A long walk…

I had a relatively simple premise- to walk from the most southerly point on mainland Great Britain to the most westerly, finishing at the most northerly. In other words, Three Points of the Compass. For good measure I decided I would take in Land’s End and John O’Groats too.

My Three Points of the Compass hike was in 2018. Having walked all of the South West Coast Path, Offa’s Dyke, Pennine Way, West Highland Way and the Cape Wrath Trail, plus the hundreds of miles between these, I completed this ‘LEJOG+‘ walk 152 days later at Duncansby Head, the most north-easterly point of mainland Great Britain. I had walked over 2500 miles and it was a fantastic experience. There is a summary of that walk here.

My long walks continued, and some of those trails are covered on these pages. Beside these and some other thoughts, I have a little knife chat, which looks at knife and smaller multi-tool options on trail, also a bit of gear talk (we all like that…) plus anything else I decide to ramble on about. These last may be worth a glance perhaps. Links for these are in Ramblings

Over forty Three Points of the Compass podcasts are also available to listen to, covering walks on a variety of trails. Also covering various other outdoor and walking related subjects. These can be listened to via Anchor and other podcast sites.
