More daylight. Grand Making the most of Scotland’s extra hours of daylight might mean hiking, riding, bird watching, climbing or just finding somewhere solitary to kick-back. It might mean sleeping out under dimly lit night skies with little more than a bivvy bag and your instinct for adventure. All that matters is getting out. Out of your comfort zone. Out of the ordinary. Out of town. Just out.

Mountains don’t have to measure 3,000 feet to be on your tick list

4


There’s no doubt that Munro bagging is big. Sometimes it seems that if you’re not in clan Munro, no-one is going to dance with you at the Scottish mountain ceilidh. Twenty years ago, ticking boxes on the Munro chart was a little bit of a guilty secret, but now you’re as likely to be asked “how many have you got to go?” as “where are you from?”

Of course, what’s brilliant about the Munro tick list is that tromping your way over 282 summits will take you over mountains and glens that would have been unlikely to catch your eye if they were under 3,000 feet. And when all the Munros are in the bag you could well find that you have missed a few of the neighbouring 227 tops. Another lifetime of wild mountain

walking, or a year or so for the properly obsessed. But what about those who aren’t keen on lists or good with numbers? It’s not a problem really – they are left with some of the world’s most beautiful mountains, that are largely overlooked and often deserted.

Looking towards Ben Lomond. 5


When a few extra feet don’t make a mountain

It’s said that Ben Arthur looks like a cobbler bending over his last. What is inarguable, despite falling one hundred feet short of being a Munro, is that it’s one of Scotland’s most beautiful and recognisable mountains. And it inspired Scotland’s first climbing club in 1866 – the Cobbler Club. It’s also possible that The Cobbler has the strange accolade of being the mountain that most people have almost got to the top of. Following a steep but easy ascent, the last few feet suddenly get serious; ‘threading the needle’ means crawling through a hole in the rock and out onto a sloping exposed ledge. It needs a cool head and preferably some scrambling experience, especially in the wet. You will be rewarded with views over the Arrochar Alps and beyond, and make no mistake, this is a proper Scottish mountain that stays with you long after the day you climb it.

The summit of The Cobbler. 6

Welcome to the Fair Isle’s Lighthouse Keeper’s Golf Course

Most visitors to Britain’s most remote, inhabited island come to see the procession of rare migrating birds that use Fair Isle as a mid-point rest station on their annual migration. But it would be wrong to overlook what must be one of the most unlikely visitor attractions in the world – the Lighthouse Keeper’s golf course. Here, greens are kept tidy by the weather and the sheep. Atlantic gales sweep uninterrupted across this tiny outcrop and sea mists can cling to the island for days. The advice is, “bring plenty of spare balls and wrap up warm”. 12

Although lacking usual clubhouse facilities, a round of golf on Britain’s most remote and adventurous course does come with wild sea air filled with the cries of gulls, crashing waves, howling Atlantic winds and a heady sense of freedom that folk from the mainland might find intoxicating. Getting to Fair Isle is an adventure in itself, but experiencing some of Britain’s longest days on this wild and craggy outcrop of Shetland coastline is an unforgettable experience.


65 people, 1,200 sheep, 20,000 puffins, 1 golf course.

Serious outdoor clothing doesn’t need to look like serious outdoor clothing. And the less zips, toggles, bells and whistles there are, the more versatile it is. So your hillwalking gear can also be your travel gear, work gear and golf gear. And because it’s Rohan it is always light, highly packable, quick drying and easy to care for. Protection disguised as great looking clothing.

The Pathway Cardi is a soft, warm fleece that doesn’t make you look like you’re dressed for a fight with nature. It offers all the good looks and cosy comfort of a traditional woollen cardi, but because it’s made from a sophisticated polyester fleece, its technical performance is, quite simply in a different league. It’s light, packable, breathable and incredibly comfortable for active use. And unlike favourite cardis of the past, it won’t lose its shape after years of wearing and washing, so it’s quite safe to get attached to it.

Golden moments with the Highland eagles

There’s nothing more thrilling for a wildlife photographer than staring down the barrel at a sexy bird of prey. Our two native eagles – golden and white-tailed – are rare, secretive and shy, making them impossibly difficult to photograph at close quarters. White-tailed, or ‘sea’ eagles can be tempted close to boats using bait in the form of dead fish, but golden eagles are a different challenge altogether. I’ve photographed both

16

species in the wild and ‘goldies’ mustn’t see you enter or leave your hide. This involves using the cover of darkness and even in winter, means a 12-hour session in a cold, cramped box (just think coffin) with perhaps just a glimpse of a passing eagle as reward. I’ve got single shots of wild golden eagles that have taken 5 days to secure. It’s not for the impatient! Of course there is another way. Many wildlife photographers are unwilling

or unable to invest this much time, so they use falconry birds, like the one shown here. With a piece of rabbit placed on a tree stump, I was able to use a wide-angle lens and capture this young female against the splendour of a Highland backdrop. Not quite the adrenaline rush of a wild encounter but not too shabby!


people | experience | gear

Based in the heart of Scotland’s Cairngorms National Park, Peter Cairns is an award-winning nature photographer and writer. His new book is available now. northshots.com

Where to see eagles Historically, both golden and sea eagles were widely distributed across the UK, but today you need to get yourself to Scotland. Mull and Skye are great places for close-up encounters with sea eagles, where boat trips can be taken throughout the summer. These islands are also hotspots for golden eagles, although these enigmatic birds can be found across much of Scotland (Strathdearn in the Cairngorms is another favourite spot). Pick a fine, breezy day with a good view of the surrounding hills and watch for the strong, almost arrogant flight of a goldie. Beware confusion with common buzzards – both are similar in shape but golden eagles are much bigger and stronger flyers. If you see a large brown raptor on a roadside post, it’s a buzzard unfortunately!

720 square miles of solace Welcome to Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park

From the rolling lowlands of the south to the northern peaks, there is a magic and wildness to this landscape. The lochs, rivers, woodlands and mountains of this National Park offer rare beauty that is relatively easy to access. The park is shared by otters, capercaillie, ospreys, native roe deer and red squirrels, yet is only an hour from around 50% of Scotland’s population. Scotland has four hours more daylight than London in summer, so June and July are favourite times to visit. August brings the purples of Highland heather, September and October the reds from the dramatic rowan and birch, and winter the stillness of the heavy snows.

A big thAnk you A huge thank you to everyone who donated to Gift Your Gear in March. The response, once again was overwhelming.

Thousands of fleeces, walking trousers, waterproof jackets, rucksacks, hats and gloves have found new homes this year but we’re collecting again soon.

When you first discover wild places, something very special happens. And the moment you get hooked on the mountains is especially magical. However, the cost of decent outdoor kit can be a barrier. To solve this, Rohan have been working with Gift Your Gear, set up by Rohan co-founder Sarah Howcroft that allows you to breathe new life into your old gear.

Possible beneficiaries should take a look at giftyourgear.com to see what the criteria is and then e-mail Sarah Howcroft at info@giftyourgear.com

Gift Your Gear gets functional kit you no longer use into the hands of people that need it most, by working with youth groups, charities and community organisations. To be part of it you just need to bring your unwanted clothing, boots or accessories into your local Rohan store when the scheme next runs in the autumn.

Keep your eye on rohantime.com for exact dates in autumn – it’s a perfect chance to re-organise your wardrobe whilst helping others discover and enjoy the great outdoors. And don’t forget, you can donate any brand of outdoor kit. It would also be great to get as much children’s gear as possible, so don’t restrict the big clear-out to your own wardrobe!

25% EXTRA FREE If you’ve ever wanted to sit down on a wet rock to eat your butties or cursed at the rain running down your jacket onto your thighs when you’re walking, you may have wondered why so many waterproof jackets are cut so short. The answer is fashion. They do look great – sporty, lightweight and cut down. Perfect if you need easy access to your climbing rack that hangs from your waist harness.

Men’s Hilltop Jacket Colours: Asphalt, Indian Ink Code: 03502

But not so good for the rest of us, that 99% of jackets are designed around an activity that less than 1% of us do. The Hilltop is a real waterproof jacket for real walkers who don’t want half measures and know that a longer jacket dramatically cuts the number of times that you need to hip hop your way into overtrousers. We don’t care if short jackets are all the rage this year, we care if they work.

Women’s Hilltop Jacket Colours: Woad Blue shown, Dark Fig Code: 03506
