Lonewalker's Walking Diary
Hello and Welcome!
You've found the Walking Diary of Lonewalker, the place where I intermittently record the walks I've undertaken, paths I've followed and backpacking trips I've struggled through.
Lonewalker is my nickname of course, one I gave myself after a friend dropped out of our first long distance walk, the Coast to Coast, in 2006. I decided to continue on my own, despite my inexperience at the time and the name has sort of stuck.
My real name is Stuart Greig - often with a "W" thrown in between for good measure and to allow myself to look slightly pompous on the guide books I've written (see below). I'm an IT consultant during the week and a wanderer of the high places at weekends. Based in Cheshire I have good access to the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales and I've spent many an enjoyable weekend in both places, with the ocassional visit to Wales, Scotland and the far south.
I hope you find the website useful. I've certainly enjoyed writing the content and after that first nervous crossing of England, I've gone on to walk many long distance paths in the UK, always on my own and you will find the journals of those walks in these pages.
