Interesting, I've always thought of Glasgow as being more difficult than 
Belfast, but never worked out why.

Do you define difficulty as difficult to strike? Or difficult to not go 

For the former changes of direction are certainly a factor, but as far as 
staying right is concerned, methods with lots of changes of direction aren't 
necessarily difficult.
