Hiking 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. You can read about my experience hiking the West Highland Way here.
