It is very important that any walkers do not rely on their GPS as their only means of navigation – that’s a great way to look really stupid when your battery goes down, or you walk off a cliff in poor visibility. These machines are no replacement for map, compass, & the knowledge of how to use them – nor for common sense regarding weather, terrain and appropriate clothing.
I strongly recommend that all users of this information, check it against a map before going anywhere. I take absolutely no responsibility for anything whatsoever which may arise from the use of this information.
Some grid references used are only accurate to 6 figures and therefore refer to the SW corner of an AREA of 100m x 100m which contains the summit. This means that the Waypoint maybe up to 142m away from the summit and still be technically correct. There are over 20,000 grid references listed on this site, I’ve checked and revised them as well as i can but there may still be errors. Feedback on inaccuracies would be appreciated, but I don’t wish to get into arguments about which peak may be the “proper” summit of anything
Phil’s Walk Routes and Trackpoint downloads
At least with these, I’ve actually been on each walk, however I still can’t guarantee that the route I may have taken followed any discernable path or right-of-way, nor avoided any bogs or crags. In fact I know they all don’t. I also can’t guarantee the accuracy of any distances and durations quoted. NOTE: I make a careful distinction between a “TRACK” as the record of a walk made in the field with a GPS unit, and a “ROUTE” which is a low resolution string of coordinates planned on a PC with mapping software in advance of the walk – by definition this is much less acurate than a GPS track.

Don’t go out wthout a map and compass and the ability to use them.
