The Met Office is running a survey asking walkers how they use weather forecasts as part of a review of the Public Weather Service.
The aim of the consultation is to better understand and prioritise the needs of people who spend time in the hills and mountains of Scotland. There will be similar consultation in Wales, Northern Ireland and England.
The Mountaineering Council of Scotland is cooperating with the research and the survey can be found at their website. Anyone filling in the survey can enter a raffle to win a VIP tour of the Met Office’s headquarters in Exeter (possibly not that convenient for walkers based in Scotland!).
Walkhighlands provides links to the local area forecasts from the Met Office as well as the Mountain Weather Information Service, a midge forecast, the avalanche warning service and a great blog for the Fort William area with information on climbing conditions. To find this information click on Info on each of the area pages of Walkhighlands.
