QMD Walks are typically mountain days, and mostly and usually take in at least one summit. They often cover difficult ground and you need to be able to navigate and route find and be aware of the risk you take when walking in mountain country and/or any other country. Other walks are typically walks on Lowland and may include some Hill and Moorland.

The GPX Routes are GPX files are armchair routes and use straight lines between waymarks. All GPX routes are Indicative Only and they may not have been walked. The GPX routes are planning aides, not set routes to follow. When a GPS Track is available it is uploaded and marked as a Track but that does not mean it is suitable for anybody to walk.
