My name is Katie Featherstone, and I split my time between Scotland (mostly Islay, where I live) and the Icelandic Highlands. I'm the author of Bradt Guide's Inner Hebrides, a seasonal mountain hut warden in Fjallabak (Iceland), and a freelance writer predominantly focusing on hiking, history, and slow, sustainable travel.
I'm currently researching updates for Frommer's England and Scotland. You can find some of my other recent work in: the Guardian, Independent, TGO Magazine (Feb 22), Hidden Europe (Issue 66), Walk Highlands, Scottish Islands Explorer (Oct/Nov 22 and Dec 22/Jan 23), and Coast Magazine. In 2023, some of my walking routes will also be appearing in Trail Magazine.
On this website, you will find an awkward mixture of hiking instruction manuals, creative writing, and decade-old travel blogs. The most useful thing on here is probably my regularly updated Laugavegur instruction manual, which you should read before hiking the route for the first time.
