The Hillwalker's grand tour

32 pit-stop adventures, one summer: are you up for the ultimate road trip?

What if the next time you escape to the hills you never come back? Well, at least until you have a zillion miles and a bucket-list of adventures under your belt?

Island in the Lakes

St. Sunday Crag, floating between mountains, may have the best view in the Lake District. But why stop there? It might be the best hill full stop...

There’s Ullswater’s ruffled silver-blue sweep and Place Fell’s greening irregular hulk...


Snowdonian Secret Recipe

Tucked away in a quiet and overlooked corner of the Carneddau, this secluded slice of North Wales offers the perfect escape...

Nurturing. Protective. Cosseting. Not words you’d usually associate with mountains who tend to attract adjectives like brutal, wild, and menacing.

A Cairngorm Curve ball

With over 100 bothies hidden around the UK, the chances of the one you're heading to being full to the rafters are fairly low. Aren't they...?

A sandy beach to bed down on, running water on tap, an unrivalled view of the magnificent Devil’s Point, and space to breathe.


The big test: two-person tents

A simple question: which duo-sized tent would you spend your cash on for the fickle British climate? A wild camp in the Lake District is the setting for a scrap to find out...

The night that followed was windy with rainshowers, and colder than forecast, and at first light we all emerged and compared notes.
