Hi Andrew, this is an absolutely glorious site which I am sure will provide inspiration for walking holidays in the future - sometimes I feel like I don't know where to start. Here's hoping you stay fit and healthy and get to add more amazing content to this site for many more years.

We very much enjoy your walk descriptions and images. They've been an excellent source of inspiration and advice for some years. Recently we enjoyed the same walking holiday in the Bernese Oberland that you did, Andrew, in 2019. Your notes gave us some very helpful tips. We were sorry (?!) to read the weather wasn't good enough for you to walk to Adelboden via the Bunderchrinde Pass - we were pleased (maybe satisfied is a better word!) that we did it though won't be doing it again any time soon!

We have followed your wonderful walks over the last few years and have enjoyed every one. Spent four days in South Shropshire last week and were greatly missing your input! Can we suggest you walk this wonderful unspoilt area, a real hidden gem! Recommend Castle Hotel Bishops Castle.

I stumbled upon your website while preparing for a vacation in the Lake District. It was a wonderful source of inspiration, I followed some of your routes and used pieces of others for planning my own walks. The links to your routes on OutdoorActive where hugely helpful with that. Thank you for your dedication and all your beautiful pictures - they made me so excited for my trip and now serve as a great reminder of my week in the Lake District.

Thank you for the lovely pictures and description of the walk (Goathland to Grosmont Rail Trail), I enjoyed everything about it.
I'm saving your link so I can enjoy more walks.

Your pictures evoked the memory of Robert Brownings poem "Oh to be in England now that April's there" which Geoffrey Palmer recites on the YouTube clip (among many other versions).
Thanks you again for your delightful images.

What a wonderful website. Iโ€™ve really enjoyed looking through all your photos. Stumbled across it as I researched walks in Mallorca but kept scrolling through to look at all your other walks in the UK! Really fabulous.

Looking at your photography has inspired me to get out and take pics.

I love reading about your walks and especially looking at your amazing photos.
I followed your route up Skiddaw via Ullock Pike, last Saturday - I had originally planned to do this from Latrigg until I saw your pics - being able to see Skiddaw for the whole route was great - and by the time we climbed it, the cloud had disappeared. We had wonderful views. I always look out for your blogs when planning a walk - thank you .๐Ÿ˜Ž

Hi Andrew, lovely pics of your walk up Birks and Arnison Crag. You pick some great days for the weather to go walking. Your holiday on Islay and pics were stunning, you were lucky with the weather.

Thank you so much for the photographic record of these wonderful walks. Such a vivid reminder of happy fell walking days before age and the pandemic intervened. Your photographs and videos are inspiring and bring such delight. An absolute blessing. ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜

Thank you for the walks! It is really helping us discover some beautiful walks and build up confidence with map reading etc
The photos and description are a big help.

Thank you so much, I love your posts. I have looked at many of your walks in the Lakes. Have just found your walk up Glaramara via Hind Gill, very useful.....I have foot trouble and am a bit limited with the longer walks so am always seeking out viable ways of getting up the mountains without encountering difficult terrain or mammoth distances.
Great photos! Getting ready for a Lakes trip in June. Thanks again .

Die Wege sind manchmal seltsam, wie man auf diese fantastische Website gelangt. Ich suchte Fotos รผber die Gegend, in der James Rebanks lebt. Bei Google gab ich Matterdale und Fotos ein und dann kam ich auf Andrews Website. GrรผรŸe aus der Lรผneburger Heide in Norddeutschland.

The ways how to get to this fantastic website are strange sometimes. I was looking for photos of the area where James Rebanks lives. I put in Matterdale and photos on Google, and then I came across Andrew's website. Greetings from the Lรผneburg Heath in Northern Germany.

Hi Andrew, all the Best for Xmas and the New Year to you and your family. Enjoyed your pics of Lingmell in late November, one great walk is that. First did it whilst on Outwardbound from Eskdale in Nov 1969 and walked it a couple times since. Always very cold that side of Scafell but like you said miss all the crowds heading for Englands highest.
All the Best John Wylie
