Foreword by Cameron McNeish

"It’s the sort of long distance route that most keen walkers dream of. A long tough trek through some of the most majestic, remote and stunningly beautiful landscape you could dare imagine".

International Appalachian Trail

Coast Alive

The goal of the International Appalachian Trail (IAT) is to extend its trail network to all countries and regions once united by the supercontinent Pangea more than 250 million years ago, when the Appalachian, Caledonian, and Atlas Mountains were formed by earth's plate tectonics.The CWT and Wester Ross Alliance (WRA) have joined with the IAT thus completing another vital link in the chain, when completed it will form the longest hiking route in the World.


The CWT is a unique addition to the IAT being a geographical area rather than

a set trail, all other sections of the IAT are waymarked routes.
