882 Walks Uploaded and About This Website
This web site has been created to share the walking routes and photos of the last 30 years with other walkers and mountaineers. Over a 1000 hills have been climbed - all in the British Isles. The author has compleated (correct spelling!) the Munros, their tops and Furths twice plus the Corbetts, Grahams and Donalds once. The majority of the routes are in Scotland but there are also some from the Lake District, Yorkshire Dales, Peak District, Wales and Ireland. Regarding Scottish Hills, this site is only interested in the original historical lists and any sensible amendments to those lists. Modern inventions such as Corbett Tops and Graham Tops are completely ignored!
On 20/9/17, 882 walks had been uploaded. Others will be added as they are revisited and digital photos are taken. The web site will be constantly evolving. Maps may be added one day!
The web site is arranged around natural geographical areas. In Scotland the classification for the Munros and Corbetts is used, from 0, 1, 2 ..... 9, 10a, 10b, 11 ..... 15, 16,17. These main regions are then sub-divided by the author who realises that these may not meet with the approval of serious mappers!
A dedicated e-mail address has been provided in the Contact section but it is not automatic and you will have to copy it into your own e-mail set up! E-mails will be read from time to time so don't expect an immediate response!
The nearest hills to the author's home are in the Peak District and free guided walks may be offered during the times the author is at home but, from March to October, the author is away most of the time!
The site has been designed to be as simple as possible and the author intends to keep it that way! Unlike some web sites which are “all singing, all dancing” and have many contributors, this site is a one man band and time is better spent mountaineering than making the site look “pretty”!
All photos are titled. The title comes up (with date taken) if the mouse hovers over the photo. Clicking on the photo enlarges it. It can be closed by scrolling down and clicking on "close" or, simpler still, just clicking on any part of the photo.
