I was glad for the helpful response to my questions, and also the informative trip notes.
The Scottish countryside was beautiful, and changed dramatically as we walked northwards. I had wanted to walk the West Highland Way for many years, so for me this was a dream come true - despite the rough terrain. We had a wonderful guide and a cheerful, friendly group of women. The encouragement and companionship of the group was brilliant.
Accommodation & Food
Amazingly good in view of the coronavirus problems and uncertainties this year. The accommodation was clean and comfortable, and quite sufficient for our needs - all coped extremely well with the coronavirus regulations. I particularly enjoyed the Kingshouse Hotel.
Emy is a really excellent guide - well-organised, thoughtful and caring. She was skillful in recognising and coping with the very different abilities and needs of each member of the group, and ensured we could safely enjoy the walk at different speeds. I am very grateful for her help and encouragement, which enabled me to enjoy and complete the walk.
The Bottom Line
The West Highland Way is a marvelous trail through some of the most varied and beautiful scenery in Scotland. I am really glad that I was able to take part in this trip despite the rough terrain and difficult walking. I think Wilderness Scotland provided excellent arrangements for the trip, and I will have every confidence in booking future trips with them.
