West Highland Way | Timelapse Walking the Entire Route

The West Highland Way (WHW) has left an imprint on my heart. Just watching this video, I crave to be back in Scotland. Anyone who has completed a long distance hike knows that insatiable feeling. Your body and mind yearn to be back on the trail. I think it’s because being in nature is the ultimate decompressor.

When hiking the West Highland Way, you encounter only a few, if any, other hikers while completing your journey. People sometimes forget how important solitude, mindful reflection, and digital detox is to one’s soul.

Timelapse Walking the Entire Route

This video was our way of documenting hiking 100 miles in the beautiful countryside of Scotland. What an awesome remembrance of one of the biggest highlights on our round-the-world trip. So without further ado…here’s our presentation of ~ THE WEST HIGHLAND WAY!

“It had nothing to do with gear or footwear or the backpacking fads or philosophies of any particular era or even with getting from point A to point B. It had to do with how it felt to be in the wild. With what it was like to walk for miles with no reason other than to witness the accumulation of trees and meadows, mountains and deserts, streams and rocks, rivers and grasses, sunrises and sunsets. The experience was powerful and fundamental. It seemed to me that it had always felt like this to be a human in the wild, and as long as the wild existed it would always feel this way.”

  1. Very well said, Audrey! I couldn’t agree more!! Couple comments on your video…1. great job with the music to the hike. it really added to the experience! 2. my favorite view that i could see was the view from up above to the water below and in the distance (your cover photo to the video)–absolutely beautiful. i crave viewpoints like that!! 3. although you guys had to have been tired, you had the energy to do cute little choreographed dance moves! ha ha, love it 🙂 4. funniest part of the video–JR goes through the curved metal gate, Audrey goes around. for some reason made me crack up! was a cute moment 5. this was my 3rd favorite video of your RTW…#1 being your dancing video, #2 Antarctica, now #3 WHW. VERY nicely done (JR!) 6. I feel like this is such great documentation of memories you will treasure forever! so glad you got more than just still shot photographs!
    anxiously await the next great vlog–Laura

    1. Thanks for your comments Laura! Harry did a fantastic job selecting music to spice up the video! I’m also glad to hear you noticed our silliness that we tapped around the gate. Wasn’t sure if it was going to translate in the video…and it did! Our next big project is to finish Dancing Video #2, so lots of dancing to come! Love you!
