English Lake District

Lakeland adventures; rock, ice, mountain biking, etc. Biased I know, but the English Lake District is the best place to be in the whole wide world! Well, maybe not the best, but it is certainly up there amongst the best. 😉

Being based in the Lakes obviously a lot of the reports on this blog are about adventures in the area!

Also worth looking at is our Lakeland Letterboxes mapping.

St Bees Bouldering
Pinnacle Ridge
White Ghyll


Rock climbing on the Scottish isle of Skye. As Billy Connolly says, “Sea, Mountains, and Sky – in that order – Beautiful!”. A fantastic mountainous island.

Of course Skye is also home to:

  • The Inaccessible Pinnacle (the only Munro that can’t be summited by walking alone).
  • And Talisker whisky.
  • Also, the famous Cioch (made so in part by the film Highlander – “There should be only one!”). The picture above is of the Cioch on Sron Na Ciche in the Black Cullin mountains on Skye.

Lochaber & Ben Nevis

With amazing rock climbing like the Pause (above) on the Etive Slabs and the UK’s most reliable, almost alpine, winter venue – the north face of Ben Nevis (below) the western Scottish highlands are unbeatable. The only caveats, midges in summer and poor weather in winter. 😉
