After I made my decision to retire, there was no looking back. I had the opportunity to start a new life at the age of 50. My plan was to travel and see all the sights I had dreamed about as a young boy.

After I made my decision to retire, there was no looking back. I had the opportunity to start a new life at the age of 50. My plan was to travel and see all the sights I had dreamed about as a young boy.

Monday the 2nd April 2001 was the first day of the rest of my new life. First stop was the Canary Islands with Sandy, then a month in Nepal, followed by eleven weeks in Canada. The rest, as they say, is history.

Why not take a look at my photos to see the places I’ve visited.

The 96 miles Route starts at Milngavie passes through Mugdock Country Park, follows the shores of Loch Lomond, passing Ben Lomond, through Glen Falloch and Strathfillan, crossing Rannoch Moor, past Buachaille Etive Mor to the head of Glencoe, climbing the Devil’s Staircase, descending to sea level to cross the River Leven at the head of Loch Leven before entering Lairigmor and Glen Nevis and finishes at Gordon Square in Fort William.

The 75 km (47 mile) trail lies along the western side of Vancouver Island, open from May 1 to September 30. It'll take about 5-7 days to hike the entire length.

Although the Island's got a mild and temperate climate, the West Coast dampness can chill you right to the bone - mostly at night. But if you're looking for a rugged hiking vacation that tests you to the limits, then this is one adventure waiting for you!
Be prepared for some serious diversity! Climb over ocean boulders and wade through mud bogs. Ride cable cars, haul yourself up rocky cliffs on pull ropes, climb ladders and bounce your way over a suspension bridge!

Beaches, caves, cliffs and waterfalls is part of the scenery, and watch for fascinating tidal pools too. You'll be dwarfed by old-growth trees in the coastal rainforest, and in awe of the morning mist rising from the forest floor.
