Accommodation and Services:


      Your footwear should provide good ankle support with a firm sole and good grip
      Hill walking boots are strongly recommended
      Ensure laces are tied as tightly as is comfortable for extra ankle support
      If walking in summer and the ground is dry, a good pair of trainers with a thick sole and good grip may suffice and prove more comfortable
      When buying new boots, always try them on with a thick pair of woollen socks
      Check if there is enough room in the boot by sliding your index
    finger down behind your heel and wiggling your toes
      Adjust the lacing to hold the boot rigid
