UK and Ireland

The United Kingdom (including England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland) as well as Ireland may be soggy for much of the year but these countries sure offer amazing long distance hikes – often with baggage services available so you need only carry a day pack. Examples include the Kerry Way and Dingle Way in Ireland, the West Highland Way in Scotland and the Coast to Coast walk in England. In Scotland 282 Munroes – mountains that are 3,000 feet or higher – are waiting to be bagged. And the biking is great except in Ireland where roads are narrow and the people behind the wheel think they’re racing car drivers.
