A Look At The Spring Issue Of The Great Outdoors

 The Spring issue of The Great Outdoors is out now. (Spring? It's the one between April and May - there are 13 issues a year).

In this issue I have a big feature looking at an overnight trip on the Moine Mhor and the gear I used. I also review an insulated jacket from Rohan and a fleece jacket from Montane.

Elsewhere in the gear pages Alex Roddie reviews five hydration products and five water treatment products.

In the main features five outdoor and landscape photographers describe their favourite mountain scenery, photographer Daniel Toal gives a tour of his favourite places in the Lake District in a photo-essay, Nicola Hardy walks round the coastline of the Isle of Man, and Alice Morrison hikes the Jordan Trail.

The issue opens with a dramatic photo of stormy weather with a rainbow over the Cuillin on Skye by Alan Novelli. There's a look at Liv Bolton's The Outdoors Fix podcast, James Forrest describes Buachaille Etive Mor, the new Countryside Code for England and the access debate is discussed, Matilda Wellin from Sweden says the British approach to the outdoors has won her over, Helen Mort looks at motherhood and mountaineering, Jim Perrin praises Parkhouse and Chrome Hills in the Peak District, and Hill Skills gives 5 tips to fight your fear of heights. 

In the Wild Walks pages Stefan Durkacz climbs Beinn a' Ghlo, Tim Gent walks the Erme Valley on Dartmoor, Vivienne Crow goes up Steeple from Ennerdale in the Lake District, also in the Lakes Ronald Turnbull climbs High Street from Patterdale, and in Wales Roger Butler visits Offa's Dyke and Llan-fawr.
