Through interviews with hikers along the West Highland Way, our study aims to understand how we use our bodies as a source of information and how our bodies interpret information from the environment around us. Participants reported that physical interaction with the surrounding environment was key to informing memorable experiences and connecting with nature through their journeys had a positive effect on their state of mind.
