Although Spring arrives a little later than in the rest of the UK, staff and volunteers at our youth hostels in the North West are busy preparing for the new season which is just around the corner!

Taking in over 500 miles of stunning coastal scenery, the route naturally follows the coastal edges of the Northern Highlands passing villages such as Torridon, Gairloch, Ullapool, Lochinver, Durness and John O'Groats before finishing in the Highland capital Inverness.
