The West Highland Way 8 – Kinlochleven to Fort William

The West Highland Way 8 – Kinlochleven to Fort William

Fortunately, the final 25KM walk from Kinlochleven to Fort William was afforded decent weather and I was able to avoid taking the bus as I had threatened the day before. The final leg of the WHW is quite enjoyable and with the exception of a rather steep ascent immediately outside of Kinlochleven, quite a relaxing […]

The West Highland Way 7 – Altnafeadh to Kinlochleven

The West Highland Way 7 – Altnafeadh to Kinlochleven

Rain, rain rain.  Day seven was another perpetually drenched walk through the Highlands.  This day in particular I recall being especially soggy.  So soggy in fact that I cut the day short when I reached Kinlochleven at around 2pm.  The day began well in Altnafeadh, with a foggy yet surprisingly mild and dry morning.  Altnafeadh […]

The West Highland Way 4/5/6 – Strathfillian to Altnafeadh (Kings House)

This is another double post; days four and five on the WHW.   A grand total of three photographs from day four given the absolutely atrocious weather.  Cold, wet and muddy combined with uncountable numbers of midges.  I’m fairly comfortable with flying insects given my years spent silviculture surveying out in the hinterlands of Northern BC…however […]

The West Highland Way 3/4 – Critreoch Forest to Strathfillian Wigwams

The West Highland Way 3/4 – Critreoch Forest to Strathfillian Wigwams

I have combined my third and fourth days on the WHW into one entry largely because my third day was utterly horrible from both a aesthetic and physical perspective.  Leading the morning trek from Critreoch Forest was another scorching day of +30 degree weather.  What was suppose to be a 20KM trek to Inverarnan and […]

Kingston 2014

This is my favourite photo of Kingston.  Yeah, I know, it’s been doctored with some silly Photoshop antics, but it manages to captures the uniqueness of the city in a manner that only someone who has lived there would appreciate.  The old S&R department store, a mainstay of downtown Kingston closed in 2009, but has […]
