Wilderness Walking - The Knoydart Peninsula
Really rewarding week - physically (great walking), spiritually (beautiful, wild, peaceful surroundings), emotionally (interesting, fun group + leader) + internally (ate too much)
Can't remember a particularly inspirational moment, just had an uninterrupted enjoyable time
