The Cape Wrath Trail, North West Scotland; July 2015

“It’s at this point I learnt that the CWT is the Buckaroo of long Distance Paths; you know for sure that the path is going to turn to a boggy, hellish quagmire – you just don’t know when!” Route Unfortunately there was not enough time to cover the entire trail as we only had 7 … Continue reading The Cape Wrath Trail, North West Scotland; July 2015

A Couple of Days in the Northern Pennines

Each year we try and fit in a trip to Greg's Hut which is on the Pennine Way just off the summit of Cross Fell. It's one of very few bothies in England and a nice alternate to putting a tent up after walking all day! Wee disclaimer: If you plan on walking this route, … Continue reading A Couple of Days in the Northern Pennines

Snow covered Ingleborough from Little Ingleborough

I'd not been to the Yorkshire Dales National Park for quite some time - I think it will have been August last year - and I was keen to return. I'd planned last week, but it wasn't to be. This last week I have checked the forecasts hoping for fresh dumps of snow (the Dales … Continue reading Snow covered Ingleborough from Little Ingleborough

Hebden Bridge (yep, again) to Sowerby Bridge

I originally intended to get out to the Dales this weekend, but my friend and I were planning on cooking Burns Supper for a few folk and the timings would have not worked for people wanting to eat food before midnight. That's happened before... I thought about a few alternatives, but given the fact we … Continue reading Hebden Bridge (yep, again) to Sowerby Bridge

Wadi Rum, Jordan; May 2014

I thought I would add some older hikes onto the blog as well - the cold weather over the last few weeks has got me thinking of desert air and warmer climes. Last year I went to Jordan to hike and see Petra and to hike in Petra - I'll add that at some later … Continue reading Wadi Rum, Jordan; May 2014

Hebden Bridge to Haworth and back over the Tops

It was with some satisfaction that I spotted a band of wintry weather heading our way towards the end of the week and I planned a familiar walk in the snow to take advantage of what's not the most common of weather types in England. I would just say that you shouldn't blunder out into the snow … Continue reading Hebden Bridge to Haworth and back over the Tops

Guiseley to Ilkley over the Moor

I decided I had better start hiking more regularly after a period with not much walking whilst I was out of the country and making craft beer brewers noticeably richer. I adore hiking, but sometimes a part of me forgets this and I struggle to get out in the morning - particularly when Yorkshire Mire is the … Continue reading Guiseley to Ilkley over the Moor
