Seasons: May to September is best. July and August are very busy. Also avoid the first week in May (motorcycle trials between Bridge of Orchy and Fort William). Try to set off mid-week to avoid most crowds. Centres: Milngavie, then along the route Crainlarich, Tyndrum, Bridge of Orchy, Kinlochleven, Fort William. Difficulty: Neither easy nor particularly demanding, it is a route of considerable appeal to walkers of reasonable fitness, who are prepared for a multi-day expedition. Must See: The many changes in the character of the landscape, from lowland Scotland to the highlands, passing beside or along ancient drove roads, then high into the mountains of the Mamores and the south side of Glen Nevis.

This second edition of the popular guide to the West Highland Way provides an updated and current description of the route from Milngavie, Glasgow, to Fort William. The 95 miles (152km) of the route, which was opened in 1980, passes through the lowlands to the highlands, accompanied by the bucolic splendour of the glens flanked by great mountains, the loveliness of Loch Lomond and the wild remoteness of Rannoch Moor.

The Guide includes:
The route’s historical context with reference to the Way’s ancient associations.
Full colour photography.
Ordnance Survey mapping.
