A guidebook covering a 1935km (1200 miles) walk the length of Britain from Land's End in Cornwall to John O'Groats in Scotland, concentrating on the 'missing links' between the main long-distance trails covered in other guidebooks, through the very best of the British countryside. The route follows paths and tracks rather than roads, and takes to the hills and wilder country whenever it can. Along the way the route uses parts of the South West Coast Path, the Offa's Dyke Path, the Pennine Way and the West Highland Way, all established long-distance walking trails.
The other 60% of the route is fully covered by detailed route descriptions and maps, and many practical variations on the route are outlined as well. The route is divided into 61 days averaging just less than 32km (20 miles) each and the guide includes preparation and safety suggestions and information about accommodation and services. This is the ideal planning tool and route companion for anyone undertaking this epic walk.
