Big Trails: Great Britain & Ireland features 25 long-distance trails in England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and Ireland, and includes a general overview of the trails, specific technical information, overview mapping, key information and stunning photography.

Big Trails: Great Britain & Ireland is an inspirational guide to the most iconic, spectacular and popular long-distance trails in England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, Ireland and the Isle of Man. The twenty-five featured routes will take you across the best of the British Isles. From the South Downs Way in South-East England and across Wales's mountains in the Cambrian Way, the book delves into the heart of Scotland on the West Highland Way, along the Causeway Coast Way on Northern Ireland’s coast, and into southern Ireland on the Beara Way. The book is designed to inspire big adventures. Rather than being carried along the route, this guide provides everything you need to plan and explore further, including a general overview of the trails, specific technical information, overview mapping, key information and stunning photography. As well as this, each route specifies approximate timings devised using the Jones–Ross formula, which allows for custom itineraries to be generated depending upon the speed of the user. Whether you’re walking, trekking, fastpacking or running, let Big Trails: Great Britain & Ireland be your guide.
