Graham really know the mountains well. Not just how to get up and down them and stay safe. He knows about their history, their geology and their wildlife. On every day, seven in total, I went somewhere new and learned something new.

It was a bit worrying, being an older woman and joining a group of fit, younger walkers, but thanks to Graham we soon bonded into a great group and everyone was very supportive. Theory was mixed in with walking, so we spent very little time...More
