Zero (rest day) in Fort William, Scotland, UK

Zero (rest day) in Fort William, Scotland, UK


So taking a zero day today between the West Highland and Great Glen Ways. I head out in the morning, a relatively flat 10 mile hike.

So today I relaxed, ate, relaxed, did some errands, ate, relaxed, ate and dodged rain showers.


Fort William is sort of an outdoor jumping off point for the highlands. Had the best chicken vindaloo I’ve ever had, got my shopping done and gave my legs a break.

Ran into some of the hikers I spent time with on the trail.  I spent the most time with couples from Tennessee, Denmark and London. A couple of cool girls living in England, one from Lithuania and the other “Rocket” from Poland. That girl seriously flies up hill.


Nice to have a rest day today I can’t deny, but back to smiles and miles in the morning. Because a bad day on a trail is still almost always better than a good day at work. Have a happy day my friends. – Rev Kane
