THE NORTH HIGHLAND WAY
(A Tuath na Gàidhealtachd dòigh)
The NORTH HIGHLAND WAY is a 150 miles/241km walk from Duncansby Head in the North East to Cape Wrath in the North West. Its a walk on the wild side and, there is also a ferry to go on!
The route takes you through some of the most scenic landscapes in the world with white beaches, geo's, waterfalls and also by mountain peaks.
There are obvious trails in some areas, especially close to villages and towns as the local people use them to keep them open. In other areas there is no trail and is just a matter of walking along the coast. The going underfoot can be very difficult and boggy at times. Also with some of the more rugged routes it is recommended that a minimum of two walkers take part, please see the routes for which ones.
It has been recorded with walkingworld.com (You can download the GPX files of the Way from here) as a 13 Day walk but, it can be a 10 Day walk. The full route does not have to be done in one go, it can be done in stages.
