Hey ...

I am looking for information about someone who did or know about trails in Ireland and Scotland. I know that the Scotland and there are lots of hiking a bit shorter in both countries and wanted to hear some recommendations or opinions on these trails. Also, I'd love to hear about the weather around September-October (to start the Trek)-is this legitimate and possible or search for a destination.

Thanks for the help:)

Hey era,

I was walking the West Highland Way (six days) at the end of September 2014. Was very wet. One day it rained pretty much all the time. One day was completely solar and others. Except for one day was wet (and which I will eventually)-the weather doesn't bother me.

After I've travelled there a few days TREK (4 or 5 I don't remember), and the weather continued to be involved (again one day of rain and the rest just fine).

I think Scotland should expect chshtsim for rain significantly each season. So my approach was (and remains)-it doesn't really matter, even though average rainfall in September and October higher than summer.

I really enjoyed the minority. I tries very hard to walk on the edge of the season, as much as possible. In all of the factors I find more advantages than disadvantages (and I also hate-hate-hate Brown). Locals I met claimed the most beautiful month in Scotland in November (because of the color).

If I go there again, I don't rule out the months (September-October-November). But should definitely be ready to tolerate the rain.

Hey amber.

Thanks for the explanation. I kind of took that wet along the way, but if so, obtain equipment that should be fine?

Another thing-less bother me, I'm more worried about the cold that a combination of cold and wet is not good at all (experience Do you have the temperature there was reasonable? Or that it is at zero temperature around?

Hey edu,

Exactly what I was trying to say (and I'm sorry I wasn't very clear unsure ) that my not-really conditions marred the experience! As you say, my equipment and it was really appropriate.

The problem is it. ..

Like you, I too suffer from rain. Although certainly was one which went in wet cloud all day. Leaf drop me off at some point. sneaky As nature trails, sent two precious human beings me animo a day (trails tend to provide solutions to such situations).

About temperature-a lot more suffering than heat source; Probably while walking. As far as I'm concerned, the temperatures were perfect! And it's not zero nothing! At night was pretty cool (I was with a tent, micro fleece me Arabs) but when I went, it was with a short or long, funkier head band-Israel-all shorter +. I never got to the story mode to Felice while walking.

Another point worth giving her attention is duration. I was in Scotland in total something like 10 days and everything was slammed.

Could be a couple of days in a tent outside partner shgsm were breaking even. Maybe Vice versa-perhaps I was practicing and getting ready in the morning with the tent in the rain and dampness. It's hard for me to say.

You need to figure out how you deal with these situations.

I really think it's mostly a matter of taste.

Hope more help.cool
