Scotland has more than two dozen official long-distance trails through moors, peat bogs and forests.As first-time walkers in Scotland, my companion and I used a travel company to plan our route, book accommodations and arrange baggage transfers. Like the wildly variable Scotland landscape, there's no end of ways to enjoy the walks.A runner recently set a record walking the West Highland way in under 14 hours. We did the standard itinerary: 95 miles (150 km) in seven days.It's pouring rain through moors and forests, then up and steeply down Conic Hill on the boundary fault separating lowland Scotland from the highlands.The rain is back, as are the sheep.The path starts on the glen floor, zigzags up through woods and descends through spectacular moorland toward Loch Tulla.The wind is fierce but rain holds off.We start in sunshine near Glencoe, feeling like tiny blips on the massive glen floor surrounded by towering peaks. Soon we're cloaked in heavy mist on the Devil's Staircase, a zigzag ascent to the Way's highest point at 1,800 feet (550 meters).
