Hi everyone,

my husband and I completed the Cape Wrath Trail this summer (I wrote a report in this forum). He got hooked and went for the Scottish National Trail in September / October. There are not many SNT reports around so I thought of sharing this with you - he loves good audio and took some time to capture nature along the trail. Hope you enjoy it !



We hope to hit the trails together again next year - can't wait !

Congrats on completing the SNT. Great effort, well done. :clap:
Hope your left leg has recovered.
Looked like you got way more rain than when you did the CWT but not as many midges :)
Always forward!

Congratulations :clap:

Well done, l just watched the video and it looked physically and mentally challenging.

Back to back SNT and CWT is quite an achievement. Thoroughly enjoyed both videos with your passionate commentary.

I saw you gear review for CWT and would really love to hear the full make and model of everything you carry.

Enjoy the rest before your next adventure ❤️

Thanks so much Alba - this is actually my husband, not me but yes his leg's fully recovered :-).

Indeed, I think even for Scotland he got way more rain than expected - I was going to join him for the Cairngorms, but seeing those weather forecasts and knowing what it's like, I changed my mind and am glad I did ! And yes no midges !

Thank you so much ! Will pass on to Antonio (this is Caroline, his wife), also about the gear review. He did one for the CWT and I don't remember it being very different to what he carried this time, other than that he 'borrowed' my sleeping bag half way through because it got too cold in the quilt + I sent him his Rab Neutrino in exchange for his Microlight. I think he was a tad too optimistic when he started in the sunny Scottish Border region :lol:

I already have ideas for a thru-hike next year - I hope it'll be possible: It'll be rather unique and I think people would love it (as will we for sure :-) ❤️)
