Yes, good luck. You must let us know how you get on. I have decided to give it a miss for this year, given the general lack of response. I think you will be in for a quiet couple of weeks - so enjoy. I'm off up to the Highlands in the motorhome to do some hill walking - easier to escape the midges!!
I may try SUW next year, if I can summon the motivation. It's the SUW 21st anniversary this year, apparently, so maybe there will be more traffic?
Thanks Paddy, I hadn't actually thought of that method of approaching a long distance walk - although studying the train times and prices from Stafford, where I live, to Srtanraer, I doesn't look as bad as first impressions imply!
Thanks for the info on websites etc, Jenny, I have actually had a good trawl around and downloaded the accommodation list etc, and I have no problem with those aspects. I was just wondering really, whether the route gets much traffic and if Im going to see other people in the evenings etc, or if the overnight stays will be something like off The League of Gentlemen, if you know what I mean! "...a local shop for local people ...!"
I did Wainwright's coast to coast on my own and enjoyed it very much. There were lots doing it and there was a good cameraderie(can't spell). This seems a very different kettle of fish.
Any others have any experiences of SUW? In 21 years, there must be lots who have done it (?)
