Day Three – West Highland Way Adventure

Day Three of our West Highland Way insight trip and we woke up to glorious sunshine with the tops of the mountains finally visible.

A full Scottish breakfast set us up for the final day where some of the team were to take on the infamous devils staircase. The rest of the team (including myself) put our Berghaus gazebo up on the spot we had before which was now being called ‘the Berghaus Bridge’ by all who stopped to talk to us. Again we met a great bunch of people who were passionate about the products they had brought on the trip; some rucksacks being 20years old and still reliable!

Poor Adrian was still suffering with midge bites and was using Smidge like it was going out of fashion! Ed had decided to reduce the weight in his pack a little to be able to tackle the devils staircase in a little more comfort, and they managed to complete that stage in only 3 ½ hours, so celebrated with a cream team when they arrived in Kinlochleven.

That evening we stayed in the amazing wooden cabins of the Macdonald Hotel in Kinlochleven, who were incredibly hospitable in letting us chat to their other guests about product. We also put together a mini impromptu pub quiz for those who we were meeting for the third night in a row.

Friday morning we woke to beautiful skies to pack up and head back to the North East, most using the journey for singing practice and to catch up on some much needed sleep!

Thank you to all who came and regaled us with stories of their day, and insight into how they use their kit. You made it a really enjoyable week for us and we can’t wait to start sketching for the season ahead!
