The dominance of Apps,


social media,

commercialisation of communal and social activities

that have cultivated a culture of casual approach

and mannerism of indifference.

its uncool to have manners;

shake hands, stand up to greet or offer what you are having. its suspicious or needy to express appreciation and gratitude.

a lot of hill walking in Scotland

and chatting with strangers is a natural part of it

and also a very useful source of information.

Sometimes it's just gasping a quick greeting

on a steep ascent,

other times it's swapping tips

and recommendations on routes/hills.

Particularly useful in bad winter weather

when things can be a little sketchy.

You also meet some very funny and interesting people.
