Scotland = next week.


From 22 Feb 2019, (friday) I should be activating in Northern Scotland as MM6GYU/P. Strictly Morse of course.

Its going to be a mix of mountaineering & SOTA depending on where the mood takes me and the weather. So I hope to do interesting summits that never really appealed to me from a mountaineering point of view - like Sullivan perhaps to a few lessor visited peaks or perhaps just some interesting 10 pointers.

I was going to take my x-country skis but I think thats too optimistic. :slight_smile:

Cars packed and an 8 hour drive awaits in the morning!

Sort of Mix 'n Match.


Named after the famous talk-show host.


You can ask the database to show you all the unactivated GM/NS summits. Or show them in oldest activation first.

Hope the WX is good for you. Normally it puts on extra wetness when we have visitors!


Doesn’t it just!

I guess that Sullivan is Suilven, that is in a truly magical area. If I’m right, don’t miss Stac Pollaidh (Stack Polly), not very high, not a Munro, but an unmissable experience that you will remember when higher but blander summits fade from memory!

Good luck.



Enjoy the trip, and see you when you get back.



I suspect the Suilven error was the spellchecker overruling. The curse of the modern machine.

Paul G4MD and myself will be activating several GM/SS summits on 24th, 25th and 26th, so there will probably be a particularly inclement period at that time. We will going suitably prepared, though chasers should expect some irregular keying from me during wet periods. :grinning:
