Old Man of Storr walk route map Skye Hike time wanderung store

A superb view of the Old Man of Storr. Whilst many people hike right up to the Old Man of Storr - few walk beyond it to a better vantage point in my humble opinion, which is where this photo was taken. Make sure you do and follow the map route below for the best views of the Old Man of Storr.

An impressive Cathedral Quarry walk from Little Langdale in the Lake District


Cathedral Quarry walk map Lake District caves Little Langdale car park
The impressive main chamber inside Cathedral Quarry, a small network of interlinked quarries above Little Langdale that where mined hundreds of years ago, and although now disused, and maintained and kept open for free by the National Trust. They are a good little destination for a walk and explore, especially with kids, and there's a pub in Little Langdale too called the Three Shires!

A walk around Buttermere - my favourite 'Lake' walk

Buttermere Lake District walk best lakes quick route circular haystacks fleet with pike
Looking down Buttermere towards Fleetwith Pike on this cold winters day in February. You wouldn't think it on this photo but we'll experience all weathers in a couple of hours. This walk around Buttermere is my favourite 'flat' walk in the Lakes and is relatively easy, but gives plenty of different vantage points and settings and can be done in a couple of hours.

Wild camping in the Lake District - the best way to experience the great outdoors: Top tips


There's nothing quite like a wild camp - it's an experience I'd recommend to anyone who loves walking and the outdoors. When everyone else has left the mountains you have the place to yourself - and the chance to see spectacular sunsets, sunrises, mist filled valleys and the most amazing dark and stary night skies you'll ever see if you are lucky. In the Lake District you are allowed to camp high in the fells above the highest fell wall and there are plenty of spots for that! If you'd like to experience a wild camp yourself - check out my tips and camping essentials below.
