Ticket to Stride

Trail Magazine, one of the UK's best outdoor publications, has featured MunrOverground in its May 2012 issue.  After including Tubular Fells in 2011, Phoebe Smith who is Features Editor at the magazine, was keen to include the new publication which maps all 283 of Scotland's 3000 foot peaks. 
MunrOverground gets a mention in Trail
The article title is a brilliant one on pages 12 and 13 although it does include a close-up photograph of Peter! If you want to get a taste for the map before buying it, then you can see most of the detail on the two-page spread, although it is of course much smaller than the map's printed size at A1 (841mm × 594mm) poster format.  As a result of this much larger print, longer boxes have been ordered to encapsulate the bigger map.

Peter with his back to Ben NevisPeter is really pleased to see his latest creation featured in Trail Magazine which has been one of his favourite magazines for years.  The article gives a good resume of the map and also mentions the fact that proceeds from MunrOverground will be going to help The John Muir Trust and the Mountain Rescue Council of Scotland.

Let's hope we see MunrOverground in many more publications and publicity creates as much interest in the Scottish Map as we've seen over Tubular Fells.  Thanks a lot to Trail for being the first magazine to embrace the new creation!
A fight broke out after the first map arrived, so have had to buy another to keep the peace!!!
