Hello everyone,

I am wanting to do Skye trail this may and have given myself 8 days and plan to go South to North. I have experience backpacking doing the West Highland Way and some trail in America and in good shape.

I have never done a trail without it being well way marked. I think I am nervous as the grade is much harder than WHW. If I have GPS, Map & compass know how to use and in good shape will I be okay?

Is Skye Trail like way way way harder than WHW or will I be able to manage. Any advice on if this feels like an extreme jump in difficulty please let me know. I really have always dreamed of going to Skye so I am doing everything I can to study maps and read about the trail.

Thanks in advance.
