A cape to cape WALK

A 1250 mile backpacking adventure through Britain ...

On a late April morning, lover of landscapes John Sutcliffe sets out on a backpacking trek to celebrate his approaching 70th birthday, from Cape Cornwall in South West England to the remote Cape Wrath on the north-westerly tip of Scotland.

Choosing the remote North-West cape, rather than the more usual and accessible Lands End to John o' Groats end to end route, the author describes his journey, encompassing the wildest and more remote parts of Britain. Cornwall’s cliffs and the moors of Devon give way to the Welsh Borders and the Derbyshire Dales, with the 250 mile-long Pennine Way taking him over onto the Scottish Borders. The walk ends with 250 miles of the stunning, ‘dare to imagine’ North West Highlands of Scotland before journey’s end at Cape Wrath.
