The West Highland Way is a classic, long-distance trail and the first of its kind in Scotland. Stretching 154 km (96 miles) from Milngavie on the edge of Glasgow to Fort William in the Highlands, this incredibly scenic route traverses a landscape rich in history, heritage and natural beauty.
Winding its way north, the route ribbons along the bonnie banks of Loch Lomond, across the sweeping and atmospheric Rannoch Moor, and past the dramatic Glencoe to finish at the foot of Ben Nevis – Scotland’s highest mountain. It follows old drover trails and 18th-century military roads, picks its way up the Devil’s Staircase and offers breathtaking and ever-changing evocative views.
On the self guided version of this iconic trail, spanning a total of 9-nights and 10-days, we arrange your accommodation, your baggage transfers and provide you with detailed notes, maps and insider tips. With no need to worry about logistics, enjoy this fantastic route entirely unencumbered and make the most of your wonderful Scottish adventure.
Please note: Total daily distances are given for each stage but will vary slightly as you also need to walk to your accommodation each day, which will usually add a short distance.
