First Taste of Scotland’s West Highland Way

by | Jul 9, 2012 | Travel | 0 comments

If you are just joining the blog conversation, Chuck and I spent 10 days hiking in Scotland. Our first taste of Scotland’s West Highland Way was in Kinlochleven, After stashing our bags  at the McDonald House and finding our rain gear, we started walking.

Our destination was a bit ambiguous.

We found a trailhead and eventually arrived at this spot looking over Kinlochleven.

It is everything the travel books said it would be and more.

“Is this a Bog?”

Chuck asked. Yes is the answer. We didn’t sort that out until much later.

What is up with the slanted gates?

You couldn’t help wondering what they were keeping in or out? This question was never fully answered.

Lunch after hiking on the Highland Way always included a beer.

Vegetarian Haggis was on the menu. We were excited to try it.  As it turns out, it was always on the menu in Scotland.  We were pretty sick of vegetarian haggis before we left.
