The Route

The usual convention is to describe the route from south to north, the thinking behind this being the southern stages are easier and will prepare users for the more demanding northern stages.

Due to the  variety of distances involved, these should not be considered as a days activity.  Planning of stage lengths should be based upon ability and fitness and opportunities available to explore places of interest along the route.
