Eurovelo 1 enters England at Plymouth, following the stunning Devon Coast to Coast route (National Route 27). Largely tracing the course of former railway lines, the route takes you through tunnels and across the breathtaking viaducts and bridges bequeathed by Victorian railway engineers. It continues through Exmoor National Park to Bristol to Wales, where it joins the Celtic Trail along the Welsh coast to Fishguard, Pembrokeshire. The route visits Ireland and then continues across Northern Ireland (Lough Neagh) where a ferry from Belfast takes you to the Scottish coasts. Following the Lochs and Glenns Route you will pass through Loch Lomond National Park and Cairngorms National Park to Inverness, along the north Scottish coast to Aberdeen.
