Re: Camping near Giorra dam (Loch an Daimh)

Hi Minna
I can see no reason not to be able to camp in that area, if you are following the Outdoor Access Code, there don't appear to be any inhabited buildings, so stay a reasonable distance from the road and you'll be fine. There certainly looks to be some nice spots, enjoy!
Fingers crossed for May 🤞🤞🤞

Re: Camping near Giorra dam (Loch an Daimh)

Thanks for the encouragement, Louise!

And yes, fingers and toes and everything else crossed indeed!

Dash4it.co.us used to deliver OS maps to the US when I lived there. Check them out!

Thanks for the tip, Julie! I've contacted them and asked about shipping to Finland.

Darn. No shipping to Finland with them either. I guess I'll just have to with printed waterproof A4 maps and OS maps app then.

It seems expensive but this seller lists shipping to Finland... https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/finchett1942/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_ipg=&_from=

Thanks Brian, but they only seem to have Explorer maps, instead of Landrangers. I'm probably going to go without the big paper maps this time and bring only the printed versions of my route, but try to include a larger area in them in case I need to re-route heavily. I also have all the maps downloaded on my phone.
