I have done my own rough itinery for 13 days. Cant find anywhere out there though that suggests an itinery which takes less than about 16 days to complete. Has anyone got a preferred itinery within the 10 to 14 day range. I will be staying in B and B every night. I really want to take in the bowes loop and stop the night at the Unicorn Inn if possible. Has anyone ever tried Bowes to Dufton in 1 day.

Most books tend to be very conservative when suggesting how long the walk will take.Its within the capacity of most experienced(say one or two previous LDP) walkers to complete the route within 14 days.

I would suggest the following scehdule.

Edale to Crowden.15m

Crowden to Whitehouse.19m

Whitehouse to Withins 19m

Whitehouse to Malham 25m

Malham to Horton 15m

Horton to Muker 26m

Muker to Middleton 23m

Middlton to Dufton 21m

Dufton to Alston 20m

Alston to Greenhead 20m

Greenhead to Bellingham 23m

Bellingham to Bryness 16m

Bryness to Kirk Yetholm 30m

I used this schedule one year when I was pushed for time and Edale to Crowden was done in the evening after getting off the train.It was early July so it was light until 11pm.

I've managed Highcup to Keld in a day but it was a very hard walk that left me drained the next day.On any LDP you have to conserve energy and its best not to go beyond your limit.Don't forget that after Dufton comes one of the hardest days so its best to have some fuel left in the tank.
