Dave Hewitt has been writing about hills – and the people who climb them – for over 20 years. As befits the editor of The Angry Corrie, he is interested in the offbeat, quirky and occasionally obsessive side of the outdoor world. His own hillgoing hasn’t followed any real pattern. There has been a desultory round of Munros (and of the underrated Donalds), and also – a quarter-century ago – a 12-week walk along the Scottish watershed.
These days, based in Stirling, he tends to be Mr Daytrip, enjoying endless local-Ochiling plus meanders over Munros and Corbetts – with a great fondness for, although no great prowess in, winter.
