Welcome to the Highland Slopers blog. Not much to say as yet but we will post some stuff when we remember.
Our patch covers some of the most beautiful and rugged scenery in the UK, shared only with eagles, Tornado jets, deer and sympathetic game keepers, stalkers and the occasional hill walker.
Luckily, in Scotland, we have the right to roam wherever we want so long as we are responsible and sensitive to other hill users, man and beast. The right to fly model gliders is enshrined in the landmark legislation, which makes Scotland a paradise for slope flying, even if the landing is often extremely rugged.
One day, however, it will all be reforested and our slopes will disappear. But for now, we enjoy some of the best flying in the country. Although more often than not it's blowing a gale, from the wrong direction, or raining.
