West Highland Way

The West Highland Way is a 95 mile walking holiday from Milnegavie in Glasgow to Fort William in Lochaber. Most people do the whole walk in 5-6 days and say over in a different location most nights. Find out more on the Visit Fort William website

The West Highland Way is 152km (95 miles) long. The walk links Milngavie, just outside Glasgow, to Fort William in the Highlands. From the outskirts of Scotland's largest city to the foot of its highest mountain, following the shores of the largest freshwater loch - Loch Lomond, it passes from the lowlands, across the Highland boundary Fault and on into the Scottish Highlands.

Much of the Way follows ancient and historic routes of communication, and makes use of military roads built by troops to help control the Jacobite Clans and the drover roads along which Highlanders herded their cattle and sheep to market in the lowlands.

The West Highland Way is extremely popular with walkers from all over the world. If you are considering the walk, which usually take 5-6 days, take a visit to official WHW website.

You are advised to arrange accommodation in all your overnight destinations before departure. Kinlochleven, Glen Nevis and Fort William are all part of the West Highland Way. We also recommend taking a two or three day break at the end of the Way in Fort William. If you've got any stamina left and your feet don't hurt too much, there's always Ben Nevis... check out our LateRooms link for accommodation along the Way.
