Not in Fochabers

Today I was due to wake up in the village of Fochabers, in the north of Scotland. With some friends, we’d breakfast then head out to walk our second day on the Speyside Way. Disappointingly it was not to be.

Beverley Brook Walk

A short and very pleasant walk along a small river in South West London.

The Walks

Walking is what it's all about. Well this site anyway.

So delve on in and read the journeys I've taken on various long distance routes in the United Kingdom, by selecting a walk below:

How now brown cow

It’s been six years to the day since I saw this cow.

At the start of the Southern Upland Way

A wooden shelter in an attractive little harbour.

The trail in a tunnel

Trails on old railway lines often go a bit haywire when they reach an old tunnel. Not so the Monsal Trail, which the White to Dark follows in part.

A face in the rocks

A pre-lockdown smile on a family outing.

The autumnal colours of Borrowdale

Browns, rusts, golds and more. In the right place, autumn looks amazing.

My Books

Don't want to read on the website? Well fear not dear reader, for you can buy books covering the tales of several of my walks.

Photos

One of the best things about walking is all the great views you get to see. So why not head off on a photographic tour of the walks I've been on?

Equipment

Waterproofs, rucksacks, tents and all sorts of other stuff that you may want to equip yourself with when you head out.
