Milngavie, Scotland

User Rating     : 5 out of 5

The West Highland Way is Scotland’s first official long distance walking route taking in some of the best of the country and is full of folklore and legend. It starts in Milngavie on the outskirts of Glasgow and stretches 154km to Fort William which is at the foot of Scotland’s highest mountain, Ben Nevis. This route takes around a week to complete and passes the shores of Loch Lomond, through Strathfillan and Glen Falloch and onto mysterious Glencoe.

West Highland Way

The West Highland Way climbs the Devil’s Staircase and descends to the sea at the River Leven before entering Lairigmoor and Glen Nevis. With a wide range of terrain from mountain trails to moorland and valleys this is a classic route that is one of the best in the world and known for sightings of wildlife. Along the West Highland Way there are hostels, guest houses and camp sites for walkers and several places to get a meal although all walkers must be prepared for sudden changes in the weather and take appropriate supplies.
