West Highland Way (in 6 days) – Day 6. Kinlochleven to Fort William 24km/16miles

Kind of hard to believe that we actually got almost to the end. On one hand I really wanted to finish this but on the other I knew, I will miss it. It is a complete bubble we were during the whole trip. And of course, there were horrific things I was going through in…… Continue reading West Highland Way (in 6 days) – Day 6.

Well, the start of the day was great! We had breakfast at Drymen and headed off around 9am.

Our very first day of walking the West Highland Way we have started at 8.30am on a Sunday at the end of April. The first day was actually a really nice and relatively easy walk.
