McConnell’s Mighty Seven

You men usually be forgotten about when it comes to these blogs, so hold tight as this one is for you! Keeping with the theme of the snowy, wet weather that doesn’t seem to be shifting, I have rummaged through our shelves and pulled out our water resistant and waterproof shoes. Not only are these great for this time of year, they will carry you right through spring/summer and autumn too if you are a walking fan – whether it be hill walking, forest walking or simply taking the dogs up the street.
