Even though it's been quite dry, many parts were extremely sodden and muddy, and some of it was more like a ploughed field than a path. A route only to be taken in extreme drought conditions.
The instructions in the book were also useless and some of the footpaths we tried to take have 'mysteriously' disappeared near farms. Only met two couples on the way round, they were both lost as well.
