Win £150 each month from Cotswold Outdoor

We’re delighted that Cotswold Outdoor have joined us as the new sponsors of the Walkhighlands forum walk of the month competition.

The competition has run for more than ten years, but had been suspended whilst Scotland’s restrictions on leisure travel to within 5 miles home were in place. These restrictions were lifted today.

Every month Walkhighlands will have £150 worth of Cotswold Outdoor vouchers to give away to the users who submit the best reports from their walks, which don’t have to be in Scotland.

Get out with your camera and get writing stories from your adventures in our countryside. The lucky winner will receive £100 in vouchers to spend at Cotswold on gear of your choice, with £50 each month for the runner-up. Entries will be judged on both the quality of photographs and the written account itself. If you haven’t yet joined Walkhighlands, it’s free so why not do so now.

There are links to the relevant walk reports from the Walkhighlands route descriptions, whilst reports on hillwalks are also linked in from our database of hills. You can also read and comment on the latest reports here. Walk reports you submit build up to become own your personal walks blog recording all your experiences.

Remember – your walk report could be anywhere in the UK and it doesn’t have to be a hillwalk – or even a route described on Walkhighlands – to win. Do take care when heading out and plan carefully, particularly during the Coronavirus pandemic.

The Cotswold Outdoor journey began in a small out-building in the Cotswolds, selling a collection of camping accessories. Having gained a reputation amongst customers for insightful local knowledge and reliable products, the team soon started to open further stores, across the UK.

The brand now operates over 70 stores, currently reopening in line with Government advice regarding COVID-19, employs over 1,400 dedicated in-store experts and supports a range of partner organisations who encourage people to enjoy time spent outside.

Through them, and by continuing to offer quality products, award-winning customer service, expert advice and in-store services such as boot and pack fittings, Cotswold Outdoor remains one of the UK’s most trusted outdoor retailers.
