West Highland Way goes the extra mile
Bookmark and Share
Those walking the West Highland Way may find themselves literally going the extra mile from this Saturday as the route extends from 95 miles to 96.

A special day of events is planned in Fort William at the northern end of the walk, where the route is being extended from its existing finish by the Ben Nevis Woollen Mill to a new finish marked by a sculpture in the town centre.

Piped bands will accompany those donning hiking boots to start the mile from the Woollen Mill at 13:30 BST, with the walk continuing along Belford Road to the West End of the High Street, ending at the new official finish in Gordon Square at 14:00 BST.

People planning to go walking along the route can start just north of Glasgow in Milngavie, with the route passing along the eastern shore of Loch Lomond and passing over Rannoch Moor, fringing Glencoe before reaching its high point at the Devil's Staircase.

It then passes through the Mamores and up Glen Nevis, with the Woollen Mill standing at the end of the road emerging from the Glen into Fort William.
