Ben Lomond via the Ptarmigan Route

After completing the West Highland Way with Thistle Trekking I had decided to stay on in Scotland and do some route testing for the “walk away” weekends we are going to start offering in 2020.

West Highland Way with Thistle Trekking Part two

Here is the remainder of the blog form the West Highland Way trek with Thistle Trekking…. Day five is often spoken off in hushed and fearful tones, the epic day over Rannoch Moor and into Glencoe, but the reality is that the walking is rarely all that difficult and the landscape more than makes up

Hope to Grindleford

The area around the Hope Valley is one of those fortunate spots in the UK’s National Parks that has genuinely good public transport links with the added advantage this brings of planning linear walks. Since injuring my knee during an Autumn expedition to Cambodia I haven’t had the chance to get out and do any
