Wild and Free Children: Scotland Adventures

Walking/Hiking St. Cuthbert’s Way, Scotland.

Hiking St. Cuthbert’s Way is a great hiking route for wild and free children, Scotland (err…Scottish) Style!

In April 2019, the kids and I spent a week in Scotland. Our goal? To check out Edinburgh, Scotland.

But most importantly, we shared a goal of completing the 100K St. Cuthbert’s Way Holy Route. We walked the breathtaking and isolated route from Melrose to Holy Island in five memorable days.

The route is very remote. The off-the-beaten-path adventure is is an awesome opportunity for family bonding while hiking. You can read more about our hike in Hiking St. Cuthbert’s Way.

While hiking in Scotland, we came across the Wild and Free Children sign pictured above. The expression ‘Wild and Free’ is sometimes associated with interest-led homeschooling, sometimes called unschooling. Our family applies this homeschool model.
