Stephen Pern drops the latch on his South Coast home and heads for the open hills, or rather for open hill shelters, the hundred or so MBA-maintained bothies which are scattered across upland Britain. His mission is to supply each shelter with hanging points for wet clothes and gear, his supply of hooks and screws gradually diminishing over the course of his 3000 mile walk.

Funny, informative and engaging, the whole enterprise feels very genuine.
