Kinlochleven to Fort William

The final leg of Tara and Scott’s West Highland Way adventure was the 14 mile stretch from Kinlochleven to Fort William. They set out on day 7 with a long, hot and humid climb out of Kinlochleven on a narrow winding trail through birch woods. At lower level the midges were out and Tara and…

Kingshouse to Kinlochleven

Kingshouse to Kinlochleven was the aim for Tara and Scott on day 6 of their West Highland Way walking holiday. The day began cloudy with the occasional spot of rain which never really materialised, so once again, Tara and Scott were lucky enough to leave their waterproofs in their rucksacks. The walk started parallel to the road and in…

Inverarnan to Bridge of Orchy

Day 4,  Inverarnan to Bridge of Orchy was 19 miles for Scott yet only 12 for Tara as she took the train from Tyndrum for the final 7 miles. This is an option for clients wishing to fit the full walk into 7 days without having one long day along the way. The walk began on good tracks followed by pasture to the midway…

Rowardennan to Inverarnan

Day 3 on the West Highland Way saw Tara and Scott walk from Rowardennan to Inverarnan. It was another day of blue sky and sunshine. The first half of their walk would take them to Inversnaid along undulating loch side paths with short steep climbs and rocky sections. If you prefer, then some of this…

The first part of her day took her to Balmaha , initially via tracks through Garadhban Forest, before choosing the high route through…

A Bimble up Barrow

Yesterday gave us one of those glorious evenings whereby you have absolutely no choice whatsoever, but to go out and make the most of it. I chose to have a bimble up Barrow to take in the view of the mighty Skiddaw and also down into Newlands Valley. It’s a fairly gentle start to the…

Walk after Work

Summer evenings are just the best aren’t they? Warm, light evenings are just the perfect invitation for a walk after work. So, on Wednesday after racing out the office and throwing some fruit and water into my little pack, I headed down Borrowdale to the small but beautiful village of Stonethwaite with a view to…
