The West Highland Way is the first, and remains the most famous, of Scotland’s Great Trails, running for 96 miles (154 km) through superb scenery. Starting from the outskirts of Glasgow, it passes through Scotland’s first National Park, along the shores of beautiful Loch Lomond, across the wilds of Rannoch Moor and ends in Fort William at the foot of Ben Nevis, Britain’s highest mountain. This new edition of our guidebook describes the route from Milngavie northward, including the improved lochside path north of Rowardennan and the final “extra mile” into Fort William. It has more pages, many more photos and much larger scale mapping than before, yet it’s lighter and more rainproof than ever.

This guidebook contains all you need to plan and enjoy the West Highland Way:

the Way in sections, with summaries of distance, terrain and altitude profiles
where to find food and drink, accommodation and how to split the distance
concise background on the history, heritage and wildlife
information about side-trips, e.g. Ben Lomond and Ben Nevis
background information about Loch Lomond, history, habitats and wildlife
planning information for travel by car, train, bus or plane
15 pages with detailed route mapping at 1:42,500
in full colour, with 120 photographs
rucksack-friendly and on rainproof paper.
