Hi SDillmore! As I generally walk alone, so that I can get away from the rat race, I take my four legged friends with me for security and peace of mind. Having an agricultural background I have witnessed what a pack of dogs can do to a flock of sheep, which were my own stock, so I have a strict personal code! In forestry and where there are no little people, or wildlife, my dogs are loose but with easily catchable restraints (harnasses) just in case the situation changes! On moorland, my dogs are leashed as there are sometimes sheep grazing, if I see a large amount of sheep I don't go near them I go another route which can be just as enjoyable!! Where a farmer has put up a notice that they have stock on the land and would prefer that dogs are not permitted, I will NOT enter that land ..... another day another time without my dogs! During the early months of the year sheep are quite often expecting, and as such should definitely not be bothered by dogs leashed or unleashed, as they can abort or even worse! Personally if you use your common sense, and say to yourself "if those were my sheep........" you'll be fine! One other thing, if you see a sheep upside down and unable to right itself at this time of year PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE help the animal to right itself, as it's easy prey!

IainT a week ago.
The quartzite slabs on the NE flank of Binn Mhairg make a good scramble, one of the best in the Maum Turks. They are reachable by traversing round from the Mam Ean track, pathless but largely gras...
