Wonderful walking

Seeing is believing! Imagine that you are walking in these hills.

Hillguide no longer for hire!

I am not hanging up my boots! The call of the hills is too strong. But I have decided to discontinue my service as a guide for hire. There are several factors involved in my decision, suffice to say,  I have many alternatives and opportunities in mind including a very busy year with family commitments.

It’s been great. I have met people from around the UK and Europe and enjoyed their company. Many have been passionate about what the hills have to offer including the evidence of past life in the form of neolithic carvings, bronze age cists and iron age hillforts. Oh yes, and the Romans! Many thanks to all of my previous customers and followers of my postings.

I’ll leave this message up for a while so the word spreads. At some point however I will take down this site as well as my Facebook page and twitter account. It’s not the end…just a transition!

Best wishes.

Roy.
