West Highland Way

The West Highland Way was the first long distance footpath to be established in Scotland. The route begins in Milngavie near Glasgow and after 95 miles of outstanding scenery, finishes in Fort William, at the foot of Ben Nevis, Britain’s highest mountain. The West Highland Way connects with the Great Glen Way, which Mickledore also offers to walkers, who want to walk all the way from Milngavie to Inverness.

The West Highland Way threads through Scotland’s history, following in the footsteps of drovers, pilgrims, soldiers, clansmen and cattle-rushers. Some of the walking is straightforward and some of it involves scrambling. It is important to note that some areas can be very exposed and must be taken seriously, as the weather in Scotland is very unpredictable.
