• The West Highland Way

Opened in 1980, the West Highland Way was Scotland’s first Long Distance Route and remains the most popular, with more than 15,000 walkers tackling it each year. It runs from Milngavie, on the outskirts of Glasgow, to Fort William. The 152km route passes along the east of Loch Lomond, the largest expanse of fresh water in Britain, and across Rannoch Moor, Scotland’s grandest wilderness, through some of the finest scenery of mountain and stream, woodland and moorland, that Scotland has to offer.

This eleventh edition of the Official Guide has been fully revised and updated to include new information and photography and a new full-colour folding map prepared for this edition by Nicolson Digital.

From reviews of previous editions

‘If the objective of a guide book is to impart essential information, then this guide achieves that and famously; minute directional detail, location of campsites, bunkhouses, hostels, huts and bothies, services and supplies, equipment, training and preparation, countryside code, even a map ... But this guide exceeds that purpose. It is an evocation of all that is best about Scotland and its countryside’ – Bruce Sandison, The Herald

'An excellent feature is a map of the entire 95-mile route... a very well-produced package.' High
