    Do you still accept refugees from OM?

    Unsurprisingly my name is Beth, and I live in Nairn on the banks of the Moray Firth in the north east of Scotland. Previously lived on the edge of the Fens, till about this time last year. Not the biggest of moves I've heard about but big enough for us. Fantastic place. Lots of outdoor stuff to do. The Cairngorms is only an hour south!

    Plan is to do more walking - doing that. More biking, including bikepacking. And get back into backpacking which had been put to one side for a few years due to illness.

    Doubt I'll be a prolific poster, but I'll be around.

    Welcome Beth.

    An ex- Nairnite myself, still have family there and visit from time to time. Really is a great place to stay from an outdoors point of view. Friend of mine really into her Stand Up Paddle boarding and her pics make me jealous- my advantage is the Cairngorns are about 40 mins away from me now

    Yeah Nairn is good. Seen a few paddle boarders from the beach, one regular has a wee dug with her. We chose it for access to the beach, and the mountains, not to mention the harbour for when Hubs gets his boat. Oh and it's possibly the driest place in Scotland. Hardly any midges about last summer :)

    Hi Beth.
    Think we met on an OM meet once years ago. ( Black Sail?).
    Hope you get backpacking again sometime.

    Yes, indeed we did. In the middle of winter when the pipes kept freezing.
