The West Highland Way

Updated: Aug 4, 2021

The West Highland Way (WHW) is one of the most famous walking routes in Scotland. Although hard work every single second of it is beyond worth it.

The West Highland Way stretches 96 miles (154 Km) from Milngavie to Fort William, taking in a huge variety of scenery along the way, from countryside parks to loch-shores and open moorlands to steep mountains.

Normally the route is completed from south to north, the thinking behind this being the southern stages are easier and will prepare you for the more demanding northern stages.

Due to the variety of distances involved, these sections should not necessarily be considered as a days activity. Planning of stage lengths should be based upon ability and fitness and the opportunities available to explore places of interest along the route.


  • Milngavie to Drymen: 12 miles/19 km

  • Drymen to Rowardennan: 14 miles/22.5 km

  • Rowardennan to Inverarnan: 14 miles/22.5 km

  • Inverarnan to Tyndrum: 12 miles/19.5 km

  • Tyndrum to Inveroran: 9 miles/14.5 km

  • Inveroran to Kingshouse : 10 miles/16 km

  • Kingshouse to Kinlochleven: 9 miles/ 14.5 km

  • Kinlochleven to Fort William: 16 miles/24 km
