British Isles Challenges, Collections and Activities


Books to help you challenge yourself to reach mountain summits, walk Britain’s longest routes, run the greatest fell running challenges and cycle some of Britain's best end to end and sea to sea routes.

Reach mountain summits throughout the UK with Lists and suggested routes to the Munros, Corbetts and Nuttalls, as well as the Lakeland Fells.

If you're thinking of walking one of the National Trails, then this is the first book you should read. The ultimate long distance hike in the UK is the End to End Trail (Land’s End to John O’Groats) and there are also guidebooks for challenges such as the Three Peaks and running the greatest fell running challenges – the Big Rounds – the Bob Graham Round, Charlie Ramsay and Paddy Buckley.

If you are planning to sleep in the mountains and wild places, there are plenty of inspiring ideas and tips when you read the books of the Bivvy and Bothy.

Cycle across some of the best and most varied scenery you will ever find, using our guidebooks for the Lands End to John o' Groats (LeJog) cycle challenge, and the ever popular Sea to Sea Cycle Route (C2C). There are others too, such as the Way of the Roses, and Hadrian's Cycleway, but these and many other cycle touring routes are included within their relevant regional sections of the website.
