I’m Tom Belz, 34. I was diagnosed with bone cancer when I was 8, and if you had believed in the “typical course” that this type of cancer takes, I wouldn’t be sitting here today writing to you. But here I am, 26 years later, my left leg amputated at the hip and ready to show anyone that had any doubt all those years ago that my disability is no excuse.

Scottish Highlands

Living exhibit of Mother Nature's greatest magic

Whales, basking sharks, deers, otters: from land to sea, forest to river, there’s so much wildlife to be seen in the Highlands!

Lonely Planet calls the Scottish Highlands one of the last corners of Europe where you can discover genuine solitude.

The region's biggest draw remains its magnificent landscape: majestic mountain ranges, floating mist-covered lochs and ancient forests.

On this special trail you can meet new travel buddies who love and respect nature and who are as adventurous as you are. You can also motivate your loved ones to come along. Because hiking is especially fun with a team!

The trail, day by day

Day 1
Welcome to the north-west of Scotland

After arriving in Inverness, you’ll be in for a treat to discover one of the most spectacular places in the Scottish Highlands. During the transfer we will be passing by the first mountains on our route before we set off on our first hike. After a brief ascent we will experience impressive views of An Teallach, one of the most famous mountains in the whole of Scotland. We will pass through Scottish moors on old and solitary hiking trails and animal paths which give way to breathtaking views of the surrounding mountain ranges. We then head towards the Broom River and the loch of the same name, the final stretch continues along the banks of the river before we climb aboard the transfer coach that stops at Aultguish Inn. Here a simple but nourishing meal will be served and we will learn more about the region.

Distance: 13.5 km (approx. 8 miles), time: approx. 4 h

Day 2
Alladale, the wild side of the Highlands

Today will take us deep into the mountainous region of the Alladale Wilderness Reserve, a jewel in the wilderness. We will be walking along the Tal Vaich to get to the loch of the same name during the course of the early morning. The mountains now become even more impressive and challenging. We will hike along the valley until we get to one of the remotest places in Scotland, Deanich Lodge. We travel down a different valley in the afternoon until we reach our destination. A short transfer will take us to our lodgings for the night close to Invershin.

Distance: 26 km (approx. 16 miles), time: approx. 7 h

Day 3
The journey continues further north

We start the day by going back to the point where the journey will begin – Croick. Today’s hike takes us through the old Caledonian mixed forest and along the Cuileannach valley, following the river of the same name until we reach Oykel Bridge. We follow an old trail for most of the time until we take the final pass for the day that leads us to the neighbouring Einig valley. After a short distance we arrive at Oykel Hotel in time for a well-earned drink to round off the day. A short transfer takes us to our hotel on the edge of a loch where there is time to take a refreshing dip in the water before dinner is served.

Distance: 14 km (approx. 8.5 miles), time: approx. 4.5 h

Day 4
Steinadler and the Bone Caves of Assynt

After breakfast, we prepare our daypacks for the day and head off directly from the hotel in a direction far away from any civilisation. We’re immediately off the beaten track and are going uphill. There are breathtaking views to be had of the wild and solitary Assynt Giants. Below the summit of Braebag, the hike continues to the Bone Caves, where the remains of lynx, reindeer and polar bears were found that used to roam here in bygone times. The hike continues over the final pass before crossing through the Inchnadamph nature reserve and on to the place with the same name. The day draws to a close with a tasty meal featuring regional products and a ‘wee dram’ of local whisky.

Distance: 15 km (approx. 9 miles), time: approx. 6 h

Day 5
Scotland’s biggest and most impressive waterfall

Today’s hike takes us to the heart of Assynt. The rugged and arduous tracks climb up to the Na h-Uidhe pass. Maybe we’ll see an eagle soaring majestically above us. We will take our well-earned lunch break directly above the Eas a'Chual Aluinn (The Wading Widow Falls), which has a sheer drop of 200 metres and is the highest waterfall in the whole of Great Britain. The descent in the afternoon follows the route down to Loch na Gainmhich, from which there is a spectacular drive to Ullapool, the largest place in the region with 1500 inhabitants. A final hearty evening meal and a visit to one of the local pubs gives us time to reflect on the memorable events of the past week.

Distance: 15 km, time: approx. 6 h
