A Look At The May Issue Of The Great Outdoors

The May issue of The Great Outdoors is out now. In it I have a piece I loved writing about some of my most memorable camps on long walks over the decades. I also review nine solo tents, a Finisterre insulated smock, EDZ waterproof socks, and a big pack from Osprey.

Other big features in this issue see Ursula Martin undertake a 3700 mile walk in Wales, Stacey McGowan Holloway on a music-inspired backpack of the Hebridean Way, and Rudolf Abraham hiking the Alpe Adria Trail from the Alps to the Adriatic.

Shorter pieces cover Robin Wallace's excellent Walk With Wallace YouTube channel, Vivienne Crow touring Skiddaw, Russ Moorhouse camping on every Wainwright, Fiona Russell on her first solo wild camp, how the outdoor community is supporting Ukraine, and Jim Perrin on Slieve Donard in the Mountains of Mourne.

Alex Roddie gives tips on how and where to pitch a tent in the Skills section while in the Gear pages David Lintern looks at kid's waterproofs. In Books Alan Rowan reviews The Peatlands of Britain and Ireland: A Traveller's Guide by Clifton Bain, and Alex Roddie reviews Tales from the Big Trails by Martyn Howe.

In Wild Walks Alan Rowan climbs Ben Stack in the Northern Highlands, Stefan Durkacz finds solitude in the Pentland Hills, Vivienne Crow visits Pike O'Blisco and Wet Side Edge in the Lake District, Roger Butler is high above the River Wye on Drum Ddu and Y Gamriw in the Cambrian Mountains, and Fiona Barltrop has a springtime walk on the South Downs.
