The Adventure Show: South

Radio Scotland's "The Adventure Show" reaches its tendrils down south to the Galloway Hills. Talking about the differences in plant life, and the evocative names. Red squirrels holding out against the invader (website).

Then on to mountain biking.

Galloway Mountain Rescue Team - underestimating the hills until people come. The MRT runs guided walks in the Newton Stewart Walking Festival in May (link).

A good introduction to bouldering. Don't forget your toothbrushes.

Mave the Rave - long distance cyclist being interviewed (I'm sure the woman appeared on the tv show - I wonder if they've re-used the piece, or if this is a revisit). She loves her little tent ... I wonder what tent she uses?

Catamaran sailing on Loch Ken.

The weekend forecast analysed by Cameron - describes his recent helicopter trip around Ben Nevis. By coincidence, Claire MacLeod was also in a helicopter over the Ben at the same time..neither mentioned each other.

Woo hoo, the show finishes with an intro to the Southern Upland Way - and they'll be at the east end of it next week.

And 2 people signed the wild camping ePetition during the hour of the show - yup, I'm sad and was at my desk at the time.
