The West Highland Way is Scotland's most popular long-distance walking trail, quite possibly because it runs through some of the most iconic landscapes of the Scottish Highlands. The route is 96 miles long and runs from Milngavie to Fort William. On the way, you will walk through moorland, mountain passes, glens, and some of the most breathtaking landscapes in Scotland.

This 4-day tour is designed for those trekkers who don't have the time to complete the whole trek. The northern half of the West Highland Way starts in Tyndrum and ends in Fort William, and covers the last 4 of the 8 stages of the WHW. We will also take care of the accommodation arrangements in Tyndrum and Fort William before and after your WHW trek. Are you ready to discover the beauty of the Scottish Highlands?

After leaving Bridge of Orchy, the WHW joins the Old Military Road. After a short uphill climb, enjoy the dramatic views from the vantage point over Loch Tulla and Black Mount. Beyond Inveroran, the remote Rannoch Moor beckons. From Forest Lodge follows a climb to the edges of Rannoch Moor. Be prepared for inclement weather, as the terrain on this section is exposed and it can be difficult to cross in bad weather. Ba Bridge is halfway across the moor and is surrounded by beautiful views. A short walk on the left side of the bridge brings you to the ruins of Ba cottage, a lovely place to have lunch. As you follow the rolling Old Military Road, you'll walk past the Glencoe Ski Centre, Black Rock Cottage and one of Scotland's most famous mountains, Buachaille Etive Mor.
