The Big Walks Club website was set up to record my mountain adventures and was originally inspired by the Ken Wilson's wonderful Big Walks and Classic Climbs books. The site will hopefully also inspire and help others enjoy their own mountain experiences.

The site provides information about expeditions being planned, as well as reports and photographs from previous trips.

Trip Reports are posted on the website as they happen. Quick links to some of the most popular pages on the site are given below :  

Welcome to the Big Walks Club Website

Video films have been made of most of trips. These would help greatly in the planning stage if you are thinking of repeating any expeditions and are produced very professionally. If you would like a DVD please go to Trip Reports for details of how to get hold of copies.

A section giving Useful Links is provided for information on weather and routes.

Please leave a message on the contact page if you want any more information about the routes we have completed or if you would like to join me in the Mountains.  It's great  to hear from like minded souls.

The Munros are compleated !

In a small good weather window I took my venerable old Saab 96 up to Scotland to attempt to compleate the Munros. The first stop was Skye where I climbed Stob Dubh Mor in misty but for Skye reasonable weather. After a night in the Sligachan bunkhouse I took the Corran and Lochaline ferries to drive round to the bottom of Ben More. The ascent of Ben More is very straightforward and so after an easy climb I was standing on the top of my final Munro. It was a great feeling and I have many wonderful memories to look back on my journey to compleation. A significant life event I feel but I do not know yet what will come next.

The site is dedicated to the memory of my Dad, John Galsworthy, Group Scout Leader of the 11th Warrington Troop and loving father, who gave me the skills to climb all the mountains in my life
