Largely tracing the course of former railway lines, the English section of EuroVelo 1 takes you across the breathtaking viaducts and bridges bequeathed by Victorian railway engineers, passing through tunnels carved under the hills of Britannia. It continues through Exmoor National Park to Bristol and Wales, where it joins the Celtic Trail along the Welsh coast to Fishguard, Pembrokeshire. The route visits the island of Ireland and then returns across the Irish sea, to the Scottish coasts. Following the Lochs and Glenns Route you will pass through Loch Lomond National Park and Cairngorms National Park to Inverness, along the north Scottish coast to Aberdeen.
