Up the adventure
Make a day (or a night) of it or use your hill walk to learn a new skill
Bivvy Take your waterproof sleeping bag cover and consider a night out under the stars on one of the summits.
Picnic Go after work with your food for sunset- or starlit-dining – no reservation required.
Scramble Choose a hill with little rocky outcrops and you can practise ‘scrambling’ – climbing without ropes – for added excitement.
Use multiple routes Got time? Explore the hill by walking up one way, down another, then going back up another path – an exercise regime that beats any gym.
Navigate It’s much harder to get lost on small hills, so use them as training grounds for the bigger peaks – take your map, compass and don’t forget your sense of adventure.
