Who knows. Scottish MountainViews?
A recent visit to accompany an Irish hillwalker finishing her Munros on Beinn Narnain refreshed my memories of Scottish hills, which I have visited on various trips in the past. Then there was the reacquaintance with haggis which I like and Scottish sausages (square things, clearly an acquired taste) which I didn't.
I too have memories of Kinlochewe Hotel which I stayed in on two different holidays. Its location is great and I remember walking out of the hotel and up Slioch. The owner and his wife were struggling to make it pay at the time and seemed to work 16 hours a day. Don't remember any particular difficulty meeting my eye. Could be of course that he wouldn't meet the eye of only some patrons.

So no, I personally have no particular difficulty with discussion of things Scottish. Actually my mother was Scottish. My wife likes Andy Murray, surely another credential. Anyway what people want to discuss is largely up to them.

It could be an interesting idea to include the Munros and perhaps one of the metric summit lists from Scotland or other parts of Britain on the site. Would you use the site to Discover Scottish hills in the way that people discover Irish ones. Would you Summitteer like people do here?

I followed Track #2611, which starts at Slievethoul/Saggart Hill, and then heads south to Cupidstown Hill. No problem with Saggart Hill. However, the access into Cupidstown Wood at O 009 211 is ve...

This track is corrupted. It appears to be two separate tracks that are joined. Saggart Hill and Cupidstown Hill are one track; Lugnagun is another track that is a significant distance away. The tr...

Foilclogh is quite a central hill towards the Southern half of the Iveragh peninsula so the views at the top are fantastic. The summit itself however is a bland elevated hump and the hike up is no...

Nothing to add on the directions as its very straight forward. The weather turned just as we drove to the summit so we didn't even get to do the short looped walk.
