What's New - recent changes to this website
 General advice/courtesy:
  • Plan your route so that, where possible, you avoid going close to other's properties
  • If there is a debate about access, perhaps a graceful and prompt retreat would be the best course
  • When recording ascents think carefully about what you record
  • Remember some summits may be inaccessible, even if on a list
