Summary

The continued musings of a hapless wanderer. Younger than Bill Bryson, smaller than Levison Wood, and hairier than Julia Bradbury. In his latest adventure, our bumbling yet affable narrator walks the 100 miles of the stunning and dramatic West Highland Way.

Join him on a memorable hike that takes in all the splendour of the Scottish Highlands. With grand imposing scenery and beautiful shimmering lochs. Mountain peaks, midges, Highland Cows, Irn-Bru, turnip pizzas, waterfalls, wild open moors and going to increasingly bizarre lengths to avoid sleeping in a tent. If you like the sound of any of these things, then this is undoubtedly the audiobook for you.

S Reynolds dies it again!!!

After reading Just Off for a Walk, I didn't think Stephen Reynolds would be able to top it... but in good old fashioned style, S Reynolds matched it, taking me on a journey through the Highlands, and a place I have never been.
With hilarious tales of woe and of Great feats (or should that be feels?) I am in awe of S Reynolds resolve and determination to walk through midge bites and scale Ben Nevis!

Loved it. Another light hearted gem of a book.

Really enjoy Stephen Reynolds approach to writing and walking. Light hearted and relaxed. Just getting out there and doing it with mindful forced acquaintances, musings and damn right making the most of the generous time he has.
This is the 2nd of his books I've read after Just off for a little walk and looking forwards to the 3rd Nomad en suite.

So beautiful to listen to

I think the appeal is that Stephen Reynolds is that he is not some super human, hard as nails explorer, walking the coastal paths and sleeping under hedges at night. He is like us, spends his days (maybe less of them now) in front of a screen and not sleeping very well at night and then manages these wonderful escapes on to our beautiful long distance trails, but aiming for a comfy bed each night. I hope there are more on the way :-)

Good if you have done the WHW

Reading some of the below reviews, I can agree with their critiques. The over use of ‘dear reader’ and pointless off stories do indeed become very frustrating! Also some of the writers opinions seem a little unjust. E.g constantly banging on about if you haven’t done Ben Nevis at the end you haven’t really done the WHW.
I only reached the end because I have a love for the WHW and Scotland in general. I have completed it once and plan on doing it again (both times not completing Ben Nevis at the end). I think it helped I knew of the places he was describing.

Deeply Dull. Nothing happens. Irritating writing

The author seems a nice guy and good on him for writing about his hobbies. I am sure it's nice to write about what you love to do. I just don't really find the 'adventure' has any real reason to be shared with the wider world especially at cost. Write a blog for family and friends and maybe use kindle unlimited to hone the skills of writing. It's an art form to turn the boring into beautiful writing. the author is no artist. Ration the word old. The old knee, the old boots, the old spine, the old shoulder, the old etc etc.

Thoroughly dull story and irritating writing.

Don't give up though dear author. Go somewhere interesting to offset the old lack of writing talent or learn the old art of writing. Just give it away for free until it gets good.

Don't let me put you off

Didn't enjoy as much as book 1, perhaps because I don't know Scotland, I wasn't as interested? It was okay but felt a bit dull for me, and though I enjoyed some parts, overall I was glad to finish really. Can't really put my finger on it. I am however still looking forward to the next in the series!

Went downhill after his first book

Really enjoyed author's walk along the South West Coast Path and therefore eagerly purchased this, his next outing. Sadly after the first few chapters I began to lose concentration through a combination of not that interesting "ramblings " - excuse the pun - and the increasing annoying use of being addressed as "dear reader." I didn't quite manage to finish the walk which is a pity as I'm sure that with some tweeking the story line could have been nearer the mark of the first book.
