Hello from deep in the Highland Glen
« on: April 21, 2014, 07:59:58 AM »
Hi All
Living & deer stalking here in the Highlands, navigation is important to me & where better to keep up to date!
Thanks for pointing me at the forum Oakleaf.
I currently run MemoryMap on PC & PDA to help stop me getting lost & make a record of my movements (backed up with good ol' map & compass of course).

Hi Ian, this first welcome is one from Belgium...
Out of curiosity: should I understand "deer stalking" as in hunting, or as in observing?

Cheers,
Chris.

Hi Ian

And the second welcome to the forum is from another Ian. I hope you enjoy the forum - perhaps not as busy as some but certainly helpful, informative and convivial!

Och the Highlands Yorric: yesterday I was sat in the brilliant sunshine above st Mary's Loch, looking at the folds of hills surrounding them and remembering doing the same at Loch Ewe, just a wee while ago, and thinking 'I need to get back to the Highlands soon, and before the midge!' Anyway, welcome aboard Yorric:)

PS For the other Trig Point afictionados, the Trig point at the north western top of Loch Ewe, by the observation tower, is the most intact I have seen in the UK.

Thanks for the welcomes chaps! I look forward to participating & learning!
Bogyman - Deer stalking = Hunting  with rifle (for me) - Can also mean approaching to observe / photograph.
Andy - It really is all your fault!
Lyle - Here in Strathconon it's been a fantastic Easter weekend - still not a midge in sight although we expect them to arrive soon as the bats are more active this week.
