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.

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.
