  • Rannoch moor and Scotland’s most remote licensed inn.
  • Walking through Glencoe and Glen Nevis.

Scotland’s first official long distance route links Milngavie to Fort William – a distance of 96 miles - from the northern outskirts of Glasgow, to the foot of Ben Nevis at Fort William (the southwestern part of the Scottish Highlands). 

The route on offer on this self-guided tour offers the entire path starting from Milngavie, over seven full walking days. The West Highland Way is a well-established walking route with an altitude range from sea level to 563m. The route 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. 

There is a wide range of different terrains, ranging from lowland moors, dense woodland and rolling hills, to high mountainous regions in the Scottish Highlands. This variety of environments provides habitats for a diverse range of wildlife species, both flora and fauna. Some species are more common than others and some are rarely seen.

Itinerary & Travel

Itinerary Details

Whilst every effort will be made to adhere to the outlined itinerary and advertised programme, local conditions can change due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances. This may mean that routes and timings need to be amended or the order of days may change, sometimes at short notice.

Your Itinerary

Day 1



Make your own way to Dryman and check in at your accommodation. Find a suitable place to have your evening meal.

Day 2

Drymen to Rowandennan




  • Time

    5 hours

  • Distance

    13.6 miles

  • Ascent/Descent


You'll view gentle scenery on the bonny banks of Loch Lomond. Passing highland cattle in the fields, the route winds up through forest and across the moors up to Conic Hill, which from the summit gives great views over the loch, and across the islands there. This marks the boundary of the Highland fault and officially the start of the Highlands. The way drops down to Balmaha by the water, and then winds its way towards Rowardennan along the Loch shore with tree-framed views. Rowardennan marks the road head, and a convenient place to stay for the night.

Day 3

Rowardennan to Ardlui




  • Distance

    13 miles

Today's journey leads you along the Ben Lomond's shadow, predominantly tracing the path along the edge of the Loch. While there are no daunting inclines to conquer, you'll encounter a few brief, steep rises and descents. Along the way, you'll pass by Rob Roy's prison and cave, locations where he sought refuge during challenging times and detained prisoners at his discretion. Consider pausing for a refreshment break at the Inversnaid hotel before proceeding to Ardleish. Here, you have the option to hoist a buoy on a pole to signal the ferryman's attention. For a nominal fee of approximately £4 (not included), the ferryman will pick you up and transport you to the hotel on the Loch's western side. Alternatively, if you prefer a more extended route or if inclement weather makes the water crossing less favourable, you can opt to continue to Beinglas Farm or the Inverarnan Drover's Inn. From there, you can arrange for a taxi (not included) to transfer you to your destination.


Day 4

Ardlui to Inveroran




  • Distance

    13/15.5 miles

Today presents two options: The journey to Loch Tulla can be quite long, suitable for strong walkers, but we recommend considering the taxi service (included) if you prefer a more manageable day. You can opt for a ride to Crianlarich or even further, reducing the day's distance.

Crianlarich is nestled beneath another prominent peak, Ben Mor. The valley route will lead you past the historic St. Fillan's Priory, connected to both Robert The Bruce and Rob Roy. Your path will take you through the Dalrigh moraines, the very site where Bruce faced defeat in 1306, and onward to the former mining settlement of Tyndrum, known for its discovery of a gold seam. Continuing on, you'll pass the imposing peaks of Ben Lui and Ben Dorain before reaching the Bridge of Orchy, where you can savour a quick dram. Finally, your journey leads you to Loch Tulla (Inveroran), a picturesque lake framed by ancient Scots pines, remnants of the ancient Caledonian forest.

Day 5

Inveroran to Kingshouse




  • Distance

    13 miles

Begin your journey by following the ancient military road that meanders across the untamed landscapes and heather-covered expanses of Rannoch Moor. As you progress, you'll pass by Ba Bridge, often regarded as the most remote point along the route. The vistas before you continually widen, revealing breathtaking views of once-glacier-filled corries. It's not uncommon to spot deer and witness a captivating interplay between the rugged terrain, serene lakes, majestic mountains, and the ever-changing sky.

The military road eventually descends to the old drovers' inn, situated near the Gateway to Glencoe. Here, you'll find yourself in the shadow of what may be the most awe-inspiring mountain of your journey, Buachaille Etive Mor, often referred to as the shepherd of Etive Mor.

As for accommodations, please note that Kings House requires a minimum two-night stay if your reservation includes a Saturday. In such cases, you'll be accommodated at the Glencoe Mountain Resort in Microlodges, equipped with one double bed and two single beds. Facilities include shower and toilet blocks, as well as a café open from 9 am to 8:30 pm (serving hot food until 7:30 pm). Remember to bring your own sleeping bag, liner, and towel for your stay.

Day 6

Kinghouse to Kinlochleven




  • Distance

    10 miles

Starting at the Kings House Hotel, your path leads you alongside one of Scotland's most remarkable mountains, Buachaille Etive Mor. Continuing onward, you'll ascend the Devil's Staircase to an elevation of 1,850 feet. Don't be discouraged; this section of the West Highland Way is well-engineered and offers a surprisingly manageable ascent. Along the way, you'll be treated to breathtaking vistas that provide a splendid perspective of the terrain you've covered thus far.

Following this ascent, a lengthy descent awaits, taking you to sea level at the head of Loch Leven. Here, you'll be rewarded with panoramic views that encompass the Blackwater Dam, Loch Leven, and the iconic Pap of Glencoe.

Day 7

Kinlochleven to Fort William





  • Time

    6 hours

  • Distance

    15 miles

  • Ascent/Descent


The day kicks off with a challenging ascent beneath the towering slopes of the Mamore Hills, tracing the historic Victorian hunting trails. Once you've conquered this initial climb, your route leads you back onto the ancient military road. Crossing the Lairigmor Pass, you'll journey through a thick, fragrant coniferous forest before emerging into the stunning Glen Nevis, where you'll pass by the base of Ben Nevis, the tallest peak in Britain, soaring to an impressive height of 4,408 feet.

Day 8

Final day



The tour ends after breakfast.

Spending Money

Holiday Budgeting

As you plan your holiday budget, it's essential to account for expenses such as drinks, meals not covered in the holiday price, entrance fees not included, optional local excursions, and any souvenirs or additional services like laundry.

If your holiday does not include dinners (see itinerary) we recommend budgeting an additional £25-30 per day.


Tips are not included in the holiday price. Although entirely at your own discretion, tipping is an important aspect of tourism and hospitality life and expectations are fairly high.  We strongly recommend when receiving good service you make a tip to the local supplier.

The Ramble Worldwide Outdoor Trust is passionate about making the outdoors more accessible for more people from all communities. We grant funds to many organisations and have recently partnered with Mind Over Mountains, Adaptive Grand Slam and other groups to create an enduring impact on people’s lives and to support them to enjoy the outdoors. In addition, the Trust makes many small grants to local organisations such as Ramblers Groups, Walkers are Welcome, My kind of Books and recently provided a small grant, via his scouting group, to enable a young man whose family had fallen on hard times to complete his DofE Gold award.

Patron of the Trust is the renowned explorer, Mark Wood. Over 20 years Mark has undertaken expeditions to some of the most remote parts of our planet. Our shared values make for an exciting partnership, and we believe that by standing shoulder to shoulder we can encourage people from all communities to enjoy being active outdoors in whatever way suits them best.
