The West Highland Way is arguably the most famous walking route in Scotland. Steeped in history, this wonderful long distance path takes you north, from the bustling commuter town of Milngavie (pronounced mul-guy), to the Highland tourist hub of Fort William, nestled in the shadow of Britain’s highest mountain, Ben Nevis (1,345 metres).
From the rolling East Dunbartonshire countryside and the waterside paths of Loch Lomond, to the remote, wide open spaces of Rannoch Moor and the stunning mountain range of Glencoe; the variety of landscapes along the way makes this one of Scotland’s premier walking routes.
The route is very well signposted, with well-maintained paths and tracks throughout. Accommodation, services and refreshments are also strategically located from start to finish, providing opportunities for a comfortable and relaxing end to a tough day’s walking.
