Walking in the Highlands Slideshow and Lecture

posted Nov 12, 2015, 12:12 PM by BHML Librarian
Suzanne and Pete Madeira and Nancy Stanley will share picture and anecdotes from their 155 km (97 mile) walk through the Scottish Highlands on Tuesday, November 17th at 7pm.

Opened in 1980, the West Highland Way was Scotland's first long distance route and remains the most popular, with thousands of walkers tackling it each year. The route leaves the northern suburbs of Glasgow and passes along the eastern shore of Lock Lomond, the largest body of fresh water in Britain, and across Rannoch Moor, Scotland's grandest wilderness. It continues through some of the finest scenery of mountain and stream, woodland and moorland that Scotland has to show and ends at Fort William in the shadow of Ben Nevis, the highest peak in Britain.

Refreshments to follow.
