We walked the West Highland Way recently over 6 days in glorious weather. I've posted a pictorial record of the trip on YouTube - see [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GLNL-lV2sbg[/youtube]- and we also blogged as we walked - see http://two-men.posterous.com/

The blog appears a bit disjointed as my co-walker Paul got a bit behind at some points. Also I apologise for the backing music on the YouTube clip - they wouldn't let me use my preferred choices for copyright reasons.

However these sources provide a good picture of our WHW experience and hopefully will be of interest to anyone planning their walk or to others wishing to reminisce about theirs. It was a great experience and I will be back, although I don't suppose I'll ever get such good weather again.

Cheers

Nice vid Andy.... don't think there has even been a better spell of weather to do the walk :D

Your report (and any others) now appears on our West Highland Way page. You can mark that you have done the route on our new long distance routes page too.
