Fort William to Bealach a’ Chaorainn

Wildcamps of 2016

I’ve not posted anything for the last 6 months or so, if I’m honest, I’ve not really had much to talk about and what I have done I’ve not felt

I walked the Affric Kintail Way over three days in late March, with my most excellent friend Chris (@PilgrimChris on Twitter and www.pilgrimchris.com). I’ve already posted some information on the

Cape Wrath Trail – Kit

This will be my first extended backpacking trip, so I thought it worthy of a discussion on the kit I will be taking with me. I’m leaving for the Affric

A New Found Enthusiasm

I think I may have mentioned elsewhere, that I’m planning on walking the Affric Kintail Way in a few weeks. It’s something I’m looking forward to immensely and the way

A Good Night’s Sleep

That’s something we all need at the best of times, but never more so than when you’re walking long distances over many days. Apart from the obvious need to feel

Our walking calendars finally aligned, allowing us to meet up for a weekend of walking, camping and catching up. After an incredible exchange of emails and GPX files, Matt (@hillplodder)

May #MicroAdventure

We (@PilgrimChris and I) didn’t really manage an April MicroAdventure – we did a camp site overnighter and walked 22 miles through the Yorkshire Dales, but in many ways we

March #MicroAdventure

Chris (www.pilgrimchris.com) and I headed to the hills again last weekend for another walk in our #MicroAdventure calendar. We had planned to do this trip in the last weekend of

At the back end of 2014 an article, publicised through Twitter, caught my eye – and it would seem, the eyes of many other walkers and backpackers. The article was

Kinder Winter White-out

I love walking in proper winter weather; not the usual winter weather we get in the UK – the drab, miserable, grey, wet and windy stuff that covers the country

Camping

A Light in the Darkness

I would probably describe myself as a 3-season backpacker. I much prefer the longer walking days of the months between April and September, the relatively better weather (pah!) and the
