- Always bring a waterproof jacket
- Wear walking boots or shoes suitable for use on rough ground
- Bring plenty of food and liquids
- Additional items you might need for walking in the hills:
- Map and compass, with the ability to use them
- Warm clothing, plus a hat and gloves are essential all year round
- A sun hat to protect you from strong sun
- Waterproof overtrousers, a torch, whistle, personal first aid kit, survival bag and high energy food are also important

- NB. Jeans are not usually good walking gear. They are heavy, become even heavier when wet, and become uncomfortable. For easy walks sports trouser or light walking trousers are best
