This site has blogs from Brian and Martina’s longer walking trips in the great outdoors. We have done 3 multi-month hikes in the USA over the years and there is a blog of each here;

Pacific Crest Trail

Continental Divide Trail

and the Hayduke

Plus lots of other stuff including Canada, Alaska, the UK, Austria, Spain, the canyons and desert of south west USA…There are some sea kayaking posts too. You can see all of these from the menu.

We stay in the village of Fortrose, Scotland- near to the highlands, home of some great mountains, coastal and island scenery. We get out most weekends or more including rock and ice climbing, camping, sea kayaking, hiking and a bit of sheep farming as well! The photos link on the menu has plenty from both Scotland and abroad. Thanks for looking!
