This site is about backpacking mainly in mountainous and remote regions of England, Wales and Scotland, but also covers a few low-level routes and day walks. The backpack routes are mostly self-designed and exclusively wild-camped. The Trips&Photos section lists all the routes by date and area.

As well as the popular National Parks, we describe routes in seldom trodden wild areas where we have walked for days and seen nobody at all, and there is plenty of inspiration to take that first step to wild pitching.

Apart from a few of the day walks, all trip reports have an interactive Ordnance Survey map and a downloadable GPX route file for Memory Map or other mapping software.
