View to Pillar

Pillar

With the glorious weather from the weekend extending into Monday I decided to take myself off for a good long walk. My destination was Pillar, one of my favourite fells. Pillar is an enormous fell, towering above both the head of the Wasdale valley and the Ennerdale valley. It’s a fell that both our Coast…

Greenup Gill

Langdale Pikes

The birds were singing as I walked out of Stonethwaite yesterday morning heading for Greenup Gill. The sky was blue and my hands were cold. As I walked into the sun I thought of all the Coast to Coast walkers who’d began their day over the years squinting their eyes as they set off on…

Heading up onto Helvellyn

Helvellyn

To kick start spring I enjoyed one of my favourite walks today. Up onto Helvellyn and along Swirral Edge and Striding Edge. It’s a walk I never tire of. It’s not exactly a typical Mickledore walk but it’s good exercise for the legs. Especially when longer days are just around the corner. February had been…

Three Peaks

Yorkshire

Autumn into Winter

When there is snow on the ground and the sun is shining from a bright blue sky it requires very little motivation to get out and walk. However it’s not quite so easy when you wake to a damp, gloomy grey day and find the snow has melted. However it pays to lace up your…

Rob Roy Way

Rob Roy Way

Last month Peter Draemann from Zurich walked the Rob Roy Way with us. A 79 mile holiday from Drymen up to Pitlochry. Peter has very kindly shared an account of his walking holiday with us. We hope you enjoy reading it as much as we have. Peter began by saying, “First of all I would…

Egton Bridge to Robin Hood's Bay

Egton Bridge to Robin Hood’s Bay

“What a finish to this brilliant walk across England!” Lucy’s thoughts as she walked from Egton Bridge to Robin Hood’s Bay on Saturday. The sun was shining as well as it being a blustery day, making it a “fleece on – fleece off” kind of day. Yet another day full of surprises, with a mix…
