Scotland here we come!

Tomorrow I’m hoping to travel to Scotland for a few days with my brother. We'll be heading to the West Coast via Crainlarich SYHA, for some mountain biking, a few peaks and maybe a wild camp, midges and weather permitting.

A year in the life of the Cairngorms

Chris Townsend has just published his latest book, A year in the Life of the Cairngorms; it’s a collection of photographs depicting the Cairngorms throughout the year. I’ve ordered a copy, because I couldn’t resist a book containing 120 pictures of my favourite area, and I’m sure it will give me some great ideas for future backpacking trips and wild camping locations.

Cold Turkey and the Cornish Coastal Path.

I’ve just returned from three weeks holiday in Cornwall without access to the internet. No blogging, no webcams and no email, I hadn’t realised just how much I’d miss my daily fix of the hills, it's great to be back online again!
