My name is Katie Featherstone, and I split my time between Scotland and Iceland. I'm the author of Bradt Guide's Inner Hebrides, a seasonal mountain hut warden in the Icelandic Highlands, and a freelance writer predominantly focusing on hiking, history and slow, sustainable travel.
You can find some of my most recent work in the Guardian, TGO Magazine (Feb 22), the Independent, and Issue 66 of Hidden Europe. I also have upcoming articles and walking routes in Scottish Islands Explorer, Trail magazine, and Coast magazine.

In previous lives, I travelled the world, hitchhiking and volunteering, or travelling for days on sweaty buses. You can find a decade's worth of those adventures on this website, but I rarely write new blog posts now. The Iceland Laugavegur preparation articles are up-to-date, however.
I also work as a co-admin for @HI_Voices, a rotational Twitter account giving a voice to people in or from the Scottish Highlands and islands, and as media support for the charitable organisation Phone Credit for Refugees and Displaced People.
