Edinburgh To Irvine (Coast To Coast)

Q. I am interested in walking accross the UK and Edinburgh to Irvine seems to be the shortest distance (about 90km). What maps should I get to help work out a suitable walking route, and what waypoint data files would be appropriate to load into the GPS. Also, would it be too cold/ hazardous etc to do this walk in April 2009.

A. I think you'll need the following Landranger maps: 65, 66, 70, 71, 72, and 73 . It shouldn't be too hazardous in April, although you could get short spells of snowy weather. On the other hand, you might get blazing sunshine. Expect temperatures to be around 10C to 14C and it'll probably be windy and showery. Just take the right clothing!
