Frequently Asked Questions
I would like to do a long-distance trail in Britain. It’s my first time. How should I go about it?
Britain has a great choice of long-distance trails, nearly all with great facilities and services such as load-carrying on the main trails. So long as you are fit, all trails are possible. Some trails are National Trails, some are regional.
The Speyside Way is a varied trail that includes some easy, low level walking. The Great Glen Way is mostly an easy, low-level trail with gentle uplands towards the end. For information about all of the UK's 19 National Trails, check our Paddy Dillon's guide The National Trails.
So (1) select a trek and (2) plan the stages and (3) go!
