Publisher's website 2018

Skiddaw, Helvellyn, Scafell and Scafell Pike: four fine mountains, and placed just far enough apart that a strong walker can do them in a day - but only just. It’s a circuit that’s big, but also beautiful, with Skiddaw at sunrise, Helvellyn after everyone else has gone home, and 45 miles of woodland, upland and crag in between.

A walk can be a lot shorter than the Lakeland Threethousands and still be a challenge. Turnbull and Clayton cover the Old County Tops. By substituting The Old Man of Coniston for Skiddaw saves ten miles, but loses nothing in serious mountain ground. The authors round up the eight Valley Horseshoe routes and describe the 25-mile Roman Road from Windermere to Penrith. For the extremely energetic there’s the 60-mile Bob Graham Round and challenges beyond . . .

Ronald Turnbull gives valuable advice on diet, pace, timing and training for both walkers and hillrunners. From the rocky way round Langdale to the bivvybag circuit of almost everything, Lakeland Mountain Challenges will show you the way.
