Nah, it's good to know that it's possible.  Was imagining all kinds of restrictions and byelaws at Glen Nevis, obviously there aren't any :)

Forecast for Fort William is hail showers on Thursday and snow on the tops.  I'm going up on Friday :rolleyes:

Camp set up under the buachaille etive mor at the corner of glencoe and glen etive. All splendid so far, and enough signal to post this, so even better.  Are there bears in scotland?

Fire wasn't mine, but I thought it improved the picture :lol:  Next time I'll be brave enough to venture away from the road, not that the Glen Etive road is a particularly busy one.  Felt better being next to the car first time, though :)

Had a splendid time, can't wait to do it again.  Best bath I've ever had when I got home :)

Out like a light, mate :)  Started raining at about 2AM which woke me up, but it was such a hypnotic noise that I went straight back to sleep again :)

i think the only place you're allowed to camp is at kielder castle and the bit on the lake side where only the scouts are allowed, just up beyond leaplish.
Bullshitters misrepresent themselves to their audience not as liars do, that is, by deliberately making false claims about what is true. In fact, bullshit need not be untrue at all.

Rather, bullshitters seek to convey a certain impression of themselves without being concerned about whether anything at all is true. They quietly change the rules governing their end of the conversation so that claims about truth and falsity are irrelevant.

But shirley kielder forest is so massive that you could wild camp quite easily without anyone seeing you, no?

definitly, same goes for most of the northumberland national park, especially if you leave it till late and pack up early. i'd be more worried about where i'd left the car. if it was somewhere like barrowburn there'd be every chance of a search party being sent out looking on the basis of the car and i wouldn't want to crreate all that hassle.
