Scotland: West Highland Way

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.

Provisional new date for our postponed Easter trip. We'll be staying in the Carlisle Diocesan Youth Centre at St John's-in-the-Vale, nestled in the North Lakeland hills, a remote and rugged location, yet only 4 miles from Keswick.

We've got the Centre for 5 nights. You'll need to bring a sleeping bag and pillowcase.

Location: St Johns-in-the-Vale CA12 4UB, grid ref NY306224, ///panics.multiples.steam. From A66 at Threlkeld, follow B5322 south for 1½ miles then turn right following signs for Youth Centre.
