A walk in the park – part one

Going for a walk along the river today – I will post as I go! This is a five min walk from the river!

The Brack

Seeing as how it was such a nice day weather wise, my wife and I decided to choose a walk out of the Pathfinder book we had bought last year.

The walks are split up into three sections – easy, medium and hard. I chose one of the hard ones a 10 mile [...]

Lake District

Camping!!

So I and my lovely assistant/fiancé decided to get away for a night at the weekend. As it was lovely on Saturday we got in the car and belted up to a little Glen we know just before Glen coe. We pitched our tent, opened up the red wine, I had a cigar and then [...]

Lovely, just lovely!!

So I went hillwalking at the weekend. Set out early and walked up Ben Lomond. Ben Lomond is the most southerly Munro and, at 3195ft towers over Loch Lomond We and it seemed like lots of people were all kitted out in walking gear and jumpers etc. All of us battling against the elements……it took [...]
