The 150ft cast iron bridge spans the River Spey and is a favourite attraction with those walking our Speyside Way holiday. Maintenance of the bridge is carried out by Moray Council and therefore the assumption was they were the owners of the…

Reflections on St Bees beach

A morning at St Bees

Finding time to get out walking over winter months can be fairly difficult. Shorter days, inclement weather and dare I say it in November, Christmas preparations, all playing their part. So it’s really important to grab those little windows of opportunity when they arise. This morning I had the luxury of a few spare hours…

Cooling off at Filey

Scarborough to Filey

We did it! 109 miles of the Cleveland Way completed, and what better way to finish off the afternoon than to enjoy the sunshine in the seaside town of Filey with a paddle in the sea. It had been a great 9 days with so much variety, challenging enough but with some easier days too,…

A lot of little ups & downs but very enjoyable.’ Well, after walking this stretch to Scarborough I think that’s a fairly accurate way to sum it…
