"Ordinance Survey 1:50,000 maps have been used throughout (though for Skye the 1:25,000 is recommended as being more appropriate)"
Strange - I can't think of anything less appropriate for Skye than the totally unusable OS 1:25,000!
The comment in the book is followed by "The Harvey's Super Walker 1;25,000 (and 1,12,500 enlargement) is perhaps the clearest of all."
Either way surely the 1:25,000 must be better than the 1:50,000?
A good % of the entries so far obviously haven't read the question properly!
Can we have another go then?
If you are one of those who have failed to read the instructions and now realise it - feel free to have another go.
Have you seen the OS 1:25,000?
A soiled paper hanky would be more helpful.
somtimes you drown in the details on the 1:25000 and its harder to make anything out.
I would scan in sections of the various maps so you can see for yourself - but the OS are notoriously litigious about such things, so get yourself down to Waterstones and have a look...
or go to http://getamap.ordnancesurvey.co.uk/getamap/frames.htm find Sgurr a' Ghreadaidh (search for Broadford and scroll) and zoom in...
Why don't you just hold it at arms length?
Never mind the map scale's, excellent book Dan.
One week to go to the closing date - 142 entries so far, with five prizes to go at those are fair odds.
Any more takers?
I made an incorrect entry (oo er missus!) and then read the question properly as you suggested and have now made a second, hopefully correct this time, entry.
If I had known you were going to be famous I would have gotten you to sign those Evolv's I got off you! ;)
Well done. A great looking effort.
Thanks for the compliment though!
did it take you till today to get the spelling right???
I will not be able to recommend your book, as I never buy books or win competitions. Good luck with the book.
I'm not surprised you never win - you haven't entered!
You are probably right, if, you included any quality of Scotlandís Mountainís ridges, I would have done them, no matter how easy/hard they were. I prefer the real thing rather than reading about it.
