North to the Cape by Denis Brook
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


A guide to Scotland's 200-mile, 326km backpacking trekking route through the West Highlands from Fort William to Cape Wrath, for the experienced walker. This is a glorious long-distance walk. Described as a quintessential backpacking walk it is a challenging route for the experienced walker. The authors had six main criteria in mind: a variety of scenery, no long hauls over featureless terrain, use of designated paths, interesting geography, no high peaks to climb and a good day's walk every day with accommodation at the end. The route is split into 21 stages, many with an easier bad-weather alternative. The guide includes full information, including details of accommodation and advice on where to purchase provisions as you go along.
