Wanderer, come home!
Cra, you’re tilting at windmills. Create an organisation for the environment and you create a vested interest. Here in Scotland the National Parks act for development not protection. Even my own wee local hills, the Pentlands have the Rangers, a Stalinist organisation which has created some of the most useless paths known to man. The hills are rugged little devils thankfully so they’re resisting most of the damage.

As each enormity becomes sanctified by time, you find a generation that says “It’s always been there.” Remember the Unna controversy at the bridge into Coire Gabhail in Glencoe. I still think it shouldn’t be there but there’d be outcry from walkers if it went. I was reading WH Murray recently and he was agonising about the intrusive new Glencoe road that desecrates Rannoch Moor. I was thinking, well that’s always been there. Turns out it’s a new-fangled development from the 1930s and we should really be travelling up the West Highland Way.

I’m not sure you’ve got any option but direct action possibly setting the explosives-equipped vandals you’ve previously mentioned against the officially-sponsored ones. Your real problem is you’re walking in a small crowded island. Why not come back home, where you’ve the option of getting away to the next glen and total solitude. I think most of your crimes are forgotten and the wanted posters are yellow and your picture unrecognisable.

Anglesey Mountain: Great Carlingford views from a so-so top
Collaborative entry Last edit by: Colin Murphy a week ago.
There is enough space to park one car at 100 167, just on the edge of a wood around a sharp u-bend. Proceed north for 100m before turning NE up a gentle slope, although the terrain is treacherous ...
