Visiting Scotland!


Postby otisorgans » Fri Mar 06, 2020 6:06 pm

Hello All! I am a 50 + year old American who loves to do long distance treking. I have completed the Camino Frances and the Camino Portuguese. I have heard so many wonderful things about Scotland that this is next on my bucket list. I am sure there is information in other forums but I am looking for advice on where to hike. I know there are a lot of companies that book trips but I prefer to make my own arrangements. I have about 12 days of hiking and my schedule is flexible between late April through the end of May. I don't want to camp and would prefer hostels or B@B's. I looked at the West Highland Way but accommodations are hard to come by. I hike with either my wife or my best friend when I do these trips. This year it will be with my friend as my wife will be home with my high school daughter. I prefer to do about 13-15 miles per day (20 K) and I am a walker not a hiker so I prefer not to climb up mountains! As of right now I am looking at a combination of Ayrshire Coastal Walk then to the Rob Roy Way. If there are better suggestions please let me know. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Cateran Way may also fit in?
