Windy Hill, Isle of Bute, GM/SS-265

I’ve added some notes on my activation yesterday of Windy Hill on the Isle of Bute: Activation Notes

Lots of fun had! Here are some photos


HI Mark,

I presume the guid Scottish weather was too much fir ye the day! I had the handheld charged and ready for a climb up my local SOTA summit but saw the dreich view oot the windae and thought “Nah!”

I was busy yesterday so couldn’t come for the chase, pity though, as I can see Windy Hill for the shore here.

Better luck next time, maybe someone else will do Coraddie soon.

Greetings Neil

Today’s bugging out was mainly due to family commitments but to be fair Windy Hill at half the height and given the conditions under foot and the weather today made me think twice. Glad I did as I’m pretty sure it would have been fairly miserable!

I will keep all the info you kindly provided until next time. Personally I felt like I was on the wrong island - Arran just looks amazing through SOTA fuelled eyes!

Hi Mark

For anyone interested here is the chat I had on 2m with chasers:

Good to be told I’m a booming signal!
