Wunderschöne und abwechslungsreiche Wanderung
Der West Highland Way ist eine wunderbare Wanderung durch die abwechslungsreiche schottische Landschaft. Die Wege sind gut machbar, gutes Schuhwerk ist allerdings sehr empfehlenswert. Der Weg selbst ist sehr gut markiert, die Reiseunterlagen enthalten zusätzlich noch nützliche Infos zu Verpflegungsmöglichkeiten, Sehenswürdigkeiten etc.. Die Unterkünfte waren durchgehend sauber, komfortabel und sehr unkompliziert, Gepäcktransport hat hervorragend geklappt. Und das schottische Essen ist besser als sein Ruf :-) Letzten Endes mussten wir uns um nichts kümmern und konnten die Reise in vollen Zügen genießen. Absolut empfehlenswert!

Rundum zufrieden mit der gebuchten Reise!
Ich bin rundum zufrieden mit der gebuchten Wanderreise. Die Strecke ist landschaftlich ein Traum! Obwohl wir im August unterwegs waren war der Weg nicht total überfüllt. Die Tagesetappen hatten eine gute Länge. Man war zwar bei der Ankunft oft erschöpft, hatte jedoch auch genug Zeit sich am Nachmittag/ Abend von der Wanderung zu erholen.
