The June issue of The Great Outdoors is out now.


The latest issue of The Great Outdoors features Suilven and the new film Edie. Emily Rodway met up with star Sheila Hancock and director Simon Hunter to talk to them about the film, a fascinating piece. I haven't seen Edie yet - I'm looking forward to it. It sounds great and it does have Suilven, which always looks fantastic. I've written a piece about the mountain too.

In a section called Camping Gear I review seventeen solo tents, tarps and bivi bags while Emily Rodway covers lightweight family camping, with some delightful pictures of her children, and Daniel Neilson looks at some of the latest camping equipment.

The rest of the magazine is packed with good stuff.
