love your local hills

I grew up in a little town called Hebden Bridge, buried deep in the leafy valleys of the southern Pennines, just a short hop from the Dales and Peaks. The Lake District and Snowdonia were easily reachable with an early morning start, and to be honest I didn’t know how lucky I was. Work eventually took me south, with high ground shrinking into my rear-view mirror, and all of a sudden mountain trips became much more of a hassle to plan. So this issue is dedicated to all the exiled hillwalkers out there, with routes and adventure inspiration on peaks stretching from north Devon to the north-west Highlands. If you live down south, we’ve got easy escapes to Exmoor and the Brecon Beacons. From the Midlands, a classic long weekend…

castell y gwynt

Not so much a peak in its own right, Castell y Gwynt is a true geological marvel and one of the most visually spellbinding mountain features in north Wales. This region is well-known for the abundance of rock its mountains flaunt, but the peaks of the Glyderau take it to the next level. Tiptoe your way to their rock-strewn tops and you’ll experience a mountain scene like no other in Britain, with an endless collection of spikes, spires and turrets spilling across the mountainside. You get memorable views from the weird rock formation of Castell y Gwynt too, with a 360° panorama stretching across Snowdon, Tryfan and the hulking mass of the Carneddau range to the north. • Walk it this weekend – see page 103…

plan your weekend of adventure

So you saved the date: 14-17 November 2019. But have you got your tickets yet? One of the UK’s biggest outdoor festivals is preparing to open its doors for four packed days of films, talks and specialist sessions on all things mountainy.

Based around the Brewery Arts Centre and the cobbled streets of Kendal, on the edge of the Lake District National Park, events will be held in a base camp tented village, cinema screens and Kendal’s 900-seat leisure centre.
