From time to time I will invite someone to write a Guest Blog for Hill-Walking For The Over 60s.  Occasionally someone will come forward and offer to write a blog.

These are my Guest Bloggers:

If you would like to join their ranks then please drop me an email stating who you are and what you would like to write a blog about.

Remember it has to be related to walking and outdoor activities for the over 60s.  It can be about equipment that you use, techniques you have used or about what you do as an over 60s outdoor adventurer.

Just let me know and I will get back to you.  You will have to provide 2-3 photos of yourself and be prepared to have your story advertised on Twitter and Instagram.
