Guided West Highland Way walking holiday

The start of the West Highland Way walking holiday in Milngavie

Early Spring and late Autumn are great times for doing the West Highland Way, the colours are either fresh and vibrant or very mellow, it’s cooler, the Midges are missing and it’s quieter. It links Milngavie on the outskirts of Glasgow to Fort William at the foot of Ben Nevis. 96 miles of superb variety and landscapes becoming grander by the day.

You’ll pass through some of the best scenery in the lowlands and highlands of Scotland, passing Loch Lomond, Rannoch Moor and the Devil’s Staircase. The gradually changing landscapes are forever memorable.

The finish of the West Highland Way in Fort William

Scotland’s first long-distance route provides a unique chance to experience the subtle change in scenery and terrain from the gentler south to more mountainous north.

No worries about getting lost either as we provide a knowledgeable, fun walking guide. Just sign up and enjoy!

Day 1: Rendezvous in Stirling at 9.00am and travel to Milngavie. After a short introduction start the West Highland Way in the heart of the town. The first day’s destination is the village of Drymen, about 12mls (20km) away.

Day 2: Now the Way heads through Loch Lomond & the Trossachs National Park. We head from Drymen, through the Garadhban forest, round Conic Hill, and along the shores of Loch Lomond, to Rowardennan, approx. 14mls (23km) with lots of short ups and downs. Today’s highlight - crossing into the Highlands and the views of Loch Lomond from Conic Hill.

Day 3: Walk by the "Bonnie Bonnie Banks" of the eastern shores of Loch Lomond to Inverarnan, about 14mls (24km) with quite a bit of up and down. Woodlands and water are never far away.
