I can imagine, I had enough trouble at train stations in Eastern Europe while I was Interrailing this summer. I'm pretty sure over the next few years I'll be doing plenty since I've no car and am wanting to get up to Scotland as much as possible since I've pretty much done everything worthwhile at home in the lakes and I've just started at Bangor Uni so will be out in the Welsh hills every week for the next 3/4 years but with only 15 Munros and 3 Corbetts done so far there's plenty available in Scotland to keep me happy.
Me and a friend are going up to Scotland in a few weeks and are thinking of doing Buachille Etive Mor and Aonach Eagach, does anyone know if it is possible to get there from Fort William by public transport.
Just wondering what people thought the best stuff for winter in scotland is ive a mountain equipment gore tex hard shell a few pairs of long johns and themal base layers. anyway what I want to know is what I should wear between these I was thinking of either using my dads Buffalo top (similar to the big face one) buying a special 6 shirt or using a layering system and buying a soft shell to go over a fleece just wondering what peoples experiences are with the big face top in winter conditions. The final query concerns a pair of standard Buffalo Salopettes I know they have some water resistant capabilities but will they need a pair of overtrousers and gaiters or will I be able to get away with using just gaiter?
