Long distance walks in the Scottish, Welsh and English hills – but in manageable chunks. Wilson makes an entertaining companion. Once he was fit enough for the Bob Graham Round (see Macc and the Art of Long Distance Walking), now he‘s the victim of a crumbling hip. So, he breaks the walks into sections and, instead of calling on a shuttle-service of friends with cars, takes to public transport.
The walks include an Alternative Snowdon Horseshoe, a Scottish Coast to Coast and the Yorkshire Centurion, as well as several Peak District rounds. And a new, gentler activity is proposed for the compulsive list-ticker: island-bagging. Wilson‘s experiences are recounted in his own inimitable style, with the usual eccentric digressions into topics such as coffin roads and cut-hopping, Munros and mobile phones, solo climbing and slippered pigs.
