There are still wild places on our over-crowded planet. But for many who go in search of isolation, silence and adventure in wild places it is - perhaps ironically - to the man-made shelters they head: bothies, bivouacs, cabins and huts. Part of their allure is their simplicity: enough architecture to shelter from the weather but not so much as to distract from their setting. From the Cairngorms to Washington state and New Mexico to Svalbard, Dan Richards explores the romantic appeal of the wilderness.
