About the author
When his antique Saunders Jetpacker went porous in 1996, Ronald Turnbull stopped bothering with a tent. He has made eight bivvybag crossings of Scotland coast-to-coast and slept on 36 Scottish summits, 46 English, four in Northern Ireland, seven in Wales and one on the Isle of Man. He writes regularly for The Great Outdoors, Lakeland Walker and Trail magazines and the UKHillwalking website.
