This past May my husband and I travelled to Scotland to hike part of the West Highland Way and explore the Isle of Skye’s southern coasts. Now that we’ve (sadly!) returned home, I’d like to share a list of helpful tips for other Americans hiking in Scotland.
We are hiking hobbyists and take a weekend several times a year to explore trails in Texas and neighbouring New Mexico. However, we knew an adventure like this in Scotland would require a lot more planning and preparation. I scoured blogs and books for information on what to expect, but no amount of research could have truly prepared me for Scotland’s beauty and the experience of spending nine glorious days in its great outdoors. So here they are – my top tips.
