Three Points of the Compass does like to get his teeth into a decent length of trail when he can. Not all of these are the official long-distance ‘National Trails’ in England, Wales and Scotland however. But it is my aim to slowly work through as many of those over time. Twelve completed to date, however I doubt I’ll ever knock them all off.
Below are a handful of links to a few blogs I’ve written of just a few of my hikes- including a little on gear, food and water sources etc.
A hike across mainland Britain
- My 2018 Three Points of the Compass walk, across England, Wales and Scotland, took in the furthest mainland compass points South, South West, West, North West, North and North East, I also walked Lands End to John O’Groats within this longer hike. Some longer trails were included in this- South West Coast Path, Offas Dyke Path. Pennine Way, West Highland Way and the Cape Wrath Trail.
