Scots Wahey!

A West Highland Wayfarer's Diary

Here it is, my West Highland Way diary, without pictures for now. This is as I wrote it: I haven't tidied it up or amended it, apart from a few really incomprehensible bits and 13 years on it's more than a little embarrassing!

I wrote this diary to capture my memories. But if you are thinking of tackling the whw, I hope it gives you an insight into the ups and downs, both physical and mental, and inspires you to get out there and get your boots dirty.

Head for the hills!
