Millrace editions are without doubt the most classically beautiful books we publish. This is a brand new edition with some very slight aging on the dust jacket. Very difficult to print and publish books of this quality anymore while still making them affordable.

Hardback with bespoke paper dust jacket, head and tail bands, classic printed endpapers.

An original first edition Millrace title.

Long distance walks in the Scottish, Welsh and English hills — but in manageable chunks. Wilson makes an entertaining companion. Once he was fit enough for the Bob Graham Round (see Macc & the Art of Long Distance Walking), now he‘s the victim of a crumbling hip. So, he breaks the walks into sections and, instead of calling on a shuttle-service of friends with cars, takes to public transport.

The walks include an Alternative Snowdon Horseshoe, a Scottish Coast to Coast and the Yorkshire Centurion, as well as several Peak District rounds. And a new, gentler activity is proposed for the compulsive list-ticker: island-bagging. Wilson‘s experiences are recounted in his own inimitable style, with the usual eccentric digressions into topics such as coffin roads and cut-hopping, Munros and mobile phones, solo climbing and slippered pigs.
