This trip took place on 30th June, so exactly half way through my atempt to walk 1000 miles in a full year.

Two days spent canoeing the waters of the River Tay in blazing sunshine and driving rain were a perfect way to welcome the coming autumnal changes. I'll let … Continue reading Team Deliverance Take on the Tay

The forecast looked good. Yet the fog became thicker as I passed Pitlochry and even from the roadside near Elphin, Suilven was … Continue reading Sharing Suilven
