Nearly 400 km most difficult trail of British Isles known as one of the most difficult trails in the world. It leads via Scottish Highlands and it is unmarked and missing a visible path. It is considered dangerous and out of civilization.

Przemyslaw wrote:  "I had all of my food with me accept from 3 ocassions where I bought couple of snacks and a pub meal.  First spot was on the third day Shiel Bridge ( petrol station ), then Kinglochewe on the 4th day ( pub ) and last on the 6th day Oykel Bridge hotel. I decided not to leave the trail to shop."

He took the Glenfinnan route out of Fort William:  "Regarding the Great Glen route out of Fort William I chose the other one as it was more primal and difficult according to my sources and consequently I avoided all easier shortcuts."
