This is an amazing, fun, and scenic way to see the Highlands of Scotland. This is a well marked path that leads you through numerous villages, so a pint at the end of each day is easy to find. A walk along the Way also...More

We took seven days to do the West Highland Way, taking the easy route of staying in inns and having our luggage transferred. Somehow we thought going in that a 96 mile hike wouldn't be that hard - we're in great shape. But we had...More
