Re: West Highland Way alternative routes (3-12 May & 17/18 M

When I complete the WHW I will take a day of rest and climb Ben Nevis, weather permitting, then I will start the Great Glen Way - just finished reading your report - I have a bit further to travel...

Re: The West Highland Way in May using alternative routes

This sounds so cool! I just got back from the WHW (Traditional route) and whereas I absolutely loved most of it, I would have been glad of a few different routes to get me away from things - I still felt awfully close to civilisation for most of it.

Re: The West Highland Way in May using alternative routes

Hi Michael, Are you also going by the "Not the West Highland Way" book? I did the West Highland Way the normal route last year, it took us 7 days and that is without any munro bagging, so I figure the only way to fit Munro bagging into the schedule is to take the High roads described in R...

Re: The West Highland Way in May using alternative routes

Re: New Member from Eastern US

Hello, I found this site during a search for lodging in Scotland. Having followed it for several months I've joined. While I'm not an avid walker, I hope to change that. There are several trails throughout the Eastern US but I hope to one day return to Scotland, visit Mull and walk a trail or two. ...

Re: WHW in May

Planning to do a solo WHW in May 14. Looking at wild camping from day 2 onwards, subject to the weather. Will I need to book B&B before I start for days 1 and 2 or will the route be not so busy then? Also if the weather is bad further on, is B&B easy enough to get on spec, if I can wild cam...
