THE WEST HIGHLAND WAY

Scotland's Great Trails-Slighe na Gàidhealtachd an Iar

The 154Km (96miles) Route starts at Milngavie passes through Mugdock Country Park, follows the shores of Loch Lomond, passing Ben Lomond, through Glen Falloch and Strathfillan, crossing Rannoch Moor, past Buachaille Etive Mor to the head of Glencoe, climbing the Devil’s Staircase, descending to sea level to cross the River Leven at the head of Loch Leven before entering Lairigmor and Glen Nevis and finishes at Gordon Square in Fort William.

The terrain ranges from lowland moors, dense woodland and rolling hills, to high mountainous regions in the Scottish Highlands. These environments provide habitats for a diverse range of wildlife species, both flora and fauna .

Beastie Warning

All walkers should be aware that the tick population appears to have greatly increased this year. It is recommended that you check for ticks at the end of the days walk and have a tick remover to extract the insect. Even better to check after each stop.  More information can be found at http://www.lymediseaseaction.org.uk/about-ticks/
