Séjour au Glen Nevis (Ecosse)- Ben Nevis (1344m)

La bruyère, la fougère et l’herbe haute qui parent les versants des montagnes prennent des teintes fauves, et les premiers frimas chapeautent de blanc les sommets des montagnes. Les journées sont courtes, mais le soleil reste toujours proche de l’horizon, arrosant le paysage de ces lueurs aux couleurs chaudes constamment changeantes. West Highland Way.

L’été indien qui a suivi la canicule en France a cessé particulièrement tôt cette année, pour recouvrir prématurément nos montagnes de neige, au point d’y élever les indices de risques d’avalanches à des niveaux non négligeables. Cependant, Novembre 2003 battit tous les records de chaleur en Ecosse enregistrés depuis 50 ans, au point d’élever la température jusqu’à 18°C dans les vallées. 08 / 11 / 2003 : Cruach Ardrain L’état du ciel me déçut : il faisait gris, un ciel bas. 10 / 11 / 2003 : Carn Mor Dearg , Ben Nevis.

Trotternish Ridge

Spectacular views throughout.

Most people split it into a 2 day hike with a camp or bivvy on the ridge itself. Public Transport This is a linear walk finishing in Portree - public transport can be used to reach the start. Hillwalking in Winter Please note that hillwalking when there is snow lying requires an ice-axe, crampons and the knowledge, experience and skill to use them correctly.

The West Highland Way A walking holiday in the Scottish Highlands Introduction The West Highland Way is a 95-mile (152km) walk from Milngavie, just outside Glasgow, to Fort William on the west coast of Scotland, at the foot of Ben Nevis.

The West Highland Way

I walked the route in September 2001, with a friend, Tim Calow. We made no fixed plans for how far we would walk each day, but aimed to complete the walk in about seven days. Day 1 - Milngavie to Drymen (12 miles) Tim and I travelled separately by train from our respective homes in Skipton and York, and met at Glasgow Central station. And so at 12.30 we commenced our 95-mile trek, taking the footpath alongside Allander Water. The path heads towards Dumgoyne, a prominent hill at the western edge of the Campsie Fells, then picks up the route of an old railway. We had no pre-booked accommodation, so we called at each place we saw offering Bed & Breakfast. Skye Trail. Map_2012.jpg (Image JPEG, 233x1000 pixels) - Redimensionnée (61%) Melrose to Kelso.
