As a family, 3 of us hiked the Way usings MACS Adventures. This trip was demanding yet very satifying in terms of bonding and the sights. The Scottish people are fantastic and amongst the friendliest you will meet as a tourist. We met a lot of great and helpful people on the trail and although it was exhausting the 8... More

We took a guided adventure trip with Gaia Travel. They planned everything for us, right down to the right clothes to wear, what we should eat (for fuel) and accommodation en route. The scenery was stunning even when it rained. The tracks were surprisingly empty for June. All well signposted. you dont need a guide but it was our choice... More

Two of us aged 68 and 71 spent a hugely enjoyable 8 days completing the walk from 7 October. We used Gemini Walks to transport our goods and they were excellent. Hotels/B&B's were of variable standard (mostly ordinary), the best by far being Allt na Leven B&B in Kinlochleven. The only map required is the Footprint map for the whole... More

A few days hard graft but definitely worth it. Some amazing views, scenery and locations. Some lovely places to stop and eat (and drink!) Well worth it!

This was my 4th UK long distance trail and we completed this one in a group of 4, two women and two men, ages 36 - 57. We took 8 days, walking South to North and overnighting in Milngavie, Drymen, Balmaha, Inversnaid, Crianlarich, Bridge of Orchy, Kingshouse, Kinlochleven and Fort William. We found the pace suited us ideally and we... More

This was our very first long distance walk. We booked with a firm called macs adventures that arranged all our hotels and onward bag transportation every day to the next hotel. The walk was fabulous, hardest day being along Loch Lomond as it was a long day. The scenery is magnificent and everyone you meet is so friendly, an ideal... More

I just returned and could not recommend the experience more. There is nothing like walking to get a feel for a place and even in the wind and the rain the Highlands are unstinting on their beauty. Rannoch Moor is luminous when the sun is trying to push through the clouds. We used Make Tracks to arrange accommodations and luggage... More
