Directions For Walks

The route ideas we suggest on our site differ from other websites: we don't go for the "pass-the-small-rock-on-your-left" level of detail. Instead we have suggested start and finish points for all our walks (bus stops or stations) and a few Waypoints to give an idea of suggested place to visit enroute. We prefer this approach as it means people can make their own minds up about the detail.
