West Highland Way

The West Highland Way was Scotland’s first long distance path.


The 96 mile (154 km) route starts at Milngavie (north of Glasgow) passes through Mugdock Country Park, follows the shores of Loch Lomond, passing Ben Lomond, through Glen Falloch and Strathfillan, crossing Rannoch Moor, past Buachaille Etive Mor to the head of Glencoe, climbing the Devil’s Staircase, descending to sea level to cross the River Leven at the head of Loch Leven before entering Lairigmor and Glen Nevis and finishes at Gordon Square in Fort William.

Depending how energetic you are the walk can be done in a few days right up to over a week. For most walkers, assuming you start in Milngavie and do the path in a northerly direction, Drymen lies at the end of your first day’s walk.
