The West Highland Way is one of the World’s best walks, it’s a classic long-distance trek, covering a distance of 95 miles (152km) from Milngavie on the outskirts of Glasgow to Fort William in the Highlands.
The magic of walking in Scotland can be distilled into this long-distance walking route. It’s the sense of challenge, purpose and camaraderie that envelope this love letter to long-distance hiking. Joining a West Highland Way guided walking holiday allows you to fully appreciate the stunning scenery, learn about the area’s history and legends, as well as identifying the flora and fauna along the route.
The route travels along the ‘bonnie banks’ of Loch Lomond, across the atmospheric Rannoch Moor, past dramatic Glencoe and over the high pass of the Devil’s Staircase before finishing in Fort William, at the foot of Britain’s highest mountain, Ben Nevis. We provide baggage transfer, so each evening you’ll arrive at our hand-picked accommodation where your luggage will be waiting for you, allowing you to travel light. All you’ll need to think about on this classic itinerary is putting one foot in front of the other and immersing yourself in the spectacular scenery of one of the world’s greatest long-distance treks. You can do it faster but we prefer to slow things down and appreciate this iconic walking trail over 7 days.
The maximum group size for this hike is 16. If there are more than 10 then there will be two guides.
In addition to this guided walking holiday, we also offer a self-guided package which may provide you with more flexibility.
