Thinking about heading up to the land of the Scots for a few weeks next month for a bit of easy prep. If anyone’s done it, care to recommend a route? I’m thinking either West Highland Way (maybe with another route tacked on at the end because it’s so short–or, if I’m basing in Glasgow, I suppose I could double it up there and back again to save money on transporation) or the Southern Upland Way (sounds less nice but is almost doubly as long).
It’s an easy walk but I’m hoping to have all the gear set to go by then so at least it will get me used to lugging it all around. Scotland is very reasonable on wild camping too which is great. Also, castles. That is all.
