With these walks I will be crowdfunding for the Scottish Society For Prevention Of Cruelty To Animals.
You can help raise money for this great cause by donating directly to the fundraising page: The Romans Walls for Animal Welfare (SPCA): https://www.justgiving.com/jeromeblanes1

B&B's that cancel your bookings! Beware!

7 weeks and 4 days before I walk in the footsteps of the Romans along Hadrian's wall.
Of all the hotels and B&Bs I booked for both walks (Hadrian's wall and the Antonine wall) two have cancelled and I had to find other accommodation. This is definitely something you have to be ready for when you are planning a hike. It's not just inconvenient, it also adds to your spending. The closer you get to the date, the more expensive hotels and B&Bs will get.
