As a family we go hiking most weekends and have done for several years but we are not Munro baggers at all. The truth is we often ignore the munro in favour of the hills less visited. Over the coming months I’ll be adding reviews for some of the hikes, walks, locations and places we have been to and in particular the suitability for families, I’ll also be adding kit reviews and what we use to help ourselves and our daughter achieve the distances and hikes we do, safely and securely.
