West Highland Way

A few pics and a wee video from our mini adventure:


We set off from just outside Glasgow

My 2 brothers David and Jim

After a steady days walking we hit Conic Hill on the way to Balmaha

Coming down the other side was pretty rough in the rain however we managed it

Loch Lomond side was tough but lovely

Ever onwards

Rannoch Moor

Buachaille Etive Mor

The Kingshouse Hotel

Through the hills to Kinlochleven

Leaving Kinlochleven 

Almost finished, Ben Nevis in the background

All finished in the town centre

Cheers Ray, the pain was worth it. A bit of s cheat as I had done it 20 years ago so the route was still in my mind so didn't hold any nasty surprises even at my age and poor fitness.

I wish I was Fran, we kept end a steady pace, 6 days for 96 miles with a few wee hills thrown in. Plenty of food and beer. None of that carrying tents nonsense this time. Quality accommodation most nights!
