The West Highland Way

    The West Highland Way: Scotland’s first official long distance route was originally conceived in the 1960s. It was completed in October 1980 and links Milngavie to Fort William, a distance of 152km (95 miles). From the outskirts of Scotland’s largest city to the foot of its highest mountain, following the shores of its largest freshwater loch it passes from the lowlands, across the Highland Boundary Fault and on into the Scottish Highlands. The West Highland Way passes through a wide range of different terrains, ranging from lowland moors, through dense woodland and rolling hills, to high mountainous regions.

    Many walkers flock to the West Highland Way, perhaps because of its popularity and the social side walking as you certainly will see many other people. However, if that’s not your bag and you really want a truly memorable experience of wide open spaces less the crowds then the Southern Upland Way has got to be your next challenge.
