Walk This Way: Hills, Thrills and Headaches on Scot­land’s Trails ★★★★★

Many of us are like this – one day we’ll walk the three big iconic Scot­tish trails. The West High­land Way, the Great Glen Way and the Speyside Way. Scot­tish writer Gary Suther­land takes his life in his hands and faces up to cold and rain, mist and midges, su­per-fit walk­ers, blis­ters and mus­cle pain, and gets out there. Suther­land’s story is wry and self-dep­re­cat­ing, get­ting lost and afraid of heights, an in­trepid (his word) tale of en­durance, cof­fee, Tun­nock’s tea­cakes and a reg­u­lar dram of Glen­far­clas.
