Overview

Join Rob McWilliams on the wild, unpredictable, and stunningly beautiful slopes of Scotland's hills! Rob McWilliams spent a month climbing-or trying to-ten Scottish summits between the country's remote northwest and the outskirts of Glasgow. Join Rob on the wild, unpredictable, and stunningly beautiful slopes of Scotland's hills, from Ben Nevis-the highest and most popular of them all-to mountains far off the beaten track. Tired of corporate life, Rob quit his job to fulfill a stubborn ambition to walk the length of Scotland, a trek that led to his book, "The Kiss of Sweet Scottish Rain." He contributed the Taking a Hike column to CT newspapers for seven years. Rob has also written for A.T. Journeys, the official magazine of the Appalachian Trail, and Ctvisit.com. He does consulting work on information privacy, and volunteers with the Nature Conservancy, Appalachian Trail and other outdoor causes. This is an ONLINE Meeting on the Zoom platform.
