The Isle of Skye is a great place MRF, you`ll enjoy it, good hillwalking to suit all, if you get the chance head to the Quiraing at the north end of the Trotternish Peninsula, an awesome landscape.

Me and the other three members of the Tufty family fancy having a crack at the hike to Preikestolen (Pulpit Rock) when we call into Stavanger next month. To be honest we wouldn't normally do that sort of thing but the great photos and stories on this thread have acted as inspiration. Anybody else on here been?

Ah the lovely Langdale. Worked at the NDG many moons ago, and the NT campsite, happy days.

See they were trying to have their own campsite in the field in front of the pub one year, they still doing that? Wasn't keen meesel, felt it dragged down the vibe of the place. You got a good day for it.

Nice Day on the Fells Yesterday.

Been let out of [strike]the padded cell[/strike] work for a couple of weeks, so the last few days spent hillwalking on the Isle of Arran, tomorrow to Islay to stagger round the distilleries then to Jura to crawl over the Paps, returning to the mainland and heading up to Torridon, perhaps with little excursion into Glen Coe on the way up, for a bit more strolling the hills.

Interesting Alan that I've mentioned on 2 occasions the negative effects of unrestricted tourism in parts of the Lakes and you've never got involved!

For someone who spends so much time on the fells it raises questions for me. Are you local? Have you retired and bought a place? Why don't you get upset with a 80% holiday home situation in your Homeland? I've tried to discuss Langdale with you before but ironically don't seem to share my passion and ony want to share your photos and Conservative Party views!

Mods, wrong post. Can you remove to Alan s hiking one please. Cheese

The New Dungeon Ghyll now use that field as a car park fiver a day plus but you get 10% off food and drink on production of your slip decent value.

A couple of Schnauzers did a runner into the fog Nr Haystacks, Buttermere not so long back and they were missing for a few days think the owner found them by the smell of cooking sausages somewhere near the point they ran off.

This one was a dogue du Bordeaux. Not sure where it was exactly but somewhere between ullswater and thirlmere area. Looked a big lad as well you'd have thought he would have been spotted before today but suppose its a bloody big area and not sure how far he'd gone from where he got lost.
