Cape Wrath trail a long distance odyssey

What every break from 9 to 5 work needs. An epic long distance trekking adventure. Think of Scotland and most of you will instantly think of the West Highland Way. A well marked walking route between Fort William and Glasgow. Having completed this 100 mile trail in the late 1990’s I was looking for a […]

Aonach Eagach Ridge Scramble in Glen Coe

Recently working 9 to 5 has ceased to be a thing I need to do. Living the van life full time opens up so many opportunities, not just physically but creatively and motivationally.

Sitting at 7 mountains short of the half way point is a huge achievement. Approaching the second half of my target I have renewed vigour to complete […]
