I recently completed The West Highland Way. We started in Milngavie and ended in Fort William. We booked through Absolute Escapes who did an excellent job of reserving lodging at B&Bs or hostels. Baggage transfer was reliable. The walk itself was amazing and the weather...More

Nice long trail. Lovely landscapes. But a very busy one. Some difficulties for accommodation, although I 've booked 2 months in advance. I walked in late May. Lucky sunny days but midges ready to sting. Part of the path is not far from the noisy...More

We completed this in six days with two additional days to climb Ben Lomond and Ben Nevis. First two days were fairly easy going up to Rowardennan via Conic Hill (which is worth the detour), but then three days of longer walks (20mls, 17mls, 18mls)...More
