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.

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.”
