how do you define the 4 corners?
Does it inc N.Ireland?
or do you mean N.E & N.W scotland and S.E & S.W england
try www.endtoenders.co.uk for the John O`Groats to L/End bits

Did it on an MZ in '79. Happy days...

Don't forget that Ardnamurchan is actually further West than Lands End.

To be accurate it should be Lizard, Ardnamurchan, John O Groats, Lowestoft...

Why not take in Cape Wrath as well?

Did I agree, after too uch cider on saturday night, to do this with you guys on Paul's Bandit?
Or was that just a bad dream?........
I am well up for it Keith, just not sure I can go without cider for that long! But I will give it a go.............

And sorry for the early morning knocking on your van in the very early hours of Sunday morning (5am to be exact!) as we staggered out of the barn.........we wanted a cuppa!

And Lizard Point is further south than Lands End. Lands End and John O'Groats are the two points furthest apart on mainland Britain.

You could always make it the six points run
