WHW - Arranging my own trip or buying one?

Date walked: 07/03/2011

Hi all

I am right now planning my trip up the highlands on the WHW, but I have my doubts. I can get a package with accommodation and bag carrying at about 500 pounds (9 days). As I think this is rather pricey when I also have to spend a reasonable sum of money on train fare I ask you; can I arrange the trip (with 2-3 nights in a tent instead of hostel, and then the rest in hostels) cheaper myself?
