High Force Circular - North Pennines AONB

I figure if you’re going to go hiking on a rainy day, do a hike that takes in 4 different waterfalls as you know they’ll be spectacular. I did just this in the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty as I chose to hike a 5-ish mike circular trail from Low Force, up to High Force and a coup...

Snowdon Via Rhyd Ddu in thick cloud (video report)

I hiked Snowdon early last June. My research hinted that 'd likely enjoy the Rhyd Ddu path the most, so off we went. Well, what a hike!!! We lost visibility relatively early on. The gales were intense, but it felt fun and like an adventure, coming across sheep through the thick cloud almost at the p...

Re: Hiking through disused quarries on the edge of Snowdonia

Hi Skyelines Thank you so much for sharing al of that. It's funny how as it was my first time visiting, I thought it was strangely freeing how you could wander most parts, but it certainly sounds like they've put up more fencing from when you've been in the past. The facts about the explosive store ...

Hiking through disused quarries on the edge of Snowdonia NP

Last spring, I went on a hike through some of the disused quarries on the edge of Snowdonia National Park - the old quarrymen's houses were especially fascinating. Lunch was enjoyed in Llanberis before heading back up the hillside to where we parked the car past the very cool looking Vivian Quarry l...

Oh my goodness, thank you so much to everyone who replied. This has given me plenty of food for thought and things to research. A particular thank you to nigheandonn who took the time to look at my previous trip reports to look at the types of walks I've previously done. I feel very blessed to have ...

Hiking in Jordan - Wadi Ghuweir

Last autumn I was fortunate enough to visit Jordan - a last minute decision, but I'd never seen the flight prices so low to coincide with my school's October Half Term (I'm a teacher) so jumped on it when I had the chance. About an hours drive north of Petra is a stunning gorge called Wadi Ghuweir. ...

Best base for hiking without a car?

Hello everyone Hoping you may be able to give some advice. I'm considering visiting Scotland for a week at the end of the summer, coming up from London on the sleeper train. I want to spend my days doing day hikes, but worry about how difficult this may be without a car to get to trailheads. Can any...

Tropical Paradise along Cornwall's SW Coast Path

Prior to this year, I’d never been to Cornwall. I grew up at the opposite end of the country, and my parents always said ‘it’s quicker to fly to somewhere like Spain than drive all that way’. But this year, I visited the county for the first time. I’d heard it could support tropical plants thanks to...

SW Coast Path - Lizard Point to Kynance Cove

Over the summer I hiked from the National Trust's Lizard Point along the South West Coast Path to Kynance Cove. The weather was all over the place, but the whole thing was stunning from start to end. From coastal cliff erosion, black sand beaches, white sand beaches, turquoise waters, a very handy c...

The Gorgeous Lydford Gorge Hike

Lydford Gorge on the edge of Dartmoor National Park was an absolute gem when we visited a couple of months ago. An easy circular hike that featured foot bridges, waterfalls from the towering White Lady Waterfall to much smaller ones. Sections of board walk, tunnels, fish and so much moss and ferns. ...

Aberglaslyn Gorge, Llyn Dinas and Cwm Bychan easy circular

I put together this video walk report of my experience hiking from Aberglaslyn, through the stunning gorge, Beddgelert (apologies for the mispronunciation of this in the video!) Llyn Dinas and a descent through Cwm Bychan - complete with its old ropeway. Whilst it was an easy 5.7 mile circular walk ...

Glyders in a Heatwave

Back during May Half Term I was up in North Wales for the week, and on the bank holiday Monday, during a bit of a heatwave, chose to hike the Glyders. By far, the highlight of my week up there and I've put together this video walk report. If you choose to watch it, I hope you enjoy it :) https://www...

Hever to Leigh - the best walk close to London?

This hike featured 3 gorgeous villages, 2 castles, 1 stately home, rivers, ponds, woods, farmers fields - it was all kinds of amazing. Despite the rocky start of not being able to locate a taxi (as it was a point to point walk) once we got going, the whole thing was phenomenal. If you think you coul...

Solo Hike at Box Hill

What's everyone's thoughts on solo hiking? Anxious, hate it, love it, prefer not to do it but would rather hike solo than not at all? I'd love to know! It wouldn't be my preference every time, but I did enjoy this solo hike at Box Hill in Surrey. Getting to be alone and in thought was very therapeut...
