Bidean nam BianEdit

Looking at Bidean nam Bian, it seems that Category:The Three Sisters, Glencoe more properly belongs within Category:Bidean nam Bian. Those being the collective name for three of the peaks on this mountain. -- Colin (talk) 22:13, 15 November 2015 (UTC)

It doesn't seen clear to me, and I intend to come back to it- if you look at The Three Sisters and Bidean nam Bian, there apppears to be an inconsistency between peaks and corries. I'm about to finish Category:Beinn Bhreac at leats as far as Highland is concerned, so I'll take another look at it then. Cheers. Rodhullandemu (talk) 22:23, 15 November 2015 (UTC)
"The highest peak is the great multi-summited massif of Bidean nam Bian whose three great buttresses rise impressively above the road and are known as the 'Three Sisters'"[1]. "the reigning peak of the Glen or the district [is] the peak of Bidean nam Bian; whose main summit is hidden above and behind its more famous outliers, three great truncated spurs known as ‘The Three Sisters of Glencoe’.[2]. Looking at the OS map (available via Bing Maps old version, not the "new" one), there are three lesser peaks or "buttresses" labelled "The Three Sisters" and only two corries. I'd tend to go with the OS map. -- Colin (talk) 22:45, 15 November 2015 (UTC)
OK, please feel free to fix it. Cheers. Rodhullandemu (talk) 22:52, 15 November 2015 (UTC)


Is there any particular reason Category:Cochno Loch, Category:Carman Reservoir, and Category:Burncrooks Reservoir are children of Category:Fisheries? As you can see, no other similar bodies of water are categorized there. - Jmabel ! talk 05:50, 30 November 2015 (UTC)

Not yet, but then I haven't finished curating all of Scotland yet. Those lochs may not be officially designated as fisheries, but they are venues for recreational fishing. If you know a more appropriate category, please feel free to amend. Cheers. Rodhullandemu (talk) 15:26, 30 November 2015 (UTC)
Almost every body of water in the world is at times a fishery. But if you look at the contents of the category, it is almost entirely works on Fisheries Science or international fisheries management. As far as I can tell, it's sort of like if you put Category:Rubber chickens in Category:Physics because rubber chickens are physical objects. - Jmabel ! talk 17:37, 30 November 2015 (UTC)
On that basis I think Category:Fisheries should not have been made a subcat of Category:Recreational fishing, and I've moved the three above to Category:Angling in Scotland. Cheers. Rodhullandemu (talk) 17:44, 30 November 2015 (UTC)
Much better, on all counts. - Jmabel ! talk 22:47, 30 November 2015 (UTC)
