West Highland Way, Scottish Highlands

(4.6/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
Witness some of Scotland's most breathtaking scenery along West Highland Way, a long-distance footpath. Stretching 154.5 km (96 mi) from Milngavie up north to Fort William, the footpath traverses mysterious forests, barren moors, picturesque glens, and much more using several ancient roads. The way is broken up into several sections, so you can brave the whole length or just walk a portion. Be sure to bring a map and dress appropriately for Scotland's unpredictable weather. You'll find a range of accommodations and dining options in the friendly towns along the path. Use our Kinlochleven trip itinerary planner to arrange your visit to West Highland Way and other attractions in Kinlochleven.
