Around Loch Ness in 6 days

The day wild camping is allowed in Scotland again on 16th July 2020 is the day I head up to the Highlands for my next long-distance adventure! My kid will be staying with family in Drumnadrochit, so that’s where I’m starting and ending my walk. DAY 1 : Drumnadrochit to Inverness , or So It Begins &a...

Re: John Muir Way east to west: A work in progress

Thank you, Gordie!

There are a few sections I quite look forward to. And I'm getting excited about autumn walking (my second favourite season after spring). :D

John Muir Way east to west: A work in progress

I’m walking the John Muir Way one day at a time, making use of public transport to and from Edinburgh. I will be updating this post whenever I complete another stage. I decided to walk the route from east to west – in my brain starting from John Muir’s birthplace and walking towards America makes se...

Re: Kneedeep in a bog & high on heights: Cowal Way & the Cob

Hey, I'm sorry - I didn't have comment notifications ticked for this post and missed your question! I don't have the means to weigh my bag, so can't say how much the total weight is. Anyway, my one-season (Terra Hiker) sleeping bag weighs < 900 g, and my (OutdoorGear backpacker) tent 1.3 kg. Both ar...

Scotland's bonniest glen? 3 days on the Affric Kintail Way

Apparently Glen Affric is the most beautiful glen in Scotland. Naturally, I need to go and see this for myself, and what better way to do it than walk the Affric Kintail Way? A lot of wise people here on walkhighlands have recommended skipping the first part of the AKW, but me being me, I feel like ...

Re: The 'Frog' Roy Way - A 6-day solo hike

Have read all the reports and they are excellent but yours is the most recent - I walked from Aberfeldy to Pitlochry in the summer and couldn’t understand for the life of me why that section was so overgrown alongside the river en route to Grandtully. I literally didn’t think there was a path and t...

Re: The 'Frog' Roy Way - A 6-day solo hike

You can read all about it (Day 4). https://www.walkhighlands.co.uk/Forum/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=52019 Out of curiosity, what camera did you use on this trip (your photos look really sharp)? I should point out I have had no problem with "birds" for 3 years now :lol: :lol: :lol: Took all t...

Re: The 'Frog' Roy Way - A 6-day solo hike

Hi Some great photos in your report. I did this walk 3 years ago and really enjoyed it (apart from having a fight with a grouse but that's another story). Chose to do the slightly longer route round by Amulree and really enjoyed it so hopefully you will to if you decide to head back. Thank you. :) ...

The 'Frog' Roy Way - A 6-day solo hike

Time to get ready for my annual long-distance hike again. This year I'm going to walk the Rob Roy Way. The weather forecast promises nothing but sunshine all week, but this is Scotland, so I pack my waterproofs and layers anyway. At the last moment I chuck in a summer dress too - if it's really goin...

Re: Kneedeep in a bog & high on heights: Cowal Way & the Cob

Hi there, a very enjoyable report which I thoroughly enjoyed reading :) . This is a walk I am considering doing next year. I take it you took your own food with you for the duration? Are there many places to enjoy pub grub or town/villages to replenish supplies? Once again an excellent report with ...

Kneedeep in a bog & high on heights: Cowal Way & the Cobbler

After walking the WHW last year, I promised myself I'd go for a long-distance hike every year, if possible. This year I was drawn to the Cowal Way. When I realised that I was going to be walking solo (not the original plan), I decided to go for the budget option of wild camping – despite my back-des...

A very windy April day on John Buchan Way

I wanted to go on a hike that I could complete in a day and that was also easy to get to by public transport from Edinburgh. John Buchan Way was just perfect. The most memorable elements of my walk were the Strong Winds (!), the adorable lambs, the very characterful trees and the bright yellow daffo...
