Pieter,

Offa's Dyke is one of the few long distance trails I haven't done and its perhaps due to my doubts about the route.I have walked odd bits of it but didn't really find it inspiring.Here again a lot of people say the Pennine Way is boring but I prefer it to the Coast to Coast due to it being more isolated.Its true that the coast to coast is popular and people do the walk to brag about it.But people like these are in the minority.Most do it because its a good walk and passes through such varied scenery.

There's a chance of walking Offa's Dyke and not meeting many walkers.On the coast to coast you will meet plenty of other walkers.


Have a look at this website.This guy has done both OD and C to C so it might be worth taking notice of his comments.He's also done the Cambrian Way which is perhaps the toughest walk in the country.
