The West Highland Way: Official Guide (Paperback)
Revised and and updated, this guidebook includes recent modifications to the West Highland Way route and is accompanied by a full-color folding map packaged together in a practical plastic wallet. The footpath is Scotland’s first Long Distance Route and remains the most popular, with more than 15,000 walkers tackling it each year. Running from Milngavie, on the outskirts of Glasgow, to Fort William, the 94.5 mile route passes along the east of Loch Lomond—the largest expanse of fresh water in Britain—and across the Rannoch Moor wilderness through some of the finest scenery of mountain and stream, woodland and moorland that Scotland has to offer.
