Walker, canoeist, sailer, glider pilot, rock climber and father of 3.

Middle son of a polar explorer, and grew up in the wilds of Orkney and the Falklands - so take after my father in outdoors pursuits.

Happy in the middle of mountains or forests in a tent :-)

comment What gear for sleeping in wild camping in western Scotland in May?
I took the family camping on Skye the week before last, and it was around 20-22°C every day. At nights I was sleeping in a pair of shorts with no sleeping bag as it just wasn't cool enough to do anything else - it stayed above 10°C at night. Wish it had cooled a bit more :-)

If they have a slot, and one end is fixed, pull a loop through the slot and put this loop over your peg.

comment When do I need a permit to go into nature?
In Scotland, the law of Trespass doesn't exactly exist, so aside from a few specifics, you can hike and camp overnight in most of the countryside.
