Christian Lewis had hit rock bottom, suffering with depression so severe he would shut himself in his bedroom for weeks. In August 2017, while surfing - his only respite - he cast his eyes along the coastline and realised it was the only place he really wanted to be. Making an impulsive decision to walk the entire coastline of the UK, he spent just a few days rustling up a tent and walking boots then left for good with just a tenner in his pocket and two days' worth of food. Little did he know just how long it would take to cross the finish line - and the encounters that lay ahead that would turn his life around. Five years later, he has walked the West Coast, Northern Ireland, the hard-rock cliffs of Scotland and the perimeters of the Scottish Islands. He spent three months on an uninhabited island called Hildasay, where there was no fresh water or food. Happiness and hope was just around the corner.
