The West Highland Way
By (author) Terry Marsh
Guide to walking the West Highland Way National Trail from Milngavie, Glasgow to Fort William. This popular 95-mile long-distance route takes under a week. It starts by passing through the lush lowlands north of Milngavie into the rugged landscapes of Loch Lomond, Glen Falloch and Strath Fillan before heading for Rannoch Moor and Black Mount. Touching briefly on Glencoe, it climbs finally to the hidden glen of Lairig Mor before finishing in Fort William. Step-by-step route description is illustrated with extracts from OS mapping and colour photos and includes information about the Way’s ancient history and geology along the way. Lots of useful tips on preparing for a trekking trip, what to take and how to plan your itinerary (with suggestions for 6, 7 and 8-day schedules). This guidebook also contains a route description of the Way from Fort William to Glasgow (north to south).
