Hello everyone,

Before 4 weeks I returned with a friend from 8 days in Scotland. The path that we walked him called THE WEST HIGHLAND WEY I know now it's not just the season, but the trip was perfect so I write here so whoever wants to plan the season, knew how ...

First of all I have to say ahead of the trip I never heard of this track, and just a few days before your flight, we decided we were going up the track.

Flight:

Start over-flying.
There are two ways to get to Scotland:
1. a direct flight to Edinburgh from Israel [very expensive and not recommended] around the $ 730.
2. flight to London, and from there connect to Scotland, what we did and we had a total of about $ 500 and some.

Note: If you decide to actually fly through London so the track will be such, local flight to Heathrow Airport in London, where bus [very exit routes] Gatwick airport from where the flight of airline EASYJET [recommended to book tickets in advance].

Track :

The track starts 6 miles from the main town in Scotland [Glasgow] and not a problem to find, ask anyone on the street could tell you, and about 190 km.

It is important to note that the Trek is considered the most beautiful in England.
The track is marked with great personal level so I traveled without a map at all, not even for a second, tbrbarti every few kilometers you have ruled that you where you are, and the level that I personally didn't know until then.

The difficulty of the track at a very low level, I personally traveled with people aged 60 +, the track without any problem.

Dividing the days TREK women perform around 8 days. I personally because I'm a soldier and I'm relatively good fit it in 4 and a half days. Take your time, you don't want to hurry with the landscape.

Food-the food issue is a problematic issue, not every course you trip through the Scottish villages, towns that host with you every few kilometers you pass a grocery store/food writer and subject is simple and fun.

Accommodation-accommodation as well as food is light, we hiked with average tent against rain [and every night raining name] have established a rather dry, and no trouble sleeping every night outside, although can sleep in f & B [for 30 pounds]. Abnormal treat.

Eras-I personally traveled in June, and it was amazing. Cool day, perfect weather for walking, and rainy night.
It is important to note that the Sun in Scotland sinking at about 11 o'clock at night, so you have a long day.

-Costs once Chiltern Scotland everything you have to spend it on, I personally spent 500 pounds in 8 days and I must say that tpnkano every night/we ate lunch in the restaurant in the evenings we go to pubs, three times on f & f [that means 90 pounds] in short, not much expenditures.

Water-no water all carry Trek at any given moment beside a river with flowing waters. Just travelling half-liter bottle is empty, and stzmas and drink, amazing!

Finally:
This is my first trip abroad and I must say that he was perfect, easy to plan it, easy to follow, and it is amazing! So easy to get along in Scotland it unbelievable, kind people and breathtaking scenery.

Who wants to see photos can go to Facebook.

I think that's the first time I write about my trip so I hope you get betterNeutral

The track starts 6 miles north of Glasgow [Scotland central town] so that almost any bus to the starting point. I personally took a tour bus terminal Island, but in principle a matter of transportation there is very convenient to available [also, they stopped a lot rides ]

During the trip I don't say we just boxes hundreds of travelers throughout the trail [apparently really popular trail] from all over the world [except Israel!].

And the Scots? Cutest/people/good kind I met so far.

To say about Trek inScotland it is beautiful Trek in England as a whole.
People went there to wars over less.
:-)

Great. Thank you.
You seem to be on good weather. Scotland not known for particularly stable weather and low spots can be bad even in summer.

About hours, June is the peak and the sun sets on December 11 but she sets already in the area 2 (if she even bothered to shine) and whoever comes in September, for example, has already run into much shorter days (sunset and Sunrise area 6 late, after 8 a.m.). Orotem 40068.6412268519

May not be reiterated that we were at the height of summer "in Scotland, and at the end of each day, rain fell there I highly doubt if ever dropped in our country to grief herb. But what got better during the long day there were hardly any rain that stopped us from going.

Beautiful pictures

A few questions
According to the description of the amstam seems more weight on their backs than needed.
Some carried weight?
What you need in terms of winter gear (although ...)?

Not at all.

I carried the heavier ones, and he weighed 16 pounds my friend carried a bag that weighed 14 pounds, so not bad.

In winter it is not possible to travel this route as Greece everything. When travelling in summer [like winter in Israel] very important to obtain rain bagiud [I went with nylon pants most the trip] shirts against water, and of course, in a very good level and water tent.
