A Hillwalker’s Christmas Wishlist
What’s at the top of your Christmas list when you spend your free time hillwalking, enjoying the Isle of Skye and photographing wildlife? Our outdoor expert, Graeme, tells us what he would like from Santa this year…
Socks…the Christmas classic!
The majority of men get socks on Christmas Day. However, as I spend a lot of time on my feet I’d be delighted with these.
The perfect pair of gloves
Keeping your extremities warm when you’re outside for long periods of time is essential. As I am active while I am outdoors and am often using my camera, it can be tricky to find a pair that are warm, breathable and not too bulky – but these look like they would tick all of the boxes!
A jacket to battle Skye’s elements
As an exposed island, the weather on Skye in the winter can be really harsh…and can change really quickly. This jacket looks like it would be well up to the job of keeping me warm and dry though.
A winter warmer
Lambswool is a great layer for hillwalkers as it regulates body temperature. This V-neck from Musto looks really smart for everyday use too.
