West Highland Way

West Highland Way

The West Highland Way is a long-distance footpath of 96 mi / 154 km in the Scottish Highlands, opened in 1980. Half the path runs over old cattle transport routes, military and carriage roads, the other half through dried stream beddings and rivers. The pathways of this section  are formed by a mixture of pebbles, stones and rocks, this surface makes the hike on some parts very heavy.

It is Britain's most popular hiking trail and walked annually by about 50,000 people, mostly from south to north. It is typically walked in 6 to 10 days. There are plenty of accommodations along the way, but you can also bring your tent for the night. You can camp at the places designated for this.
