Route

The following is a rough plan. Timings and even destinations are at the mercy of many variables; weather, season (ferry availability), health, life events (Wedding invitations) as well as safety factors (extreme weather etc.).

David will also be taking rest days as and when he needs them and will also be arranging shifts in branch which is going to extend the ending of the walk. We expect the whole walk to take about two years…but it isn’t a race!
