Which guidebook did people use? Has anyone used the Rucksack one? It has had good reviews but from what I can see online, the directions are quite fairly brief.

I shall have to see what is available in Stanfords to peruse before selecting.

Thanks

I used the Trailblazer guide which I found to be fine as it also includes details of campsites, B&Bs, where to eat etc. I am quite a fan of the Trailblazer hand drawn maps although I do take extracts from the OS maps as well.

I'm using Trailblazer this year, I have used their guides for coast to coast and Hadrian's Wall, and have not been let down yet.

When are you walking the WHW??

I know your question wasn't aimed at me,but we start on the 4th of May. We're hoping to do Ben Nevis and then we're finishing with The Great Glen way.

hi there c2cer, we are starting on 6th May, hoping to do Ben Nevis, and that is where we finish. We would have liked to do the Great Glen Way, but one of our team has other comitments.

We took the trailblazer and cicerone guides and I wrote a bit about them here:

I'm quite a fan of these trailblazer "brick" guides as they are useful when planning the walk as well as en-route.
