Afternoon All
Can anybody tell me who I need to contact for permission to activate Arthurs Seat in Edinburgh please? I can see it from my Hotel window!

Cheers

Is permission still required for this summit? Even using a backpack antenna and HT?

Ok thanks Andy I will give them a ring nearer the time and see what they say. I see there has been an activation recently so it looks likely,

I managed to gain permission back in October although with some difficulty,had tried the phone numbers on historic Scotland website but nobody knew who was responsible,the head ranger was hard to get hold off despite even gaining his mobile number.Turned up on the day of activation and met one of the rangers on site who kindly made a few requests via two way radio and was given the green light to activate which was good enough for me.Always better to get permission in writing if time allows.

Great wee hill to activate as long as you can escape the tourists.
Good luck!

Took your advice Graeme and fired off an email just now, as its only 4 weeks til the intended activation, so watch this space for any developments
