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 – 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.

Eight days of hiking on the West Highland Way in Scotland. Many variations of green and gray with touches of colors. A selection of my best photos on my 156km across the Scottish Highlands.

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.
