  1. WHW 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿
    Completed the WHW on the 6th of May ’21 , A real treat of a trail with a mixed bag of terrain, epic views giving memories that will last a lifetime!
    The trail is doable in 5 days but my advice would be to stretch it out and soak it all in , Conic hill and the Devils Staircase are dubbed the difficult climbs but to be honest the climb out of Kinlochleven was harder for me , also there’s a part around loch lomond which is testing but fun all the same !
    Highly recommend this hike 🥾🥾⛰👍
