Scotland is known for its rugged natural beauty, and during this 9-day trek we will explore the breathtaking landscapes along the 96 mile (154 km) West Highland Way, one of the best long distance walking routes in the UK.
The trek begins in the town of Milngavie, and, after a week of trekking northward, ends in the town of Fort William. Along our route, we will enjoy the scenery around Loch Lomand, the largest freshwater lake in Britain, before we explore the majestic Trossachs National Park and trek in the highlands of Scotland. While the trail starts with gentle rolling hills through woods, farmland, and valley floors, the terrain becomes steeper and rockier as we enter Rannoch Moor, the Devil’s Staircase and, finally, the mountains of Glencoe. A day-by-day outline of the route is provided below.
This program includes 7 full days of trekking, plus an additional 2 days for arrival and departure. Due to the length of the program, the distance covered, as well as the challenging nature of the terrain, participants should have a good level of fitness to participate in this trip. We will stay at hotels and B&Bs along the route, and try to support family-run establishments as much as possible. We will also eat at local restaurants and pubs, and, of course, stop for a whisky tasting along the way. You will only need to carry a daypack, as this trip includes luggage support.
Should you wish to stay on in Fort William after this program ends, we can arrange for a variety of different activities in the town considered by many to be the outdoor capital of Scotland.
