What does /out/ think about the West Highland Way?
is /out/ approved? or is it a massive tourist trap?
any tips for doing the West Highland Way the first time?

>About 85,000 people use the path every year
So you've got 230 people on it every day. Seems a bit over crowded to me.

I'm wandering the highlands in late February but making my own path.

I'm thinking of going in March, although the alternate route described in this link sounds pretty appealing: http://www.c8h10n4o2.org/walking/highland_highway/

Why do you have to take a specific route? Just go walk.

Dont forgett your wellies then, walking the bogs is hard work.

Don't start it in Milgnavie at the official start line. The first section through Mugdoc park etc all the way up to Balmaha (or even Rowardennan) is NOT enjoyable, way too busy, and not that scenic.

March you're gonna get some sketchy weather still at the Fort William end. Devils staircase etc in poor weather doesn't appeal.

I intend to do it via bike this coming Summer over a few days.

I call the WHW a 'sampler' of the Highlands. You see a little bit of everything that's awesome about Scotland, and a great start if you haven't done much in the country.
If you go on the off-peak season the volume of hikers isn't bad. I remember crossing Rannoch Moor alone on a foggy day and feeling like I'd disappeared into a prehistoric era.

Fuck fuck fuck fuck now you've got me reminiscing about when I was 19 with no job, no family obligations, no student debt, spending the days running wild through the heather and drinking out of streams.

Ditto, I'm moving to England in the next week or so, you just made me feel bad Anon.
