The only walk worth talking about IMHO is the short one (hopefully) to a decent car. , Edited by - leon on 5 Mar 2013 13:20:17

Quoting Jonathan Kay: Quoting myothercarsa2cv: Short walk (8 miles or so?), but if you're near Stavanger, climb Preikestolen (probably spelt that wrong). Hell of a view at the top.Not heard of that before but there's a great photo here. I think my photo is better here Other favourites of mine was an easy walk up to the lake in Somiedo, Northern Spain (I'd have to look up the name of it, languages are not my forte) followed by a 800m altitude scramble to get a nice view (here - wasn't expecting to do any climbing, so no boots, water, food, jackets... Was a bit nippy up the top!) And the other worthy to mention is Table Mountain in Cape Town... Well trodden path, but challenging enough and lovely views at the end. My all time favourite was probably El Corazon in Ecuador, which is a shade under 5km high and bloody awkward to climb, but stunning views at the top and a lovely oxygen rush as you come down. Snowdon in the fog is also good fun Hm, I do seem to like just climbing things... ETA - looks like I got my distance wrong for Priekestolen - 8km not 8miles...!

Just finished walking the Great Glen. Mostly low-level walking, about 10 to 14 miles/ day, Fort William to Inverness. 12 of us on the Ros Crana, a converted barge. Caledonian Discovery ran the whole thing: guide, and food and accommodation on the barge. Superb operation: good food, pretty luxurious and excellent crew. Highly recommended. We took the Caledonian Sleeper both ways: wonderful old-fashioned way to travel. (Our bonus peak was intended to be Ben Nevis but conditions were pretty poor and we turned back.)

I was more impressed with Glen Coe than the Great Glen when I was up there.

Forgot to say that our walking guide's father has written a book about Caterhams and his brother does PR for Bloodhound SSC! Jonathan

Just back from walking Penzance to St Ives, then round Lands End to Penzance on the South West Coast Path. Good walking, and views and food were both better than the first bit we did, from Penzance to Falmouth. Not a a lot of wildlife but saw lots of choughs on the north coast and watched a slow worm autotomise for the first time. Accommodation and luggage transfer by Encounter Walking Holidays, who were good to deal with, especially as the group changed its plans a few time. Recommended. Jonathan
