West Highland Way Food Guide

Posted on Apr 11, 2016 by Meike van Krimpen

The West Highland Way is a world renowned long distance trail journeying 96 miles/151 kilometres through some of Scotland’s most inspiring landscapes.

Now there is nothing like trekking 9-15 miles/15-25 kilometres a day to work up a massive appetite! That is why we have investigated the best places to eat along the way and put them together in this nifty interactive West Highland Way Food Guide and Map.

This is a West Highland Way Map like no other! Taking into account the various budgets and tastes of the trekking foodie, this map shows everything from cafés, farm shops, distilleries and places where you can go fishing for your supper. Clicking on an icon will reveal to you that foodie destination’s highlights, a description, contact details and directions.

TIP: Click an icon under map to show locations of just that category. Click icon again to show all categories once more.

TIP: Clicking on directions will take you directly to Google Maps with the address already filled in, all you need to do is fill in your location.
Hopefully this foodie guide solves the age old problem of where to eat on the West Highland Way and also highlights some incredible destinations that are worth a visit even if you are not walking long distances every day.

Meike van Krimpen

With my parents' work taking my family away to exotic countries meant that I grew up between Pakistan, Sri Lanka and the Netherlands and have had the opportunity to visit some amazing countries along the way. This has left me with an unhealthy addiction to curry and all things spice, and also to travelling! When it was time to go to university I wandered off to Scotland for a new adventure and have somehow not managed to leave yet!
