A few samples of my published work
Hi. I'm James Forrest, aka 'Mountain Man' (as the Sunday Telegraph nicknamed me). I used to live in a city and work in an office - and I was fed up. So over the past few years I've been on a crazy mission to make my life more adventurous; to explore the great outdoors; and to climb as many mountains as possible!
In 2015 I walked all 214 'Wainwrights' in the Lake District. In 2016 I quit my job to go hiking in Australasia. And in 2017 I set a new record by climbing all 446 mountains in England and Wales in just 6 months - the fastest ever time. Check out social media for my upcoming epic adventures.
I'm a former newspaper reporter turned award-winning adventure travel and outdoors writer. My words and pictures have been published in magazines including Adventure Travel, Trail, The Great Outdoors, Outdoor Enthusiast, Lakeland Walker, Cumbria and Sidetracked.
