A compact guidebook which is ideal for anyone planning to walk the West Highland Way National Trail.

Cicerone's 'The West Highland Way' Guidebook covers the popular 95-mile long-distance route from Glasgow to Fort William, passing through some of Scotland's most stunning scenery.

This practical guide is fully illustrated with colour photos and OS mapping and includes many useful tips on preparing for your trip and essential items you should consider taking with you. Also included are suggested itineraries for walking the West Highland Way over 6, 7 and 8 days, with detailed information about the Way's ancient history and landmarks.

  • Seasons
    May-June and September-October are best time to walk the Way, although it is wise to avoid the first week in May, when there are motorcycle trials along sections of the route; July and August are very busy; if you set off mid-week, you will find the accommodation less crowded
  • Centres
    The West Highland Way begins in Milngavie, on the outskirts of Glasgow, and passes through only a few, small villages: Drymen; Balmaha; Crianlarich, Tyndrum and Kinlochleven before reaching Fort William
  • Difficulty
    Walkers need a good level of fitness and previous experience of long distance walking; you need to prepare yourself in advance by building up your walking distances; be fully equipped and prepared for all weathers
  • Must See
    The peaceful woodlands of Mugdoch Country Park; the magnificent expanse of Loch Lomond; the wilds of Glen Falloch; the history of Strath Fillan; and the wide expanses of Rannoch Moor and Black Mount

The collection of routes can also be viewed as an introduction to the delights of backpacking, and inspire further exploration. This guide is just one of a series covering our Great British Isles.
