UK Backpacking

Backpacking – carrying all your equipment with you on a multi-day route – brings freedom and independence and there can be no finer way of exploring wild places. The key to success is packing thoroughly, using lightweight gear. Overnight you can camp, bivvy or maybe stay in a bothy.

Many trails and mountain routes can be backpacked. Here we have pulled out a selection of the possibilities, including the challenging Cape Wrath Trail.
