About the trail

From its jagged mountains to its glittering lochs, the Scottish Highlands offer up truly epic countryside – and the West Highland Way clambers right through it. Although the trail begins in wooded lowlands and along pebbled lochsides, it soon rises past dramatic cascades and over windswept moorland onto rugged mountainsides.

With mighty peaks as a constant staggering backdrop, the West Highland Way clambers ascents such as the Devil’s Staircase to win breath-taking views across the Scottish Highlands. This is a gorgeous and immersive route, supported by the villages dotted along its length that provide warm, cosy places to rest up.

We offer multiple holiday options along this trail. If you wish to experience the entire trail, simply select the first option from the list below.

Mr Harrison, UK
“Stunning start, a bit wet and windy at the end, but fun for the entire time! We were very pleased with the arrangements and the accommodations.”
Dr Mcllroy, USA
“It was quite an experience. Enjoyed it thoroughly.”
Ms Kucera, Australia
“Thank you for all your arrangements - was a wonderful walk; busy, but not excessively, met interesting people and the scenery of course was spectacular. I had a permanent grin on my face! Have completed 9 trails now and the West Highland Way heads the list. The weather was kind, which always helps, but the mountains will tug, no, are already tugging me back. Great Glen Way as a 'starter' next April? As you may have surmised, I loved it!”
