Depends I guess on the time of day. Late at night say 10pm on a Sunday, no problems.

If Glenshee won't be soaking up the Edinburgh snowboarders maybe we could install a Pret a Manger at Kildean Market and provide a catwalk in the carpark.

Get on Savills and buy a wee house

Get mommy and daddy to pay for a chopper

That's Edinburgh covered between the 2 of us, though your target audience is around 6%

Growwild,
Only a 22mm gap - surely Growwild could weld a wee gap like that? Job done.

Tis an option, but sadly one which would more than double the cost of a day on the hill.

In thinking about it more - given that we're talking the weekends, and trips which normally involve leaving Edinburgh in the wee small hours - I daresay that taking the 'detour' keeps the trips feasible - probably busier coming back down the road at night.
