West Highland Way - 10 Day Rambler
Explore the West Highland Way on a relaxed pace walking itinerary. Enjoy this affordable self-guided walking tour that includes cosy accommodation with breakfasts, 24/7 support, navigation app and daily luggage transfers.
This tour follows the 96-mile West Highland Way national long-distance trail through the south-western part of the Scottish Highlands. It is claimed by some to be the most popular long distance trail in the British Isles and is known as Scotland's best loved long distance route. It is the perfect entry-level long distance hike.
This itinerary begins at the official start of the West Highland Way at the obelisk in Milngavie just outside Glasgow. Your walk will include Loch Lomond, valley routes through the mountains round Crianlarich and open heather moorland across the Rannoch Moor wilderness area. You will pass close to sombre Glencoe, famed for its massacre of the MacDonald Clan, and finishes at Fort William near the foot of Ben Nevis. This is Britain's highest peak, which can be readily ascended if you're an experienced walker and aks our team to arrange an extra night in Fort William.
On this itinerary, the long stretch between Ardlui and Inveroran is split over two days. You can also opt for our 8-day itinerary that covers the walk in just one day with the option to shorten the route with an included taxi transfer.
The West Highland Way is a well-established and popular hiking route in Scotland, containing some landscapes of great beauty. The altitude range is from sea level to 1850 ft (4408 ft if Ben Nevis is climbed).
