Discover Scotland’s spectacular landscape on the West Highland Way, the first long distance footpath to be established in Scotland. This well-trodden path takes you on a journey through Scotland’s history, following in the footsteps of drovers, pilgrims, soldiers, clansmen and cattle-rushers.
The West Highland Way begins in Milngavie near Glasgow and after 95 miles (153 km) finishes in Fort William, at the foot of Ben Nevis, Britain’s highest mountain. Magnificent mountains, serene lochs and fast-flowing rivers combine to reward you with a matchless and ever changing landscape.
Along this route, you will pass through stunning Highland scenery, walk along the banks of Loch Lomond with great views of the mountains, and cross the remote wilderness of Rannoch Moor with its unique landscape. You’ll then head to Kinlochleven via the “Devil’s Staircase” before you finally reach Ben Nevis and Fort William, situated at the head of Loch Linnhe.
The West Highland Way connects with the Great Glen Way, which we also offer to walkers, who want to walk all the way from Milngavie to Inverness.
We offer a range of walking holidays along the West Highland Way – a 6, 7, 8 and 9 day option.
The West Highland Way is well sign posted throughout and will not unduly tax walkers who are of a reasonable level of fitness. However, the route does offer some challenges – one of the most testing sections is at Loch Lomond, whilst other sections are very exposed.
We offer four holidays covering the whole West Highland Way - the longer the holiday, the shorter the distance you have to walk each day and explore this amazing route.
