Mrs Uncle Phil and I need ideas, and I, at least, need inspiration. We're looking for a touring destination for a little later this summer. She is currently working in central Ireland, so Ireland is a possibility. The thing is, I've been looking at maps and touring blogs and so on, and there are various circular tours in Ireland, UK, western Europe and so on, but nothing that grabs me - yet. I think we need something with an element of challenge in it. I think we'll get bored if we don't have some definite target in view, and not just returning to our starting point. Something like LEJOG (but we've done that.. and Dover - Cape Wrath doesn't appeal much). It needs to be about the same length, maybe 1000 or so miles, and not too far away from Blighty. Or even in it. I quite fancy up the west coast of Scotland and back via many of the Hebrides, but I don't fancy the midges that will just be getting going now... Ideas, please?
