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 .

East Loch Lomond WHW Diversion.

WHW trail diversion is in place between Sallochy and Lochan Maoil Dhuinne (see attached).
The trail is signed at the campsite and Lochan Maoil Dhuinne with added arrows along the C6.

The works will continue for 3 weeks with a break over the Easter weekend (Friday - Monday), the diversion will be removed for this period.

Please do not ignore the signs at Sallochy as that will waste time walking up to the works site which will be closed off to access. The Ross point road will also waste time as this is not in the correct direction. The onsite contractor has placed a no access sign and tape to the Ross point.
