The West Highland Way in Scotland is a 95 mile (152 kilometres) way-marked walking trail. The route can be walked in either direction and for those looking for a longer walking holiday it can be linked to a walking holiday on The Great Glen Way.

This self guided Scottish walking holiday in Scotland’s West Highlands is through some of Scotland’s most historic land and makes a varied and interesting hiking tour. The West Highland Way passes through some of Scotland’s most stunning landscape, the magical lochs and moors full of wildlife. The highlights along the way are some of the West Highlands most famous. Loch Lomond, a centre for walkers and watersports for generations, is a great place to extend your stay and explore one of Scotland’s best loved lochs.

You can combine this walking holiday in Scotland with a walk along the Scottish Higlands Great Glen on from Fort William to Inverness on  The Great Glen Way for a longer walking holiday.

We use high quality guest houses, inns or small hotels with en-suite or private bathroom to ensure you are well rested each night after a busy day hiking and sightseeing. Rest assured that all our accommodation walking holiday providers are hand-picked and offer you that famous British hospitality.
