Hill walking on a summer’s day
On a lovely summer’s day, many of us enjoy getting outside to partake in the bright and happy atmosphere, whether it be for lunch, drinks or a picnic in the park. It’s a great feeling to set out on a sunny day and enjoy what nature has to offer. Hill walking in particular is a very popular activity in the summertime. Many avid walkers head to the hills to enjoy a day of rambling where they can see for miles from the top of impressive munros and mountains.
People who enjoy hill walking aren’t necessarily experienced which means that accidents can and do occur when on the hills. Due to the amateur level of many hill walkers, some individuals enlist the help, support and guidance of tour guides and walking instructors. This means that walkers can be guided by a professional so that they are less likely to experience an accident. However, on not so nice days, tour guides have been known to take alternative paths which can incur injuries. In addition to accidents caused by walking guides, sign posts can also be incorrect which means you are misled, or a path may be broken which can cause a slip, trip or fall. However you have endured your accident, Accident Advice Helpline and solicitors in Penicuik should be able to help you.
