West Highland Way

The West Highland Way is a fantastic walk and was the first long distance footpath in Scotland. Established in 1980 by Lord Mansfield, the West Highland Way has enjoyed thousands of walkers over the decades experiencing the spectacular landscape of its 96 miles (154 kms)

From Milngavie on the outskirts of Glasgow, the Way winds its way northwards through some of Scotland's finest scenery towards the Highland town of Fort William famous for Scotland's highest mountain, Ben Nevis. A truly fabulous walk

The trail is very well signposted, using many ancient drove and military roads as it winds its way along the bonnie banks of Loch Lomond, across the wild Rannoch Moor and into historical Glencoe, the heart of the Highlands. Experience breathtaking views from the top of the Devil's staircase and enjoy your first glimpse of Ben Nevis as you descend into Fort William for the final stretch of your journey

Stage of Kingshouse on 7, 8 & 9 day walks – we are excited to be working with the Kingshouse Hotel again after an extensive refurbishment and new building. The new set up sees tour operators like ourselves being privy to reduced agency rates but there are only a limited number of these rates on any one night. Thus, once the hotel becomes busy and when the rates are gone, there is likely to be a supplement on the cost of these walks which traverse through the stage of Kingshouse. However, be rest assured that this will be discussed with you at the time of booking so that there are no surprises

Gemini Walks Top Tip

How many days should I take to walk the West Highland Way?

The best way to explain it is “if you don’t want to walk any more than 15 miles (24 km) in any one day then you have to take eight days to complete the walk. If you can cope with a stage of around 18.75 miles (29.75 km) then you can tackle the walk in seven days
