Hiking the East Highland Way

Observant readers of this blog will notice a new box on the margins. I'm currently writing a series for Gadling on hiking the East Highland Way, a 76-mile route through some amazing scenery. Check out the link for stories about my visits to Pictish forts, medieval castles, and beautiful countryside, along with my blunt opinion of haggis!

Last year I hiked the Hadrian's Wall Path. While that was a lot of fun the East Highland Way was more challenging. I'm not sure what my long-distance hike will be next year, but I'm sure it will be in Scotland! The far north near Cape Wrath, which is even more remote than the area I went to, looking very promising.

Chum riep soo from Cambodia!
Found my way here through Google and I must say your blog is awesome. I have been fascinated by European history even if I live in Asia. I recently got hold of a DVD copy of BBC's The Normans and got me even hungry for more. Great blog you have here, I like your travels, insights, and photos :) I'm a fan!

Cheers.
