Review:

Publisher's website 2018

Opened in 1980, the West Highland Way was Scotlandís first Long Distance Route and remains the most popular, with more than 15,000 walkers tackling it each year. It runs from Milngavie, on the outskirts of Glasgow, to Fort William. The 152km route passes along the east of Loch Lomond, the largest expanse of fresh water in Britain, and across Rannoch Moor, Scotlandís grandest wilderness, through some of the finest scenery of mountain and stream, woodland and moorland, that Scotland has to offer. This eleventh edition of the Official Guide has been fully revised and updated to include new information and photography and a new full-colour folding map prepared for this edition by Nicolson Maps, all packaged in a weatherproof plastic wallet.
