This guidebook to UK's ultimate challenge walk, the End to End, describes a 1956km (1215 mile) walking route from Land's End in Cornwall to John o' Groats in Scotland's far north - the two points on mainland Britain that are the furthest apart. The recommended route avoids road walking as much as possible and frequently takes advantage of existing long-distance trails, including the South West Coast Path, Pennine Way and West Highland Way. Passing through remote terrain at times and keeping to the hills where practical, it is intended for experienced hill-walkers. The guide includes route description and maps, concentrating on the 'gaps' between the major long-distance trails covered in other Cicerone guides. There is also a wealth of advice to help you prepare for and undertake your walk, covering equipment, safety, supplies and facilities. Notes on history, geography and local sights, along with anecdotes from those who have successfully completed the journey, add interest and inspiration. The route is presented in 61 daily stages (each averaging around 32km), divided into 6 sections; an alternative three-month schedule is also provided. The End to End Trail promises a magnificent adventure through some of the best the British countryside can offer, and a unique sense of achievement on completion of your walk.

There are still wild places out there on our crowded planet. Through a series of personal journeys, Dan Richards explores the appeal of far-flung outposts in mountains, tundra, forests, oceans and deserts. Following a route from the Cairngorms of Scotland to the fire-watch lookouts of Washington State; from Iceland’s ‘Houses of Joy’ to the Utah desert; frozen ghost towns in Svalbard to shrines in Japan; Roald Dahl’s writing hut to a lighthouse in the North Atlantic, Richards explores landscapes which have inspired writers, artists and musicians, and asks: why are we drawn to wilderness? What can we do to protect them? And what does the future hold for outposts on the edge?

This book looks at the evolution of rural settlement in Scotland from the Mesolithic period through to the improving movement of the 18th and 19th centuries. The main emphasis is on changes in society and technology, but the book also considers how the development of the physical landscape laid the foundation for such changes. The author strikes a balance between general perspectives (including relevant contextual materials such as the political structures) and local studies, with much emphasis on individual sites. Lack of documentation prior to the 10th century places particular importance on the archaeological evidence, but imaginative interpretation of this evidence has led to a major re-evaluation. Ideas emphasizing continuity of settlement and local adaptation are replacing older ’invasionist’ theories emphasizing Celtic war lords and broch-building pirates.
