I am looking to do one of the long distance walks in Scotland this summer. I'm debating between the West Highland Way and the Great Glen Way. I have about 5 days to spend on the walk. I'm wondering...
1)Is the scenery and experience of the West Highland Way much better than the Great Glen Way? Will there be a similar number of people on both trails in June? Would either be more fun for a solo walker?
2) How rigorous would doing the West Highland Way in 5 days be? I am in pretty good condition (work out regularly, enjoy hiking) but not the best condition. This will be my first long distance walk.
If the West Highland Way is much better than the Great Glen Way, and if it most likely needs more than 5 days, I can rearrange my travel plans to add a day or two, but I'd like to avoid that. That said, I want to make sure I get a full and wonderful Scottish walk experience! Any input would be very much appreciated!
