Helen and Paul Webster share a passion for walking and wild places. In 2003-2004 they undertook a life-changing 4,000-mile continuous backpacking trip across Europe. Following their return, they quit their careers to begin a new life evangelising for Scotland’s spectacular outdoors – especially the Highlands and Islands. Together they set up Walkhighlands, a free online guide and forum which has become the busiest walkers’ website in the UK. They have also written fifteen guidebooks to various areas of Scotland, including Scottish Island Bagging, and in 2018 Paul won the Scottish Landscape Photographer of the Year competition. They live in the Cairngorms National Park.
