During the last week of October 2019 i returned to Fort William, Scotland where i spent a few days prior to setting off on the 79 mile long Great Glen Way - a long distance footpath between Fort William and Inverness. The way follows one of Scotlands most significant landscape features which is effectively a glacial trough that cuts the highlands in two and connects Scotlands west and east coasts via the Caledonian canal, Loch Lochy, Loch Oich and Loch Ness. I had decided to walk the length of this route and wild camp as i went along. As the clocks had just gone back and daylight hours were short i had estimated this route would take me 4-5 days to complete carrying full gear.
Join me as i walk from one side of Scotland to the other through beautiful autumnal scenes and snow capped peaks.
