Scotland: West Highland Way

Dave P

We're planning to walk the West Highland Way, Scotland's best known long distance walking route; 96 miles from Milngavie to Fort William. We're planning 8 days walking, between 7 and 15 miles each day, plus a couple of rest days and travelling days, making a 12 day trip, starting 16th September. We'll stay at hostels and bunkhouses, and use a baggage transfer service.

This trip is now fully booked.
