    Hike Scotland's West Highland Way!

    Join me as I return to Scotland this summer to hike the 96-mile path from Milngavie to Fort William. We can bag a few munros, including Ben Lomond on the third day of our trek. We will have a trained mountain leader with us who will safely guide us to the top of Ben Nevis (the highest peak in the UK) and a few other mountains nearby.

    I will hold several informational meetings of this trek -- described by one hiker and a 100-mile pub crawl, as we will be staying in a different village almost every night, slaking our thirst in a local pub. Dates for hiking the WHW: June 28 (fly to Glasgow) - July 9 (arrive in Fort William), Mountain climbing July 10 - 13. Return date to be determined.

    You can check out more information on the WHW:

    Depending on the hour. I have a Christmas concert rehearsal almost every Sunday afternoon before Christmas now, usually from 1:30- 4:00.

    Also, it looks like I could meet folks in Scotland, if I participate, as I will be in Sweden prior to your arrival in Scotland. I have a concert tour that runs from June 23- July 2, 2017. I had planned on traveling to Scotland after my visit to Stockholm.

    I would love to be there and ask a lot of questions about this trip. I did my own hiking through the Scottish Argyle and on the isle of Skye. I don't get off of work until 530 in the Elk Grove area and traffic is awful at that hour. I would not arrive until almost 7 o'clock. would it be possible to just to request information? To start with I'd like to know the travel dates.
