I've no clue about a hike like that, but a friend and I are looking to go up to Scotland in the summer for a week or two. Not to steal your thread, but I've been looking at the Loch Lomond / Argyll Forest Park area and would appreciate it if anyone had any information on the suitability of the area.

Look for a book called the High Highland Way (Can't remember the author) It is a high level version of the standard West Highland Way (Flat, busy, midgies) It offers a walk from Loch Lomond to Fort William near Ben Nevis with numerous variables which add or shorten the walk too suit. It keeps you in the wilder parts but you can still hit the odd pub and keeps you high up with the odd Munro thrown in. Argyll is a pain to get around with no real direct routes because of sea lochs which also means more rain from the westerley winds and more effing midgies. Most roads and paths have to follow the lochside with lots of dull tree plantations up higher.

If you are going up that way you may like the walk along the pass of Glencoe, possibly the Anoch Eagach ridge if you don't mind a little bit of scrambling en-route.

The veiw from the ridge is fab and you can nearly always catch sight of red deer in the pass :wave:

adamscott2 you would be hard pushed to find a better place to go than knoydart ,you are almost there when you reach fort william.this is to me is one of the most beautifull places in Scotland ,i,m sure many others would agree.i travel up to knoydart about 3-4 times a year and i have not even begun to explore this very remote country.there are lots of bothy,s in the area ,so you could travel from bothy to bothy ,these are very comfortable and it would not even cost you a penny .you would not be dissapointed

Generally very suitable. Depends on what you are planning though. What are you planning? B & B, wild camping or a bit of both.

If you do not want to steal this thread you can start a new one or PM me.
