Getting away from them all

Seeking a bit of peace and quiet

I go walking to get away from other people. Not completely – a cheery ‘hello’ is always welcome, as is a good walking partner (i.e. one who doesn’t talk too much) – but, like many walkers, I want to avoid the crowds. I want to ‘get away from it all’, ‘head off the beaten track’ and other such clichés.

A Scottish winter wonderland

Just hear those red deer singaling, ring ting tingaling too

During the winter months in Scotland, the weather can change hourly and only a fool would pre-empt the forecast more than a day in advance.However, on this occasion, good luck was the reward for some advanced planning and the three of us were provided with some of the best mountain days ever experienced.

Island walking

Who said it never snows on the Isle of Wight?

Its size means many interesting walks are easily reachable, and the remoteness of many locations and the island itself mean many of the island's inhabitants rely on the local bus and train services. The train runs along the eastern side of the island from Ryde to Shanklin, with converted tube carriages meandering along quite frequently.
