Routes - West Highland Way

West Highland Way

The West Highland Way runs from the outskirts of Glasgow, through Lowlands and then Highlands, to Fort William near Glen Nevis. The route passes through Loch Lomond and Glen Coe following ancient trackways, once used by drovers and marauding clan armies. At 96 miles (154 Km) in length, it is usually walked in short sections. If you want to tackle the whole route, it is best walked from south to north, covering the easy sections first before venturing into the more rugged Highland terrain.
