(Sorry. Posted this in the pinned thread before noticing most folk create a thread of their own - mods feel free to approve/delete either one as appropriate) Hello Finally got round to registering - been an occasional lurker for a wee while. Looks like a great site. I've been an infrequent stravaiger for a bit over a decade - did a bit of hill-walking prior to that point. Work and young family mean that I usually only get away once or twice a year. Being based in Orkney means it takes best part of a day to get anywhere, and a day to get home. Still, manage to cram as much as I can into four-day trips. Spend a lot of my limited time away wandering about Sutherland. Use public transport for pretty much all my walking - which generally makes for more interesting trips. As likely to be found wandering in lonely corries as highest peaks. Still struggling to define the words 'luxury' + 'necessity'. Cheers!
