hiking the West Highland Way in ScotlandWalking the West Highland Way

The West Highland Way is Scotland’s first official long distance walking route established in 1980.  It’s also one of the most scenic long distance hikes that I’ve done!

The 150 km (95 miles) route starts just outside of Glasgow, the largest city in Scotland. It finishes at the foot of Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in Scotland in Fort William. Conveniently known as the adventure capital of Scotland should you wish to continue your adventures.

You can book either a guided tour or self-guided tour through our trusted partner, Wilderness Scotland. I did a self-guided tour with them when I walked the West Highland Way and they made it so easy. All I had to was show up and hike.

The Wicklow Way is a great long distance hike in Ireland.

Walking the Wicklow Way in Ireland 

The Wicklow Way is Ireland’s oldest way-marked long-distance walk! The 128 km long walk takes you through the incredible Wicklow Mountains and through County Wicklow, known as the Garden of Ireland! You’ll even walk by Guinness Lake!

You can book a self-guided tour through our trusted partner, Ireland Ways.

Use the code ‘MONKEYS” and you’ll receive a €20 discount. I did a self-guided tour with them when I walked the Wicklow Way and would highly recommend it. It saves a ton of time.
