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 from October to March, but the rare Alpine winter days that are calm, clear and biting cold. We get so...

Couple of Skye Photos

Just wanted to upload a couple of photos I took while on Skye, not great quality as they were taken with my phone.   This is the croft we were staying in.   A photo from Rubha Hunish looking out towards Isle of Lewis. Posted using the WordPress app on...

Lakeland Fells Map

A while ago I spent some time creating a wall map of the Lakeland Fells. I wanted something I could hang on the wall, something that would help me track my progress through all the Lake District hill lists and above all, something that looked good. In short, something that...

A Photo Challenge

I’m off to Skye in a couple of weeks. A long awaited return to one of my most favourite places anywhere in the UK. My brother and I have rented a small croft on the northern end of the island, on the Trotternish peninsular. We have no plans other than...

The continuing saga of my knees

I’ve not mentioned my knees for a while, so I thought it was about time to address that. As previous posts and some tweets will have explained I’ve been suffering with a particularly painful left knee. It’s been wrong for a couple of years but the pain has been manageable,...

Coast to Coast 2011 – Reloaded

Another long distance path has received the new look and feel update – this time it’s the Coast to Coast walk I did in 2011. This is my backwards C2C, going from East to West and is unashamedly quite photo-heavy. You can see the whole journal here: Coast to Coast...

A Knee Update

It looks like I finished walking the Pennine Way just in time. It has been heavily mentioned on here already that I was updating the Trailblazer guide book for the Pennine Way and I walked the final section in April, with Chris Pilgrim. I really struggled with fitness on the...

Cotswold Way

I walked the Cotswold Way in 2012, in sections, with a friend I used to work with. I’ve finally got round to putting the walk reports together into a series, showing our progress along the path. It’s not a true walking journal as I would normally create for one of...

Ridgeway National Trail

I walked the Ridgeway back in 2010, in sections, with a good friend from work. This isn’t a walking journal as my previous long distance paths have been, but it’s a collection of the day walk reports that I created for each leg. As such it has some information about...

Skye Trail – reloaded

I’m still injured, so I’m still filling my weekends by revamping my long distance walk journals with new photos and new layouts, which should hopefully enhance the reading experience. The Skye Trail from 2012 is the latest one to have magic wand waved over it and you can read about...

West Highland Way – reloaded

The West Highland Way and Great Glen Way journals are the latest walk reports to receive the new look and update. These walks were done back to back in 2008, taking me from Glasgow to Inverness, via the summit of Ben Nevis. You can read them as I walked them,...

As part of the on-going plan to revamp all my long distance walk journals; the Pennine Way journal from 2010 has just been updated with more photos. You can read it here: Pennine Way Journal 2010
