The Great Outdoors November Issue: headlamps, Hilleberg Niak & M.A.Harper book review


In the latest issue of The Great Outdoors, just published, I've tested ten headlamps and the Hilleberg Niak tent and also reviewed M.A. Harper's Lured By Mountains.

The theme of this issue is autumn walks and Jim Perrin recalls a glorious October day on Brandon Mountain in Ireland's County Kerry; Ronald Turnbull says Dalmally to Ben Nevis is a perfect autumn backpacking route; Vivienne Crow takes a colourful low level autumn walk through the Lake District; Ed Byrne goes on a hunt for the last of the snow on Braeriach just before it melts; and Mark Waring explores the autumnal forests and lakes along the border of Norway and Sweden.

Also in this issue there's a superb photo essay on cloud inversions by Andrew Terrill - some mouth-watering pictures here; Hannah Lindon interviews James Forrest about his round of the Nuttalls - 446 peaks in England and Wales; David Lintern reviews Art of Freedom:the life and climbs of Voytek Kurtyka by Bernadette McDonald, which sounds well worth reading; Roger Smith looks at the problems facing farmers; Hannah Lindon tackles the Bochlwyd Horseshoe in Snowdonia; outdoor instructor Myles Farnbank looks at leaving no trace in the hills; and Judy Armstrong reviews three windshirts at different price points.
