West Highland Way in December
I'm planning to walk the West Highland Way somewhere between December 10 and December 24 on my own. From walkaboutscotland.com I got an itinerary to do it in 6 days (+/- 19 miles a day). I just have a couple of questions. I hope you can help.
- What will be the conditions on the trail? Will there be snow and ice?
- Is it safe to walk there on my own considering I have to walk some portions in the dark due to limited daylight? (I will take a head lamp).
- Is the trail properly marked?
- What to do in case of emergency?
