The July issue is out! Here’s why you should pick up a copy.
Do you prefer to travel to the mountains by train? If so, then you’re in for a treat. Our July issue is out now, and there’s a strong focus on mountains by rail. Hanna Lindon takes the Highland Sleeper to climb Ben Nevis via the iconic CMD Arête, Jon Sparks tracks the finest section of the Settle-Carlisle Railway, and we list six other walks around the UK accessible by train.
Other features include Roger Butler exploring the rocks, ravines, legends and lore of the Peak District; James Deboo introducing a handful of the Lake District’s little-known woodland tarns; and Andrew McCluggage enjoys a splendid trip to the Briançconnais, a little-visited but wildly beautiful region of the French Alps.
This month, our skills section is The Great Outdoors Guide to planning a multi-day walk, featuring contributions from our experts Ronald Turnbull, Phil Sanderson, Ali Ogden and Sue Oxley.
In the gear section, Chris Townsend reviews walking sandals while Judy Armstrong takes a look at day packs for women. There’s a look at some of the more interesting new gear releases, too.
As always, we feature ten mapped Wild Walks from around the UK, from the Black Mountains to the Isle of Lewis.
