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 several outdoor titles over the years. He has written and illustrated around 100 guidebooks, covering walking areas and long-distance trails, with contributions to 40 more publications. He is President of the Backpackers Club.

The guidebook is packed with valuable information for both the first-timer and the more experienced hiker... simple yet comprehensive. As always, Paddy Dillon is an excellent guide... the directions are also excellent... the timings are pretty accurate too. This is a great guidebook which I would highly recommend... it fairly does away with the need to carry other guidebooks and maps.
