Overview

This 10 day, 9 night trekking trip, is one of the classic treks of the world, covering 100 miles from Milngavie on the outskirts of Glasgow to Fort William in the Highlands. The West Highland Way route travels along the bonnie banks of Loch Lomond, across the atmospheric Rannoch Moor, past dramatic Glencoe and onwards to finish at the foot of Ben Nevis, Britain's highest mountain. It combines daily moderate/strenuous hiking (averaging 11 miles per day, with our longest day being 15 miles). Elevation gain ranges each day, with our highest being 2,100 ft. We will carry our day packs and lunch each day. We will dine near/at our new accommodation each morning and evening, sampling local fare. The accommodations range from small guesthouses, Highland inns, small hotels and bed and breakfast establishments which will be of a 3 or 4-star standard. Our bags will be transferred for us each day. The unpredictable nature of the climate means it's not uncommon to experience all four seasons in one day, so it is important to be prepared for variable weather. You can expect average maximum temperatures to range from approximately 7°C (45°F) to 13 °C (65°F) during the months of May and June.
