Awesome. Having top-notch maps in popular outdoor areas is one of the
big drivers of enthusiasm behind OSM.

It's always "worth bothering" to improve OpenStreetMap, so long as
you're OK with the knowledge that at some point in the future someone
will improve your work even further! I was improving some loch
outlines earlier on today, and anyone who looks at them this afternoon
onwards will benefit - irrespective of what the OS datasets may or may
not contain in the future.
