After many long weeks in preparation and many editing sessions the journal of my 2008 long distance path is finally released and published on the web site. It tells the story (in words and pictures) of my walk from Glasgow to Inverness, using first the West Highland Way and then the Great Glen Way.
It’s ended up being quite a bit longer than I first anticipated, but none of the text felt like it needed to be forced out onto the page – when the mood took me it just sort of flowed and found it own length. Part of the reason for the delay in publication has been that I’ve never tried to force the words out when they didn’t want to come – there were times when I thought I’d never get the damn thing finished.
Hopefully the result is an accurate description of my walk and how I felt and what I saw. Enjoy.
