Is there a list anywhere of Scottish slopes? We recently moved house from S. Wales to Crieff and I'm missing the Bwlch and Mioe!

Hi Peter

welcome to Scotland. If you log into 

http.//kevin-newton.blogspot.com

you will see a link to most of the Scottish slope sites. 
I fly mostly on the Campsies (F3F) and there are a group of  F3F flyers  who use the slopes mainly in the Fife and Perth area for our competitions. 
Regards Dave

Thanks for the reply Dave, I fly f3f's and am trying to sort out my models after 4 yrs of no flying at all!, also have an old Vector 3 which is completed but unflown, I find it has a 35Meg Rx which shows how old it is. 

I have been to the campsies High car park - aproached through Fintry- is that where you fly? I can see from my Hill tracks map that there are many other car parks in the campsies which I have not visited yet.

I guess I will have to replace all my batteries first, most of them have dates of 2004 on them.!!

Regards Peter

Hi Peter 

This is where I fly in the Campsies. 
It takes me about 20min to walk up from the car park. The slope is good for southwesterly winds. The photo is facing west so the slope is to the left. 
I could only post the one photo.

regards Dave

Hi Peter,

Did you find any good slopes.  I to have just moved up, I live down the road from you in Glenalmond.  Maybe we should meet up and have a fly.  I also fly power and am looking for a power site.  Looks like I am blessed with a flying site at the end of my garden, good for small models...!!  who knew..?

Cheers

Kris

I’m surprised that none of the Scottish F3F boys have replied to this. There is still an active F3F league in Scotland, but its numbers have been dwindling, and I would think they would welcome new recruits with open arms. Contact peter g or george young on this forum.

Hi Peter & Kris

We fly F3F competitions on a regular basis, mostly around the lomond hills. A map of the slopes we fly regularly was made by Kevin Newton here - https://kevin-newton.blogspot.com/p/scottish-slopes.html

Our comps are very informal and you would be welcome to come along and join in. F3F is a very easy easy task (except in very light or very strong conditions), but difficult to do well. As a time trial contest, you can aim to beat your own times while learning, before aiming to beat others!

Our winter league calendar is just out, here - https://sites.google.com/site/sloperacing/calendar - if you would like to come along or are just interested to join the mailing list, drop me a PM and I will add you to the mailing list.

Peter
