Walking & Hiking » Guides » Uk, Long Distance Paths


A 3500-mile walk from John O'Groats to Lands End's


"In the Prologue to this formidable journey on foot, Victoria Morris remarks:'From the time I caught up with reality, I have been completing a mental farewell tour, realising one by one that my childhood ideals no longer exist and saying goodbye to them.' But this memoir is proof that we can recreate those ideals through the paths we forge, inhabit them fully through writing. Morris immerses herself in the hills, staying `respectfully on the same side as the weather', biding her time as 'the landscape aches past'. Her journal is witty, frank and inspiring, alive to the ways that walking changes noticing: how 'common occurrences become omens', horizons shift, the ground's personality alters. Morris started her long walks as a way to fill the 'mountain-shaped hole' in her life at university. This book will fill the mountain-shaped hole in your imagination." - Helen Mort poet and author of Lake Dsitrict Trail Running.

"Finding the extraordinary in the apparently ordinary, Highpoints reaffirms the joy of adventure - and of simply putting one foot in front of the other. While Victoria Morris touches every corner of Britain , she also finds the freedom we all crave." - Jonny Muir, author of Heights of Madness.

"A heart- warming acount of an unconventional journey: Highpoints captures the wonder of our wild places, and revives the childhood freedom of adventure withinus all." Alex Stainforth, author of Another Peak.
