If you haven't done it already then would recommend the 5 Corbetts to the east of the A82. Great round with lots of climb. The right branch of the Y gully up the SW face of Being a Chaisteil is a great climb though very steep (best in the dry!). There is a record for the 8 Corbetts round Tyndrum, think Colin Donnelly has it. Love that area.

Woodland - find a source of funds and get it mapped for a Purple Thistle - ask Hilary Quick about funding sources, she's usually got a fairly good idea of where to hunt for cash.

Purple Thistle still needs some non-TD5 courses?

Maybe, maybe not. Build it and they'll come...

Could tape the non-TD5 courses - make it an extended obstacle course. I considered that last time. Volunteer time the main problem.

oh and I've done those corbetts as a round and do recommend them. A fair amount of steep climb was involved but there was a wonderful view of one the flanks of the hills (Cam creag's western side maybe?) It's full of gullies and was really quite something. My description is not doing it justice in the slightest.
