Hill Explorer by Mark Barrett - A new blog from an avid hillwalker, focusing mainly on walks in Snowdonia and the Peak District. Updates are regular and include route descriptions, photos, and GPS files for a variety of walks.

One Foot in Northumberland by Mick Catlin - We saved your life! But on a good day you will only be able to walk to the shops you will have to give up hiking …….. That was the news Mick was told as he woke up in a strange hospital bed missing his left leg. This site is all about Mick and his struggle to prove them all wrong and get back out to the remote hills that he loves so much from the first worrying steps in hospital to his walks in the hills.

Snowdon Walks by Jamie Elston - A guide for all those who are planning to climb Snowdon. I have been walking and climbing in Snowdonia (and also the Lakes) for many years so I wanted to start a blog and Facebook community that is focused around Britain’s busiest peak and a way to offer tips, stories and any advice for both novice and experienced climbers.

Scottish Walks by Tony Connery - A very useful website for those of us who wish to know more about Scotland's rich landscape and the best walking opportunities in the country. As Tony describes it "On this Scotland Walking website you will find details about my Scottish Hillwalking exploits in some of the most beautiful countryside this nation has to offer. Scottish Mountains, Valleys, Glens, Moors, Lochs all play their part in what must be one of the most relaxing and breathtaking views I have ever came across in my Life. Some of the areas covered are Pitlochry, The Trossachs, Cairngorms, North Skye, Lomond Glens, Loch Tay, Loch Lomond, Kinlochleven, Loch Sloy, Eildon Hills, Glen Nevis, Goat Fell, Arrochar, Ochil Hills, Greenock Cut and The West Highland Way & my latest Scottish walks include Torridon Mountains, Shieldaig, Loch Clair & Coulin Walk, Beinn Eighe, River Kinlochewe & Coire Mhic nobile"

Waterfall Country by Charles Hawes - Charles launched his walks blog site which concentrates on Wales in May 2012 to coincide with the opening of the Wales Coast Path. I am doing this in long day walks, sometimes a few days in a row. I started at Chepstow and have reached Pembrokeshire. My posts are richly illustrated with photography- I am a professional photographer of gardens. I write in a personal and I hope in an amusing way and I am candid about likes and dislikes. I did a daily post using only my iphone when I did 10 days on the GR65 (Way of St James) and am doing occasional posts about other walks and about equipment.

Matt O'Brien - This is a wonderful enthusiasts site. Matt has been walking since 2004 when bitten by the walking bug during a challenging Yorkshire Three Peaks trip. He mentions on his site "While the majority of my early walks were in the Yorkshire Dales I began to broaden my horizons in 2005 when my wife Lisa and I purchased a tent and that summer visited the North Pennines, Hadrian's Wall, Kielder Forest Park and finally the Lake District. Much to my delight Lisa also enjoyed the hill walking experience".

Sally Jordan - Sally's site is dedicated to long distance walking and she has done quite a few. Here reflections of the walks, sometimes accompanied by husband Richard and/or daughter Helen are an inspiration. Apart from some well known National Trails she has also walked some lesser known jewels.

Angela Clarke - Peak Walker is a photo diary of Angela's walks. Most of the walks take place in the Peak District, where she lives, but there are also walks in the Lake District as she is slowly 'bagging' the Birketts. The photographs are really well taken which makes her pages a pleasure to browse.

George Tod - George's site is full of personal records of his many walks on Northern England's trails. I bet you will have fun reading them.

Barry Riley - Barry calls his website 'Brilwalks' and that is just what they are to him. Like me he walks with friends 'The Boys' or his family. I recommend you read about Barry's exploits. His reports are full of passion. An excellent personal site.

Manchester University - The club have a good web site with a comprehensive record of walks.
