A few weeks ago I mentioned that my friend Chris (@PilgrimChris) and I would be walking the Cape Wrath Trail in Scotland. It is a stunning route starting in Fort William which weaves its way up to the most north western tip of Scotland at the Cape itself. As things often do in life, plans change, new ideas form and opportunities present themselves. So I’m writing this post to say that this coming April, Chris and I will be tackling the Pennine Way. Many reasons have promoted us to decide to postpone the CWT adventure and hopefully I’ll be able to share more very soon.
The Pennine Way is a route that I always knew that I would like to do, I’ve walked sections of it in the past and thought that it would be great to tackle it in its entirety. The route meanders 268 miles from Edale in the Peak District, via the Yorkshire Dales, Hadrian’s Wall, Northumberland and then finishes at Kirk Yetholm in the Scottish Borders. Obviously I’m a sucker for the Peak District, the Dark Peak has become a firm favourite for my walks and it will be great to set off from a familiar place. Another one of the reasons why I thought I’d love to do the PW is due to my recent holiday in Edinburgh, we drove up past Hadrian’s Wall and through Northumberland. It looks like a stunning area I can’t wait to walk there and to learn more along the way.
Chris and I are keen advocates of ShareYourAdventure.com and the journey along the Pennine Way will be a very social event. It would be great if people would like to meet up along the way to walk with us, you could even join us for a wild camp if you so wish. If you can’t spare the time or don’t fancy a walk then why not just meet us to say hello.
We will be Sharing Our Adventure in many ways, via this Blog, on ShareYourAdventure.com, twitter, Google+, AudioBoo and YouTube. We hope to make this journey as media rich as possible and look forward to taking you along with us in spirit or even in person. More info will be coming very soon about where we will be at particular times, so if you fancy meeting up for a walk, a chat or a drink then give us a shout 🙂
