Overview

'Walking is something to be enjoyed by everyone, at times it can involve hard work, especially when you head off into the hills, but generally you get more out of a walk than the effort you put in.  Besides providing an interesting way to keep fit, you can see the countryside at its best with fascinating insights into wildlife, scenery and of course its weather.'
