Howgill Fells

Howgill Fells Hike
8th August 2019

Highlights of the Howgill Fells, a fantastic range of open hills. Our TeamWalkers walking group completed a 16-km route to the tops of Great Dummacks (fantastic name for a Hill), Calders, The Calf, Fell Head and Yarlside, all of which are over 610m (2,000-ft) in height. The total height gain for today was just over 1,000m; no wonder my knees ache! Also detoured to see the prehistoric hill figure of the Black Horse of Bush Howe, or perhaps it's just some scree that looks a little like a camel?!

Wild Camping Expedition - Scotland

3-day Wild Camping Expedition
Bridge of Orchy, Scottish Highlands
August 2019

3-day Wild Camping expedition amongst the mountains, glens and lochs to the east of Bridge of Orchy, Scottish Highlands. Didn't see another person for 3 days. Fantastic to spend so long amongst the rivers and hills, travelling at a slow pace with time to take it all in.
