About Paddy Dillon

Paddy Dillon

Paddy Dillon is one of Britain's most prolific outdoor writers and photographers.

He has travelled extensively, writing and illustrating thousands of magazine articles, contributing to almost every outdoor title over the years. He has written and illustrated over 80 guidebooks, covering walking areas and long-distance trails, with contributions to 30 more publications.

Paddy Dillon is one of the world's most prodigious walkers... a fine writer, and his latest work, the first serious account of the Cumbria Way, is a model of how such guidebooks should be done... the clearest possible maps... I particularly enjoyed the blunt realism of his many pieces of advice... the guide is bang up to date... he is a great observer and inquirer.
