Also worth saying we don't have the equivalent of public footpaths over farmland or 'right to roam'. Generally, for walks, there will be set tracks (some of which are stunningly beautiful). Some are suitable for a stroll - many are backpack and sleeping overnight in huts jobs.
I must say one of the things I miss here is the gentle strolls through UK farmland on a Sunday afternoon.
