West Highland Way 1 day Hiking Tour from Edinburgh
Enjoy a fully Guided 7.5 mile (11.1km) Hike on section of the West Highland Way in the Highlands of Scotland on a ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ walking tour departing Edinburgh
The West Highland Way is probably one of the most famous multi-day hikes in Scotland. People from all over the world come to complete either small sections of the walk or the entire 96 miles! And it’s not hard to see why!
Whether you want to complete the whole route or are just in it for the views, this one-day hike is perfect to get a taste of what the West Highland Way has to offer.
You’ll be departing from Edinburgh and travelling straight for the beautiful village of Drymen, which is our starting location for this hike.
Home to one of the oldest pubs in the country, you’ll learn some interesting facts about the village. From the car park, we begin our hike through Garabhan Forest.
Whilst walking through this enchanted forest, the fascinating tale of why the road was constructed will leave you wondering what life was really like during one of the bloodiest periods in Scottish history, The Jacobite Uprisings.
With the forest now behind us, the open moorland now stretches out to our next destination, Conci Hill. Part of an ancient fault line, Conic hill offers spectacular views looking across Loch Lomond, the largest inland lake in Britain.
Your guide will feed you intriguing facts about Loch Lomond, from its maximum depth to the strange animals inhabiting one of the islands. Animals you wouldn’t normally associate with Scotland.
After some photographs of your achievements in conquering this beautiful hill, we’ll descend down to the stunning village of Balmaha for a well-deserved lunch.
Now that we’ve stuffed our faces in the delicious food from the Oak Tree Inn, it’s time to wait for the bus back to our starting location. The bus takes 10 minutes to reach our stop and a very short walk to the car park sees us returned to the van.
From here we’ll make our way back to the day’s pick-up location, Edinburgh
