    Apparently no area has been placed into either the highest (4) or lowest (0) Tier. Which means that the current 2 households outdoors limit will continue, unless some of the highlands gets into Tier 0 in the future

    The Scottish Tier system which will come into effect next week was debated in the Scottish Parliament yesterday. There is a clear summary here https://news.stv.tv/politics/at-a-glance-scotlands-new-coronavirus-levels-system
    In levels 1-4, the current restriction remains that outdoor meetings are limited to two households max six people. In level Zero this is eased to 15 people from 5 households. However it is not expected that any area will go straight into Level Zero at present.

    The Levels to which different parts of Scotland are assigned, are to be announced in the coming days. I think it is intended that these will be local government areas (ie instead of Health Boards).
    Highland Council area does not cover all the Highlands, NB. It is basically north from Glencoe.

    I have just heard it said on BBC TV that in Scotland car sharing by people from different households is to be made illegal.

    So trips north this winter look like being OPOC. (one person one car). Which will not be easy. Needs to be checked out by anyone planning such, I guess.

    I worried over the Bank Holiday that I might get emails from the Highlands saying “Oi, where is York MC ???”

    Fortunately Angela was able to check out several Munros from Crianlarich, whilst “our friend in the north” — Keith in Edinburgh – was bound for Fisherfield. Hoping for a less dramatic visit than last time near Shenavall.

    Menwhile Steve Murray took Beccy for some much-deserved luxury — counterbalanced by doing her first Munros over the Easains.

    PS The less questions to Mr Green, Tenko, or myself about a night of 20-odd at Corrour Station bunkhouse, and doing the Easains with a headache competition, the better.
