From Milngavie to Fort Williams, The West Highland Way is Scotland’s most popular long distance walking route.
Along the route you will experience the impressive scenery of the Scottish Highlands and islands, the breathtaking lochs along the way and the ever-changing landscape — from mountains to rivers to open moorlands.
The West Highland Way was officially opened in 1980 and it was Scotland’s first designated long distance route. Nowadays there are approximately 120,000 people using it every year, and 36,000 visitors walking the whole trail.
