Scotland

In June 2019, I left for five weeks of hiking across Scotland. I started with the West Highland Way, a hike of about a week through the Highlands and then continued through the Hebridean Way, two weeks across the Outer Hebrides, a string of islands on the west coast of Scotland to finish with Isle of Skye and Inverness. Rain, clouds, green mountains, white sand beaches, ruins and a special atmosphere.

5 weeks – June and July 2019

Photos – Isle of Skye

The Isle of Skye, located in northwestern Scotland, is the largest island in the Inner Hebrides archipelago. The end of my trip to Scotland being close, I could only enjoy four days on the island to discover its rugged coastline and its mountain scenery.

Photos – The Outer Hebrides

The Outer Hebrides are an archipelago of islands east of Scotland. For two and a half weeks, I crossed on foot following the Hebridean Way, the different islands constituting the archipelago, from Barra in the south to Lewis in the North.

Just a few days on Skye

The end of my five weeks in Scotland is near. After the Outer Hebrides, I have only four days left to enjoy the Isle of Skye. I take this opportunity to go for day hikes along the Skye Trail.

The Hebridean Way – part 1: Wind and monotony

After the West Highland Way, I head out for my second week in Scotland for the Outer Hebrides, an archipelago of about ten islands in the West of Scotland. The Hebridean Way, a two-week wilder hiking trail, is waiting for me.
