The Trek is situated in the West of Scotland. Length approx. 152 miles

April/May/June-count periods with less rain.

July/August-driest period but it is considered a

Recommended load and why.

We are going this year in May because of constraints later this summer.

Me, my partner and went about 100 km trail in August 2007 (almost 4 years old son).
The trail wasn't particularly busy but in some places it was hard to find a place to stay and one cupcake (a tiny right now – we called them ניג'סים) was intolerable.

We used a company that drove our pods from village to village and there is what allowed Zimmer to travel with Veterans Day and carry the son in some time. If you're interested and you need recommendations-happy to find what was there (they were very nice and flexible) and Zimmer recommended names.

About the track itself-as mentioned we all no but some sections that are some 100 km, time considerations and because we needed to take a break of 5 days in the middle of (planned).
It was our route:
Days 1-3: Drymen to Crianlarich (with two bumps on the way).
4-7 days: from Bridge of Orchy to Fort Willaim (in a row that the "ilandi" of the track).
Day 8 (half day): Duntreath castle to Milngavie (9 km south of the path).

As you can see, our time constraints I tried to skip sections closer to roads and not pass on wild sections. We were very pleased.

One point worth treated (not sure if that's relevant)-route descriptions I've ever met, the final day of the track is from Kinlochleven to Fort William and along approximately 24 miles to most aiikrim no problem but if as someone too long for him (just an example: suppose even almost 4-year-old boy goes you route) then I found a way to divide this day without the need for the tent. : About halfway there point that comes to it from Fort William road and cellular reception. We called the night before and we booked taxi company with this Bank and are herded into a hotel in the city. The next day the same CAB returned us to the point which continued until the end of the runway.

Appreciate didn't help too much.
If you have specific questions-would love to help.
