West Highland Way
The West Highland Way is Scotland’s most popular and prime long distance walking route. Many of the pictures and links you see here aren’t far off the route from Milngavie (pronounced “Mill-guy”) near ‘Glasgow to Fort William. The full route is 96 miles long and might take you roughly 5 days to do but the beauty of it is you can dip in and out of it due it closely following the A82. The best direction to do the walk is from south to north and there is plenty of food & drink stops and accommodation on the Way.
