On the first weekend of September, Japanese Outdoor masters Snow Peak brought their iconic Snow Peak Way festival to the UK for it's second year. We asked our ambassador Luke Butler to take a trip out to East Sussex to see what all the excitement was about. He's shared his take on the Snow Peak experience in our latest blog. .
We teamed up with Skye based Birch Coffee and Oat Milk supremos Minor Figures to fuel the walkers of Skye with some pour over coffee from the top of the Storr. With the help of the Snow Peak IGT setup and some hardy helpers we set up what might have been Scotland’s most remote coffee shop (even if just for a day!).
Last month we laced up our runners, slipped into some of the new 66°North running collection and took to the hills with Edinburgh based running club ‘Brae’. The new collection of trail ready kit from the Icelandic Outdoor powerhouse has now landed at Nordic Outdoor and you can learn more about what makes these styles so special on the latest Nordic Outdoor Blog.
While Scotland has some of the most exciting outdoor adventures in Europe we sometimes fail to appreciate the possibilities which lie right on our doorstep. The Seven Hills of Edinburgh however are a weekend adventure which can easily be tackled in a day and take in some of the capitals best views. We've teamed up with Adventure Patch Company to create a free Seven Hills patch which will be available in our Bruntsfield and St James Quarter stores from 19th June. .
