No 361 - The West Highland Way
Now Playing: No 361 - The West Highland Way - The West Highland Way is a 96 mile established hiking trail in Scotland which takes walkers from the outskirts of Glasgow to the foot of Ben Nevis past the beautiful Loch Lomond and through the Trossachs National Park.
It is a trail which many first time long distance hikers cut their teeth on, as although it is remote in places providing that desirable experience of solitude, it is still within reach of civilisation should you need to terminate your trip due to weather or other circumstances.
It is also well serviced by campsites, B&Bs and luggage courier services, for those who want to complete the walk without carrying all their gear.
Rose being a true backpacker, undertook this walk taking everything she needed with her, in mid April 2013 and this podcast covers her experience, discussing the route, the terrain and if she felt, as a lone female hiker, vulnerable at a stage of the experience.
