The February 2018 issue is the first to be published in our 40th anniversary year, and it’s in shops today
Our Editor Emily Rodway opens the issue: “We start the year with tributes to some of the country’s most well-loved walking destinations: Ben Nevis and the Ballachulish Horseshoe in the West Highlands, Snowdonia’s Glyderau – and Helvellyn, the icon of the Lake District, with six routes described by Graham Uney, one of the fell-top assessors who will be visiting the mountain continually through the winter.”
