I will be travelling to Donegal in a few weeks time and am looking for tips both on hiking trails and camping spots.
I would like to have one or two nights of wild camping. I know Ireland can be a little tricky for wild camping in some areas, so I would love to hear feedback from anyone who has wildcamped in Donegal.

Recommendations for hiking trails would also be great.
I would like to hike for perhaps 3 consecutive days and be able to wild camp (or camp at designated campsites) along the way.
Anyone done any hiking trails in Donegal?

PS, I don`t have a car. I might rent a bike some of the time, but am mainly planning on hiking. So start of hiking trails would preferably have to be within walking distance of villages or public transport routes.

Thanks!

New to the forum, and new to kayak touring. I have been kayaking on rivers and canals for many years. I have purchased a decent touring kayak suitable for sea touring. My plan is to take 3 days on the coast around Cornwall and camp on the beach without getting yobs stealing my kayak or peeing on my tent. I was wondering if anyone has ever done this kind of trip before? Anyone know the legalities of camping on the beach (ensuring I take all my rubbish away of course), legalities on kayaking on the sea, if there are any secluded beaches to aim for where I am not going to get any bother? and finally a safe place to park my car that isn't too far from a beach to start my trip? I plan to travel light and spend approx 6 hours travelling to a camping location, then 6 hours back the next day. Giving me a day buffer for anything unexpected. Thank you for anyone who can offer any advice at all!

Hello,
Has anyone stayed in their camper-van or motor-home in Harwich port recently? We have an early ferry to catch and would like to stay over the night before.

Thanks.

Hi guys. I’m from Australia and my husband is from England. We have a baby together and are looking at going back to the UK together. The only issue is 15 months ago I got a drink driving conviction. This was non custodial and resulted in loss of licence and a fine. Now my question is basically does anyone know or has anyone been in this situation and if this will cause my visa to be rejected. I have seen online that it may be okay after 12 months of a conviction but I’m worried it will fall under conviction causing serious harm? I didn’t hurt anyone but drink driving could of caused harm? So I don’t know if they look at it like that? Any help would be appreciated! Thank you!

Hi to everybody,
Just a tip:
I’ll stay one week in August in Edimburgh. I was planning to hire a car and go somewhere, I would prefer cliffs, harbours, lighthouses, and/or higlands.
Since I can stay only one night outside Edimburgh, where do you suggest to go whitin 3-4 hours by car?
Probably Skye Islands are to far (5-6 hours)
Thanks

Hi and greeting from Yangon, Myanmar !

I am going to Ireland for my 6-month temporary contract with employment visa and wondering if I can travel just with one-way flight ticket. I can prove of buying onward ticket with my bank statement and employee letter which mention the amount of salary in there.

It would be great if anyone could share some similar experience ! Thank you !

Best regards,
Hlawn

Any one know if The Ashes (cricket) will be screened in public viewing areas like a park - tickets to Lords game (14 to 17 August) are sold out. Henman Hill for Wimbledon springs to mind - something similar?

Me and my girlfriend are going to the UK in mid August and we fly to and from London, but we would like to see some nice things in the Midlands or maybe up to the north as well. We have bought a BritRail pass for 8 days (flex ticket) so we will try to find some nice cities or villages or whatever people recommend. We are born in the 60s.
Usually we like to walk around in nice cities and like nice food and beautiful sights.

Usually we don't go to museums and things like that (but of course it happens if we like what they have), but just being in a nice place and relax is probably what we are looking for this time.

I guess we will spend a night here and there and maybe jump off the train if we stop at something that looks nice. So, if anyone can give us a hint on what we should see and if it's a place we can reach by train, that's even better of course.
Two years ago we rented a canal boat in Wales and that was awesome. Three years ago we rented a car and went from London to Bristol and Bath and then down to Cornwall and back to London. And last year we had a weekend in Edinburgh, so we thought it's time for the Midlands and north this time, but we have no idea where we should go.

Anyone?

I plan on taking the train from London to Gatwick. When I arrive at the train station at Gatwick, how long does it take to get to the North Terminal? I've learned the hard way that sometimes there is quite a walk involved. Want to make sure I leave enough time.

I will be sailing my yacht from Killybegs down the west coast around july 18./19. and could do with some company. I have one guest room w. double bed available. No previous sailing experience required. Hoping to do 5-10 h of sailing per day depending on harbour availability.

Feel free to drop me a line if that could be of interest oyvindhaugseth@gmail.com
