Several openings are still available for KTA’s fundraising hiking trip along Scotland’s spectacular West Highland Way, September 16-28. Arriving as a group in Edinburgh, we will explore this beautiful historic city highlighted by imposing Edinburgh Castle. We then travel to Milngavie and the start of the 97-mile West Highland Way, a gorgeous pathway that leads into the heart of the Scottish highlands. For the most part, the Way follows gentle gradients on ancient drove roads and old military roads passing such scenic delights as the shores of Loch Lomond and the wild and open Rannoch Moor. In Fort William, near the end of our trek, the highest mountain in the United Kingdom, Ben Nevis, comes into view. We return to Edinburgh via the West Highland Line regarded by many as the “Greatest Railway Journey in the World.”
Daily mileages vary from 7 to 16 miles, but the hiking is not difficult. Luggage is forwarded each day to our accommodations so you only need to carry a daypack. Accommodations are a combination of B&B’s and country inns. The total cost is $4,095 which includes round-trip airfare to Edinburgh. Trip leaders are Todd Lange from Treks & Trails International, and KTA’s Executive Director, Joe Neville.
