NE Duncansby Head NW Cape Wrath

The journey to these two sharp corners will start on Monday 30th April 2018 . However, rather than walk up the whole of England and Scotland I am joining my paths to these corners to the “virtual” one I made in 2012/3. Initially therefore I fly from Bristol to Inverness, stay the night there and on 1st May catch the train to Thurso and then start the walking. See below
