    What McCloy’s book, The Land’s End to John O’Groats Walk, makes very clear, though, is that with the proliferation of National Trails in the U.K. it’s gotten a lot easier to walk from one end of the country to the other while avoiding roads–and remember, because highways in Europe generally don’t have shoulders, it’s dangerous to.   Sometime before , when the book was first published, explorer John Hillaby set off with a backpack to walk from Land’s End to John O’Groats, preparing for his 1,mile hike across Author: Gail Simmons.

    The record for the fastest journey from Land's End to John O’Groats by electric unicycle (male) was broken ten years later by Edd Stone (UK). His journey took 11 days 19 hr 13 min from 21 June to 3 July , and he raised over £ for charity through his attempt.   In the mids, journalist John Hillaby walked across the United Kingdom, from Land's End in Cornwall to John O'Groats on the north-eastern tip of Scotland. He wasn't the first person to make this journey--according to Andrew McCloy, records of similar walks date back to the s--but in he published a book about his trip, Journey.

    The Andy Robinson Cicerone book 'End to End Trail: Land's End to John O'Groats on Foot' provides off-road options for walkers in outline, mainly using named long distance paths (LDPs) but including descriptions of linking sections not on LDPs.   Take JoGLE [John o’Groats to Land’s End], for example. If you set off expecting three months of jolly jaunts through the British countryside, then you’re going to be sorely disappointed.
