The Drakestone and Harbottle lake are real hidden gems in the Northumberland national park. The small loop offers some of the best views the county has to offer. Unfortunately, storm arwen has caused significant damage to the surrounding forest of this walk. Parking at Harbottle Castle would be advised…
The drama of Mam Tor is so epic that this hike starts and ends there – frankly, seeing it once just isn’t enough. This part of the Peak District is all deep dales, high moorland, bleak melodrama and huge panoramas. There’s parking close to the summit of Mam Tor, so it’s easy to reach too.
From the Mam…

Starting at Ogwen Cottage at the western end of the stunning Lake Ogwen, this is an absolutely classic hike that puts you right in the midst of some of Snowdonia’s most awe-inspiring scenery. The trails are rocky and, in some places, have sheer drops but don’t actually require any technical skills.
Starting at the village of Drewsteighton this 11 mile hike takes in some of Dartmoor’s finest scenery. Highlights include the dramatic Teign river gorge, Iron Age hillforts, Fingle Bridge & Castle Drogo.
The route is fairly strenuous with a couple of notable large climbs. You’ll pass a refreshment stop…
The first part of the walk will take you along the high street, with small shops and cafes on your left and the river running along on the right. This is all paved until you turn onto Newton Road. When you see a small metal gate, this is the path so crossover and head through.
The next mile can get very…
The highest Pub in the UK? Talk about national treasures! But it’s not just that. There’s quite a few waterfalls on the way, which was my reason for choosing this route, plus the pub half way can’t hurt.
The walks starts in Keld, there’s a Farm car park that has an honesty box: £2.00 for short stay…
Helm Crag has been on my list for years as an enjoyable hike with rewarding views since I first started hiking in 2015. So it felt wonderful to finally get the chance to tick it off.
Starting from the Lancrigg Hotel free car park, the ascent was relatively gentle with some steeper sections aided with…

A long but technically easy 18 mile loop taking in coastal views, river walking and rolling countryside hills. Although not technically challenging, there’s quite a few ascents and descents, nothing drastic, but does make for weary legs towards the end.
Mostly grassy trails or stoney paths, some of the…
This is a delightful loch side and forest circuit taking in stunning views of the surrounding snow clad peaks. The walk starts from any of the carparks or laybys alongside Loch Morlich. Excellent path through the Caledonian Pine Forest to Rothiemurchus Estate, from here head steep up through heather…
The Cobbler, or Ben Arthur, is one of the most distinctive mountains in Scotland, offering incredible views of the surrounding area.
This popular climb is technical and rugged and therefore requires some scrambling skills, providing a real challenge and sense of adventure for any outdoor enthusiast.
