank you to all the users of Walkhighlands and those who have contributed to the site, added trip reports and photos, or emailed us with information, suggestions and encouragement. We are always interested to hear how you use Walkhighlands and what we can do to improve the site, so keep your ideas rolling in.
The last year has been great with over 960 walks now on the site and coverage expanded to include Aberdeenshire, Angus, Fife, Moray, the Isle of Eigg, Sutherland, Caithness and some of the Long Distance Trails. We made 1:25,000 OS Explorer mapping free for every walk. We now have a Find a Walk search feature to help you find the walk you want, and have recently added the Scottish Marilyns for those who like to bag peaks. Walkhighlands was also declared overall winner at the Herald’s Digitial Business Awards.
During the next year we intend to expand coverage to the rest of Scotland, add new mapping features, and include driving instructions and Sat Nav co-ordinates to help you find the start of each walk. No doubt you will come up with a lot of other ideas and as always we’ll try and response.
In the meantime have a great Christmas and New Year – Helen and Paul, Walkhighlands.
