I can't understand why u wouldn't want adjustment at the bottom.


Because it's not necessary as far as I can see.

For most of us they are, I suspect what you want isn't a popular request or someone would have done it  ;)


Not really. I can't understand why u wouldn't want adjustment at the bottom. Even the British army ones have that. Lots do, but they are mostly expensive.


I will check out the craghoppers ones

Did I read or hear somewhere that loads of people are still paying their monthly contract and the phone comanies are not letting on when your phone has been paid for? As I'm a PAYG man, does part of a contract pay off the retail cost of your phone and then it becomes your personal property?

I saw this today. I had a scroll though and saw a photo of Greggs Hut which I have never seen in the dry. Whenever I've arrived its either been drizzle or raining!

That's a bit 'familiar' isn't it ?
I mean, you'll be calling beefy 'Mate' next  :D


Nice photos btw  O0  I like all of them but especially the 'wintry/autumnal' leaves in photo 4: great colours.

For a wet day alternative on Skye, you could visit the Talisker distillery in Carbost. Its on the way to the Cuillins.

On day 2, catch the sun setting behind Garbh Bheinn in Ardgour from the car park in Glencoe village.
You walk to the edge of Loch Leven, 50 yards from the car park opposite the Glencoe Inn.
Much better than your first choice. That's assuming its not raining!
Stop off in the village of Arisaig. Photo opportunity at the memorial to the Polish members of WW2 SOE
who trained in the area. (The whole area was a SOE training ground). Visit the museum for more info if
you are interested in that kind of history.
Have a great trip, and remember to book your accomm in Skye early, its always busy there!

Sparnel, thanks for this excellent info. I'm going to have a proper look into it. It's going to have to be pretty good though as the view from the top of Beinn a' Chr¨laiste looks to be absolutely spectacular and is where some of my favourite ever photos were taken! It's going to be a tough one to beat, but never say never!


:)


As for your comment about booking early for Skye, I'm hopeful that should all happen tonight, good call!

Craghoppers do waterproof over trousers with velcro fasteners at the bottom of the legs.
