September News: New guidebooks | Snowdonia | South West Coast Path | Pembrokeshire | Great Glen Way
We hope you are keeping safe and well. The seasons can't make up their mind here in Kendal, as we switch between brilliant sunshine and blustery autumnal downpours.
If you fancy making the most of autumn in the UK and visiting a national park, this month we launch the second in our two volume set to low-level day walks in Snowdonia: Low-level and easy walking in Snowdonia: South. You can find out more about both guidebooks and the secrets of Snowdonia by watching the recording of our live event with author Alex Kendall.
If you want to be inspired about the Lake District instead, our upcoming Fellranger guides to Walking in the Lake District Fells - Keswick and Walking in the Lake District Fells - Buttermere are available for pre-order ahead of their release in October.
As much as we love mountains here at Cicerone, we are also inspired by the UK coastline. Articles in this newsletter explore walking along Wales's Pembrokeshire Coast and Cornwall's South West Coast Path, as well as a coast-to-coast fastpacking trip along Scotland's Great Glen Way. You can also join Kev Reynolds to reminisce about trekking further afield on the Tour of Mont Blanc.
