Only 874 miles to John O'Groats? As the crow flies? By road? On foot? I couldn't find out which.
Not the way I walked. There's a price to pay to go the most attractive way, and to use the major long-distance national trails for as much of the trip as possible.
As it turned out, the total distance was over 1,300 miles. That included a few mistakes, but essentially was just because I didn't go by the most direct route.
It was still only half-light when I took the Land's End picture. But it was sunny for the photograph at the other end three years later.
