Great Glen Cycleway – Day 4

4 Nov , 2010

25 Feb , 2010  

Hadrians Wall Path is one of the most popular long-distance walking routes in the UK and a firm favourite of Macs Adventure clients.

Kath does the Camino!

27 Oct , 2009  

After sleepless nights about what to pack in our 10k hand luggage allowance, my sister Holly and I set off on our journey to Northern Spain to walk the last section of the Camino.  Not really knowing what to expect we were like excited children joking about how awful we were going to look in […]
