It’s stuff that we have unique discounts for, that we recommend or that if you purchase we both get a discount! We don’t recommend stuff just for money. If it’s ‘no good’ you won’t find it here. These apps or kit items or services are all used by Andy, the owner of Wales Outdoors, on a regular basis. He personally recommends them!

SkyMap – It tells you where the stars are

Insurance
