Stephen from Antrim
Did most of this last year. Pros are you get some stunning scenery on mostly empty (and safe) roads. Cons are it can be quite hilly, especially of you are shifting a few full paniers, and about a quarter of the total road surface is really quite rough. But overall if you get decent weather this is a great trip.
