The West Highland Way 2– Drymen to Critreoch Forest
The West Highland Way 2– Drymen to Critreoch Forest

If one follows a strict 7-day approach to the West Highland Way, Day two from Drymen to Rowardennan rolls in at a cool 15 miles (24KM).  By the first day, I knew I wasn’t going to be following the classic 7 day itinerary and was opting for an 8 day approach.  Drymen to Rowardennan became […]

The West Highland Way 1 - Milngavie to Drymen

Milngavie is actually pronounced in a manner that is not remotely close to how it is spelt.  Welcome to Scotland.  English is spoken, but not really.  People who live in Milngavie and the surrounding area are intimately familiar with the American pronunciation of their town, that one can actually get across their geographic question without […]

Mt. Fitz Roy - Day Two

C.B. Poincenot is one of those conveniently located trekking camps that accommodates early morning hikes to strategically located vistas (all without the nuisance of carrying along your gear).  Lago Los Tres is about 40 steep minutes from C.B Poincenot and certainly worth the time.  It’s also where I left my nice pair of wool gloves.
