Another publication in a series of articles I've collaborated on with Adventure Travel magazine, the 'longest-standing outdoor active travel magazine in the business'. (See my previous entries here).

Adventure Travel's 'Weekenders' section includes photo essays of a number of "cracking UK adventures", to help people "make the most of those precious two days". For the July/August 2017 issue of the magazine, I was commissioned to submit a feature on Tranter's Round, a 36-mile horseshoe over the 18 Munros in the West Highlands of Scotland that make up the Mamores, Grey Corries, Aonach Mor, Aonach Beag, Carn Mor Dearg and Ben Nevis. The traverse of these peaks in 24 hours is the goal of a classic fell-running challenge named after Philip Tranter. They're also ideal for a backpacking adventure.

My thanks to Adventure Travel editor, Rob Slade, for continuing to choose my images. Look out for more photo essays I'll be submitting for future issues of the magazine.
