The West Highland Way

View our West Highland Way Gallery here.

The West Highland Way was opened on October 6th 1980 and became the first officially designated footpath in Scotland. This Scottish walk is 96 miles long and runs from Milngavie (north of Glasgow) to Fort William in the Scottish Highlands. It is the most popular walk in Scotland with its outstanding scenery.

The path is traditionally walked from south to north. As well as increasing the sense of adventure, taking the route in this direction keeps the sun from one’s eyes.

The path officially starts in Milngavie town centre (approx 25 minutes by train from Glasgow Central Station), Most walkers arrive at the railway station where the path quickly enters into open countryside. It proceeds by way of country roads, an abandoned railway, the Queen Elizabeth Forest Park and scenic Conich Hill then to reach Balmaha on Loch Lomond. From here, the route follows the isolated, wooded, eastern shores of the loch via Rowardennan and Inversnaid to Inverarnan.

The Way then follows Glen Falloch northward to Crianlarich then north west along Strathfillan to Tyndrum. The way then enters Glen Orchy before crossing the desolate yet beautiful Rannoch Moor and descending into Glen Coe. From here, the route climbs the Devil’s staircase before a great descent to sea level at Kinlochleven. The final stage skirts, an old military road which descends into Glen Nevis before finishing in Fort William.

The last stage passes the foot of Ben Nevis and many walkers crown their achievement by climbing the highest mountain in Britain.

The route is commonly walked in seven to eight days, although the more experienced and fitter walkers do it in five to six however less hurried progress is usually the choice of most walkers, allowing time to appreciate the countryside along the way.

The Rob Roy Way

View our Rob Roy Way Gallery here.

The Rob Roy Way is a Scottish long distance walk that runs from Drymen to Pitlochry. The path was created in 2002 and runs for 77 miles.

The route crosses the highland boundary fault, a geographical fault where the highlands meet the lowlands. It provides spectacular views overlooking Loch Lubnaig, Loch Earn, Loch Venacher and Loch Tay.

The way takes its name from the famous folk hero and outlaw Rob Roy MacGregor of the early 18th Century, it traverses countyside that he knew well and travelled frequently.

Besides Drymen and Pitlochry the Rob Roy Way also passes through Aberfoyle, Callander, Strathyre, Killin, Ardtalnaig and Aberfeldy.

The route begins through the forests of the Trossachs before a long stretch of cycleway that leads through fine Glens to Killin. The route then climbs high into the hills before descending to follow the quiet and attractive road along the southern shores of Loch Tay. The main route then takes in a fine terrace with magnificent views before descending to Aberfeldy before the final stretch along the river and over the moors to Pitlochry.
