2014 Scotland Trip Stories


Hopefully this will make it easier for you to read through my day-by-day trip reports, especially those joining in late or trying to catch up. It will also help you look at the rest of the photos once I get them up here. You should be able to click on the link to get to the appropriate post, then when you’ve finished reading, just use the “back” button on your browser to get back to here to read the next one.
(and now in fancy tables . . . since I’ve been learning HTML coding!)

One note on distances: These are mainly from my GPS (with some map estimates where the GPS was not working). It seems that my GPS overestimates distance by 10% or more sometimes, mainly due to frequent small incorrect elevation changes. I will attempt to look into this when I have some time in the future.
