Those who like to grab their rucksacks
and walking poles for a hike up a hill in March would benefit from the clocks being changed a month earlier, it has been argued.
Mountaineering Council of Scotland membership development officer Mike Dales has suggested in his blog there would be major benefits for outdoor enthusiasts if the clocks switched to summertime in late February and then went back again in early November.
"From a hillgoers point of view we could have longer evenings in March to enjoy our walk off the hill," he said.
Mr Dales said those who agreed should write to their MPs and MSPs.
The comments come after the government considered possible changes to the current system, such as permanently switching to British Summertime, a move opposed by Scots concerned about the dark mornings they would endure as a result.
The clocks are due to go forward this year on March 27th.
