Fell walking

We spend most of our holidays walking in the hills, mainly in Britain, but also in other countries. There is nothing quite like it. (See the pictures .)

Often we just make circular walks each day, but on many holidays we have walked an end to end route taking many days. These include inn to inn holidays in France, Catalonia and Switzerland , and several of the longer long distance paths in the British Isles

For more information about long distance footpaths, see the Long Distance Walkers Association or National Trails in England & Wales. or Scotland's Great Trails..

There is a tiny selection of the pictures , from these and other holidays, to give you a feel for the magic of hill walking.

We have also done many inn to inn walks in Europe 

Also have a look at Ann Bowker's Mad about Mountains . It has some superb collections of pictures, and it is continually updated with pictures of her two most recent walks. Be warned though – if you live far from the Lakes, as we do, it will make you very envious of someone who has such walking on her doorstep.

Other good Lakeland sites are Sean McMahon's Striding Edge  and Andrew Leaney's Lakeland Fells.

I give a talk on fell walking.
