Who knew Scotland was a tropical country?! ☀️☀️☀️ 18/282 Munros now climbed 🙌

Little me vs big mountains! 10/282 Munros now done 🙌

Woke up on the side of a Scottish mountain today 😍 . . . Epic sunrise this morning near Stob Daimh, after a great night's sleep in our @terranovaequipment Laser Compact Two. 5/282 Munro's now bagged. Nice little start. Scotland has been looking magnificent ❤️

Rain, wind, cloud...but who cares?! 1/282 Munros climbed. Ben More on the Isle of Mull is in the bag! 🙌

The other day in the Lakes - mesmerising, right?! 🙌

I still have to pinch myself that I'm able to live such an epic, adventurous, happy life 😀😀😀 . . . I feel like the past month has gone crazy for me. Still can't quite believe it all - but it makes me so, so happy. My book is out soon, I quit my day job in favour of outdoors writing, I've been working as an "influencer" (wtf!), press trip invitations are landing in my inbox, I was followed around the Lakes for 3 days by two cameramen, a photographer and a producer (haha!), and I've got some big adventures in the pipeline. But, at the same time, I've worked really, really hard over the past 8 years (yes 8!) to try and make this a reality. So I've put in the graft too, I think. I still feel super lucky and grateful though. And I can't wait to see what the future holds. Thanks for all of the support everyone 🙌

Oh my word! The Lakes has been looking spectacular these last few days 😍 . . . I've been out filming in the Lake District for the past 3 days on a really exciting project, with an epic crew. Can't wait to see the finished product. Especially after Lakeland was looking so majestic in the sunshine! ❤️

Back in the Lakes today - and it felt epic 😍

Those views 😍

Oh my, this view made my soul sing ♥️ . . . Headed out to the fells in the Lakes for an impromptu wild camp the other day. Such amazing weather! And that view over Crummock Water was like paradise. I love this place so much 😍 . . . If you fancy expanding your wild camping equipment, I've got a Food Flask from @yourshonline to give away. It can be used to keep food both hot and cold. See my story for more details. Just another JMF gift for my beloved followers. Haha. Just call me the Robin Hood of Instagram, giving away all my freebies. Haha 😀👍

Would you walk this path? 😱 . . . Had a great day today scrambling up Hall's Fell ridge and down Sharp Edge, during my trip to see the stone circle trig being reinstalled on Blencathra. An epic little adventure. . . . Massive respect to @robustours for organising the re-crowning of Blencathra. Great job buddy. You did a good thing and pulled off a great event. Congrats 🙌

Last night in the Lake District ♥️

Wild camping in Buttermere yesterday evening 😍 . . . After a mad, hectic few days, I decided I needed a digital detox. So I turned off my phone and headed for the hills. Buttermere was looking spectacular in the sunshine. . . . Thanks to @nimbobottles for the bottle I'm sipping on in this shot. Not a bad spot for a drinks break 🙌

Giving a new meaning to 'doggy bag' 😍 . . . Willow and @lauradoling with the cutest moment of yesterday's Instameet! 😍♥️🤗 . . . With @visitengland #englishtourismweek19 #mymicrogap

Today was a great day ♥️😀🙌 . . . We started as strangers; and ended as friends! So proud to have led 40 Instagrammers on a hike up Cat Bells; our very own little #mymicrogap adventure in the Lake District to celebrate #englishtourismweek19. So much fun and positivity and adventurous spirit 😍 . . . Thanks to @visitengland @lakedistrictcumbria @igersuk and @hikingthelakes for the support!

Sharing adventures = 😀♥️🙌 . . . Really looking forward to climbing Catbells tomorrow with 40 ppl from Instagram. It's gonna be epic and positive; like-minded people enjoying an adventure in the beautiful Lake District 😍 . . .
